Isn't this just a DIY hybrid-drive?

So in theory i can get a 16GB SSD and hook it up to my HDD with out having to spend the money to buy a bigger SSD, this would greatly improve the SSD market (to a degree). I would get it right off the bat when it comes to the US and i would get a nice little 16GB SSD.

So say I have a 1.5TB drive + a 128GB SSD hook up to this device. Does BIOS see 1 hard drive? Does Windows see 1 drive? It sounds like a great idea, but does it actually work? That would be badass to just throw this sucker in with an SSD and it automatically copies the most used files over to the SSD for quick access.

 it seems like it's a fusion of RAID and the pagefile.

 

Basicly it loads reacently used programs into a really big RAM

is there already something like this in windows vista / 7 i think you'll find it's called READYBOOST and sounds like this thing just bypasses the need for the USB stick

No, it still requires a USB stick, only a very large one with a SATA interface, also known as an SSD.

But yeah, it's basically ReadyBoost, just using flash storage that's actually fast.
