I'm glad other companies beside Intel are coming out with mSata SSDs. We can only hope a little competition drives down the pricing!

Samsung may be planning to only sell the PM830 drives to OEM partners, so don't expect to see these in Best Buy.


Really? The only competitors in this sector currently are Intel (too slow, too costly), OCZ (what more can I say?), and the various other players in small quantities.

We need more options in this sector of SSDs.

I hope notebook makers will label their slots because that thing looks a lot like mini PCIe

You cannot use an mSATA drive in any old PCI-e slot it would have to be hard wired for a SATA bus and nealy 0 motherboards PCI-e slots are like that.

I have an x220 and an Asus Tablet and it is a completely different slot that the mSATA goes into.

I am currently using the MyDigitalSSD mSATA with both machines bought the OCZ Drive did not notice any diff between the 2 so I sold it on eBay. It is hard to tell the diff when you are talking 20 times vs. 30 times faster than a hard drive.

Here is a good review on that part.
