Any B3's for sale in Europe?

Post by stasheck » 22 Mar 2018, 08:25

Hi, is there anyone who wants to part with his (her) B3?

For US-based guys, here's a pretty good deal: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Excito-B3-Mini ... Sw-4pZz9DF

Unfortunately, while unit price is 10$, shipping to Poland is over 30$ :/

~35 euros doesn't sound that bad to me and given the base price customs should leave it alone as well. Also, I just checked what postage would cost me for Poland and that rates at 18.50 euros and I wouldn't want to sell my spare unit for a price that this would make it worth while to you.

I'm actually tempted by that eBay offer, particularly as it appears to be WiFi versions.

Perhaps you're right, 50 $ for 2 B3s is not bad :)

I still have two B3s lying around here (Germany), the board of one of them might be broken though.
If someone is interested, I'll check how functional they are.

I believe I payed about £400 or $480 for my first B3 when they were first launched. But it was including a 500GB WD Green and no WiFi.

I've got one Wifi and one LAN version case and boards.
I named the boards beta and gamma.

Beta and Gamma both boot a disk with a Debian wheezy Kernel 2.6.39.4-11 #1 Tue Apr 3 21:45:12 FET 2012 armv5tel GNU/Linux, I think it's an old version of Mouette's debian image.
They both give the same string about the bootloader (U-Boot 2013.01.01-b3-rodeus-gab59ad7 (Apr 21 2017 - 16:32:01) ), but the LED behaviour is different.
Beta lights only purple to blue, while Gamma goes white-purple-blue, which is the behaviour for the newer Rodeus U-Boot I flashed.
Beta either has an older U-Boot, or it's the broken green LED (LED goes off when I force green mode).
I don't know whether they both will boot a newer image.

I have the HDD mounting braces and screws for both of them and one set of sticky thermal pads for the HDD. Also two 12V PSU with a Type C Europlug and one set of Wifi antennae for the wifi case.
One case has some thick shock-absorber feet on it to deal with vibration noise.

DHL Shipping in the EU will be either 9 Euro without tracking or 14 Euro WITH tracking.
