I want to transform my PI into a media center with XBMC.

Should I use an SD class 10 card or a USB stick to get the best performance out of it?

    for my experience, sd class 10 cards are faster than most cheap usb sticks... you will propably not get any faster in terms of xbmc performance than class 10 with a usb stick, but your data will be more safe because of sd card corruption... – Gotschi Apr 14 '14 at 22:47

    plus you should consider that the number of read/writes you can do in an SD is limited so, for the long term, I'd rather use an USB stick. – javirs Apr 15 '14 at 10:39
