I'd like to get some sort of solid state drive for use with a Windows 2k PC. It needs to have an IDE interface. This will be going in a pretty high-end oscilloscope and I'm happy to pay a bit more to get something that's brand-name and reliable.
I know a bunch of people like CF for IDE-interfaced storage since CF cards are compatible with the IDE interface, I believe. These looked like decent options:
However, since it's acting as a drive for an OS, I'm a bit worried about the write limits on it. Should I be concerned about that?
From a quick search, I also saw SSDs with an IDE interface. E.g., https://www.amazon.com/KingSpec-2-5-inch-Soli … r/dp/B008RWKFYE. I have no idea how these are implemented inside.
What are my options? Again, I'd prefer to spend a bit more and get something I'm confident will work and will continue to work at least several years into the future.
