    That's a bit disappointing...with SSD I would have thought you just use it like a normal drive. I guess the mainstream stuff still has a while to go before being practical and a suitable hard drive replacement.

    I'm not surprised about writes being slow, as copying files to a usb drive is much slower than reading it. Are the SSD drives faster than say a CF hooked up to an IDE port?

    USB memory stick works pretty good with large files, same goes for most MLC SSD drives. But as soon as you do a lot of small writes it chokes and EWF helps alleviate this problem. SSD drives may be a bit better because it has wear level algorithm, and it's optimized for hard drive use. Again the only SSD drive I would purchased today are SLC SSD or the new intel MLC SSD drives.
