2.5" mSATA Flash drive

This Addonics 2.5" mSATA Flash drive turns a regular mSATA SSD into a 2,5" SSD. The drive frame and the connector mimic the exact size and connector location of a 2.5" SATA hard drive. So once the mSATA SSD is mounted inside this 2.5" mSATA Flash drive, it can be used just like a standard 9mm 2.5" SATA hard drive to direct replace the 2.5" hard drive in Notebook or any computing equipment. The 2.5" mSATA Flash drive is a simple economical solution to replace a mechanical hard drive with a low power shock resistant Solid State Drive.
