That's a fair point for a 6 tuner system but the OP is using a Series 3 which if I'm not mistaken is a 2 tuner system. In that case worst case scenario, leaving both tuners on HD channels all the time, gives the drive a life of nearly 7 years.

update on my directivo ssd upgrade

after 5 days, its running fine, except for that menu glitch every now and then. not seeing any reall improved performance, and that's pretty much what i expected. Im sure it will start quicker, but that hasn't been tested by me

the big thing is that its quiet!!!!! for my bedroom, that's all i really wanted!! im sleeping much better now

This is the stupidest thread. If you want something quieter, but a TiVo Mini or DirecTV C31 in the "quiet" room, and the HR44 or Roamio Pro/Plus in another room.

Especially when you condenser the cost of a large SSD drive.

Yup. I have a 500GB one in my laptop, but that's for a $2500 computer with limited internal space.

take a look at the cost of ssd drives lately, you can buy a crucial 480gb for about $250.... that certainly makes it worth installing an ssd now

Really? An 3TB WD drive is going for about $128 (2TB for about $95). With not much real improvement in performance, not sure its still worth it.

If one has super sensitive ears and needs a TiVo in the bedroom 450Mb at $250 may be a good trade off, this would not be for speed, just noise, the fan in my Roamio makes more noise than the drive, but with a SSD one may not even need a fan, or spend the $250 for a Mini for the bedroom, same money more record space and no noise.

Exactly. The Mini/C31 is always going to win.

I would think the power supply needs the cooling more than the drive. Or is the total power supply on a Roamio on the outside?

It is on the basic model, but with switching type power supplies I not sure you need the fan, the hard drive takes up to 1/2 the power of the total unit, so with a SSD drive one would have to measure the internal temp to find out.
Also I don't know if you can format, in any model of the series 4, a drive smaller than the original drive, if you can't, even a 450Mb drive will not work.
