Default New DIY SSD Accepts Six Secure Digital Cards

The PhotoFast SSD CR-9000 features a standard 2.5" drive form factor along with SATA II and power connectors. Within the chassis are six Secure Digital slots which will allow you to upgrade storage capacity at will.

Using six Transcend 8GB SDHC cards, Impress Watch was able to extract sequential reads of 111.4 MB/sec and sequential writes of 55.17 MB/sec while operating in a RAID-0 configuration. For comparison, the OCZ Core Series is rated at 120 to 143 MB/sec for reads and 80 to 93 MB/sec for writes; Super Talent's upgraded MX Series SSDs clock in at 120MB/sec read and 80MB/sec write.

This DIY SSD would cost you about $235 for 48GB and $391 for 96GB. With pricing for OCZ's Core Series hovering at about $240 after rebate for the 64GB model and $440 after rebate for the 128GB model, this DIY solution might not exactly be the most cost effective route.
