Upgrade to new hardware!

I’ve seen several people move to an Intel nuc, but felt the price / performance to be a little high.
i settled on a gigabyte 4105

8 gb crucial ddr4 mem

512 GB m.2 ssd

Total cost $261 (at the time of my purchase)

running hass (HA not hass.io) on a vanilla debian 9 install, with node-red for automation, mysql for the db and grafana for dashboards

big upgrade from my rpi3 :slight_smile:

anyway, putting the info out there in case anyone was looking to move to a nuc… here is an alternative way to go that i can recommend.

If you wanted some additional Home Assistant scripting. you could have installed the Hassbian scripts on your Debian install.

Just another option. I tested in a VM.

Hello @ghvader

I find your post and I will start to use a similar set up.
I start with the same ram modules but a 2,5 inch sata ssd also fro crucial.

Crucial MX500 500GB Sata SDD

Thank you for the idea. I wish there are more people out there sharing their HA set up to learn from each other!

still running that same hardware till this day. working great. except the adata m2 died after about a year and i replaced it with a sandisk 2.5 ssd and it’s been good ever since.
