Raspberry Pi NAS Media Server Giveaway Feb 2016

The last HTPC Guides giveaway was a Banana Pi from Lemaker which Hennie won and an mk808b Plus which Sergej won. This time around the Media Server Giveaway is a Raspberry Pi 2 for the lucky winner.

The winner will receive the Raspberry Pi 2, a case, SD card with Minibian Jessie and the HTPC Guides Media Server Installer and a 5V 2A power adapter. You will have everything you need to get started with setting up a powerful, low electricity footprint home media server. See these benchmarks for the kind of speeds you can expect from a Raspberry Pi 2 NAS.

To gain an entry you must be on the mailing list and make sure emails don’t end up in your spam folder.

In the Christmas Banana Pi giveaway the first 5 winners were passed over because they were not on the mailing list or didn’t respond to emails after 1 week!

Additional entries in the raffle can be gained from sharing the promotion.

I will ship the kit anywhere in the world, the furthest a giveaway has traveled so far is to South Africa, you – the winner – do not pay for shipping!
