Review: ODROID-C4 Customer Feedback

We love hearing from our customers and what they're doing with the technology they've received through us. Here are a few new reviews on the ODROID-C4:


VPN Server

I run this little guy as an OpenVPN server. Armbian nightly for the operating system.
I ran a script to do the configuration, which worked perfectly, and then left the C4 on my desk. I do wish I got a case... but it works great out in the open.
I used (overkill) a 32 GB emmc card. This helped with the general speediness of the device. I want to add more to it, but I kind of like it being my network gateway.
With all the crypto extensions included, speeds are generally very good, much better than what I was getting on the Pi 4.
I'm glad I went with a midrange device, rather than another N2 (I have one for coreelec). I'm happy with my decision, and strongly suggest any linux users to give it a shot.
I can't speak for using it as a media player, but I have a strong feeling that it would tackle video/audio files very well.


4 STARS

Greetings,
This has worked out very well. I had to use this Armbian OS because could not get SSH to work on BIONIC server for some reason: [Armbian_20.05.2_Odroidc4_stretch_current_5.6.15.img].

I used an Odroid BLUE dot eMMC module and installed TiddlyServer on a mounted /mnt 128GB micro SD card using one of the USB 3.0 ports and NODEjs: [https://github.com/Arlen22/TiddlyServer].

Of my existing 6 single board computer models, this one clearly is one of the fastest.
