Giveaway Week – Libre Computer ROC-RK3328-CC Board

What will be the prize on the fourth day of this year’s giveaway week? Libre Computer ROC-RK3328-CC, a development board based on Rockchip RK3328 processor and mostly following Raspberry Pi 3 form factor.

When I reviewed the board with Debian 9 last summer, I was mostly reminded how important fast storage and proper power supply were important. I had some kernel panic when using slow storage (micro SD card), but when I switch to the eMMC flash stability improved a lot. I also had some troubles with my USB 3.0 hard drive, but switching from a 5V/2A power supply to a 5V/2.5A power adapter solved most of my problems. Once I had “solved” those two issues the board worked fairly well, and Libre Computer always aims for mainline Linux support on their board, so that’s an advantage to take into consideration.

The kit offered includes the board and heatsink, so you’ll need to get your own micro SD card or eMMC flash module, power supply, and other accessories.

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. If comments are open, the contest is still going on.
  • 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
    • $7 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 14th 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 everyone!

  1. Cool! I really appreciated charbax’s interview with one of the libre computer guys. They seem to have a good vision but they could stand to participate in the community more from a strategic perspective. Full credit for XeHue’s involvement of course.

  2. Have yet to try out a rockchip based sbc, would be intrigued to compare with other boards.

  3. I won one at Kernel Recipes and it’s a really nice little board with decent performance, good I/O (GigE, USB3), low heat. I find it a bit better than Odroid-C2 despite the lower frequency, probably due to USB3. It could make a nice small USB3 NAS. I haven’t tried any enclosure for it but it seems to me it can fit into a Raspi one. BTW, exclude me from the lottery as I don’t need another one, and good luck to the winner!

  4. If you no longer have any use for the board I’m sure I could find a use for it 🙂

  5. I am assuming how to tell What might be the life span of such board in long run compared to a raspberry pi.
