Has anybody put SSDs in these Elite 8000 sff machines yet and if you have what size. HP chat support say only 64GB but cant give me any reason what the machine cant address more than that when it can address a 1TB Hard drive.
Can anybody shed any light on this or tell me they have put in a 500GB SDD and found it works

I put a Sandisk 240 GB SSD in my 8000 Elite CMT and it works just fine.
Didn't want to spend the extra $$$ for a 480 GB one.
I see no reason why you couldn't install a 500 GB SSD.
Bear in mind that it will only run at the SATA II (3.0 GB/S) speed.
The first PC in that class that can run a SATA III HDD or SSD at the SATA III (6.0 GB/S speed) is the 8200 Elite model series.
Also you should be able to install up to a 2 TB mechanical hard drive in the machine.

Brillant thank you now why could I not get that simple anser from Tech support. "as long as you keep to sata II you will be fine" ?
I have the small form factor not the CMT but I dont see why it should be diffent
Even at SATA II speeds it will be a lot faster than the current drive. Shame i cant have them both in this chasis but thank you so much. I might follow your lead and go 240 with an external
