I have the 128/8 version and have 56,000 resources on it. Couldn’t be happier. 

Chris, I'm curious how much space your Logos folder takes up on your SG 8GB/128GB.

I run it off the SD card.

But my initial download is a little over 80 gigs if that gives you any idea.

Sounds like SD performance is good, I took a different approach and have been controlling the size of my library on the Surface GO so fa I have downloaded 565 out of a possible 14,877 (which I knew would not fit on the available space on the 128GB SSD).

For me the Surface GO is a good, and reasonably low risk, excuse to get involved with the beta again

I think I will stay with my older surface pro 3 for now.  Bill it all sounds slow and complicated on the new smaller go.

Hello Bill thanks for the info, I'm planning to buy the Surface Go and I've just one question, is it possible when after installing the logos app, that I can go back to S mode? Will my installed logos app run on it?

Jessie, my understanding is that you can’t switch out of S mode for the Logos app and switch back for other apps. It’s all or nothing and once you switch out of S mode you can’t switch back. Someone can correct me if I’m off base on this.

Hello Chris, could you please give us a tutorial of how to transfer the library from the main storage to the external storage?

Thank you.

Running Logos from an SD card (or removable drive) is NOT supported by Faithlife, especially as you can install a smaller library on main storage. When you run the installer, you can choose a Recommended download or Everything. My recommended installation uses 13 GB with 467 resources (out of 2234) on the drive.

You don't need to do this if all resources are on the drive, and you have Logos 8.4 or higher - you can Remove resources from Library to get more free space on the drive.

Is anyone using the Surface Go in Tablet mode also - with Logos?   Or using it to preach from?  I would like to display my sermon on it.

Thanks for your input.

May be a stupid question, but could a really fast SD card actually be faster running Logos than the inbuilt storage in the Surface Go?

It depends!  

If you're talking about the base Surface Go with eMMC internal storage, you might find an sd card that comes close to it in speed.  However, if you're talking about a Go that has an SSD for internal storage, no way.  All the more so if you're talking the Go 2.

Hi Bill Sir

After all theses years and two concurrent back surgeries which thanks be to God above my wife and Jesus got me through...I finally looked into forums and saw your awesome posts again.

Can you and others tell me what fast economical detachable budget tablet or PC or iPad you would use to study via Logos and maybe even preach from?  I want to upgrade or ditch my old Surface Pro 3. Thanks

Hi Josh, it's good to hear from you and I trust you are on the mend.

You have a laundry list of wants/needs here: fast, economical, budget, detachable, something to preach from.

I would recommend an iPad Air, frankly, You'd need to get a keyboard for it, but it comes as close to "budget" and "economical" when compared with the other options. I don't preach, but having preached for 10 years, if I were buying a detachable tablet to preach from, I would want it "to just work." I trust Apple products for that.

I would 2nd that statement. I recently had the chance to try out an iPad Pro and a Surface Pro 7 in my Sunday School class, connecting it to an old portable projector with a VGA connection and an adapter. Surface Pro: nothing. Poked around in settings, eventually gave up. iPad: instant results. The screen was projecting on the wall in a few seconds. Didn't have to do a thing but plug in the adapter cord.

I would love to see what my iPad would do with our new church TV screen, Hmm never even thought about it until now

Which iPad air or iPad pro please? 

I have a huge library. Thin and light is best but cost overruled all other concerns.
