thanks. What's the min mb/s it needs to read/write? I don't want to spend too much it is just needs to work efficiently. I've see a 1 tb flash drive on ebay for just £11

Will this be suffice?

I've been testing my h2h with a small 2gb flash drive (unbranded and it seems to respond well)

ebay is full of 16 and 32gb flash drives that have been chipped to show a high capacity
You are not going to get a 1tb flash drive for those prices, that's why I pointed out how much genuine ones are.

You will struggle to mount a cloud drive as a recording destination.
If you want 1tb then you will have to buy an external hdd.

I could come again but cant afford any bigger than 2 tb,dreaming of a 6tb but would fall asleep looking for something only to forget what i was searching for.

Even routing thru my old hdd collection i like the simple connectivity of Toshiba with mains plug and usb cable.
My older Freecom units had an on/off switch and as far as i can remember keep spinning even if box is off.
For recording with e2 boxes you dont want an on/off button.
