Raspberry Pi 4 Model B is the latest product in the popular Raspberry Pi range of computers. It offers ground-breaking increases in processor speed, multimedia performance, memory, and connectivity compared to the prior-generation Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+, while retaining backwards compatibility and similar power consumption. The, Raspberry Pi 4 provides desktop performance comparable to entry-level x86 PC systems.

This product's key features include a high-performance 64-bit quad-core processor, dual-display support at resolutions up to 4K via a pair of micro-HDMI ports, hardware video decode at up to 4Kp60, 2GB of RAM, dual-band 2.4/5.0GHz wireless LAN, Bluetooth 5.0, Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0, and PoE capability (via a separate PoE HAT add-on). The dual-band wireless LAN and Bluetooth have modular compliance certification, allowing the board to be designed into end products with significantly reduced compliance testing, improving both cost and time to market.

Broadcom BCM2711, quad-core Cortex-A72 (ARM v8) 64-bit SoC @ 1.5GHzLPDDR4-2400 SDRAM2.4GHz and 5.0GHz IEEE 802.11b/g/n/ac wireless LAN, Bluetooth 5.0, BLETrue Gigabit Ethernet2x USB 3.0 ports, 2x USB 2.0 PortsFully backwards compatible 40-pin GPIO header2x Micro HDMI ports supporting up to 4K 60Hz video resolution2-lane MIPI DSI/CSI ports for camera and display4-pole stereo audio and composite video portMicroSD card slot for loading operating system and data storageRequires 5.1V, 3A power via USB-C or GPIOPoE (Power over Ethernet) enabled (requires PoE HAT)

Sorry about the mess but you asked for it lol The red light from the glass in the pi power. Its running 24/7 pihole. Ive got another similar setup using a cardboard box haha. Thats running a basic website. The blue cable is the usb plugged into the wall.

Any better alternative?
Bought one recently on eBay for a similar price.

Runs a lot hotter than Pi 2s and 3s.

Don't forget cables as you now need a USB-C power supply and micro-HDMI cable.

It's a good price for the bare bones board. They are more than this usually. Yes you may well need more bits but that's the same with all the Pis unless you buy the more expensive kits anyway.

Replaced an i3 Intel NUC with one of these and Pi is better. Power supply and HS about 8, HDMI lead £3, MSD £8 ish. Case £8
Plays 4K.
Have 2 of these and 2 8 GB models. Will only buy 8GB in future but this is still a great price and heated. Have seen on eBay circa £40 quite often but Amazon easy to deal with.

The 4GB would work great as a DIY NAS. Most Synology or QNAP you're lucky to get more than 1GB.

I dont think I bought anything for it extra. I used one if my phones usb cables to power it and ssh into it from the network (eventually connected to wifi). Oh i had to wire a 12v fan to the 5v pins and it works very well for cooling. Ive got it sitting in a litre beer glass from lidls

Stored videos are no problem in playing, but have really struggled with my pi to stream youtube video even at 720p despite a good 200mb broadband connection. Tried few things but none worked so far. Perhaps something for improvement in RPI OS.

Any Synology with 32GB Ram is not competing with a piNAS. I was thinking the recent deals for 90 up to 150.

Nice price for a barebones unit, if your going to put your fingers in the Pi then this is a good starting point.

Oddly I dont find that, they seem to run about the same. Also they seem to be a lot more stable that the v2, If the power gets cut to the P2 I have often found that the SD get corrputed, no such issues with the P4.

Hi, I've been looking at the 8gb what are your thoughts ? As I was thinking of Windows 10
In case anyones wondering, the temps are about 18 dec C lower than without that fan blowing down. Theres no heatsink.

I wouldn't personally put windows 10 on a Pi, Think Windows is a little more power hungry. I am pretty sure it would work but be slow. Perhaps someone else on here has tried.

Im now drink my beer straight from the barrel.
Willing to pay a little extra to buy it from amazon versus ebay here - Way easier to sort out any issues.
Someone talk me out of buying it please. Already have a pi1 and pi2...

Well, it all depends on what you wanna emulate. Think of it was futureproofing

Where does that fan blow the air to?! You want a bottomless glass ideally
I recommend this case, if you want fanless - it does a very good job of keeping it away from the throttle.

I run a 24/7 pihole and as a cups server for a year now and it is in its case with a small heat sink and steadily working at 42 degrees, not sure I would like mine as a jar of pi

I actually thought It would need an outlet but it works very well wihout and reduces the temps by at least 15 deg C or more. I can tell because my pi hole tells me the temp. Try blowing into a glass and see what happens.
Raspberry Pi 2 is the best pihole device imho, as it is still plenty fast enough for the job, uses less power, doesn't get hot at all, and well, what else was I going to do with the one I had lying around?
