Howdy...

I've upgraded my 455 to a 460. I understand the new 460s come with SSDs...

Is it possible for me to upgrade my system to an SSD? I'm happy to purchase the SSD and install it if necessary...

Best,

Ben

Really they come with SSD now, that's interesting. The line from engineering used to be that in their testing SSDs were not advisable.

Here's a post making the same reference to SSD drives: http://www.jigsaw24.com/news/news/9681-new-tricasters-get-new-ssd-system-drives-and-media-drives/

Perhaps they overcame the issues that existed 3 years ago: http://forums.newtek.com/showthread.php?112789-Copy-System-HD-of-the-850-to-a-SSD

Time changes many things - including SSDs. Regarding the question about upgrading earlier systems from 'spindle' to SSD, from everything I've heard this is still not recommended.

Hi Steve, The 460 upgraded from 455 is considered earlier system? Did you noticed any difference using SSD?

I'm not running an SSD, but understand that the the differences are reduced startup time, restore time, and also freeing up the internal spindle drive for capture. And yes, earlier is earlier. I've been told it was not just a simple drop-in.
