I am looking for a buyer's guide on usb boot drives that will be used for booting Linux distros. Specifically, I have the following concerns:
- Should I opt for USB 2.0 or 3.0?
- Are there size limitations, like 2GB vs 8GB vs 16GB?
- Are there specific brands to favor or avoid? (ie formatting issues)
- Does the physical style have any affect?
Any other considerations are more than welcome. I have been considering the Kingston Digital DataTraveler SE9 16GB USB 2.0 in particular.
I will likely be using UNetbootin to add the distros. This will be used to explore new distros and portable booting.
