DIY SSD made of SD Cards!

  1. Mushkin's stuff will be on my top list dude…still nothing wrong with the Eco3, good lord they did something right over there….

  2. Question- I got a new computer and inserted a USB drive, the speed was outstanding – I mean it was blisteringly fast. I then did some windows updates and it went down to a crawl. Now, I’ve never seen file transfer speeds like it again. Did MS throttle usb 2 and usb 3 transfer rates or is there a setting I don’t know about to sort this out? Cheers.

  3. It's cool for hiding information from everyone. Since you would need all the sd cards. Imagine bunch of people have a data that they can't access to unless they are all there with their sd card!

  4. one thing I couldn't see mentioned, UHS-1 or UHS-3 has one special difference from traditional SD-XC or SD cards, which is the lower latency. Using the newer UHS tech means that not only will it transfer quicker, but respond to queries quicker. No sense using any SD RAID without the UHS compatibility, but as you mentioned in your video, why would anyone want to use one?

  5. Let's blow your minds and, horror of horrors, suggest that maybe the point of this is to provide a means of putting a bunch of cheaper, lower capacity SD cards to some use for people that can't afford top of the line SSDs.

  6. Why making this nonsense, stupid video?! It's by design, that it can't compete with a real SSD, the SD Cards are hella much slower, and the controller does have the issue, to bundle read/write access onto all installed SDcards…..therefore also overhead, and it can't being fast by design. It's a completely different kind of memory then being used for instance into a 860 EVO SSD.

    Useless clickbait and time consumer.

  7. Useful for those videos people have saved to their PC and have a ton of those micros laying around doing nothing. More of a media storage than do anything demanding drive.

  8. Ya know, I had this same idea like 4 years ago, after trying something somewhat similar with thumb drives in raid 0. How ever …. I also thought about all the things Linus pointed at that were problems, with doing something like this. Its good to see that someone said "Fuck it, why the hell not" and made a commercially available, albeit, useless product. USA USA USA!
