Hi - New to RPi + to some extent SBCs...
I'm looking to create a setup which has storage additional to the SD Card. I'm thinking of using a 'self-powered' (i.e. off the usb power, not externally powered) USB drive (e.g. the "passport" drives). For game emulation machine. Drive will store roms and associated media. A few questions:
a) Power: will the standard 5V 2.5A supply ensure adequate power from the Pi > USB Drive?
b) Any difference between using a USB2 and USB3 drive. The USB3 drive appear to be better value for money (1TB drives coming in around £60)
c) Planning to use standard Emulation Front End images (RetroPie, Batocera etc) - any special considerations towards which USB drive to buy?
d) Any other recommendations when looking what to buy?
