 Installation Video:

The X828 is a stackable 2.5" SATA HDD expansion board focused on providing a bigger storage solution for your Raspberry Pi B/2B/3B/3B+/4B. The board is a great way to give a desktop look, as you can connect multiple external hard drivers without having them "hanging" from the USB ports of your SBC.

Knowing that our users might need more USB entrances, we added to extra USB 3.1 Gen1 ports to the X828, so the user can connect keyboards, USB sticks or even other external HDDs.

If you are looking for building a Media Center or even a Network-attached storage (NAS), the X828 will be a good choice for you. You will be able to separate one hard disk only for operating system and the rest for media, games...etc.

  • Ideal storage solution for Raspberry Pi - Stackable 2.5" SATA HDD/SSD Shield
  • Supports one or multiple 2.5 SATA HDDs/SSDs working at the same time(depending on the number of X828 boards you stack)

  • Supports operating system installation and booting from your HDD/SSD

As the X828 metal case can only support Raspberry Pi 4+2 PCS X828 2.5" SATA shield + X735 Power Management Board, but X828 is stackable, we can not meet all customer demand, so we will not produce any X828 case after it sold out.

FAQ

What to do if you find the SSD or HDD is not recognize?

A:
1. Please test and make sure your Raspberry Pi4 USB3 port is good one. (We get the feedback that Pi 4 USB3 port is easy to broken, finally the customer find it is the Pi 4 USB3 port problem.)

2. Please confirm that you use the SSD with right interface which match with the socket of your expansion shield. (Not recommend to use SAMSUNG SSD, as there will be big EMC interference.)
Please use right interface M.2 SATA SSD (KEY-B) to X862, use M.2 NVME SSD (KEY-M) to X872. (We found that some buyer use M.2 sata SSD to X872, it's wrong!!!)

3. If use WiFi, please try to close WIFI to test.

4. Please try provide extra power to X862/X872/X857 when SSD not recognized.

5. Please change to another SSD to test if you have one

6. Please use a USB cable to test the expansion shield on the computer to check if the SSD is recognized.


If still any issue, please email us at support@geekworm.com and provide the follow information:

1. Your order number.
2. The SSD model you use.
3. Photos about all the hardware connection.
4. Run the command " lsusb" and show us the result.
