Addonics provides a cheap and simple way to add solid-state storage

Addonics has introduced a new CompactFlash to IDE adapter that will give users a relatively cheap and simply way to add solid-state storage (SSD) to their notebook computers.

Addonics’ single-slot AD44MIDECF and dual-slot AD44MIDE2CF accept CompactFlash cards and plug into a standard 2.5" IDE connector. The adapter features an LED light for drive access, supports CompactFlash Type I and Type II cards, is bootable and supports almost any operating system imaginable.

The best thing about the adapter is its affordability. The single-slot version comes in at $25 USD while the dual-slot version can be had for just $30 USD.

Century came up with a similar idea with its 4-slot 2.5" Secure Digital IDE SSD adapter. That device, however, is priced at a whopping $265.92 USD.

Interest in SSDs have been growing in recent months as more annoucements have been made and prices have fallen to somewhat reasonable levels. Within the past month, SanDisk has introduced a 32GB 2.5" SSD priced at $350 USD while Samsung is touting its new 64GB SSD which offers read/write speeds of 65MB/sec and 45MB/sec respectively
