I'm thinking about moving my VMC timeshifting directory to a fast 8Gb USB flash drive (eg Cosair Flash Voyager) using the mklink command that I just discovered - means you can leave your recorded tv directory on a HDD.

Theoretically the USB flash drive I'm planning on getting should be fast enough, however I have heard stories of stuttering with other brands/models, plus I'm wondering how quickly the drive will become available after coming out of S3 sleep - ie you come out of S3 sleep, go straight to watch LiveTV, but the USB stick hasn't yet initialised.

Would love to hear war stories (or success stories) from people who have tried this.
