To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
there isnt much that I can say about the main bord of raspberry pi4, its the standard product you buy anywhere. But Labists is offering a package for which we will end up paying $20-$25 dollars extra. But considering the fact that there aren't enogh options to get everything at one place and delivered next day, you will end up paying more, lol.
The worst thing is, even paying such a steep price you get a" fan without controller". so you directly mont the fan on power pins and can not mount on actual GPIO pins. so you the fan keeps running even your CPU temp is 30 degrees or even less. it pulls a lot of energy and wastes a lot of enery too. with that power sucking fan on my RPi I cant mount a "USB3 adapter SSD drive", I am using USB 2 now.
It's stupid, but what else will a user do, buy from Amazon US and wait for months for package to come? funny, isnt it?
This is a great buy if you're not after 4k video.. All the parts you need, like the preloaded microSD card, heat sink and fans, cabled, power supply, box, and screws were provided. Also, the product was delivered in 1 day from when I ordered it.
A minor issue is, one of the fans rattles at times during power on, but settles after about 20 sec.
My major issue with this unit is that it does not properly support 4k 60fps video. I bought this unit because its specs state that it supports 4k on both HDMI outputs. I booted up the operating system into the desktop. Here are the details of the issues:
The desktop only supports 4k 30 Hz from the screen resolution drop lists. You have to manually modify a config file to support 4k 60Hz.
I copied a 4k video file (.mp4) onto the microSD card and tried playing it using the VLC media player that came with unit. The player only shows a black screen and does not play the video. It does however, play non-4k videos.
I also did an update and full upgrade (as a super user) on the unit, but this did not fix the 4k issues.
When I play a 4k video (mp4 file on the microSD card, or from the internet) using the supplied Chromium web browser, the video is very jerky. There is no way the unit will play 4k on both HDMI ports at the same time.
Other than this 4k video play back issue, the unit is great. I'm hoping the Raspberry Pi people will have a fix for this issue soon.
