Getting in on solid state storage is still very much a costly affair, but there's more than one way to skin a cat.

The lads over at Engadget have spotted a Compact Flash to SATA adapter which allows the use of not one, not two, but three CompactFlash cards in tandem to be accessed using the SATA interface.



What's this mean? A much more cost effective solution, 'tis what! - The adapter is said to come in at around $190; add three 32GB CompactFlash cards and you've got 96GB of SSD goodness at a fraction of the cost of an actual (and smaller) 64GB SSD.
