Hi All, I am brand new to the Mini 9... in fact I am doing a little research prior to ordering one today. Do these Super Talent drives actually fit in the Mini 9? In the reviews at NewEgg the faster of the drive will not fit in the Mini9. Are you guys ordering the slower drives? And do they fit?

you need to order the half-height one, it is MADE for the mini 9. The faster ones are not compatible- not only because of size but also interface (they are sata instead of pata but the same connector). If you use the part numbers i posted, you will get the right drives

Received my 32GB ST yesterday.
Can definitely see a difference in write speed, much faster.
Read seems around the same as the stock 16gb stec, perhaps slightly slower at times, but nothing to cry about.
Didn't do a benchmark test as many people all ready have, but i don't need that to visually see the performance as it is.
Over all better performance than the stock, & now i have a 32gb drive Ive been wanting that i can live with, & perhaps permanently if the performance continues to be great, unless of course they come out with a 64gb @ good price
I'm running Linux Mint 6, Felicia Main, perhaps I'll install xp later on and see how that is.
Anyway, if you dont want to wait a decade for a runcore, & want to avoid the crucial drives (Which i would like the plague) & can get the deal above, or even @ $89 like i paid, its seems well worth it.
