This is the first I've heard of the idea, a sorta SSD for $135 and 500gbs?

This I gotta see, do you think its up to par with SSD?

When people lose sight, they pray for better vision. Even though the path of ignorance was their choice, they believe it to be an outer entity like karma or bad luck - in thus believing an outer cause will cure it. You want change? Stop throwing dirt in your eyes to attain mercy for looking weak.

They are getting smaller man, might as well make 2.5 drive bays in cases now.

It's a normal hard-drive  with 4gbs of SSD flash like memory to increase performance. Probably extremely great idea for laptops but also tempts me to buy a 50 - 80gb SSD to Raid 0 with two USB 6.0 gbs Hard drives.

He says its just as fast and even faster then SSD which I find hard to believe if it's only running 4gbs of Flash.
