Orange Pi is a brand of single board computers made for embedded enthusiasts. Powered by the Quad Core Allwinner H3, this board is capable of 4K Hardware H265 Decoding, OpenGL ES, and much more. It runs at a blazing fast 1.2GHz and outclasses the Raspberry Pi 2 while rivaling the Raspberry Pi 3.
Make sure to purchase a high quality 2A power supply. Many power supplies rated 2A will only deliver 0.5A or less! See B01CMZ96EG
Software: Please use the Armbian images found on http://www.armbian.com/ or http://share.loverpi.com/downloads/opi/one/
They provide the latest community images based on Debian. Do not use the Raspbian image from Raspberry Pi as it is not compatible. Raspbian does not have out of the box support for any board other than Raspberry Pi. Raspbian images for the Orange Pi are based on ARMv6 older code and runs slower on ARMv7 chips like the Allwinner H3.
Raspberry Pi is a trademark of the Raspberry Pi Foundation.

Short version though, if you're not confident enough with Linux to run it as your desktop OS or if you haven't had a SBC before don't get this one. If you are comfortable with Linux and know your way around ARM based systems already then this is a pretty good board for this price point.
I almost forgot: If you're planning on using the GPIO, see this phenomenal Instructables post by DuncanW10. He's got at least three Instructables related to getting this board up and running, but this is the one I found most useful.[...]
Things to note:
Listen to all of the reviewers (myself included) and do not use images from the Orange Pi website. I suggest Armbian, based on Debian.
Best used on Ethernet, I gave up trying to get a USB wifi dongle to work with Armbian. For remote solar powered cameras I'm using an external Ethernet/WiFi adapter. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B004UAKCS6/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Use a power supply rated at least 2A at 5VDC instead of a USB charger, or use a high current USB charger.
Keep the cable length from power supply to Orange Pi as short as possible. Don't use cheap thin gauge cables. Voltage drop is a problem at low voltage levels like 5VDC.
The board will seem dead the first time you boot Armbian, go do something else, it is expanding the file system and doing other first time tasks.
If the board seems DOA it probably is your power supply/cable, really.
You CAN NOT use ordinary USB to microUSB cables to power this board, you need a small barrel connector.
LoveRPI is a reliable vendor, their kits that include power cable are a good idea.
Definitely put a heatsink on the CPU! This board will happily cook itself to death if you push it into overheating.
I'm using MJPEG_Streamer under Armbian (Jesse) and collecting video from all of my cams with Blue Iris.
These worked great out of the box, I installed armbian, and had them up and running in no time. I didn't use a lot of features on the board, but was happy with the USB, non-USB based on-chip ethernet controller, and SD card performance (with SanDisk micro SD cards).
I heard they get hot easily, but I didn't stress the board very much, so I never had any problem with that.
Plus, available Prime for $17/ea, I couldn't find any comparable board for what I needed to do at that price.
Very fast used retro orange image
To add rom u go to apps then in a desktop mode u drag and drop from sd card, watch etaprime on youtube.com
This little cheap board blew my expectations.

Limited support from manufacturer (Armbian does support this board though).
