    I had an M-Systems 512MB ide flash disk that I used for a simple boot of XP Lite .......well - it sucked. Sometimes the bios would recognize it, other times no - it was really weird. Also, it was noticeably slower than a standard hard drive. I have no problems using a regular hard drive in my carcomputers. I still have the solid state drive.....in a shoe box.

    Those M-Systems DOC's aren't that good for speed. It's not a solid state drive though, just flash. They're mostly meant for small "light-weight" devices that just need reliable storage rather than quick bootup time. Their new uDOC seems to be much better. I've got one on the way. Should be here this week hopefully. They claim it's the fastest embedded storage solution yet. At the very least it'll match my ExtremeIII but without the hassle of the fixed vs removable drive issue.

    Yeah, for the current cost of solid state stuff, I'll just keep ghostin' my carPC hdd, and restore to a new drive when this one craps out.
