Gotcha...I will have to see what I can find...thanks for all the information. :geek:

Edit: I checked all the sources that appear on the official Raspberry Pi website, and they're all pre-order or out of stock. :o

Tried a new SDD today.
An Inland Platinum 500GB SSD 3D NAND USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type C External Solid State Drive. (cost $45.99)
https://www.microcenter.com/product/643387/inland-platinum-500gb-ssd-3d-nand-usb-32-gen-2-type-c-external-solid-state-drive
This External SSD is physically small, no dimensions listed on the box, I measured approximately 2.5" x 1.5" x 3/8".

Ran the speed test on this SSD 8 times

Slowest Run
Sequential write speed 368179 KB/sec (target 10000) - PASS
Random write speed 28794 IOPS (target 500) - PASS
Random read speed 7145 IOPS (target 1500) - PASS

Fastest Run
Sequential write speed 390095 KB/sec (target 10000) - PASS
Random write speed 27911 IOPS (target 500) - PASS
Random read speed 13884 IOPS (target 1500) - PASS

It is much faster than a micro SD card, but seems, to have a slower random read speed then my old vintage SSD.

I am happy with the new SSD, it came with two short USB 3 cables, USB C to C and a USB C to A, I like its small physical size.

Once I can get this R-Pi, I have a PNY ELITE 480GB PSSD (USB 3.1) already set up and waiting.

Question, what is J& on the Pi5 for?? I know the one by the RTC batt connector is an alt power button hook up, but no mention of what J7 is.

On the Raspberry Pi 5, the composite video has moved to J7, next to HDMI 1, this is an unpopulated through-hole 'socket' on the board where a connection can be soldered to for composite video.
