DIY Solid State Hard Drive

If you’ve got extra SD cards lying around, now you can turn them into a fake solid state hard drive for a laptop.

Admittedly, it’s got some issues, namely:
a) all SD cards have to match (either 2 or 4 matching cards)
b) SDHC isn’t supported
c) most laptops don’t have two internal 2.5″ drive bays. 
d) it costs a whopping $261.49 USD (SD cards not included!)

Cost for a 16GB setup?  
$261.49 for the caddy + 4 x $40 for 4GB SD cards = $421.49 USD (plus shipping).  Not cheap compared to hard drive prices.

But it’s still a very interesting piece of geek gear and it’s bound to drop in price.  Keep an eye on this one.
