What do you guys think?
Modyfing your old IEDE drive to a SSD
NO moving parts, likely reducing HD crashes, errors, etc


Would you guys buy this? Thoughts?
I know I'd be the first in line...

Leezone,

That's just a bridge too far.

EIDE is an older interface that was used in virtually all PCs; it has been superseded by the SATA interface, (Most these days being SATA 2 although SATA 3 is starting to become more common place)

SSD (Solid State Drive) is as it says pure solid state hardware, compared to a HDD (Hard Disk Drive) which has spinning discs and moving heads, consequently the replacement of EIDE with SSD request has no meaning.

What I think you mean is either that you would like the EIDE interface converted to a SATA interface so as to give a better data transfer throughput, (Many adaptors are available to do this, however you will still be limited to the same speed as the EIDE interface as to make full use of a SATA drive (Either HDD or SSD) requires a dedicated interface for it) or the EIDE HDD to be replaced with a SATA SSD.

abacus

i'm not looking necessarily for a speed increase
but more of a dependability increase

getting rid of spinning, moving parts should make it more "bulletproof"

AUDYA depends on the HD constantly spinning, so there is a chance that any failure, will be result of HD malfunction

AJ, and Ketron should know more on failures and what causes them.

converting to SSD could be the answer !!!

if AUDYA had 2.5" HD, we probably could just use this:



but then with this, we're all set:

Leezone,

Don't talk about it, get one and try it, but don't say I told you so.
