16GB capacity, Verbatim's ExpressCard SSD is a hot pluggable, high performance solid state disk drive suitable for use in any 34mm or 54mm ExpressCard slot equipped laptop or notebook computer.

Came across this by chance, Amazon doing this for £53.99

I thought this was a good price.

not sure why this is worth it, considering a usb memory stick or an sd card in 16gb capacity is around 17 quid at play.com, which is far more flexible compared to this which only fits some or even most laptops

Got to love how they have 'in provisional liquidation' incorporated into the logo.

You have completely missed the point. These are designed to be very fast drives to boot from, are less prone to breaking due to knocks. They are not designed to be plugged in a USB port to store random data.

120MB/s read speed, 30MB/s write.

Stanard USB flash memory drives don't operate anywhere near that speed. Neither, I'll add, do most 5400RPM internal laptop harddisks.

Install your core OS on this and you'll get a pretty substantial speed-up.

if only twer compatible in the dell mini pcie slot

Gives you great confidence, plus who is going to risk buying anything from a company in liquidation?

Looks like you cant boot from them, according to the review. shame.

As far as I know, CDiscount are no longer shipping orders.

as long as you make a partition "active" you can boot from it, i'm guessing the reviewer didn't.

Most laptops (well I have yet to see one) have no option to boot from express slot in the BIOS. The controller is normally apart of windows.

The only way (possibly) around this is to do a pre-boot of a linux distro to mount the express card to then boot to windows. Which a) May not even work. b) Makes the speed element (at least with boot up) kind of pointless and c) Not realistic for most people.

More to the point "the 16GB SSD ExpressCard will set you back £47 exc VAT" So it should only be £55.23 so I have no Idea where they got £99.99 from.

Has anyone ordered from Cdiscount lately, Ive tried ordering a item but the site wont accept my credit card, not tried a debit card though, just wondering if anyone has ordered and received anything lately?
