New Addonics 2.5 Inch Flash Drive Lets Flash Cards Be Like a 2.5 or 3.5 Inch Solid State Drive

SAN JOSE, CA (December 15, 2011)—Addonics Technologies (http://www.addonics.com) today announced the Addonics 2.5 inch Flash Drive, a family of drive kit solutions that enable common flash memory cards to be used like 2.5 or 3.5 inch SSDs.

The new family of Addonics flash drive kits comes in three different models to work with cards such as CF, CFast media or mSATA SSD.

For example, the Addonics 2.5 inch mSATA Flash drive turns a regular mSATA SSD into a 2.5 inch SSD. The drive frame and the connector mimic the exact size and connector location of a 2.5 inch SATA hard drive. Once the mSATA SSD is mounted inside this 2.5 inch mSATA Flash drive, it can be used just like a standard 2.5 inch SATA hard drive.

The Addonics 2.5 inch mSATA Flash drive provides a low-cost and simple means to upgrade PC and Mac-compatible notebooks because it provides a direct replacement for the current 2.5 inch hard drive with a lower power consuming and shock resistant mSATA SSD.

The 2.5 inch Flash drive can also be used as a 2.5 inch removable hard drive or a 3.5 inch hard drive with the optional 2.5 inch to 3.5 inch drive adapter (called the Addonics Snap-In 25 model). The 2.5-inch Flash drives are operating system independent and no software drivers are required.

The price for the 2.5 inch flash drive is $24.95 for the mSATA model (AD25MSD). The Snap-In 25 adapter is $15.99 (AE25SN35SA).

Your pictures are wrong, it shows a compact flash card whereas the store talks about mSATA SSD found in Macbook Air.

Fitting the mSATA drive into a enclosure and thus making the mSATA drive into a normal SATA drive which then can be used by other computers and not just Macbook AIR as previously.

Check the real pictures from the site: http://www.addonics.com/products/ad25msd.php

It just doesn't make sense to put a compact flash card into a SATA enclosure, it's too slow for any real purpose.

Opps, I just the gun and did not real the store in entirety! :(

They have release three models but I still add, using compact flash cards as a direct replacements makes no sense, it like take a petrol engine out of your car and replace it with a coal fire steam engine!

Do Americans say if they are wrong...it's my bad? :-)
