USB flash drives x many = SSD?
With the price of 32GB SSDs still in the >$400 range, can't we build them from smaller USB keys?
I have recently (yesterday, actually), see Corsair Voyager 8GB on sale for $20 after rebate.
Reviews say it has a sustained read of 33MB/s, and write of 16MB/s.
Has anyone tried combining 4 of those to make a 32GB SSD?
Wouldn't that be awesome? assuming RAID-0, that's 132MB/s read, and 64MB/s write, for $80+whatever the controller costs.
But the problem is, someone's got to make those controllers =). It's no problem in Linux. We can just use Linux's software RAID, but I guess we need a hardware solution if we want to use it for Windows.
