First, SSDs in Mini 9 and 10/v are not interchangeable. Check out more in forum to understand differences. As far as Kingspec making a SSD for the Mini 9, it doesn't look like they do at this time. Per their site, they do not list a Mini PCIe 5cm SSD with a PATA interface which is what Mini 9 requires. They only have them with SATA and IDE interfaces.

There are several options for a replacement SSD for your Mini 9 available now. Try searching forum to learn more.


MINI 9: Jade Green, RunCore 64GB SSD, Hyper-X 2GB RAM, Dell 5530 WWAN Card, Dell 1505 WiFi Card, Bluetooth 2.1, 1.3MP Webcam, Leopard 10.5.8 NBI 8.0.3 Final, BIOS A05

I upgraded my A90 to Kingspec 64G SSD, fast performance and cheaper than Runcore. Recommeded.

CCB,

I know this is an old thread but I just bought a Kingspec 32gb on eBay for $42.00. Apart from a two week wait, this is a good buy. It is better than the STEC I replaced. No long pauses on big writes. I also have a runcore 32gb in another mini9. I see little difference.

Just sayin the price dif ($38.00) makes the KingSpec a great buy.

Thanks, that answers a question I've had: should I get the Runcore or is there an alternative that gives similar performance in Win7? The Runcore 32GB is now almost impossible to find, unless someone on eBay is selling theirs for $150.
