Depends on what you do with your VU+
It has enough internal RAM to use, if you don't do anything else as storage in the flash.
I use my Picons in the flash, and it is very fast too

I agree all depends, the box has lot's of storage, if it's only picons for one or two satellites then storing in internal flash isn't a issue, but for a motorised setup with thousands of picons then you might want to think about usb storage, also with storing picons in a usb, as long as the usb doesn't die you will have all your picons available, even after changing images or a image crash etc.

I do have a motorized dish and I have no problems with my picons in the flash.
I keep a backup on my PC.
There is also a big disadvantage or downside when using a USB, I had this before on a VU+DUO2, where the USB kept on warming and forced stoppages or freezers

Yes true there is plenty of space internally, but I have 20,000 picons at the moment, many of which are 400x240 at about 1.5gb, so prefer them in my usb, never had a issue with usb warming up that it freezes.
