The SD adapter works on my desktop but it benchmarks slower than the spinny Hitachi Travelstar. It reads about 20 mb/s wherea the hitachi reads at about 28 mb/s and write speed is pretty slow at around 10 mb/s, hitachi again is faster especially at 4k read/write speeds, so held off putting it in the laptop.
Currently bidding on a kingspec ssd (IDE) and according to the specs that should be faster but if I get it we will see.
Trouble with the Hitachi it has 8 reallocated blocks which is not a good sign, but it was only 3 quid. I havent looked if the SD adapter has SMART.
Edit: The SD adapter has some smart data including wearable data reading and reallocated sectors so must reserve some of the SD card for bad blocks and nice flashy red led for power and green for drive activity.
