Raspberry Pi 5 with 120 GB SSD


This high end kit includes everything you need to get maximum performance out of your Raspberry Pi 5. An SSD instead of an SD-card increases drastically speed, reliability and storage capacity of your Pi.

No hassle, the set comes with the OS on the SSD preinstalled and is already fully assembled.

Start right away by choosing for an SSD instead of a micro-SD card for your Raspberry Pi 5 hardware.

This kit combines an SSD (2.5-inch SSD) with a Raspberry Pi in a very elegant way. We install the board’s firmware to boot from the USB-ports if an SSD is available. Thanks to this, there is no need for a micro SD card any more (but it remains possible).

Operating System

We preinstall the operating system on your SSD. Choose among 2 possible operating systems to perfectly match your needs :

  • Raspberry Pi OS (64-bit), the official desktop Raspberry Pi Operating System. This OS is recommended for users getting started with the Raspberry Pi. It comes with plenty of useful applications : Chromium browser, Games, Programming tools and much more.
  • Home Assistant (64-bit), an open source and popular home automation operating system. Perfect to run on your Raspberry Pi.
  • Ubuntu Desktop (latest release – 64-bit), an open source desktop operating system, widely used around the world, with all the essential applications for home, school, and work.
  • blank, install yourself the OS of your choice.

Beside uploading the software, we assemble all the hardware. All you have to do is to connect the SSD and the peripherals to your Raspberry Pi. And you are ready to go…


Having the OS installed on an SSD instead of the micro SD card has 3 main benefits :

    • Firstly, it will increase the speed of your Pi. Comparing with a standard class 10 micro-SD card, the difference is amazing : 5x faster or even more. Even the fastest micro-SD card is much slower than the SSD.
    • Secondly, the reliability of your setup will improve. Indeed, micro-SD cards are originally made to store pictures, music and video. Using them for the Operating System of your computer is not ideal. The frequent read and write operations makes the micro-SD card the weakest element of your Pi. In many cases this could mean a complete loss of all your work. In contrary, SSD are used in millions of PC or laptops and have proven to be very reliable.
    • Last but not least, the storage capacity of an SSD is in general much higher than the capacity of a micro-SD card. With this starter kit you get an 120GB SSD. A starter kit with micro-SD card offers in general only 8, 16 or 32GB.

In conclusion, taking into account the power and features of the Raspberry Pi 5 in combination with the SSD, this small computer can be compared with an entry-level desktop PC. On top of the features of a standard desktop PC, the Raspberry Pi offers much more possibilities. The applications for this mini computer are countless, the only limit is your imagination: desktop PC, home automation, media and entertainment center, gaming console, web server, …

Remarks :

  • We 3D-print our self-developed cases in our own lab. To print the cases, we use PLA, an eco-friendly raw material.
  • We developed this setup to avoid the use of a micro-SD-card. However, you can still use a micro-SD-card, but you’ll need to open the enclosure to change the card.
