    Elecom Japan is launching two nanoSSDs in a few weeks that can plug into a SATA motherboard slot.

    This seemed like utter coolness: an SSD that can plug directly into a SATA motherboard slot. Announced earlier today in Japan, Elecom's two new nanoSSDs--the ESD-IDSAA series--measures 25 x 39 x 6.5 mm, and could serve as a startup drive on a main system, or could even serve as a primary drive on a compact Mini-ITX system.

    However, with the small size comes an even smaller storage capacity: 8 GB and 16 GB. Still, the drives offer decent read/write speeds, with read rates of up to 75 MB/sec. and write rates of up to 30 MB/sec. Unlike HDDs, the nanoSSDs feature minimal cooling requirements and are virtually quiet as a mouse.

    The drives won't hit Japanese store shelves for another few weeks, and Elecom hasn't revealed pricing, however pre-orders are already underway. Akihabara News said that GeekStuff4U.com is scheduled to start selling the drives online in a couple of days.

    The best use of it - I think it will make happy OCers alot with minimal bottleneck of the storage device while testing. Think about 2 of these things in RAID0 config. Beside it may also very useful for audio/video encoding & gaming :p
