Smart Board

I am gong be building an 8x12 shed this spring and want to use Smart Board on the exterior. The only type that Home Depot carries is 3/8". Is this strong enough to be attached directly onto the 2x4 wood stud walls?

That sure is a real gimmick name (Smart Board).

What is the storage capacity in GB?

They should provide instructions and properties to use such a revolutionary product, since it must be different. Check with your local HD where you bought it. If it is just for a shed with lower expectations, it may be O.K., but the lateral stability it supplies may not be adequate or a baseball impact may cause damage depending on the properties.

Build the shed to last, install OSB on the exterior to make it strong. Siding is "pretty", not structural. I have never seen a "smart" board. Rocks are dumb, so boards run a close second, IMO.

I'm not sure I know what 'smart board' is but I used 3/8" T-111 on a toy shed I built for my grandson 5 or so years ago. It's held up ok although it requires studs on 16" centers, no way would it work on 24" centers.
