Have to purchase heatsinks or fan for it also as these babies run hot even with the new update.
Is this a good bundle/price? Been toying with getting one of these to play with
Good price though since the board is usually £54 on there by itself.

Good price really I'm still waiting for a minor revision release to fix the little issues. And I don't need it that badly i have a 3b+ on the living room TV for Kodi and a 2 in one of the bedrooms.

Thanks yeah I read there was some issues with the 4b but didn't read too much of the detail. Any deal breaking issues?

The case is a nice design, but lacks any ventilation holes. As the RPi4 runs hot it can only be used at normal speed (not throttled) if you remove the top of the case. So unfortunately this case is not recommended.

I've replaced this case on my RPi4s with aluminium heatsink 'cases'.
Glad I didn't get one of these a full price a few days ago! Cracking deal.

Just best to use official PSU. Fans maybe needed as it runs hot otherwise i think it's fine for what most people would do. Just working in ict I don't like it has faults like that.
This is probably a better bundle for an extra 8 quid. Lightning deal for 71 - smile.amazon.co.uk/gp/…c=1

The official case offers terrible thermals, and this microsd is larger. Worth noting they're currently working on a firmware update which brings the thermals not that far off a Pi3 - it's in beta right now but the results are pretty great. I'm convinced they'll get the thermals to a very solid point over the next few months.
I don't bother with the case included... I like the Flickr one for my Kodi machines :-) even without using the case it works out cheaper then buying board plus power plus hdmi (official ones)
P&P needs to be added to the headline price as this isn’t free p&p.
Can;t remember the issues this had on release, but have they been fixed, think it was
compatability issue

This is what I am contemplating using this for - using RetroPie it seems relatively stright forward to do.

No, but reading the instructions, it seems pretty easy!

Easy to upload an image to this but the problem is thermal .
there is a flaw with software which causes overheating,in turn will cause graphic issues..
u can’t really push this pi at the moment .
arcade punks for all info on pi gaming ..just a heads up

Even with a cooling fan?

Means u still have to spend money to create a pi kit when u can go with a stable model cheaper price but less kit .
ie a box ??
not a selling point for this model ..wait a while or if u want retro gaming I can tell u how to achieve this on a laptop .easy
heres my laptop running full android emulation and over 3000 retro games most 60fps

The best way to emulate is buy one of these babies ..39185026-HHCCt.jpgOriginal OG Xbox .
soft mod it..easy 5mins,upgrade the hard drive and install an image .

also add xmbc media and u have a serious gaming platform.
Thanks for this, been reading up on Pi headless servers for the last week or so. This has come along just at the right time

I don't think retropie is available for the pi4 yet. I was looking at getting one for Christmas for that...I've decided on getting the PlayStation classic now instead. Cheaper, more stable, and looks pretty good for emulations. Plus, looks like a playstation mini. Of course you can't do as much with it, but for just games it looks like it does the job well.
I've no personal experience of these but anyone concerned about cooling issues may find this video helpful. It's a follow-up to an earlier one but revisits some of the previous results after a recent firmware update:

Tempted to get one of these for an always on pi torrent box connected to my router . I'm not familiar with Linux though. How easy/hard would a torrent box be to set up
Back up to £79 now. Expiring
