I'm putting together an HTPC*, found thesehttp://www.ebay.com/itm/200904852853?ss ... 1497.l2649
and decided to get 2; one for my HTPC, and one for maybe my CF29. I've been having more and more trouble with my 29/Hitachi 160 sata/adapter. I figured with this ssd being 1/2 size, it would fit with less strain, and
I'm gonna try to secure the drive to the adapter.
Anyone have experience with these? They're sata II 3gb/s
I also scooped up this dvd sata/ide HDD caddy. I never use the cd/dvd on my TB anyway.http://www.ebay.com/itm/290594281867?ss ... 1439.l2649
I wanna jam the SSD/adapter in the HDD caddy, and the Hitachi Sata 160 into the media pocket.
*HTPC I'm building. Specs are as follows
Dell Dimension C531, Athlon X2 4000 2.1ghz, 2gb PC2-6400, PCIe x16 Gforce G315 512MB DVI HDMI, a 500gb hdd, I'm adding a PCI serial card for an IR blaster, and, if my cable is on (bleeding through with my internet) a HVR2250 dual tuner atsc/ntsc tuner card. I'm trying to run linux/xbmc and LIRC to control the rest of my A/V equipment via IP. Being a cheap bass turd, it's a budget HTPC. Total investment there is only about $185
