    Well I have my 3TB drive ready to go in but wanted to see how fast a test setup with a SSD would be. It seems fast but will not know untill I finish and switch to the new 3TB :up:

    that took a bit longer but it might just be the format time for the 3TB drive takes longer. But I got to say it sure is nice and easy to do little test like this :)

    There have been many posts claiming the Tivo is mostly CPU limited. I would think this is still the case even with the increased speed of the Roamios. An SSD may shave a few secs off of some I/O operations.

    Did you time boot up speed? The largest time savings, if any, would likely happen there.

    I did the boot up time was about ten Min with the SSD with the new 3 TB drive it was about 30min.

    Surrealone, I think Devx was asking more for the boot up time for a reboot / power reset, not the initial setup.
