Protogo Device Drive Recommendations

Protogo devices work best when built using fast drives. Unfortunately, many thumb drives tend to perform very poorly when used as a startup disk, especially those thumb drives that are unbranded and very low cost. Even devices that advertise as being fast can ultimately not work well as a startup didsk becaue they have fast read speeds, but very slow write speeds. Below, you will find some drive recommendations for use as a Protogo device that should work quite well. This list will grow as we do additional research.
