CAUTION! This is a PREVIOUS version of a Raspberry Pi board – 3 Model B. If you are not sure what model you need – most likely you need the latest, most powerful version – Model 3 B PLUS.

The RASPBERRYPI-2-MODB-1GB is a second generation Raspberry Pi. Raspberry Pi2 model B board is a credit card sized single board computer that plugs into your TV and keyboard. This is a little PC which can be used for many of the things that desktop PC does. The design is based on Broadcom BCM2837 system on chip with 900MHz ARM Cortex-A53 quad core processor, Dual Core VideoCore IV Multimedia coprocessor and 1GB RAM. This board is powered from 5V adapter with micro USB connectivity and runs on operating systems such as Raspbian, RaspBMC, Arch Linux, RISC OS, OpenELEC, Pidora and Microsoft Windows10. Previous versions of Raspberry Pi 2 Model B use the BCM2836 SoC, which contains a quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 processor. The Raspberry Pi 2 Model B v1.2 board uses BCM2837, which contains a quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor. It is necessary to update to the latest (October 2016) version of the device firmware and Linux kernel to allow the board to boot up properly.

    I bought this for my 5 y/o to teach her basic I/O of computer, and give her something to play minecraft on and watch cartoons. I was up and running in 1/2 hour. This little pi is fast as blazes. Also OMXPlayer is great for .avi and .mkv files at 720P. Shipping was quick (1 week). I am quite pleased and will order another when they are off backorder. Cheers and thank you!

    I am impressed by the delivery. I got the Pi in 24 hours. The only downside is it doesn’t include the power supply, which I thought is inclulded in my additional purchased start kit.

    Ordered Saturday, arrived Tuesday! You can’t beat the price or the shipping from any other online retailer, ebay included. Using it for OSMC and it’s been great so far.***GET THE POWER SUPPLY THEY SELL HERE*** Even if you have a 5v 2a charger at home or think you can get a cheap one from China, don’t bother. The quality of both the plug and the cable are important, they need to be built to POWER something, not just charge it and transfer data. You will not (conveniently) find a better plug/cable solution for less than what they sell here.
