    To get an ssd installed on an iMac I have to remove the screen? Is it worth the upgrade?

    Yes you have and the worth depends on your technical expertise.
    www.ifixit.com has guides with photos, maybe they can help you making a decision.

    It took me less than an hour to replace the HDD in my 2007 Aluminium iMac and it was quite easy, easier than I anticipated, but I built several PCs in the 90s, thus I might have had that advantage.

    i can't find a very good video about it... do you still need to use the suction cups to remove the screen or there is an easier way?? Thanks

    You can use a piece of good, residue-free tape. I used it without problems and cleaned the screen afterwards.
