USB 3 for file-system

Fri Jul 13, 2012 2:39 pm

Apologies if this has been mentioned elsewhere, but I'd like to report good results using this USB3 memory stick to hold my file-system. I am running Arch and it works very nicely - and it's quick.
:D

Very good...

Although I would say it's probably falling back to USB2.0 speeds because that's all the RPi is capable of supporting. Still USB2.0 speeds are damn fast (like 480Mbps) whereas true USB3.0 speeds would be more like 3Gbps (same speeds as SATA2)

Yes, I realise it won't be running at USB3 speed, but it was not too expensive and has good reviews, so I thought I'd give it a try.
