The RPi doesn't seem to have a good reliability record, so that doesn't seem
like the solution.
Thanks time-nuts, what a resource.
Very few problems with multiple RPi cards here.
Most of the problem reports I've seen have been from either:
- inadequate power supplies. Note that the better ones have a 5.25V 2A
capacity, allowing for some drop in the USB-micro-USB cable, and some people
have been running power-hungry HDs off the USB ports. Two years back the
RPi had rather limited USB power, not so on today's hardware.
- SD cards - cheap or not well mounted. The RPi 2 uses a micro-SD card with
a much more secure mounting.
