Howdy again,

So the 4110 I bought has been sitting in a box for a YEAR. Yes you read that right, one year. It's out now and ready for some work. It was having trouble booting, telling me no OS found so I yanked the 20GB drive, connected it to my drive duplication device and ran a test. I get back a DEAD reading so I did the Ol drop fit, you know, drop it on a table from about 6-10 inches high, this will loosen stuck heads sometimes and what do you know, bingo, it spins up. I imaged the OS to a 64 GB Transcend Solid STate 2.5" IDE drive and it works great. My imaging device will only image the size of the smallest drive so the remaining 44 gigs are now in a partition of its own. This is the second device I have installed a SSD on, there is one running in my Sony S260 now, runs great and here is what I get out of it.

Low heat, very rare that my fans spins up
Better battery life, I would estimate at 15% more run time.
Fast boot up and overall better performance.

Now to clairify I use the less expensive SSD's, they run about $140. They have roughly the same specs as a 7200 RPM drive but with Blazing fast seek and the pros I listed above.

Let's not forget shock proof, I use these same drives in specialized camera systems I build for offroad race vehicles and they stand up to torture.

If anyone wants to try this mod I'm glad to help.

Hi,
Another advantage of SSD is that you do not have to defrag it. Access to all sectors occur at the same speed regardless of their location.

Is yor SSD SATA or PATA?

Hi,
Well PATA is being obsoleted by SATA so I expect that there won't be lots of options for them in the near future.

Hi, what solid state drive usage does anyone have here? Any particular SSDs that you have tried?

If so how did they perform?
