Upgrade from Orange pi PC?

Recommended Posts

I have an orange pi PC that I use as a simple NAS (NFS, smb, iscsi) and for openVPN occasionally but want something new with GbE.

 

What is the best upgrade that will give me 2 or more usb ports, GbE and a faster processor? With decent software support (:P)? I don't need HDMI or wifi but it would be a plus

512MB-1GB RAM

 

opi zero plus?

opi PC 2?

 

Around $20 shipped ideally

Not for $20 shipped, but with the -for me - cheap NAS case the NanoPi Neo2 LTS is a option.

The Neo2 is available with 512MB or 1GB of Ram and works fine inside the NAS-Case
(I got 2 of these combinations running over a year).

 

armbian-support for the Neo2 (H5-CPU) is fine. HDMI isnt included, but with the NAS-case he has 2 USB 2.0-Ports, GBE,
a power-switch AND a proper Power-connector for a normal 12V power-supply :)

OPi PC 2 is around 23€ including ship cost to my country. But for my is a huge upgrade from OPi PC Gigabit and cpu extensions made the difference.

That looks neat and essentially gives me 3 USB ports as I would be using USB-SATA adapter anyway but it's $55 USD including shipping to the UK
