    i’m thinking of upgrading my storage to an SSD!
    1) what info do i need to know? (how is it connected, housing etc)
    2) what are the recommended makes & models?

    thanks

    How are you going to hook it up? USB casing I guess? USB2 casings are cheap but perhaps one with its own power supply is worth it?

    I am a big fan of the Samsung Evo 850 series.

    Just out of curiosity: wouldn’t a large USB Stick (say 128GB) fit your needs? Much cheaper and drive performance is barely an issue in Retropie.

    thanks for the reply,

    i actually already have 2 USB drives in my RetroPie a 64gb & a 128gb, but thats not enough at the moment

    i could get another 128gb but my mind keeps going back to SSDs

    It is connected through a SATA cable to usb, (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01440BTS8?keywords=sata%20cable&psc=1&qid=1456575414&ref_=sr_1_3&s=pc&sr=1-3-spons) And once plugged into pi, it will act as a big usb drive

    P.S If you attach a SSD like this, Put “usb max current = 1” so it will work properly.
