If you're wanting to get some solid-state storage happening in your system but the big bucks needed turns you off? Addonics make it more appealing with their new 2.5" CompactFlash-to-IDE SSD Adapter. This nifty little device allows one to use CompactFlash Type I and Type II cards in conjunction with a standard IDE interface to provide a bootable SSD capable of running an Operating system off.

 

The best thing about it? Price! DailyTech report that there will be both a single-slot and dual-slot model, at a mere $25 and $30 USD respectively.

 



Addonics has introduced a new CompactFlash to IDE adapter that will give users a relatively cheap and simply way to add solid-state storage (SSD) to their notebook computers.

 

Addonics' single-slot AD44MIDECF and dual-slot AD44MIDE2CF accept CompactFlash cards and plug into a standard 2.5" IDE connector. The adapter features an LED light for drive access, supports CompactFlash Type I and Type II cards, is bootable and supports almost any operating system imaginable.
