Can you get TRIM and UASP support on an USB SSD on the #RaspberryPi?

Those are two of the questions I answer in this video (hint: sometimes). In this video I explore the performance and support for TRIM and UASP for the following drives:

– Inatech enclosure (https://amzn.to/2Zqan5S) with Kingston 120GB SSD (https://amzn.to/32iltvB)
– TDBT M.2 enclosure (https://amzn.to/3ihOkFW) with XPG SX6000 128GB NVMe (https://amzn.to/2RdFhd1)
– Corsair Flash Voyager GTX 128GB (https://amzn.to/2RbqcJ2)
– Arcanite 128GB USB 3.1 flash drive (https://amzn.to/32jDuJT)
– SanDisk Ultra Flair 16GB USB 3.0 flash drive (https://amzn.to/2DLRNgK)
