That's what I was expecting too - it should be seen as a SATA drive regardless of the system it's plugged into.

One more peculiar thing I noticed with this SSD drive:

When I put it in a USB 2.0 enclosure and connect to my PS3, the PS3 reports something like "unknown USB device connected". I formatted it as FAT32 (as required by PS3) and that same enclosure is what I use on my PS3 with a 500GB HDD. So I'm stumped.

gonna order two budget SSDs for two systems:

120GB Crucial BX500 and 120GB Lexar NS100.  they're both DRAM-less anyway and I don't really mind for what I'm gonna use them for.  One will go as a game drive/scratch disk for my 2nd PC (for the home) and the other will go to a pretty old low-spec PC which I'm just gonna use in the office for emails/docs when we can go back.  for now, I'm still not sure which ones goes where.
