Build your own media server using Raspberry Pi 4 and an external SSD. Stream live TV and movies with Plex using the Chromium web browser, or install any other network drive / streaming software to run on this all-in-one lunchbox sized Pi-based server

SSD Media Server

Use an SSD to store all of your media and get blazing fast read and write speeds using a SATA to USB 3.0 cable.

Learn how to create a bootable USB drive for your Raspberry Pi.

3D Printed Case

Build a PC tower inspired 3D printed case. Secure the Pi and extra accessories such as a 1.9in TFT display, 5V fan, 2x buttons and a power switch with an LED.

Side panels attach to the frame making this a modular design for easy access. The case features a handle with a print-in-place hinge for transport.

TFT Display

Use the 1.9in color TFT screen to display your media servers IP address, CPU temperature or memory/disk usage using CircuitPython libraries for Raspberry Pi OS.

Also play looping GIF images on the display and cycle through them using the built-in buttons.

Extra Features

Customize the side panels to add more features and accessories.

A 5V fan can be mounted to one side of the panels to keep the Raspberry Pi nice and cool.

A 16mm metal pushbutton with built-in LED is mounted to the back side of the case, right above the microSD card slot.

SSD Attachment

Secure the 2.5in SSD with standard mounting holes to the 3D printed bracket.

Attach the SSD bracket to the side panel for a secure and reliable external drive.
