USB SSD Drive
Thanks to significant performance improvements in JMicron's latest JMF612 solid state drive controller - we're seeing the return of SSD's with the inclusion of a mini-USB port return to many SSD drives in 2010. The convenience of instantly being able to connect via USB to copy, clone, or transfer data adds value to a solid-state disk purchase, and the revised JMicron controller's increased cache size makes write stuttering and slowdowns a thing of the past.
Examples of the drive well suited to Apple laptop SSD upgrades is the value priced Corsair 60 GB Reactor Series 2.5 Inch Solid State Drive. This new controller delivers great Read/Write performance for less than comparable Indilinx controller based drives of the same capacity - with the benefit of built-in USB.
