32GB Transcend 2.5" IDE Internal SSD

I received this SSD from MemomyC.com in good condition. I put it in my desktop computer and noted that it was recognized by the BIOS. I then used it to clone my old 32-GB, 133x, CF, which had been used to boot Windows XP. I noted that the SSD booted somewhat faster than the CF. But it worked only when the CF was also connected to the computer; when used as a stand-alone, it failed to boot. So as a storage unit, the SSD is better than the 133x CF. But I doubt about its booting capability.

Had my doubts this SSD would work on my Win98 computer, but it has been perfect. Had to find a 40pin to 44pin adapter, but once I did that, installation was easy enough. Computer boots up and thinks the SSD is a spinning disc. With no moving parts to fail, I hope to keep this computer running at least another 12 years! John G.

Superb for audio recording

I bought this after a mechanical failure on my old hard drive. It's totally silent, making it great for audio recording, and it is faster. There are comments on the Internet about the life expectancy of SSDs, but as long as they're still quoting figures in numbers of years and not months, I'm not too worried. Excellent!
