The Raspberry Pi is a single-board computer developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation. The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It's a capable little PC which can be used for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing, and games, as well as plays high-definition video. The design is based around a Broadcom BCM2835 SoC, which includes an ARM1176JZF-S 700 MHz processor, VideoCore IV GPU, and 512 Megabytes of RAM. This revision 2.0 board features two mounting holes for easy installation, a built-in reset circuit, and can be powered via the USB data ports. The design does not include a built-in hard disk or solid-state drive, instead relying on an SD card (not included) for booting and long-term storage. The Raspberry Pi is intended to run Linux kernel based operating systems.

Broadcom BCM2835 700MHz ARM1176JZFS processor with FPU and Videocore 4 GPU

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Device

Pros: Best $40 blown. Got my device earlier and it is what it seems to be: fully functioning computer in a tiny package. Slap an OS on it and code around and this little slab can be anything from a PC to a home theater to a game console to a core component in a special application. Home surveillance, robotics, you name a function a computer can be and it does it, as long as you have a 5V 1A power brick to spare, a video cord, a keyboard and an 8 GB SD Card. Runs warm but not too warm, very versatile in what it supports. Best birthday gift ever.

Cons: No peripherals included, you just get the pi. No in-box instructions, you'll need to hit the website for them and flash the SD card yourself. ...that's it, that's all I've got. Even installing is easy if you follow instructions properly.

Other Thoughts: This sucker's my new home theater and emulation console for my man cave. And I am one happy man.

5 out of 5 eggsNice for hobby projects

Pros: Why I like the Pi is the GPIO slot. Using either i2c or SPI, it is really simple to set the Pi up as the central control point for a network of microcontrollers. In addition to the ethernet port and a collection of freely available web servers (might take a bit of googling), with just a basic knowledge of programming and electronics it becomes easy to set up a web controlled network, limited only by your imagination.

Cons: With a whopping 700mhz ARM CPU, using it as a laptop/desktop replacement is tough. These days I just end up running it headless and controlling it through SSH.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat small computer

Pros: Versatile
Linux, open source
Lots of sensors, controllers

Cons: SD card sticks out a bit
CPU a little underpowered
No USB 3

Other Thoughts: Great device. Set it up as a samba file server and cloud server using openvpn.
Occasionally use it as a silent, low power replacement for my HTPC.
Works equally well as my electric monster PC which heats up the living room.
Planning to use it for more stuff like, wireless multi room sound system, print servers, wireless monitor drivers, advanced remote servo controlled sailboat models, security cameras.

5 out of 5 eggsRPi for the micro programmer

Pros: Cheap
Overclocks easy
Compact Design
Easy Setup
GPIO pins and Python

Cons: slow not for normal computing (docs, browsing)
license fees to unlock hardware codecs for video

Other Thoughts: If you are into micro processors/controls programming it is a nice platform. Also good for vintage video emulator.

Not an everyday cheap computer or tablet. Have not tried media or HTPC abilities. I bought it to learn Python and compliment my Arduino Uno and do breadboard projects and controls.

With lots of effort and determination I got my Rocketfish BT Keyboard/Mouse combo to work.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little thing

Pros: Just started loading "Noobs" OS on it tonight after work. Learned that you gotta have some sort of OS on the SD card to get an image.

Cons: None so far. I had thought during initial startup that I had shorted it out cause of the smell. Seems I didn't test it out fully and it works wonderfully.

Other Thoughts: Connection to VGA would have been great and handy, but what can you do. HDMI and RCA work fine.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

Pros: Shipped quickly and arrived right on time! Great experience all around once again. Thanks Newegg!

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: This device does not come with any instructions. If your new and looking to get the OS for the device you will have to go to raspberry pi's website.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little unit

Pros: This is a great unit. I have setup a couple of operating systems on separate ad cards one for hi def videos on my big screen and one for file transfer and other office options. I'm still new to this and I'm not sure all the functions I can do with this. but I'm figuring that out every day. I have some other items ordered for using with this.I have a wireless keyboard and mouse combo that works well and and waiting for the wireless connector to show. I copied the OS and it ran first time everything worked out of the box. Not much in the way of instructions with it but you can go to the web site for that.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsHTPC for ageing televisions

Pros: Fantastic device. Some of the highlights are;
1. OS on an SD card - allows you to try out various OS's with little to no work. Can switch easily between openelec and raspbian easily.
2. RCA video output + audio port - add a 3.5 mm to RCA audio cable and you can plug this in to your old (seriously old) tv and have an HTPC on it.
3. Ultra low power - leave it on all the time, no worries about power consumption.
4. Accessories - there's tonnes of them, newegg needs to get in on it.

I bought this specifically to hook up to an old 27" television I had. When I came accross the Pi, I was pleased that it had the RCA outs and had to give it a try. For less than $70 bucks in parts (Pi, cables, SD card, case), plus an old 500 GB HD I had a fully functional HTPC for an old TV.

Cons: Not the greatest HTPC out there, but like I said, you can hook it up to anything with RCA inputs. Good luck doing that with anything else. Openelec slows down drastically if you let it download album covers, artwork, etc., but it doesn't affect video playback, just the smoothness of the interface. I'm playing back SD and 720p content, so I can't comment on it's 1080p abilities.

Other Thoughts: This item should have inspired me to do more with it, but I just haven't gotten around to it. Would love to start some projects out there on the web.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome litle device

Pros: great little device, mega small, but has more than enough processing power to run most of my games and watch hd movies on without much trouble. I own two of them, one is hooked up to a bigscreen tv that runs openelec and I can stream movies and tv shows to the tv whenever I want to, and the other, I use as a full desktop computer/web server/torrent server since it's so power efficient. I also use the second one most of the time with my electronics stuff too since if you get into it deep enough and are into microcontrollers, you can actually program the GPIO pins on the raspberry pi to do almost anything you want, just keep an eye on the incoming voltages. It's like a small desktop computer and an arduino put together, but on steroids. To power it, it doesnt use much power at all. I just use these old HTC cell phone wall chargers to power them and the power usage on them are mega low, so they're good for cheap low powered servers.

Cons: doesnt come with power cord, which you can use any 5v, 1A cell phone charger that you have laying around.
