    The SSD arrived the other day and I finally got round to trying it out today.

    I did some benchmarks with CrystalDiskMark and it benchmarks much faster than the Seagate HDD as expected.

    I copied my Linux install on to it to try out and it did seem to boot faster, but that was hard to measure, because I buggered something up, and now Linux spends 40 seconds polling the floppy drive before it will do anything .

    I notice a lot of SFF cases don't seem to have any external drive bays. One would think a cube PC or a pizza box PC would at least have room for a laptop-size CD drive and a card reader.

    These MicroATX cases from In-Win looks really good.

    But no b***** drive bays!

    Fractal Design have some nice ones. I rather like the Node 202. But, again, NO DRIVE BAYS. I suppose we can accept that on such a small case, but even some of the massive ones are missing drive bays.

    These MicroATX cases from BitFenix looks pretty cool, and they at least have one drive bay.

    Pondering Lian Li's options, they do have one that is a bit smaller than my current one, and has 3 drive bays, but its not much smaller.

    They have some neat 'slim' cases, but they are stupidly expensive at 300+.

    If you fancy something a bit different, you could always go with one of these:
