going to make a Windows 10 Pro USB stick to run the OS on a mining PC...a test, as it were, to save off using slow arsed HDD or expensive but fast SSD's.

anyone with experience that can make a recommendation?

A hdd will be faster than a sub $50-60 usb, so you might as well just grab a cheap ssd and call it a day or buy a usb for what you are willing to spend but realize it won't be as fast as a hdd. imo

AData UV131 have been bulletproof for me.. been trying like you wouldn't believe to wear one out. Really fast when not FAT32. Also fit really tight into usb ports so it won't rattle loose on ya at any point.

hey Round...no such thing as inexpensive SSD's anymore. :(

I would love/prefer to get an M.2 SSD, but their capacities are huge and I only need 32GB or so since I've only got W10P64 and the tiny NiceHash app on it.

I'm still using a handful of OZC Rally 2.0 USB sticks. So ya, that just happened a couple of years ago. Still work great - use a 16GB version for Win10 loading sticks.

The last 3.0 sticks for work I got were SanDisk Ultra Flair and are pretty good. Smaller than I thought they would be so that is good in one sense. No caps to lose either.

Select all     

I didn't think these were expensive as far as ssds go. Granted not as cheap as a USB drive.
