Hi,
Has anyone tried the Silverstone HDD Boost yet? It works like the Seagate Momentus XT. But you can use any size SSD to any size HDD.

Now- what happens if you pair that with another SSD?

you would not get much advantage? It acts as a partial RAID1 solution, mirroring your HDD to the SSD.
Mirroring a SSD would just add the overhead and no advantage...

Sounds like a nice product, allowing to get the best of both world, pairing a 2TB drive with a 32/64GB SSD and enjoying the boost. One review shows a nice boost for read and boot up. No gain for write though

Now, what is the price of this? $40. Not too shabby... Still, does not seem to work with multiple partitions, so no go for me...

About $40.00.
