I have about 12 SSDs with capacities from 90GB-200GB, and looking for a good project/use for them, with more SSDs to come over time as the users in the company outgrow these smaller drives. Any suggestions on how to put them to good use ?

We have large capacity server as well as a few Terastations in the network so mass storage is not a big concern, just hate to see these little guys lifeless, collecting dust on a shelf in the storage cabinet. Any suggestions are welcome.

I upgrade older systems with SSDs at work to get them another bit of lifespan. 3-4 years ago most corporate desktops ran platter drives, an SSD upgrade in one of those makes them a lot faster. This all of course depends on your exact situation as far as what you can use them for, we have hundreds of older systems that I can upgrade and they are just fine with 120gb storage.

I put 120's in most of the cheaper laptops that I flip. People are like only 120gb of storage!?!?!, Then I ask what they plan to do with it. Email and Youtube lmao!

Thanks All, for your suggestions, I decided to wipe the drives, and distribute to employees for personal use, no real value on ebay, we are a service company not a retailer, would create additional headaches for the bookkeeper.
