I went for the one I posted the Amazon link to. It has the Marvell controller, and after reading the thinkpad thread, I figured it was compatible with more mSSDs. Before they were sent to me out of the states, I gave my 29s, and the 2 new adapters I bought to Cleve. I am sure he will post his finding with the adapters in the 29s once he acquires an mSSD or 2.

I may have to try one of those, I used the mini one. I keep getting blue screen half way though the windows 7 install.

Thank you for all the input guys.
This is the ebay link for the adapter I'm ordering. The listing has finished but I'm dealing with him directly.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/ULTIMATE-Toughb ... :MESELX:IT
In theory it should allow me to use a conventional sized 2.5" drive.

He said he had stopped making them through lack of interest, but was willing to make another one for $45 plus shipping. I have his email address if anyone was interested.
Thanks for the info on the CF19 as well, I wish I'd known about them before I'd bought the 18 lol. Will keep my eye on prices for them though.

I think mine has a Marvell controller also. I can't remember at the moment...The link and photo was to just give an idea of what works for me. Pretty sure I have a 32gb in it with a Lite version of Win7. I'll start it up later today, If the vertigo :confused: and POUNDING headache have gone away..

Ok I've just bit the bullet and purchased a pretty much mint mk3 CF-19. This incidentally comes with a free CF-18 lol so I'll now have 3x 10" Toughbooks! I'll just put the 18s on ebay and concentrate on the 19 :)
