SSD in a Magnavox 5xx series
I was wondering if anyone has tried installing a SSD into a Magnavox 515/535 - I happen to have a spare 256GB SATA SSD lying around and I thought that it would make for a neat experiment.
I know that SSDs have a lower write life to their NAND devices than a traditional magnetic HDD, and over time, that may be an issue, but I wonder if it would make any difference in access speeds, etc. Anything worthwhile, anyway.
Also, since I do a lot of editing with the Magnavox - the only quick way of doing it I have found, is the supplied NC003 remote - I am familiar with the button layout, and I can zap commercials from a 30-minute sitcom in about 3.5-4 minutes! - I was just wondering if someone has found a remote with slightly larger buttons and a better button layout - if there is something that you all use for editing that you prefer, please do let me know.
