I have been waiting for the RunCore SSD for a while and I'm getting impatient.. So now I'm considering a 1.8" Toshiba (MK3008GAL, 30GB). The reason I didn't opt for this before is the fact it has moving parts (sensitive to movements and makes sound).\n\nThe Runcore will probably run ~€70 for 16GB and the Toshiba is ~€45 (both include shipping). The advantage of the Toshiba: direct delivery and price. Advantage of Runcore: silent and insensitive to movement.\n\nI have two questions on the Toshiba:\n1. How noisy is it? I have a 1.8" IDE disk from my iPod 3G which is very, very noisy. Is the 1.8" ZIF noisy as well?\n2. How fast is it? I have seen people state it has a read/write speed of 20MB/s. Is that correct? Seems very slow.. Toshiba specs show the following, which is applicable to the AAO?\n[code]Buffer to Host- PIO 16.6MB/sec\nBuffer to Host- Ultra DMA 100MB/sec[/code]Thanks in advance for your input!
