Raspberry Pi B+ Broadcom BCM2835 SoC ARM11 700 MHz Low Power ARM1176JZFS Applications Processor Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: A well designed, tiny ARM-based board. Lots of support available on the web. I use it as a media center using openelec, and made sure to purchase the mpeg-2 license.
It does struggle a little with HD transport streams captured from an HDHomerun, being close to 100% CPU. But, it will work for long periods before playback loses A-V sync or otherwise misbehaves. Stopping playback and restarting the file is usually all that is needed. Occassionally, I have to restart XBMC. I haven't needed to reboot in a month.

Cons: None. Just understand that this is a hobbyist device. Plenty of community support, but you will likely need to search forums for answers at some point.

Other Thoughts: I have only used my Raspberry Pi for one specific purpose. There are so many other things it can do.

Pros: I got this to power my Raspberry Pi, model B+. This device has powered the Pi fine for a month and a half. I'm sure other USB Wall warts would also work, but this was conveniently small.

Cons: none

Pros: I've had the drive about 4 months, no problems. Quiet, 2TB of space, it simply works as it is intended. I'll update again if I start seeing problems, but none so far.

Cons: None
