Same SD with the same image reset to default clocking, same 2.5A power supply, Same powered USB SDR receiver, etc... 72 hours straight on the replacement hardware with no issues on stock clocking.

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 B+ lockups

Surprised there are differences- they are all made in the same factory on the same production line so all components should be electrically the same. There might be colour difference - when you make >200k boards sometimes components colour change between batches. The display and camera connectors w...

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 B+ lockups

Hmmm. Didn't make it 24 hours. Hung again tonight even with lower clocking. Definitely more stable, but still not reliable.

Any settings I should try before swapping it out at my local store where I purchased it?

Re: On the Pi itself, SD benchmarks.

If you care enough about the speed to spend this much time testing, you should really do a USB install using a smaller SD card to start the boot process. The Sandisk Cruiser Fit (USB 2) I tested had a read above 20. This one: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00LLEODCK/ref=twister_B00MQL3OHW?_encoding=UTF8...

Re: Class 4 microSDHC Card - Which OS?

Lower class cards don't usually perform better than higher ones, they just cost less. Running an OS is pretty much all about random piecemeal reads, whereas class is ALL about sustained sequential write speed (which is crucial if you're going to put it in a Video Camara). My class 4 Sandisks Will r...

Re: Class 4 microSDHC Card - Which OS?

In general, unless you have a real-time application where you're shifting gigabytes of data the class of the SDCard doesn't matter a hoot. If you enable the new dtoverlay=sdhost in /boot/config.txt it matters even less than a hoot. If you don't care about response time, the performance of a card ma...

Re: Class 4 microSDHC Card - Which OS?

SD Class is nothing more than the minimum sequential write speed for the card and tells you nothing about the technology behind the card. A quality class 10 card will outperform a cheap card any day. This "myth" that class 4 or 6 cards are better is based on a lot of misconceptions. Pluggy, If you c...

Re: SDHC UHS-I

I use UHS-1 in all of my Pis. I have 2 B+ and 2 Pi2s. You will not get the UHS-1 rated speeds but rather the Class 10 speed if the card is rated Class 10 and UHS-1. XC can work but I have never tested > 64GB.

Cheers!

Re: Micro SD Reccommendation

The "class" of a card is the minimum sequential write speed and there is nothing special about class 4 and 6 cards other than they are slower than the newer cards. The important bit here is "sequential write speed" because the Pi doesn't do that much sequential writing, except when you are saving a...

Re: Micro SD Reccommendation

Well, actually there is something about class 4 and class 6. They're not made for continous write, but usually give the most read write speed because that's how they are made. They're cheap as well. And you have benchmark results to back this up? Speed class is a Sequential write minimum rating and...

Why not have speed AND reliability? Take the time and spend the money to get a quality name brand SD card and/or hard drive. If you just pick up the cheapest thing or the first thing you find, you are probably not going to have either and are more likely to have problems. Unfortunately looking at a ...
