    I have 2 of the HC1 and I have used them with SSDs from SanDisk, Kingston and Silicon Power. No problems with any discs or the SATA controllers.

    I initially tried moving the rootfs to SSD using DietPi, but it did not work for some reason. I ended up putting Ubuntu 18.04 on the microSD and moving it to the SSD manually.
    This video was helpful, though I only needed parts of it, since I partitioned the drive using my desktop PC: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0QdBFpEzwM0

    In DietPi, I installed gdisk and used that to partition the SSD the way I wanted it - roughly following this guide: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/v...ic.php?t=44177

    After that I ran dietpi-drive_manager to set up mount points and copy the rootfs over from the SD card. It was easier than I expected.

    The real test will come next week when my 2TB SSDs arrive and I have to do it all over again and copy over all the music.

    Edit: Can now confirm that - like the 860 EVOs - the Samsung 860 QVO SSDs don't work on the HC1 using DietPi.

    I purchased a couple of Seagate Barracuda 2TB SSDs and they are working well. Absolutely can recommend the HC1 if you want a tiny power efficient and fast server for LMS.

    My HC1 server is working perfectly. Uptime is 35 days and I expect it to be many years unless we have a hurricane. I installed and configured Samba on the HC1 so Windows and Linux desktops can mount the music drive for local playback. Now the system uses about 275mb of RAM.

    I was wondering about something...a completely different question. Suppose I lost my router and LAN. Or suppose I was on backup power and could only power a few things. Couldn't I just take the HC1/LMS and run an ethernet cable right to a SB Boom? Would the Boom find the server without having some kind of DHCP in play?

    Not really, it would necessitate:
    Main System: Touch; Marantz SR-5004 + TMA Premium 905 + TMA Premium 901 + Teufel Ultima 20 Mk 2 + BK Monolith+ FF + Lenovo T460 + Kodi + Pioneer PDP-LX5090H
    Workshop: iPad 32GB Wifi + Squeezepad (local playback activated)
    Wherever needed: Acer Iconia Tab A700 + Squeezeplayer
    Kitchen: iPhone 5s + iPeng (local playback activated) + NAD 312 + Teufel Ultima 20 Mk 2
    Headphone (cozy corner): Lenovo T550 + Squeezelite-X + Cyrus Soundkey + Topping A30 + Focal Elear
    Car: TBC ...

    I've just migrated my LMS server from a RPI 3B+ to an Odroid HC-2. As expected, it's significantly faster.
    While there are benchmarks on the official site, I was interested in how much faster LMS is on this server, so I ran a LMS benchmark.

    Software on the RPI and GC-2 is nearly identical (HC-2 has a newer perl (5.28 vs. 5.26) and SQLite (3.29 vs.3.22))

    LMS benchmark (in seconds, lower is better):
    RPI 3: 20.861
    Odroid HC-2 (slow cores): 18.494
    Odroid HC-2 (fast cores): 5.581

    LMS+TrackStat benchmark (in seconds, lower is better):
    RPI 3: 37.679
    Odroid HC-2 (slow cores): 39.931
    Odroid HC-2 (fast cores): 14.711
    Various SW: Web Interface | Playlist Editor / Generator | Music Classification | Similar Music | Announce | EventTrigger | LMSlib2go | ...
    Various HowTos: build a self-contained LMS | Bluetooth/ALSA | Control LMS with any device | ...
