Once you have added the shipping insurance to get a tracking number, which you should add, it becomes £26.21.

RS Online have them for £29.99, so for the extra £3.78 you get faster delivery, UK supplier, a 100% guarantee of no customs charges and easier return policy in the event of a warranty return.

Ooh. Haven't heard about that. Normally these things are sprung on us. Have you got a link?

Yeah? Details please.

"origin: British"

Rumors about the Pi started last year or even in 2015.... Anyway heat for this Pic 3

Surely they are British, because they are made in the UK? How are they then shipping from China? Are they likely to copies? It seems a bit counter-intuative to me, ro ship them to China, and then be able to sell them for less!

Hard to justify going from a 2 to a 3 because the lack of RAM increase. Hopefully a future model will have 2GB.

As far as I'm aware, the pi is manufactured both in the UK and also in China.

Just what I need... another doorstop.

Anyone know if there would be much of an improvement upgrading from a Model 2 for running OpenVPN and Pi-Hole?

Its just my assumption. Every year on the 28th of Febuary (or whatever the last day of Febuary maybe), the Raspberry Pi Foundation releases a new Raspberry Pi. (It might as well be that the Pi 4 won't come next year! Link to Article!)

    Hello Adel,


    It is made in China.

    There is no difference between Chinese version and English version

i ordered one of these from gearbest over three weeks ago, still waiting for ti to arrive. the tracking info on the website doesn't tell you anything after it leaves them though so is a bit useless. everything from them just takes so long to arrive.

I'm pretty sure I read a comment from the founder Eben Upton and it wasn't something on the near horizon. Will try and find the interview

I understood it was 2019. Please can you provide your source? Thanks.

This is only a deal because its a way of not paying VAT because its more expensive than the RSOnline pre-tax price. So go ahead and enjoy if you are happy to join the happy band of tax evaders and encourage the businesses that feed off them. But please don't complain when the state has to cut back on stuff you value.

How do you get PiHole to work with HUKD?

I’m actually not using it at the moment, but isn’t there a whitelist in Pi-Hole? I was able to whitelist the site in uBlock Origin

HUKD is file, it's the affiliate/Get Deal links that get blocked for me.

The only posts I've found are people saying they uninstalled PiHole in the end

I have ordered two off gear best and received them last week. I now have a lovely retropie system running with help from you tube. Nothing wrong with them.
RS online are £35 with VAT. I have now ordered some off amazon for £32 as wanted a guarantee

I ordered 3 from gearbest back on 11th September. They never arrived. Gearbest say they shipped but that I have to wait until mid October before they'll do anything about it. Other stuff I've ordered has been ok delivery wise from gearbest.

Think I'll stick with UK supplier from now on for pi's.

Ebay UK has them for £28.79 inc free postage. I know its £3.95 more, but for those you want to buy British and get it quicker.

Are you sure?
This link here says nothing until 2019.

Is it easy to build the retro console with this?
Love the idea of loads of old console games on one device.
Or could I add the relevant software to my cenovo mini pc (android / windows system)?

Many young boys like to think of pop stars and film stars when in bed. You are not alone young man. If you are Catholic though, you will burn in hell for all eternity.

With current memory prices it would push the price up quite a lot percentage wise. Although I am not sure on DDR2 pricing.

I'm running Pi-hole 24-7 on my Pi3. It never seems to fail. Gets rid of all ads on YouTube that plays on our Samsung Smart tv. Worth it just for that.
As for an improvement I have no experience of the Pi2 to compare to, but I do run Pi-hole and Retropie at the same time with no ill effects to either.

Yes it is easy. If you have a computer and an SD card and access to the Retropie website it's pretty simple to do.
It does require some computer savvy, but if you can follow instructions step by step then you'll be running in next to no time.

Been running Pi-hole for at least 9 months. And never needed a reboot because it failed. It got rebooted because Retropie glitched, but was running fine under the telly with no issues previously or since.
