Thanks guys, all input welcome.
When running Raspbian even Lite, my ratio of good to bad 16GB SD's is quite high, about 50%.
I even tried 16GB USB and had issues and I really need at least 32GB now.
Most older 8GB SD's worked fine for quite some time,95%, but that was years ago
With Linux OS's getting bigger a reliable solution is need.
Especially if I want to move to Pi3B+ Aarch64 as a development tool.
How fast will a Pi3B+ boot from network?
Will it boot from a POE switch?
But that really is another post.
I have a lot of fun with Zero's booting from USB, time to try Netboot 3B+'s?
I'm dancing on Rainbows.
