I wish that someone would come out with one of these that
was shorter and could be used, with a SATA/PATA adapter.
There is still a bunch of old equipment that uses the 2.5 PATA.
They could just use a spacer on the other end for SATA applications.
I do use a compact flash with some systems and though it seems to work
well, CF is quite expensive for any decent size.
The SD to PATA adapters that I've tried were slooooooooooooooooooooow.
