I just noticed this while looking around for something else - it's a Sandforce chipset SSD and Runcore are fairly good as far as I'm aware.

There's a review of it here:
notebookcheck.net/mSA…tml

I don't have any reason to buy one right now, otherwise I probably would; they're useful for things like the Intel NUC

Check other parts of the store too, it looks like they're clearing all of the runcore mSATA SSDs

Nice!

You can get these working in an older laptop as an IDE drive, using a suitable adapter from ebay for £2.26
ebay.co.uk/itm…2b4

You might need to manually 'trim' them from time to time, if it slows down in use, but I did this with an old Toshiba M100, worked fine, though I was using a Samsung 830 mSATA drive.

I have an OCZ Agility 120 gb ssd for my OS and games, and a 1tb hard drive for the rest of my pc files, would it be useful to get this, if yes, may I ask why?

Its just another 120gb SSD,

Why a manual trim? Shouldn't it be automatic like with any sata ssd?

will this work on old asus eeepc ones with flash drive?

Odd that it's only got a 6 month stock clearance warranty. Surely if it is new it should have a manufacturers warranty?

Well spotted, probably returned goods or refurb. Otherwise they are being a little shafty and probably don't deserve anyone's cash.

Not sure if there msata drives are better than their zif drives, but i hope so, there's tons of reviews around the net saying they seem to fail within a year, good price if reliable mind!

Probably due to the Sandforce SF-2281 controller. I wouldn't buy this SSD myself since there are better mSATA SSDs available.

Not true, it's an mSata SSD, it can be used as a cache drive for the 1TB HDD. (most boards with msata support this)

Is that ide adapter meant for desktops - it looks way too big to fit both adapter + drive inside the laptop?

the drive goes across the pcb, so yes it will fit an ide laptop

Because he's using ide adapter. If you want trim, get a sata adapter instead

It will fit as most laptops from the olden days use 2.5" hdd except newer and thinner one may use 1.8". Whether sata or ide is another question

Good find. I like the way the picture advertising it has a bent pin!
Cheap price though, you are living up to your name.

What are that exactly? To the thicko

after past experiences, i would NEVER ever buy a runcore drive. the one i had failed really early on in its life and when contacting them for a warranty replacement, i never received a reply by email at all. i chased them for over a year and send over 30+ emails, contacted every number on their site (most are foreign language ones that most wont understand). so i now have a drive sitting in my draw thats totally useless. i know quite a few other people with the same issues. just my two cents. not voting on this one though so i dont tip the balance.

Surely it should be the supplier you purchased the drive from who deals with replacements under warranty?

Punters often assume that the manufacturer is the best place to deal with faulty products, understandably & it does seem like they could've been more helpful. However the manufacturer has no obligation to deal with the retail customer. You must contact the business you purchased the goods from. Brush up on your consumer rights first as you will find that you have redress for up to 6 years.
