From time to time, the ExpressCard SSD gets pretty warm during usage, is that normal?
The ExpressCard feels hot due to the smaller footprint of the device. For example, a normal 2.5” hard drive can generate more heat, but is able to dissipate that heat over a proportionately larger area, resulting in what feels like a cooler device.

During our torture tests (extreme environments) the ExpressCard SSD was verified to work even when the internal temperatures climbed higher than 75 degrees Celsius. In our reliability testing (normal user environments) we have not found any cases where a laptop could not handle the additional heat from the ExpressCard SSD.

However, different laptop models are able to dissipate heat more effectively than others. For this reason, we suggest for users that intend to use the ExpressCard SSD for very frequent and heavy read/writes operations to more closely monitor their laptop’s temperature.
