    I'm looking for a new USB stick and I've had a look at this one:

    The purpose of this stick is for putting a Win8.1/Win10 AIO but I have doubts regarding backwards compatibility at the moment of plugging it into USB ports whether 2.0 or 3.0 and try to boot Windows Boot Manager.

    Iirc, sometimes I have had issues when boot Windows on a USB stick 2.0 on a USB port 3.0.

    Any thoughts or recommendations?

    Also I want to know whether you have some experiences with these two SSDs models:

    "In theory" :rolleyes: USB has always been fully forward and backwards compatible. But sadly, theory and real-world often don't see eye-to-eye.

    USB2.0 was supposed to fix all the problems with USB1.x. Didn't happen. USB3.0 was supposed to fix all the problem with USB2.0. That didn't happen either.

    Still, my advice is to always buy the latest technologies when buying new to minimize compatibility issues, but also to future proof as much as possible.

    I don't have any personal experience with Kingston SSDs but I have no reason not to believe they will be very reliable.
