Specifications, Pricing and Availability
The Mach Xtreme DIY SATA DOM products comes in five capacity sizes, two form factors, and with either SLC or MLC flash. That's a lot of product SKUs to cover. Capacity ranges from 4GB to 64GB, doubling capacity at each point. Each model can be ordered with either MLC flash, or SLC flash. The form factors are vertical, like what we're showing today, or horizontal for use in 1u cases.
Today we're focusing on three models, 4GB SLC, 16GB SLC, and 32GB MLC, all in the vertical form factor. Over the next few weeks we'll use these drives in storage server reviews, and in an editorial on building a low power router / firewall combination. These are just a couple of examples of what the Mach Xtreme MX-DIY SATA DOMs can be used for; your creativity is really the only limiting factor.
You've seen DOM several times in this review, but I haven't really explained what a DOM actually is. DOM stands for "Disk on Module." Mach Xtreme provided us with the image [above] of a unit without the case on the drive. The silicon you see in the middle is both the SATA to flash controller, and the flash as well.
At the time of writing, we weren't able to find the MX-DIY DOMs for sale, but these products were just announced days ago. A large part of DOM appeal is low-cost so expect these products to cost less than mSATA SSD, and most SSD altogether. It's also important to remember that these are not performance products, they are convenience products that use very low power, and don't require a lot of space, or more importantly, a 2.5" or 3.5" drive bay.
