    Does a BB have an "odometer" of any type? Something in it's memory that shows "time powered on"? Some sort of software hack that can read anything like that? It's a great deal new or used, and I will be testing mine thoroughly. But if he's listing them as NEW on eBay and not putting in the description anything in the description that they were used in any way, then that is fraudulently selling a new item or even a "New (Other)" item. Apparently a normal "new in box" comes with the USB cable, these do not. Again, I got it for 1/3 the price of most new units listed out there. I'm a deal finder and I can make anything work as long as it wasn't already damaged or DOA. I don't mind the fact that they might have been used, but I'm one for full disclosure.

    Got my 2 yesterday also. Both up and running with no issues on latest FPP. Now to catch up to Ken@wiredwatts to get an octoscroller and a couple more P10's...may try a couple P5's this time just for giggles. :-)

    No. Software like FPP has an “uptime” counter that is reset with every power cycle, but thats it. In most cases, if the processor doesn’t blow shortly after it’s powered on, it will likely won’t fail for a very long time.
