    Nada, just plug into the Orange ( or is it Yellow) SATA port.

    I ordered 2x 10 packs.
    <$20 each is a fantastic deal for this DOM.
    Looking at 'fleabay, sellers are asking $85/90 for the SM version.

    What are you going to do with so many of them? Are they all for home?

    I'll keep them for future projects & as spares.
    That 64gig size is perfect as a boot drive with pretty much all hypervisors.

    What is the average life expectancy for a SATA-DOM?

    Do you ever mirror the DOMs?

    I don't mirror the DOMs.
    I think SM used to have a paper that says not to mirror DOMs, not sure if that is still valid today!

    They have a single page PDF that says it's not recommended but doesn't really state why, the DOMs themselves do not seem to be that disposable in terms of specs and endurance. It's probably fine for ESX or low overhead hypervisors but maybe I wouldn't mirror Windows on it? Idk.

    Went out of stock real fast :.)

    I wonder if I can get him to break the pack? ;)

    Quick question, can anyone confirm that this doesn't need powa? It can get its power from the SATA port alone?

    Well, the X9 mobos have a connector on board for a power cable, usually only one though. But I have seen 2 on some. You could check your mobo manual for one, usually it's called "DOM Power" or "SATADOM Power" in the board reference when you're looking at a diagram.
