Recycle Your Old microSD Cards Into an SSD Drive

Instead of giving your unwanted memory cards away to your parents, or putting them someplace safe where they'll inevitably get lost, this easy-to-build kit lets you turn a bunch of unused microSD cards into a far more useful SSD drive.

Assembly is as easy as jamming four equally sized microSD cards—we're assuming the drive's on-board RAID controller needs them all of equal capacity—into four slots on the bottom of the circuit board, and then sticking into a 2.5-inch drive bay. Cards up to 32GB in size are supported, giving you a very usable 128GB of high-speed storage, and for best results you'll want to stick with Class 10 cards.


At $80 it's a relatively cheap way to get your hands on an SSD. As long as you've already got a stockpile of unused memory cards that you didn't cheap out on in terms of speed and performance when you originally bought them, [GeekStuff4U]
