    The unique CF - SATA HDD Adapter is designed to enable Compact Flash (CFI/II) media to be used as a direct replacement for a 2.5" SATA hard drive. As a result, any equipment, such as Notebook computer, that uses a 2.5" SATA hard drive can be easily converted to use the low power and shock resistant CF media, just like a SATA solid state drive (SSD). Once installed, the CF appears as an ordinary SATA hard drive to any OS and can be configured as a boot device.

    read more here:

    theres also a double to use 2 cf cards for better storage,same 2.5 size

    places to buy them at $30.23 free shipping single adapter 88.99 dual

    i ran into this and this seems like a good alternative.also u can find compact flash cards 1 tb or more.i do beleive this should work fine

    note:1 tb are not out yet but are in development so right now this harddrive alternative is useless,but in the longrun it wont be

    Would this contraption save on heat and power I presume?

    EDIT: not even financialy feasible...

    I do however see the benefits of it though.

    its 30 bucks for the device and yes its much cooler than a harddrive and can hold greater capacity like i said.i havent priced the cost of the compact flashcards themselves but for 30 bucks for a single and get a 1 tb cf or less than 90 for a dual and get 2 1 tb compact flash,u should save alot of money as far as harddrives go i do beleive
