Giveaway Week – Orange Pi R1S Kit

Day 4 of giveaway week will be another product sent directly from the manufacturer, as Shenzhen Xunlong Software agreed to send an Orange Pi R1 Plus kit for free to a randomly selected winner.

Just like the FriendlyELEC’s NanoPi R2S we’ve offered earlier this week, Orange Pi R1 Plus comes with a Rockchip RK3328 processor and dual Gigabit Ethernet, as well as 1GB RAM.  The kit also includes a plastic enclosure.

Orange Pi R1 Plus Black ABS CaseWhile I did not have the opportunity to test the board myself, James Dawson did, and found both Ethernet ports to achieve close to Gigabit Ethernet speed, with the processor delivering decent performance.  Software-size, Shenzhen Xunlong Software provides Ubuntu, Debian, OpenWrt, and even Android images on the resources page, but some people also managed to run the Armbian image for NanoPi R2S or RockPi E boards.

Orange Pi R1 Plus

To enter the draw simply leave a comment with your country and whatever else you’d like to say. If the country is missing, I’ll consider the entry void. 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 10 am (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.
  • Note that I may not be able to contact people who log in with Facebook, Twitter, or Google, so it’s better to use an email address to enter the daw.
  • Shipping will be handled by Shenzhen Xunlong Software, and I’ll forward the winner’s email to arrange shipment.
  • 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.

If you are unlucky this time around, the kit is listed on Aliexpress, albeit “no longer available”. The first time, I asked for an Orange Pi 4, but with the lack of audio codec due to the current chip shortage, we settled for Orange Pi 1 Plus. It’s been a while since we’ve announced a new Orange Pi board, but the good news is several new Orange Pi boards are being developed.

dual gig eth on rk3328 sounds fun. thinking i would get either alpine or postmarketos running on it, then use it to run zoneminder and connect to a dedicated switch for some pinecubes. to keep cameras on a separate network. that makes sense, right?

Has anyone tried these in real use? The original R1 was a neat little board, but the thing would sit there and bake itself to death at idle. I had one in a cellular fallback application, and even in the cool room with some airflow it was in (no case) the thing would overheat and lock up while doing nothing. There was even a small heatsink on the CPU.

Not sure if it was just being pushed to hard or what.
