Let me see if I have this right, You can use this device in place of a standard " Compact Flash " card.....?

And your camera will not have any problem with recognising it.

And it stacks up alongside normal CF cards price wise, Unlike the usual SSD price rip off.....!

Great idea, In theory then......Smile

This look very promising, not from a camera view but from a Netbook modding view. If this thing has a SATA interface there should be no reason why you couldn't swap out the regular HDD from your EPC and put one of these in it's place.
