One for the geeks. This is the cheapest I have seen this model and with free Prime delivery too.

Delivered price from The Pi Hut for comparison is £25.99.

Not the newest or most powerful model out there but a very capable unit.
Cheers

Is this pi3 or pi4?

It’s a 3A+, so the same processor and features as the 3 but a smaller board and less memory.

Not quite A models have one USB and no Ethernet port B have four USB ports and Ethernet on board However both DO have Wi-fi

Depends on the intended use as to if that’s important to you

What's the best value Pi 4 kit you can get? Looking to get one for Pi-Hole

A 4 is a bit of a waste if you're only using for pi-hole

It's my first one so I will end up doing other things with it, they aren't much money so I may as well get the top one. Ended up getting a kit off Amazon for just under £90.
Would this be good for pi Hole and pi vpn?

Looks like it doesn't have ethernet. I'm guessing that'd be something you'd want for pi Hole? Not sure though, I've not looked into the requirements

I gather that the Pi Zero W can be used quite happily for purely Pi Hole purposes. That should be a bit cheaper and I think it's one of the most frugal power consumers of the Pi line up.

I use my current pi zero (along with a £7 usb dongle) to feed aircraft positions to various plane tracking websites.

I’ve bought this upgraded model to use as a retro games console using RetroPie and also as a part time web proxy using Squid.

All sorts of exciting projects out there, depends what you’re into really.

Ah nice
What sites you use to get the setups

Checked the pi hole website and it suggests that it works fine with Wi-Fi.
Pi 2 running Pi Hole here, only been running a few days but seems to cope well.
I'm running a Pi Hole on a Pi Zero (non W) with a usb to ethernet adaptor. Has been running for the few weeks it's been operational fine.
As Pi Hole is basically a DNS redirector it doesn't need a lot of processing power, though, if you're going to run a personal VPN on it too it's going to direct all your connections data through itself so will probably be a little hampered by the Pi's 10/100Mbit networking (I wouldn't personally run a VPN over wifi though [also Pi 3b+ is ~300Mbits and Pi 4 is around full gigabit])

Good deal for basically a Pi 3b+ if you don't need all the USB and the ethernet (and 512MB of RAM is enough)
Anyone know the power draw of this vs a pi zero w and a pi 3b+?

I'm running pi-hole on a Model 2. It's been running without a hitch for a year now, handling both DNS and DHCP. Faster, more private and just generally better.

For those of you thinking about getting started:

Simple setup guide
Good list of blacklists to consider applying + The Antisocial Engineer blacklist
Some things you may want to whitelist (including XBOX live achievements)

I think the official requirements for the Pi Zero W is a 1amp 5v adapter, and the 3B+ is 3amp 5v adapter. Actual running power is about 300-600ma for the Pi Zero W and about 900-1500ma for the Pi 3B+ (last I remember looking up anyway)
