IDE Disk On Module (DOM)


I have only just found out about these things. Well, that is part of life…we learn new things every day. This happened when I was supposed to fix a kiosk for a client. They were using this as a hard drive. This is a disk-on-module (DOM) hard drive, something like a flash disk but you can connect it to an IDE port and you are spun. It seems that these were designed for industrial computers and since there are no moving parts, like SSDs, they can last a long time. Perfect for your older computers that only accept IDE drives. I am curious…I might get one for my old computer and slave up some SATA drives to it, but use this just too hold the operating system. I think these will hold up pretty well!
