I don't follow Raspberry Pi prices nor own a time machine so I can't say if this is a hot, warn or whatever deal but at 108$ shipped I bought 2 for the kids to horse around with during spring break.

I think with 34$ off coupon it's a good all in clusive price. [plus, no tax applied when checking out]

Thanked. The fan that comes with the case is loud like others have posted but don't let that deter you from the overall bundle value.

I would avoid getting a fan and heatsinks.

Just get the FLIRC case.

I agree. I have an non-fan Armor case and it handles even the biggest loads I can put on the Pi.

All Pi 4's have built-in WiFi.

I bought this bundle for I guess the same price around Oct/Nov last year. It was my first time using pi. Although this is a decent bundle, I would think buying barebone pi4 and Argon One case is a much better value.
The fan on this case got very loud within weeks. I eventually ended getting an Argon One case, the m2 version. Which is bit pricey, but the ssd is now enclosed inside. Plus standard HDMI ports is a win.

Change the pin configuration on that fan connection and you get yourself a okay fan :)

Recommend AdGuard Home instead of pihole. Better and more polished experience! And yes, this can run both pihole and AdGuard Home...

I just started using pihole and it doesn't block youtube ads. Am I doing something wrong?

Also, this pi 4 seems like overkill for pihole. I am running it on a less expensive older PI (pi b+) and it seems to work fine.

pihole works on a pi zero which is $10 or $35 for a fill kit.

Are there any good kodi builds for rpi4 yet?

I'm coming a 10 year old media player that could do blu-ray 3D (Realtek 1186) . Remember that, kids? XD

I'm looking for the following features:
- 1.5 and 2x fast forward with pitch corrected audio
- when stopping FF sound and video should start immediately (well at least as fast as the 10 year old media player!)
- good ff/rw performance otherwise (not sure but I think this might mean needing to attach the drive directly to the player rather than over network?)
- ability to adjust OSD to display only what I want when I want (skin?)
- non-convoluted and easily controllable by a universal remote. CEC works but....

Can anyone suggest a kodi build/skin/etc that meets these requirements?

If this is asking too much is there a standalone media player that has all these? With the added requirement of supporting blu-ray 3D? I know Vero 4k+ supports has this but not sure about the other features.


I've tried kodi but so far been really disappointed at what I assumed were old school basic features... I'm not clear if this is just rpi4 kodi being in an incomplete state or just limitations of kodi itself. Thanks!

The Pi is too expensive now. For a few dollars more, you can get a refurb Celeron based NUC that is a lot more powerful

Can you suggest one? I'm looking for a box to run latest Kodi that can also decode HEVC/x265 videos. Thank you.

Not as power efficient though.
