  • Build-It-Yourself-Kit comes with a pre-flashed & tested BluePill along with all the parts you need to get it up and running – Just add an SD card and a Vintage Macintosh! You must be comfortable with through hole soldering along with one component that is surface mount. This is a good kit to test your skills in this area! If you are not comfortable soldering please choose a fully assembled kit.
  • Board Only: yeah, you can get just the PCB if you want.

Please note regarding ST chips: Due to the global chip shortage, most of the BluePill boards that are sent out will be clones and not genuine ST chips.  They may be marked as ST but fake, they may be marked as CHK or HDM or something else.  They are still 100% compatible and supported by BlueSCSI, are all tested before being sent out.
