Seeing as how many flash drives are relatively slow, have bad random reads/writes, or generally just run into issues when used as the main drive for a PC because of the limited read writes I was wondering if there is one that is generally recommended to install for an OS (like Lakka). The computer I plan to shove it into only has 8GB of EMMC flash so I figured if I could find a good enough flash drive I could easily exceed that the speeds of that over the PC’s USB 3.0 port.

I used to use USB flash drives but kept running out of real estate on the storage side. From that experience, I’d use the Sandisk Cruzer USB 2.0/3.0 Flash Drives.
The hardcore Ultra drives tend to overheat when connected for an extended period of time and then downclock the memory access controller to slow down data transfer to an absolute crawl. So, even though they have MUCH faster theoretical data speeds, you’ll never even come close to hitting them.
