Canakit Raspberry Pi 4
CanaKit Raspberry Pi 4 4GB Starter PRO Kit - 4GB RAM
Canakit Raspberry Pi 4 is very nice product. I was looking for a secure bulletproof, reliable, inexpensive way to setup my own home VPN server. The OS of choice had to be Linux and I didnt want to have a bulky, noisy, collecting dust computer running all day.
Here comes the mighty Raspberry PI, this starter Kit except for the mouse and keyboard has everything you need to setup your Raspberry PI. although it works extremely well I dont use the desktop feature of the Raspberry PI, I disable it and doing so it saved me about 500 megs of ram. The only cable going to my Raspberry PI is the power cable.
To connect to my PI I “ssh” into it, if you’re a serious Linux enthusiast, you provably wont need to have a monitor attached to it. The fan that comes with the PI hardly makes any sound you cant even hear it’s running. Also it’s possible using python to control when the CPU fan turns on, you can enable it to run only when the CPU heat it’s above, lets say > 80 °F.
I didnt install the default NOOBS OS instead I downloaded DietPi v6.25.3 I like DietPi because it has many packages you can download and it’s very customizable to use. See screenshots attached, good job CanaKit Raspberry Pi folks.Promised Review by Alfredo R.
