If you want compact and not a bulky SSD dangling off it, get the SanDisk Ultra fit USB3.0/3.1 versions.(Samsung do a similar style)
They are a similar price to their uSD counterpart.
Other than everything being blindingly hot so I can't get the thing out without having to turn it all off and leave it.
It pretty quick.
hdparm = 135.41MB/s (read)
DD benchmark = 61.3MB/s (write)
Trying iozone,. Pi I think I just goto the device and run it from a directory
Might the Samsung MUF-128AB be a better option? https://www.samsung.com/us/computing/me ... -256ab-am/
reviews do not mention of any heating issues and its ultra small as well.
I have the 3.0 version of that (and of the SanDisk 3.9 too).
It more that the Pi4 has everything sat at near 60C just doing nothing, the desk is not liking it so much. All the USB ports are just that hot acting as cooling (the ethernet port is cool though, it doesn't seem to aid in cooling).
And the compact devices just get warm hot no matter what, it has to go somewhere, normally that would the the USB port itself.
So neither help each other out.
Shame as it means they void their safety for schools, I couldn't write a risk assessment and recommend them (and we'll have 3 on order for next year if funding goes through).
They would need cases. That more money. Anyone tried HATs on them, the SenseHAT will be interesting and it temperature reporting, the heat it traps in..
It's a shame to hide it all away in case and loose that bare board play with it appeal.
We'll find away and the engineers will find a way. I just don't understand why the idle temps are so high (yes if I was playing a game or hammering it hard).
But it just sits there at the desktop.
With just a SD card, hdmi cable and mouse and keyboard (these are a bit jerky with the usb drive attached too for some reason.)
Early days though (for users).
