Does Odroid XU4 only EMMC version exist?

Unread post by xXFranciscoXx » Sat Sep 21, 2019 3:58 am

Good Morning,

Browsing the next page I found a striking product that I did not even find on the HardKernel page, it is a version of Odroid XU4 at a fairly attractive price (for Europe) but that does not support micro SD and only supports EMMC. Is this really so and does it exist?

Thanks!

Most likely it's a refurbished XU4 with a known broken SD slot. Or a broken boot switch, stuck on emmc.

The price isn't that special. Pollin.de sells the XU4 including µSD-slot for €79,95:

In what I put above is included the power supply and emmc while that of Pollin does not, in addition, Pollin does not send to my country by ElectrokG regulation

I would assume that they tested it and that there are no other problems with it. And also that they provide some warranty so you can test for yourself.
If the pricd is right you can get it and put it to stability tests. The sd may break most likely due to mechanical problems and should not affect the rest of the board
