Now that's interesting..

I can't imagine it taking off though. I think for server class systems 3.5 or even 5.25 inch SSD systems will become more popular simply because they'll have more capacity. plus you'd have to get a motherboard manufacturer to design these systems with a tubload of 240 pin DDR3 slots.. that's A LOT of circuitry!

It's an interesting concept, but I don't see much advantage to this compared to standard 2.5" or even 1.8" SSDs.

The only place I can see this being a good idea is in cases with limited storage capability. Say a HTPC, or a NAS. I cant see this in a server envrio (the good ones dont use SATA) and for most enthusiasts with large cases...its a non starter.

Actually this would be really cool in something like a mini-ITX HTPC.

I think this is utterly useless. I have my doubts you will find any system that is too small to fit at least a 1.8" SSD.

I was thinking it'd be great for mITX as well, until I realized a lot of mITX boards only have 2 DIMM slots!
