Is that really a fair comparison though? They’re quite a bit different in price. I use 2 of these around the house connected to a central kodi library and it works really well. Inclusion of CEC so the tv remote controls it makes it very seamless. Only downside of the pi as a kodi box is its inability to output HD audio if you have remuxes.
I HATE this about mine. I have to get a blade to sort of pick at the surface of the card to pull it out of the slot. Could just stick a bit of tape on it as a tab I suppose, but it's still annoying. A little recess so I could pinch the end of the card is all it would take.
It would be good if they re-routed/covered the ports the same way the RetroFlag cases do. The little MegaPi case is great because of that: it routes the power, audio, HDMI and ethernet to the back, 2 USB to the front and covers the other 2 USB and SD in hatches at the side - Even includes a safe shutdown and reset.
Merkins and their aluminum upto no good!
Basically they're knocking the p&p off. I do love a good deal but it smacks a bit when they slap on p&p. I know it's not free to send stuff but it still hurts my wallet.
