Giveaway Week – Khadas Vim Pro Development Board

For the final day of this giveaway week, I’ll send Khadas Vim Pro development board to a new home. The board is powered by an Amlogic S905X processor coupled with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage, features 10/100M Ethernet and 802.11ac WiFi, and support 4K video playback and output via its HDMI 2.0a port.

The board supports various operating systems such as Android, LibreELEC, dual boot Android/Ubuntu, etc.. and I wrote a Ubuntu review / getting started guide for the board in February. At the time, the image was still “raw” with many steps to perform by the users, and part of the documentation needing to be worked on. But the company (Szwesion) and members of the community are usually active in resolving user issues on the forums.

I’ll give away the kit I’ve received with the board in an acrylic case, a USB to USB type C cable for power, a HDMI cable, and an IR remote control.

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, 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
    • $11 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 10 prizes at the same time, around the 8th of November
  • I’ll make sure we have 10 different winners, so if you have already won a device during this giveaway week, I’ll draw another person.

Khadas Vim Pro is sold on GearBest for $57.99 shipped. If you want something more powerful or feature-rich, Khadas Vim2 board is another option with Amlogic S912, GbE, better 802.11ac WiFi, and more.

  1. btw, mainline linux is *almost* entirely working on this board

    However, progress has slowed down to a crawl since the release of the Khadas Vim2. They really don’t have the manpower to support 2 platforms (they were struggling with just one platform as-is). I’ll poke them on the forums and see if they can finish things.

  2. I’ve been eyeing this sbc for a while now but couldn’t find a good distributor. Would obviously be nice to win it here, but apart from that, where do people buy this from, Gearbest excluded? I’ve had less than good experience with Gearbest.

  3. I’d love one of these to replace my ageing r-pi 2 general hack-about board. Thanks.

  4. I’ve raspberry pi2 SBC, I need more SBC to experiment as media player for my 4k TV.
    Count me in .
    I need one khadas vim2 board.

  5. I have never seen this many comments on a CNX story … That being said, I want me one of these

  6. 329 entries, easily the most popular item of this giveaway week.
    Random selection in progress… and #165 is the winner!
    Congratulations Jan!

    No answer within 24 hours, so I need to pick another winner.
    Mr. Random says #59. Congratulations gleveque!
