Building The ULTIMATE USB Flash Drive!

We set out to build the ultimate DIY USB drive. To do so, we used a high speed M.2 SSD and Silverstone’s new MS09 M.2 to USB 3.1 Gen2 adapter. Let’s see how well it worked!

You gotta test this with a better SSD, like 860 EVO that is at least 500GB, so that it would not run out of buffer.

NASIRUB1 says:

I started playing my games off 2.0 flash drives years ago in the early 2000’s and then later I would use a portable laptop hard drive to run my games off of, I now started to run my operating systems off my portable ssd so that way I can use Windows, Linux or Mac on any computer while I’m on the go. I love technology!
