Is this FM Server folly!? (USB 2)

Your post

I have a  client insisting on hosting my database on an external SSD connected to an iMac via an external USB 2 port. I've tried to tell him that it's a bad idea...that the access speeds and latency of USB 2 will seriously hurt server performance!

Maybe if I can send him a few other adjectives from other seasoned pros he will listen to me.

What say you? Am I exaggerating the performance hit or is this a horrible idea?
