The raspberry pi is not complicated, just think of it as a mobile phone with more usable ports or a mini single board computer. Yes it runs on linux primarily but the sd-card images provided are ready to go.

The NES was a commercial flop here in the UK so all of this fake nostalgia for it when hardly anybody in the UK owned one during that era is most peculiar.


I was born in 86 and grew up on a NES, all my mates had one too.

Dont know what cave you grew up in but it definitely was not a flop
dmoore815 h, 59 m ago

And the fake nostalgia surrounding the NES? What a ridiculous comment.


Now that's a "ridiculous comment". Nostalgia for a product that proportionately few people actually owned in the UK and much else of Europe is indeed ridiculous. People having the warm glow of nostalgia for a product that existed back in their childhood despite them, in common with most other people in the Continent, never having originally owned the product. That's mental!

In the days of 8-bit gaming it was all about home computers (Spectrum, C-64, etc) and to some extent the Sega Master System.

Until Game Boy and SNES arrived Nintendo weren't that big a deal at all in the UK.



May not have been as popular as the home computers-I myself had an Amiga 1200 (not at the same time obviously), but I certainly wouldn’t call the NES a flop. I remember having quite a few friends at school that I was able to swap games with.

Ordered two at the start of December, paid a quid for quicker delivery, had them within 2 weeks. No import charges, both working just fine. If something goes wrong with them, I'm happy to accept the risk for the price. At this price, they're almost disposable anyway, so I'm not too concerned about a warranty.

Some people may have had issues with Gearbest, but not me. All good. Look hard enough and you'll find people who have had issues with even the best companies and who will exclaim to anyone who'll listen that "Amazon are a scam company and no one should buy from them ever!" etc.

As a previous commenter stated, pay with PayPal and you'll be protected in case something goes wrong.
I added some info to the description, I think, which has very conveniently gone missing now.

Ordered one from Gearbest 3 months ago, never turned up. Emailed them and was told they were OOS and if I wanna buy something else as a replacement. Emailed them with a link to Rasp Pi advertised on their website as being in stock. Got no where after 2 months, was told stock mentioned on website is for "reference only" whateverTF that means... Gave up after 2 months and got myself a refund.

Gearbest are going downhill...
Gearbest deal ... cold

Just pay a little extra and get from a UK supplier at least you know it will turn up!
For info. - Pi arrived yesterday - no import duty payable etc...
Not checked it's working yet but looks okay
Less than 2 weeks for delivery is pretty good
In an effort to get gearbest to sort issues some info for everyone.
I have bought lots of stuff from them and generally good, but when it goes wrong its a mountain to climb.

However recent android box went wrong. First remote then box. Gearbest customer service woes started.
Offered a couple of quid refund and no joy, or even understanding of English through gearbest ticket system, next to useless.
Escalated to paypal, eventually full offer of refund.
Eventually through paypal offered a UK return address for info (gearbest ticket system contradicted what they were saying through paypal)

Weiwen Luo
Address:
Woodgate Business Park,
Clapgate Lane,
Bartley Green

Birmingham
United Kingdom
Phone: 07780841791

They then repeatedly refused delivery from courier. One could interpret this as a device to 'pretend' to offer refund then refuse to accept the returned goods. No goods return=no refund to pay.
Only when I refused final paltry offer from through paypal, (after they had previously offered full refund) did the return that mysteriously had been repeatedly rejected, was now accepted, on the day Paypal ruled in my favour for full return of money.
coincidence?
doubtful.

So if everyone uses paypal for payment and escalation, keeps full records, they will compel gearbest to fully refund. If everyone does this then maybe gearbest will sort it properly.
Hope this helps.

I own one and measured it before posting to be sure. I would guesss the Amazon dimensions are (bizzarely) for the packaging/box the box the NES Mini comes in, and not the mini itself.
great case, not cheap-feeling. bought one for £16 a while ago.

built-in hub connecting the nicely-positioned USB ports is good, and leaves you with three free internal USB ports... handy if you're using a Pi 2 (for Wifi and Bluetooth adapters)... or if you want to add a more reliable Bluetooth adapter on a Pi 3, which, apparently some people like to do.

there's space and fittings for a fan in the case, and a small board to connect the fan to. (I don't know what it does, exactly - maybe just power regulation? maybe a temperature sensor to trigger the fan?) however the fan itself is not included.

the one flaw is that the Ethernet port is at the front. this is just stupid. I've seen a black version which has the Ethernet port at the back - much more sensible - and the black looks nice too. it was dearer, nearer £20.
Thank you 🖒

Not exactly "no-one" but outa my class of approximately 30 kids, maybe 1 owned a NES, the ZXSpectrum, Vic20 and C64 were the mainstay. This NES nostalgia is mainly impotrtedfrom U.S. websites.

