Does pfSense support UASP ( USB Attached SCSI ) (updated: yes)
Does pfSense support UASP?
I just burned through a mSATA SSD with pfSense in 13 days. :(.
Looking to buy an external USB 3 hard drive enclosure, drop spinning rust in there, and not have to worry about it for a few years.
The only ports on the board are mSATA. It is impossible to find a HDD for mSATA. Does have a USB 3 port though, so seems obvious.
I really cannot put the logs on a ramdisk, need persistence after crash. Also running squid and pfblockerNG.

How did you manage that?
not much really.
Upped the log file size to 10 megabytes. ( x20 = 200 megabytes )
Installed squid (transparent http only) with 14 gigabyte local disk cache (only filled maybe 1/4 of that before death). refresh_pattern . 0 95% 43200
Installed pfBlockerNG with DNSBL. Had a few lists updating hourly.
Had about a 100 clients, 1/2 of which were mobile phones, 1/4 were smart TVs.
The SSD in question came with the unit I purchased:

Well then you could perhaps RMA the faulty SSD, instead of inventing whacky things. No, SSDs do NOT die in two weeks normally.
pfsense 2.4.0-RELEASE (amd64) does support UASP.

My next mission is to figure out how to test the actual speed it achieves.
Edit: build in speed test:
