Most reliable hardware?

Post by kitenski » Wed Apr 15, 2020 2:02 pm

I've been running on an old grey/pink Pogoplug for many years, for the third time the USB stick has failed, resulting in a read only filesystem that I can't mount and fix anywhere, tried a Mac and a Ubuntu laptop.

So I'm wondering if a Raspberry Pi 4 would be a bit more reliable, or do folk think I'd still have issues with the SD card failing?

I'm considering the 2gb bundle here? https://thepihut.com/collections/raspbe ... tarter-kit

regards,

Greg

Many users use Rpi, i switch since years for a fanless mini pc. Of course it's most expensive but more powerfull.

If you got way more bucks, XCY X41 is a beast

rpi (from2 to4) is my choice (IMHO)
the only weak point is the SD card. Preferably use samsung evo
maybe maybe I'll try for the future microsd-emmc like this

and max quality power source
