Kids don’t be like OP, use the awesome security system that your car came with. Not only can it potentially provide video of the suspect, but it can also act as a strong deterrent. Showing that you’re being recorded on the screen has the potential to scare people off.

I used to be a fool who only turned it on occasionally. Set it to be on at all times, you can create exceptions for home, work, or favorite places. Get a nice big memory stick, I just got 500 GB for $85 on Amazon.

Is this what you got? My memory card doesn’t seem very reliable

Here you go:

Just hook it up under the phone pad (which your car will have the wireless phone charger pad in it) and plug it in. Then go to the screen and go to settings and go to display I think and then go to format drive. You will need to look it up as I don’t remember.

Yes, they both are storage devices. The SSD will last far far longer. Since the price difference is basically inconsequential (Sorry, we drive Teslas. $80 for a 500GB SSD is worth it, vs $40 something for a 256GB SD card), the risk of having a storage device fail prior to or during an incident is too high.

Feel free to save $40 bucks… but when your SD card bites the dust…… you might reconsider.

PS: The price difference is roughly 2X. But the SSD capacity is twice as well.

You can get external SSDs. Here is a link to one that I own personally. There may be better ones out there but this one has been good for me.

Samsung T7 SSD. I only needed the 500g because I only played apex multiplayer on the xbox before I got my PC. But if you play a lot of fast action FPS games get a 1tb to hold all your fast action games.

SSD’s are way faster. The HDD in the xbox is a slow bottleneck. I’m not a computer engineer so I can’t tell you what’s going on, only that it worked for me. You just buy a small SSD and transfer Apex Legends to that storage device. It will seamless play from there. This is the one I bought Other people have mentioned that this didn’t work for them. I’m not sure why. It worked for me and my friend.

Hmm. If I were you, I’d just get something like this $80 SSD and plug it into one of your USB ports. It’ll be a bit slower than your internal SSD (not because the drive itself is slow, but because your USB ports are limited to 5 Gb/s) but I don’t think it’s worth spending more money for something that uses Thunderbolt 2.

I’m not up to speed (heh) in the SSD game but I think this Samsung T7 $154.99 – $50 = $104.99 might be a better deal. Looks to be USB C 3.2 instead of USB 3.0 with a R/W of 1,050 MB/s to 1,000 MB/s compared to the PNY’s 430 MB/s to 400 MB/s.

If I’m wrong I apologize and would greatly appreciate a reccomendation!

This is the one I use for my PS4. It’s a little external drive which functions as added storage. 500GB has been plenty for me but your mileage may vary depending on how many games your BF plays at once.

Happy to answer any questions you may have!

Upgrading by replacing the internal one is possible but physically kinda tricky since everything is accessed by removing the screen, once you’ve got it off you can swap the drive for a 2.5 inch SATA SSD. Can also do an SSD upgrade externally if you don’t mind leaving a drive plugged in, can go via USB 3 or Thunderbolt, here’s an example one you could use https://www.amazon.com/SAMSUNG-Portable-SSD-500GB-MU-PC500T/dp/B0874YS2N7/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=ssd+external+500gb&sr=8-3 , once you’ve got it can use Carbon Copy Cloner to copy the hard drive to the SSD.

An SSD is an absolute must for this game. It increases the speed so significantly its astonishing, and fixes a lot of loading artifacts when just running around the open world.

I bought one of Samsung’s T7 portable SSD’s off amazon (LINK). They have 500gb, 1tb, and 2tb and it works very well on my Xbox One-X.

Load heavy missions it actually improved my speed run times since the clock runs while you are loading (think elevators, etc). It also makes jumping in and out of shepherding or raids much more tolerable.

Yes you can do that but I wouldn’t buy a HDD I would buy an external SSD. Specifically an external SSD with a USBC connection like this . Now to do what you want to do which is install your entire windows OS in that external drive follow this guide. However I would personally do it another way.

The way I would do this is use bootcamp to create a partition of around 50-100gb give or take to install just windows 10 on your Mac’s drive. Then I would use the external SSD to put whatever programs you need to run with windows. That way you can save a good amount of space on your MacBook without compromising as much performance.

I personally have not tried any of these methods. I am simply suggestion what I know based off of my knowledge. The only reason I know this stuff is because I might have to do this in the future when I may have to install windows on my 2020 intel MacBook Pro if I dont get a windows machine in the future. But with this in mind I hope I gave you some ideas on what to do OP.

Make sure you get an actual SSD, not a flash drive. Something like this Samsung drive should work fine. I have this drive from RAVPower, and it’s a bit more expensive but it works very well. I’ve been running a Late 2013 MacBook Pro off of it for a little while now.

SD cards and USB thumbsticks lack the performance (particularly random I/O) and endurance for long-term usage as an OS drive, especially one running a chia full node. My chia farm runs off an EPYC server, but I do have an rPI 4 for other use-cases and I have it booting off an external USB 3 SSD:

Highly recommended.

Something like one of these:

Samsung

SanDisk

Crucial

You can go for smaller drives, just make sure the speed is above 400 MB/s

I know, there are so many out there. I ended up ordering the Samsung T7 from amazon. I heard good things about them working really well. I’m so anxious I keep looking at accessories

Also for floormats, I hate tracking dirt and I have a dog so it makes for cleaning a lot easier
