I found an IDE SSD

So when I say I thought I've seen everything I really thought I have.  Since 2009/2010, I have built over 850 PC's and worked on thousands of others.  Many XP/Win 2000 systems when I worked for a PC Shop in 2010.  I've used every single Consumer CPU since the Phenom I/Core 2 era and GPU since the 9000 NVidia Series and 4000 AMD Series.  So when I saw this gem today out of a customers PC, I was blown away.  Even my dad who has been working on computers since the 90s didn't believe me.

I've never come across one personally but I was aware they are out in the wild. What machine did it come out of?

I almost bought one for an older computer I later scrapped. I rather regret that honestly. Too late now :(

Why would they even make one?

As long as anyone is oppressed, no one will be safe and free.

One has to be proactive, not reactive, to ensure the safety of one's data so backup your data! And RAID is NOT a backup!

Well...   since I assume at that time IDE speed was generally the limit for conventional hard-drives, an SSD would still provide better seek times?

I've never seen one of those in the flesh, but I knew some IDE SSDs existed.

 

I wonder what an MFM / RLL / ST-506 interface SSD might have been like....

 

 

Oh!...

 

Any idea how many IDE or MFM hard drives it might take in RAID 0 or whatever, to match the 4K random IOPS of a single Optane or high-end NVMe SSD, at maybe Q128T1 or something?

I'll grant you that but, how many computers using IDE can still be around? There can't be much of a market for it.

Yeah, true the retro market may still is lucrative,  for fun I just googled and found this 

 

128GB for 81€, seems like a good deal,  for the seller! ?
