Questions about using SATA Drive with Banana Pro + Misc Question

Hi, I am curious regarding using a SATA Drive with the Banana Pro. I have heard from a few friends with Banana Pi's that there is a stability issue, making things unstable because board has to power SATA Drive and itself.

I plan to use the Banana Pro as a home seedbox, so the device and drive would be on 24/7.

I am curious if that issue is present with the Banana Pro, due to the Banana Pro also powering the 2.5" Sata Drive through the board.

I am also curious if, by powering the drive through the board itself, that might reduce the lifespan of the board somehow, or put extra stress on the board, versus just using a USB External Drive? As well, would using a 7200RPM drive versus a 5400RPM drive somehow put more stress on the board?

Also, slightly off topic, is support for Banana Pro really dead, dropped by LeMaker? Are there still people working on the distros, or am I on my own with other forum members?

Thank you.

The user manual says the sata power connector onboard is only for ssd's and is unreliable/risky for other drives.

So it would make sense to power the hdd externally.

From the quick start guide, it says:

"And please aware that only 2.5 inch SATA hard drive can use the SATA power on board"

also states that HDD or SSD can be used. So, even though HDD can be used, best to power drive externally? That is a let down.

I have used a 7200 RPM 2.5" hard drive with a 5V 2A power supply for the Banana Pi using the SATA port and have never had issues.

Thanks for your response.

This is the HDD I will be getting, best value I could find, speed is not a concern for me.
Will be attached to BPro running off 5V/3A, which will do approx. 15W total output.

BPro will draw apparently between 0.5-3W total, HDD max 2W I think, so no worries.

Thanks again for responses!

You have to take care of
  • the stability of your powersupply
  • the quality of your USB cable
  • the power required by your HD when spin-up.

I've connected a "green" Sata disk and I haven't any issue : it is running for more than 1y now and is powering my 1wire network as well.
