Fully Assembled Version
The fully assembled version comes fully tested and ready to use. Just provide an SD card.
In the kit version, the SMD parts come already soldered. All you have left to solder are the header pins and the SCSI connector. These are through-hole parts, and it’s fairly easy to do if you have some soldering practice.
You may also exclude the Raspberry Pi Pico completely, in which case you’ll have to supply your own, as well as headers for it.
If you wish to replace an internal hard drive, the right-angle connector is typically what you would want. The pins are then oriented in the same way they are on a regular hard drive.
The straight connector can be used for cases when you need the cable to be perpendicular to the surface of the BlueSCSI.
You have a choice of either a traditional Raspberry Pi Pico, or a Raspberry Pi Pico W (wireless).
The wireless version is needed to take advantage of the DaynaPORT Wifi feature, currently in beta: https://tinkerdifferent.com/threads/bluescsi-v2-daynaport-wifi-beta.2857/
Note: the Desktop version of BlueSCSI is typically used internally, inside a casing that shields its contents from the outside world, including radio signals. This means that the Pico W might have a hard time communicating over Wi-Fi over medium to long distances.
The Pico will be flashed with the latest version of the firmware at the time of ordering.
You can also get a 3D-printed tray in the colour of your choice. Note that these are early 3D models. They are functional, but better models will be made available by the community in the coming month.
We ship from Belgium to all continental European countries, and all countries of the European Union. In nearly all cases, your order will be mailed as a letter, free of custom fees.