Generally home computers were king in 80s Europe, e.g. worldwide approx 1000 games were released for the NES, 5000+ were released for the ZXSpectrum.

In the early 90s in school a random kid was known to have a NES before anybody else really did. I didn't even know him, but to my shame I started trying to be best mates with him, just so I could get to play on it. It never worked out, I never got to play his NES I'm 38 now, still never played one /cries. Weird the things you remember isn't it.



Lucky you where not living in south korea at the time as they called it the Hyundai Comboy , do you think you would of mustered up the courage to ask him if you could play with his comboy?

I saw a SNES enclosure that was a real SNES that had been chopped up (which really made my eyes water!), but I'd love a megadrive version (with hopefully better emulation than the Argos specials that are around at the moment).Wasn't there a Gameboy shell available? Ooo, I wonder if anyone has done a PC Engine one...



There are some high quality retro computer ones on Etsy, if you like things like the Amiga or Atari ST.
I have this case and it is very good quality. There are cheaper versions out there which are just shells for a Raspberry Pi, but this one actually moves the ports into better positions. The two USB at the front are a godsend to connect the controllers (with the HDMI linked up to the back). There's no particular need to get these things hooked up to the internet, so I don't mind the ethernet being in the front; it's neatly stacked away for if and when I might need it.

Be very cautious ordering from this site. BIG SCAMMERS. I'm still waiting for something I ordered over a month ago too. If you google reviews you'll see that they only get 1 stars and that's because you can't give zero. Chinese company. Had I known I would have steered clear.

of course I do, and charity starts at home.

I’m a Raspberry Pi certified educator, although I know very little about the system if I’m honest. That said, I’ve independently build simple circuits, spy cameras, internet radios, google AI assistant boxes and two remote control ‘cars’. The raspberry pi is an incredible piece of kit that can help just about anyone achieve some incredible projects. You just need to put some determination and effort into it, like many things.

Awesome! I have one running a chat server and one streaming music. I have another set to automatically back up my data at my dad's house over the Internet.

Well the intent of these I believe was to get kids - and possibly adults - …Well the intent of these I believe was to get kids - and possibly adults - into coding, and away from the mindset that IT = MSOffice. The UK has today completely lost its leadership in STEM subjects and I look back fondly on the 80s when most kids would grow up wanting a BBC Micro, or a Commodore Vic20. or an ZX81 just to learn coding on. Today, kids get their first mobile at 8 and become masters of SnapChat, WhatsApp and Facebook and consider themselves fully IT literate if they're able to cobble together a few slides on PowerPoint. I work with a couple of friends in North London to run a coding club at a local school, it took a lot of hard work to get kids in but now we have about 15 regulars working on simple Python and Scratch projects, using amongst other things, Raspberry PI's. We have a couple of Arduinos as well which are really useful for teaching the older kids how to solder, use shields to improve functionality etc. The progress these kids make in a matter of months is staggering, BUT it is clear that those who attend do have parents who push them along. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to say this, but 80% of the kids who attend are of Indian or Chinese origin. All the kids have their own Pis - some have Zeros as well - and are genuinely keen to learn basic to intermediate coding. There are lots of free resources for the Rasp PI, for instance Mag Pi maintain their back issues at this link for free download: https://www.raspberrypi.org/magpi-issues/. We also use a lot of YouTube resource, e.g. EEVBlog for intermediate electronics, a couple of really good dedicated Python and Scratch channels.Its a crying shame isn't it - for today's kids, knowledge is essentially free and the technology needed to learn is dirt cheap, however the will to learn has almost disappeared.


Nonsense. Absolute rose tinted trash.

I.received no instructions. However some of the parts come with model numbers that you can Google to get the pin data. Also some of the pins are labeled. I didn't find any parts that had me worried. I think you should be ok.. or post a picture here and we will see if we can help.
Well, my sensors finally turned up.

Has anyone found any instructions or data sheets for these ?

Not sure how to use them without any further information
FYI, I ordered this on November 12th.. and it turned up today. So the wait might be a while..

Nothing here either, and like you I ordered on the 2nd.

Personally I don't order from Chinese sites without the expectation of a crazy long wait, as in my experience it's rare that something something doesn't turn up at all. I do notice that eBay sellers are less likely to use the more glacial postal methods though, if it's something I need within a month.
