Eh, I probably wouldn't do that, either. I'd like to, because, well, I've been playing with SSDs and they're cool
, but, yeah, still too expensive for some applications.
Like I said: Got 'em in my new desktop/server at home. Blazing fast, utterly quiet, no heat and a fraction of the power consumption of an equivalent number of spinning rust drives. Same for my work laptop. Boss let me buy one with which to experiment. Doubled the laptop's time on battery, at least
. And bloody fast. It's like a new laptop.
But, if we keep the DVR+, it'll be getting a plain old 1TB WD My Passport Ultra
Speaking of the DVR+: Watched a recorded show, last night. We were both quite pleased with the behaviour of the unit. We were especially
pleased to see we had the ability to activate closed captions on recorded content.
I need to see if I have an unused S/PDIF input on my receiver. It would be nice to get 5:1 sound out of the thing.
