USB Flash Drive Recomendations

  • For those running pfSense on a USB flash drive.  To ensure the best performance use a flash drive rated for ReadyBoost.

    Installation, upgrade, etc. can be agonizingly slow on a USB flash drive not rated for ReadyBoost.

  • Readyboost is a windows term,
    Yes it claims that it meets a certian speed requirement, but this day and age, just get a good branded device and call it good
    USB 2.0 or USB 3.0,

    just make sure it's not cheap big-box store brand, and you'll be fine

    (FYI, i've converted almost all of my USB2 thumbdrives to USB3.0 - they are faster even on usb2 ports)
