RE: Raspberry Pi Foundation Launches Pi 400

in STEMGeeks4 months ago

"I do wish they went with some sort of SSD instead of using SD cards. SD Cards are notoriously unreliable when abruptly shutting down the computer, and this happens frequently with a PC. You can get 120GB SSD for around $20, it should have at least been an option. The performance difference with an SSD on a Pi over SD is huge."

I am not sure what you mean, I think one could just buy a SSD extern harddisk and set the bias to boot from it, then you would avoid the SD card, am I right?


I wonder whether the keyboard has a space to mount one internally?

Bruh, no it has not... but I found the answer, its easy to connect an external SSD harddisk and the SD card is very stabile these days, so what markymark writes is not relevant these days (that SDs are instabile), shame on you @themarkymark for ignoring me and providing wrong information :)

I didn't see your question even come in on Gina.

You can use a USB 3 cable (I have a post that goes into this for the Pi 4 but should be very similar) to boot off SSD.

I really think the device should have come with SSD as desktop usage really isn't good on an SD card and they could have done a good sized SSD for only $20. Likely even fit it inside of the keyboard (ideal).

I didn't provide the wrong information, I assumed it was obvious you could use an external SSD or even use an SSD cable like the one in my post above. I was mainly referring to what they provide and how they could have done it internally for a much better product.

ok sorry for shaming you, yeah I guess it was obvious that one could use an external harddisk. I see your point, my roommate told me that SD cards are stabile these days, but yes I am also skeptical of running my computer with a SD card as "harddrive" :)...

Keep it up dude, earth is flat, research it!

SD are fairly stable, unless you pull the power then they run a higher than normal chance of corrupting. But more importantly they are slow as shit, especially random reads.

Keep it up dude, earth is flat, research it!

That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard in my life.

Thanks for your earnest response, you are brainwashed by the Illuminati, thats why you think that. Keep it up anyway :)

You can solve this really easy. Buy a $40 weather balloon, and a cheap mobile phone, send it up with the camera streaming, you will have your answer within 2 hours.

Better yet, I'll give you 1,000 Hive for a really good picture of the edge of the Earth.

and a treat for you:

not sure its the right video where it hits something (dome?).. I dont have time... things are speeding up these days for lassecash...

but this video is worth watching:

^^ 100% quality music video with flat earth proofs inside the video.

Rest assure people will wake up with decentralized video services like LBRY/ODYSEE, its only a matter of time.

I am busy promoting my tribe, but here is a standard answer for you: Let me break it to you: The moon is a COLD light. Earth is flat. Please research it.

My favorite flat earthers on youtube:

Please watch all those 3 youtubers videos on #flatearth, then you might realize the truth, that the earth is flat.
