I assume you completely missed my points. Yes for an extra £9 you can have a cheap hd mi cable, and 32gb card ... and sacrifice the quality of the caae/psu. If you are using it for retropie and not adding a powered sub hdr then 32gb isn't all that.

Yeah, I had to put it my 200gb and extend the available space. Madlittlepixel has also released a couple of trimmed images which should fit on all 128gb cards. Otherwise look through his YouTube channel ... there's a tutorial somewhere on trimming dead space from image files so they will fit.

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.

Editor Get dealGet deal

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.

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.

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.

Has anyone who ordered this actually received it yet?

£119 on special offer for a Raspberry 3 instead of v2 running much of the same software (Scratch, Minecraft, Python) but with the Fuze you get a box of leds. If they were the same price I'd think about it more but this is almost half the price. Is "Kano OS" going to be that good?

Thanks for this. I picked mine up in store today and got a 10% discount because the box was in appalling condition.

Has anyone who bought one of these received theirs yet? I had a shipping email come through yesterday but a couple of hours later I received a PayPal refund?

Suppose it's useful if you are inept with a soldering iron.


Look, it's just for those of us who think we're doing proper electronics.

I had one of these, but it broke. It was a stuffed crust


Cheesy pun

  • I have female headers - you can poke jumpers right in.
  • I'm fully open source hardware. Fork me, tweak me, share me.

Can we take a moment to delve in the suggestive vocabulary?

It's not about soldering but prototyping, these breakout boards are great …It's not about soldering but prototyping, these breakout boards are great for that.Clearly when it's all finalised you can go and do a proper soldering job.


Of course, just wanted to make clear that this board requires soldering in order to use it (unlike some other boards which don't).
