On a number of motherboards that we look at today, we find a feature

that to some is a little overlooked and in some cases ignored

altogether, namely the mSATA port. mSATA is not a brand new technology

in its own right and has been around for a few years now, mainly in

the laptop and notebook markets where space is at a premium and the

compact build of the drives is well suited.


As said, mSATA has more recently been making an appearance on

motherboards for the desktop market, yet with a fairly limited

capacity in respect to a traditional size SSD its not one that most

users will automatically turn to. There are a number times however

where an mSATA drive fits the job requirements perfectly. One example

of a suitable installation would be for a system with a very small OS

footprint and where virtually no onboard storage is required such as a

POS system. The type of use and where most home users would have this

installed, would be for drive caching and system speed boosting via

Intel's Smart Response Technology.


We know ADATA have been around for many years and their bread and

butter of their product line up has always been around DRAM modules

for the consumer and enterprise markets but this has soon expanded out

into other areas of flash storage such as SSDs. The SP300 itself comes

as part of the manufacturer's expansion into the mSATA division and

lies in the middle of a set of three drives. The SP300 comes in 24GB,

32GB and 64GB capacities, each fitted with a SandForce SF-2141

controller offering upto 280MB/s read and 260MB/s write speeds from

the MLC NAND flash memory on a SATA 3Gbps interface.
