    Hi ALL, not been on for a long time as my trusted CF-19's are still going strong. I had them for a very long time, Im getting older and my eye sight is not getting any better, I have in my shop a crappy plastic no make i7 laptop that I plug into a large TV via HDMI, the large TV is on a large TV stand with wheels.
    I am liking the setup as I can see the large screen from inside a vehicle when Ive got scope hooked up and need to operate throttle, brake, clutch.

    I do do a lot of field work so would need to have laptop \ tablet with me

    I have been looking at the FZ-G1 to replace 1 or both CF-19's, I do have 5 good batteries for the CF-19's, a lind vehicle charger and both are fitted with Samsung SSD, 1 is 750gb the other 1tb


    what Im thinking is, 1 FZ-G1 with 2tb SSD and dock bolted to the back of the TV set-up, if the CF-19's had HDMI out i'd prob not be even thinking about it, whats you thoughts on this?

    Thanks

    I like the FZ-G1's a lot.
    One thing to be aware of is the FZ-G1 uses MSATA drive not a standard sata. The MSATA does cost more.

    That makes a difference as my main CF-19 I think is only a Mk4 with USB 2

    Yes I know, my other is a MK6, how much work would it be, if I swapped the SSD's over, I thinking loads because of all the drivers

    Are you running Win7 or 10? You should be able to just move the drive. It would be a good idea to back the drive up 1st.
