“Transcend is proud to launch the 8GB 40-pin Vertical High Speed IFM (IDE Flash Module)… Transcend’s 8GB 40-pin IDE Flash Modules (Vertical Type) are the perfect choice for those who need performance and reliability.” What do they have to be proud about? IDE is on it’s last legs. SATA is where it’s at.

Oh really? scoffs Well maybe it’s old fashioned, call me old fashioned but most external cases are still IDE. Most computers still have IDE ports. IDE to PCI/PCIE cards still exist. Hard disks still come in IDE. For heck’s sake - media boxes, PVR’s still use IDE hard drives. CF cards are a form of IDE, most iPods use a IDE-type interface through a ZIF connector. Burners still come in IDE (with less compatibility issues as well). Honestly - I love my IDE the way it is - no one will ever take it away from me (for the next few years) :wink:

@ Waethorn Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. I want one of those new SSDs, but what’s with the IDE interface? @ lui_gough Don’t get your knickers in a knot. All we’re saying is that IDE isn’t as popular as it once was and they should offer IDE and SATA versions.
