ODROID-GO Advance Black Edition is selling for $29.50 (Promo)

Hardkernel is having a “Black Friday” sale for the ODROID-Go Advance Black Edition portable game console that is now selling for $29.50, or exactly half of the normal price ($59.00), with either the transparent or black enclosure.

ODROID GO-Advance Black Edition KitThe game console is sold as a kit which adds to the fun. Once you’ve assembled the device, and flash the Ubuntu 18.04 image, you’ll be able to play a wide variety of games through emulators for Atari, GameBoy, MegaDrive, NES, PCEngine, Sega CD, PlayStation Portable (PSP), and many more.

Sometimes heavily discounted hardware means a new version is coming out, but we’ll have to see as the ODROID Go Super with a 5-inch display is still available for the same $80 price tag.

Is it possible to use it as a portable ssh console (with some external keyboard)?

They wouldn’t have put a 10 pin expansion header if it wasn’t meant for that sort of stuff.

frostwork is right – when you put in your address and clear the “ship to different address” check box, the shipping gets recalculated. Unfortunately to New Zealand it’s still $24.31 shipping. I’ll pass.

@Abbadon: and don’t forget the VAT and handling costs you will be charged. Probably another $10-15

Very good offer but for Bulgaria the shipping is another $18 which makes it almost $50. I will probably also have to pay VAT on top so not interestered.
I’ve often had this issue with Hardkernel. I like their products but expensive shipping makes me buy something on Ali instead.

Tempting, but as other commenters have noted, shipping almost doubles the price.
As an emulation & retro-gaming handheld, this is inferior to an old 3DS, PSP, or PSVita, which can each play games natively that emulation on lower-end ARM SoCs still struggles with, and emulate older systems. For running old PC games with box86, 480×360 is too low a resolution; you’d want at least 640×400 or 640×480 for that.

A few days ago I was looking into buying this for a present for around $105. From Sweden because it is in EU already (and probably cheaper than buy it from Korea + shipping +VAT). Now I know better.
Is Odroid Go Super worth $105 (already in EU)?

So I ordered two Odroid Go Advance for $29,50 x 2 + $38 shipping to Sweden…
Some time later I got the customs fees.
$16 customs
$28 VAT (calculated on item + shipping + customs)
$13 administration fee

In total I paid about $155 for two Odroid Go Advance delivered.
Probably wouldn’t do it again.
