Although I just bought a Odroid N2+ because of all of the recommendations from the forum, and so far I like it very much, I am looking for an alternative and I found this:
Which is also sold here:
As far as I see, it is like a N2 but much cheaper at 90 euros, including charger and remote.
(here in Germany the N2+ costs 100 euros + 10 euros the power cable (?!?!?) + 30 euros the remote + 30 euros de emmc module, + 15 WIFI dongle(!??!?!?!), so 150 euros, which is the cost of an Nvidia Shield).
So this looks really interesting. Anybody tried it? Thanks!
You compare a Box with a SBC…, not comparable in my opinion.
According post #10 here, it should be possible to run CE. Checkout on your own. Due to bad experinece with X96 boxes, don’t expect much support for these china clones here…
I will contact the seller.
First, you can run different operating systems on a SBC (12 on N2), and a box works as expected only on one → factory pre-installed.
Second, you cannot brick a SBC whatever OS/experiment you throw in it
Third, many other things I’d rather not go into…
The different OS is not a limitation of the box, if I can run CoreELEC, which is Linux, I can probably run others. But this is only relevant if that is your use case. I never run anything that is not CoreELEC.
About the non bricking, that could be and advantage, but I never bricked one device.
You can´t compare any SBC with some of the cheap & crap boxes made in china.
Locked bootloader, unsupported wifi & bluetooth chips etc. etc.
Hardkernel C4 or N2 are well supported devices, working like a charm.
I got two N2 devices, working as my daily driver.
Running like VW Beetle …
