Giveaway Week – NanoPi NEO NAS Kit with NEO 2 Board

Orange Pi Development Boards

Time has come to organize another giveaway week. I used to mainly give away TV boxes, but due to recent regulations that will not be possible anymore, and instead this giveaway week will include Linux and IoT development boards, and other accessories. I’ll start with NanoPi NEO NAS Kit v1.2.

NanoPi NEO NAS Kit v1.2 is a low cost kit NanoPi NEO or NEO 2 board that takes a 2.5″ hard drive. I’ve tested it with NanoPi NEO 2 board and OpenMediaVault, and found to perform optimally for this type of device (USB 2.0 to SATA), with SAMBA reads & writes achieving 40 MB/s.

Read and Write Speeds in MB/s

The hardware given away includes the NAS Kit v1.2 and a NanoPi NEO 2 board. You’ll just need to add a micro SD card with the OMV image, a hard drive, and a 12V/2A (or greater) power supply.

To enter the draw simply leave a comment below. Other rules are as follows:

  • Only one entry per contest. I will filter out entries with the same IP and/or email address.
  • Contests are open for 48 hours starting at 10am (Bangkok time) every day. Comments will be closed after 48 hours.
  • Winners will be selected with random.org, and announced in the comments section of each giveaway.
  • I’ll contact the winner by email, and I’ll expect an answer within 24 hours, or I’ll pick another winner.
  • Shipping
    • $14 for registered airmail small packet for oversea shipping payable via Paypal within 48 hours once the contest (for a given product) is complete.
    • If Paypal is not available in your country, you can still play, and I’ll cover the cost of sending the parcel by Sea and Land (SAL) without registration if you win.
  • I’ll post all 7 prizes at the same time, around the 8th of November
  • I’ll make sure we have 7 different winners, so if you have already won a device during this giveaway week, I’ll draw another person.

Good luck!

If you don’t end up winning, but are still interested in the solution, you can purchase the kit with NanoPi NEO 2 for $28.98 plus shipping on FriendlyARM website.

Seems to be a good moment to give you some feedback 🙂

Thank you for doing this, I have not looked back once since I added this site to my RSS reader. I concur with the above commenter that the news about cheap esp32 or similar boards are my favourite.

As for things to improve, or at least something I prefer to see more about is reviews or tests. The one thing I always wonder about for these cheap boards is documentation / support.

Keep up the good work!

Ohoh I’m really interested in this kit, my last DIY Nas machine is currently at my parents home because I didn’t want to take away from them the convenience of it, especially because of DLNA

I’ll take this oppportunity to thank you for all the valuable, unique and reliable content here! Really hard to find all three in one place these days. I have to switch to Tor proxy every day just to read this website. Don’t know why it is blocked in Kazakhstan, maybe it was cohosted with some nasty content, maybe just an error.
