SSD is a Solid State Drive and has been since the thread was started.
I'm lost in his logic:"i would not use an SSD because of the heat factor and it triggering the cooling fans to do there job"
And I'm lost in your logic. An SSD and HDD both have pros and cons. That said, depending on how it's to be used will dictate whether a SSD or HDD is best.
there is a lot of evidence of less heat dissipation from SSD, just read back a few pages;
and please don't point to me, I'm asking where is logic in krel's post ?
just read it and pull the idea of heat factor of SSD vs HDD
Somewhere back in this thread someone posted not to use an SSD internally in a DVR because it is too hot in there for an SSD. I don't personally agree with that logic but that is what that post was referencing.
Yes indeed. You are the news. Where have you been?
I've had the 1TB SSD running internally in the 44 for several weeks and there's nothing wrong with it. Must have been the TT dock, as I suspected. The 44 crashed a couple of times after I stuck the SSD in it but that stopped and it's running well now. I have no idea what caused the 44 to go down. I did get a Crucial 2TB SSD for the 44 but I haven't had a chance to do anything with my DVRs for weeks, been dealing with a central air conditioner that won't work correctly. A story for another time.
If you know where those posts are would you supply a link? I searched the thread for them but couldn't find them.
That's pulled from tech sheets of each model SSD and HDD
And yet, you wrote this: there is a lot of evidence of less heat dissipation from SSD, just read back a few pages.
that's right - I mean facts taken from mfg tech data about each type and model of SSD and HDD …
anyway SSD consuming much less energy, so it dissipate it eg heating environment less then HDD
While I am here I might as well say it's August and I put the first SSD on the 44 two years ago this month. Have not lost one SSD and I have no complaints about them. All of my 24s are running well with the SSDs on them and the 44 just got a new 2TB drive mounted externally. I did say I was gonna mount it internally but it's so easy to external devices using SSDs...I changed my mind. Digging the HDD out of the 44 and putting it back in was an ordeal I can live without. I took the original 1TB Samsung SSD to a 24-500 that had a 500GB SSD on it and made the swap. Both installations were easy and surprisingly quick.
Not my point, I was looking for the link.
OK, links to … all mfg sites, all tech info out there. Original ! Not hearsay
Looking at the spec sheets won't do you much good to determine the energy use / heat output of an SSD. Modern SSDs are capable of throughput 100x what is required in a DVR, so they won't come anywhere near their max power draw in the spec sheet.
It's not linear dependency
… just comparing by typical power consumption will give real picture.
If you like to see in real life , you can make a test - measure power consumption of SSD and HDD inside DVR during 24 hrs run; it would cover all typical tasks and will show you the difference in consumption. Add to that logging a thermocouple and you are golden.
It's having 43 DVR's running with their cases open and SSDs installed when it's 95 degrees and humid outside, my friend...
What docking stations are people using now? It seems as though the original manufacturers of these aren't making them any more.
