    Pretty sure SSD-Z is wrong. I plugged my Sandisk EXtreme Pro Flash drive in, it's not even been filled up once, yet SSD-Z shows that I've written 37PB to it.

    try SSD life for more reliable results.

    SSD Life gave me unreadable (0.0) for 3 of the lite-ons.
    My 840 Pro it said about 10tb (and id think that'd be accurate)

    Yeah, SSD Life just says it's excellent, and shows 0.0 for me too. Oh well, either way they were cheap and it's way better than the mechanical drive that was in this PC.

    Would it be worth getting one of these for a main OS drive in my desktop system? Going to reinstall Windows when my new CPU arrives. Currently have a 1TB Caviar Black with a side 320gb Caviar Blue storage drive.

    Hells yeah.
    Lose the 320, boot off the SSD and store on the black.

    What do you guys use to read smart?

    Just got the adapter and going to clone a drive to measure actual boot time difference :)

    Yeah I've got a couple spare I think. Cos I bought the straight-up adaptors off eBay and then I bought adaptors in 2.5" cases off AliExpress :thumbup:

    Has anyone tried these with storage spaces on server 2012 r2 as a storage tier and/or WBC? Make much difference?

    Looking at ways to improve parity write speeds...

    This is what I am running on my SS array.

    If you want to run parity, you need columns of 4. It seems to have a global hot spare, so it can use 2 disks for parity. Which also means you need 4 SSDs for the Journal. You can not use tiered storage for parity.

    I get around 450MB/sec read and 250MB/sec write. (8x4Tb HDD,4x128Gb SSD)

    I did some mirrored spaces with column=8, the speeds were reallya good (800-1200MB/sec). I think this is more an enterprise product which needed 30+ spindles.

    You can't use this adapter. These are not mSATA.
    If you want a 2nd hand one you'd be better off/easier to get one from the sales forum.

    Oh, thought it said mSATA in the description.

    What exactly would I need then? m2?

    Whoops, disregard what I said before. I get it has to be m2 NGFF to Sata 3. Anyone using it as their main OS drive though? Dunno whether to trust them.

    Working fine for me as my main boot os. Using the same sort of 2.5" case you linked to, but the correct one. (the ngff or whatever) Got mine from aliexpress.
    So that case, with the sandisk ssd and works fine. Lots faster than my old 750gb hdd and I don't even have the fast sata ports. (old 775 setup)
