Rather than using a hard drive, would any portable SSD USB drive work fine, recording and playing back TV programmes, if connected to the Samsung QN90A QE50QN94AATXXU 50" Smart 4K Ultra HD HDR Neo QLED TV please?
An SSD uses less energy than a mechanical HDD so most likely won't need a separate power adaptor?
@questions2ask: For a USB device for recording, it is recommended to use a USB hard disk that supports USB 2.0 or later and 5,400 rpm or higher. RAID-type USB hard drives and USB memory sticks are not supported.
Yes, I was reading that on page 153 and 157 of the pdf instructions ( OSNDVBEUA-7.2.0_EM_OSCAR_EU_ENG_210910.0.pdf )
' • For a USB device for recording, it is recommended to use the USB hard disk that supports USB 2.0 or later and 5,400 rpm or higher. However, RAID-type USB hard drives are not supported. '
' • The TV supports the FAT, exFAT and NTFS file systems. '
' • When connecting an external hard drive, use the USB (HDD 5V 1A) port. We recommend that you use an external hard drive with its own power adapter. '
So power consumption is an issue, even with a 1A output.
What I was wondering is if an external SSD drive would work?
Less power drain, faster speeds. In many instances, HDD can be interchanged with SSD (unlike USB sticks).
