Satadom: finally on “sata”-speed and with integrated power pins in the connector. Hopefully on reasonable price. They should integrate this in dev-boards.
I had ide dom disks in the past but never went for sata as to expensive and to slow and to little storage. With thes satadom modules the speed and size is OK now, but at which cost?

No you haven’ t missed anythings, SATA DOM’s are usually used in industrial PC’s as boot drives, as they’re comparatively reliable and fast, but they’re not cheap. There’s no sensible reason to use one in regular applications compared to using mSATA or M.2 drives and I don’t really understand why ECS has gone down this route unless they’ve got a bunch of spare drives, but at 32GB, this doesn’t seem very likely, so the only thing that comes to mind is that they got a batch of cheap ones from somewhere.

Pretty interesting but I don’t really see a point for the wireless charging surface there… I mean the USB ports are right there and won’t the surface get really hot…
