The Side SSD has more to it. I believe it has a lemo connector and possible an on off switch, which both drive up the price.Originally Posted by Michael Hastings
Where has it been finalized that there would a charge for the epics ssd side module? It was my understanding that the ssd is the standard and CF module is no more (except as a future option - think still shooters with lots of cfs), and that Jim hasn't decided if or what the add'l charge would be. If you look at the red station modules both cf and ssd are $250 so add'l hardware cost should be minimal and presumable no more than $250 at most since the entire separate ssd unit is $250 retail - the side plate is otherwise essentially the same with the LCD connectors, rec switch, etc. so once you decide to go in that direction in volume costs should be almost the same.
