Raspberry Pi credit-card sized computer

  • Aoc has usb powered 16" monitors

    AOC 1670SWU widescreen, USB powered

  • Few tweaks at dynamic OC (1ghz overclock) sa raspberry pi b+

    samba transfer:
    Read: 9.2mBps
    Write: 10.4mBps

    Test with CrystalDiskMark Shizuku edition with USB HDD on raspi and attached as Network Drive

  • Ordered Pi 2 sa RS.

    Tagal ng leadtime, sa April pa daw ETA. awts..
  • my raspi b+ is now retired for homebrew NAS task. Now it;s back on it's box.

    Now using Pogoplug v2 E02 instead. 50x faster kesa sa raspi kahit siguro yung quad core based walang panama dito. Can attain almost 40mB/s for ext partitions and 28mB/s for NTFS. Using archlinux on pogoplug.
  • +1 for archlinux!
  • ^ nice saan at magkano billi mo sa pogoplug v2 mo??? pa PM.. thanks
  • Pa-PM din po nung sa pogo, ireretire ko na yung rev B ko bigay ko sa kapatid ko as XBMC media player hehe..
  • FYI,

    The Pogo V2 contains a Marvell Kirkwood based on the ARM9 core with no floating-point.
    The Raspberry Pi contains a Broadcom BCM2835 based on the ARM1176 core with hardware floating-point.

    The Kirkwood is designed for NAS and light server tasks. It has Gb ethernet and SATA ports built in (Pogoplug V4).
    The BCM2835 is designed for media playback and games tasks. It has graphics, HDMI out but no ethernet at all.

    The Kirkwood is used in a lot of shipping NAS devices.
    The BCM2835 is used in the Roku 2.

    They're very different beasts.

    Madalas naka-sale sa US sites ang Pogoplug V4 (which is the latest Pogoplug, pero almost the same lang siya sa V2 but it has SATA ports)... maraming versions ang Pogoplug, like Dockstar, Seagate Goflex Home, Seagate GoFlex Net, Pogoplug V2, and Pogoplug V4 (Don't get the Pogoplug Mobile dahil walang SATA yun)...

    I mainly use it as MJPEG-Streamer devices, just install USB (or SATA hard disk), plug a HD webcam, install Debian and MJPG-Streamer and voila, may security camera setup ka na.... more details in my blog http://rolandsoft.blogspot.ca/2012/12/pogoplug-security-camera.html

  • ^you read my post carefully right?

    floarting point or whatever that is useless for homebrew NAS, it needs powerful CPU and has dedicated USB microcontroller and of course gigabit port and most of all, hindi shared sa USB bus ang pheriperal ang pogoplug. Which all of those lacks in raspberry pi that's why it one of the slowest performer as a homebrew nas.

    feel free to correct me if im wrong, but im confidently sure that it will beat even the slowest v4 pogoplugs (which only has 800mhz kirkwood dual core processor while mine has 1.2ghz dual core processor)

    so to be fair I also record on my 720p webcam at 30fps just fine at 30% cpu usage using mplayer as capturing software. hmmmm

    but if you feel that raspberry pi is good enough for you, then hindi na kita masisisi since ok naman talaga ang raspberry pi for what it is, it has GPIO ports and all of things which I pramily use to recover bricked routers via TTL or even reflashing BIOS or reflashing EEPROM or whatever electronic stuff that is.

  • Baka sakin yung reply hehe, di ko nilinaw yung rev B ko eh headless NAS/Transmission BT na ireretire ko sana para gawing XBMC player ng kapatid ko.
    Gamitin ko sana yung pogoplug as replacement, at dahil malapit lang sa pintuan/gate ng bahay yung setup ko, baka kabitan ko na din ng HD webcam para may security cam na din ako hehe :D
  • haha, you got me wrong, di ko naman sinasabi na mas OK ang RPi sa NAS... here's my GoFlex Net (which is a Pogoplug clone) setup with an 8-bay enclosure running Debian and Open Media Vault

  • Sorry I didn't backread this question.. me gumamit naba ng BPI for online payment sa RS Philippine orders?
  • I am planning to buy rpi soon, pwede na ba syang substitute sa pc? internet browsing, can it play youtube?
  • @domotico
    The Raspberry Pi 2 has a quad-core ARMv7 SoC @ 900MHz and 1GB RAM. It's comparable to some tablets and smartphones.
    If you're satisfied with that level of performance, then yes, it can substitute for a PC. In fact, there are some projects that transform an Rpi2 into a laptop.

  • woah, indeed yung GoFlex NET is almost a clone of pogoplug v2 yun nga lang walang SATA Port (which I really dont mind).

    I also tried nas4free in raspberry pi. <click here for link> it works but very slow, I think at default clock nasa 3mBps lang yung transfer rate and at 1ghz nasa 5mBps lang. Not sure how it will perform on Rpi2 sana may makapag try dyan na rpi2 owners and do some minor benchmarking at default clock, and see if it can saturate at least the 100mbit ethernet ng rpi2
  • para sa mga photo enthusiast diyan, mayroon ba sa inyo na plano mag setup ng Raspberry Pi Photo booth? <click here for link>
