Build your own 3.5” Solid State Drive (SSD) using up to eight SD cards. For large capacity SDHC (SD High Capacity) are accepted.

Sadly only available in Japan… :frowning:

Costs 22,800.00 yen -> $250

I wonder what speed is like with this device, and if it access the SD cards in parallel, in the same way that gen2 SSD accesses NAND.

It is still cheaper to just buy a SSD than to try a DIY kit like that one by the time you pay $250.00 for the kit
and then buy 8 class 10 SDHC flash chips to get the needed speed and large capacity. The way I figured it up
with the kit and 8 32GB class 10 SDHC flash chips it was well over $1000.00+ and you can buy a 256GB SSD for
$700.00 or less and have the full factory warranty on it. Then there is the question that Dee brought up about if
it would access the SDHC cards in parallel or not I believe I’d rather trust a regular SSD myself. :iagree:
