    Hi everyone!

    I was wondering, whether using USB stick as ux0 on my PS TV will affect loading times/stability in games as compared to using microsd card with SD2VITA and Storagemgr?

    Will different USB sticks have different performance? I know there's no point in using 3.0 sticks, since PS TV only has a 2.0 port, but will better USB stick have better performance?

    Which method (microsd or USB) is preferable/more reliable? Or there's really not that much of a difference?

    Thanks in advance.

    me personally I prefer to have the SD2Vita as the ux0 then use the usb drive as uma0 for PSP/PS1 games...... when I tried using the USB as ux0 sometimes it worked fine and sometimes the PSTV would boot up before it accessed the usb drive; needing a restart and database refresh......
