    Or try RunCore SSDs...

    If you want more speed then look for RunCore SSD upgrades for the EEE and Mini9... much better than these Crucial units...

    Dell mini9

    I have tried the dell mini9 with the crucial upgrade and found it increadibly slow, leaving the machine unresponsive and slow, ended up returning it and getting a 16GB SDHC card instead, random access on small files was the downfall of this memory unit reducing the speed down to 180Kbytes/s at times, the original unit could do 4.73Mbytes/s.

    I agree with the first poster. I bought a RunCore pro card for my Eee 900 - its now a serious computer - I'm getting 120Mb read and 80Mb write speeds from it... OK, it was quite a bit more pricey than this crucial unit, but well worth the extra dosh.

    3rd the runcore comments

    It baffles me why crucial would release such a crap product 3-4 later than the runcores have been available

    For Dell Mini 9

    Crucial 64gb 40 Mb/s Read 15 Mb/s Write - Approx £140

    Runcore 64Gb 78 Mb/s Read 44 Mb/s Write - Approx £190

    Double - triple the performance for 50 quid more is a no brainer. If you cant afford the 64Gb run core the 32GB is only £100-ish
