Boot Raspberry Pi / OpenPlotter 2 From USB SSD
Im assembling my OP project now in my living room so I have no real world experience with it. I am using a Pi 4, 4gb and was disappointed at the lag when loading and switching between charts. Put this together with what I've heard about the Pi eating SD cards and I thought switching to a faster and more reliable SSD would be a good idea.

If you are happy with what you have, and it has been reliable, why change now?  I had the SSD in a drawer, so all I needed was a $15 cable. The speed difference for me was dramatic. Personally, I'd do it again even if I had to buy the drive too. When native boot from USB is in beta now...if you are starting a new project, this would be the first thing I'd get working.
