Thanks for that, Alex.  This is the first I've heard of any re-brandings.
8GB is certainly better than 1.2. :-)   I'll keep this in mind, but I'm
holding out for a little longer for the chb-25int, as I would like to break
that 8gb limit.

I already have a 32GB IDE SSD to use.  If I really can't find the CHB-25INT,
then I'll get one of these ADTX ones and I expect it will still work but
only see 8GB of the SSD.  Getting 10MB/s on my SPARCbook 3gx will make it
very usable.

Incidentally, if anyone has a CHB-25INT they'd like to part with, I'll pay
$100 for the first operational one plus shipping.
