Pimoroni Pi5 PCIe drive card

Got my Pimoroni NVME board for the Pi5 yesterday. Had to fuss around a bit. The PCIe cable is fiddly and I had an old M.2 ssd that the os wouldn’t recognize. Popped in a new 1TB Samsung M.2 and all is good. The Pi5 boots to the graphical interface in 7 sec. Buffered (not cached) disk reads showing 429MB/sec.


Wish my local shop would get some in… I’ve seen a couple on Prime but I can wait. Anytime I can avoid the MetaGooZon…
