Re: Power Supply - 4 x 5v

This baby says it offers a 2 amp output, but with it being off eBay I'm always wary :(

Re: Power Supply - 4 x 5v

Hi, I did some more research then some more, then some more then found this: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150752786119&ssPageName=ADME:L:OC:GB:3160 looks like it will provide 4 x 5v connectors so I have got one to try, this could be good idea for people that require that lit...

Re: Power Supply - 4 x 5v

Did you try that power supply from eBay for £7 ? I've finally realised all my pi problems with peripherals have been because of the power and despite buying a 1amp charger, it seems my 2 usb devices (A laser mouse and wi-fi) are simply drawing too much. Individually, they perform fine, but both plug...

Re: SD Card Benchmarks

Bit of an update, I noticed a slight performance increase using the Sandisk over the Lexar which had much better read speeds than the Sandisk, I just wonder if those increased write speeds make a difference. Unfortunately, none of them excel across the board. The Sandisk seems kind of poor across th...

Re: RaspBMC Question

Hello,

I tried the 3COM 3CRUSB10075 on DarkELEC which is an OpenELEC fork that is heavily optimized towards the pi and nothing shows when I plug it in. It lights up and all that but nowhere does it say connect or whatever, either I'm missing it, or it's unsupported.

Re: Printable case based on an actual Pi

excellent job on the case. I don't have a cutter, so I just used a pair of scissors and a wooden ruler. Fits very snugly around the pi and went together beautifully with cheap pritt stick. Opted against using super glue although if I make another I might use that next time because pritt stick can so...

Re: SD Card Benchmarks

Mega disappointed with all my sd cards pretty much, especially my Sandisk, a real disappointing buy that was. I know they are class 4, but I expected a better random 4kb write speed than any of them have really offered. Unfortunately, the best I have I had purchased as a MicroSD for my mobile phone,...
