  2. Nifty, of the 16$ half is the RAM probably vs everything else for the rest. H616 can address 4GB.
    Fun fact RAM prices are down a bit, due to USA vs Huawei.

  3. The photo didn’t show 3x USB ports, so I went to the Amazon link. It would be good to point out that two of the USB ports are only available on the 13 pin header. (quote: USB 2.0 Ports:3*USB 2.0 HOST(Two of them are via 13pin interface board)

  4. I had to double check, but that’s definitely an upgrade over the “Orange Pi Zero Plus 2”.

    I had/have the original. The wifi on it was absolutely terrible, but the combination of built in wired ethernet, a spare usb port, and the ability to run as a usb gadget was pretty great. Still is tempting at just $16.
