Not a deal though if it's the normal price


Your idea of a deal may be completely different to mine. Plenty of people will think a product actually being available for once is a deal.

If they agree with you, they can vote cold. If not, they can vote hot.

Isn't this about the standard price for them...

Not sure... All I know is it's been out of stock for ages

Silly prices 2nd hand and nearly impossible to get.
Purchased, thanks op./
I should be receving one for my latest "The MagPi" sub renewal any time now (I hope)
Yes thanks OP. it's not a deal but they have been OOS for ages, so for me, excellent timely info
Excellent bit of kit, although a little long in the tooth. I do believe these will be given a refresh sometime soon, possibly later this year, as there has been no revision for a while just rereleases with/without headers/WiFi.

Nice tip also, that's prompted me to subscribe
Is this the latest model? I thought it was the 4 for some reason. Needing a Pi for Home Assistant
Pi 4 is the latest overall model, but the Zero is the smallest (albeit nowhere near as powerful as the 4). Depends on your use case what you need
Still got my pi zero, pi1 and pi 4 and no idea what to really do with them. Pi 4 was brought the week it came out.

Pi2 though has been running 4 odd years 24/7 running my home network perfectly. Works too well to justify upgrading for the sake of it.

Definitely one should be a Pi-Hole if you haven't already got one running

What's the best and cheapest model to get for pi-hole?

Do you need to sign up for a 12 month subscription to receive that? I don't suppose they'll have them stuck to the cover in your local WH Smiths?...Do you know when they may be having the promo...wouldn't want to sign up and miss the offer!! Thanks
Yeah is for a 12 month sub.

So far as I know it's a permanent offer (this will be my third free one) certainly on at the moment. See here.

Whatever you can find ! it'll run on any of them... but a zero maybe a false economy, as you'll need adapter leads for ethernet connection etc.
You COULD run a headless pi, but it's far easier to have a keyboard and monitor during setup.
The bigger versions have a HDMI (monitor or TV) and full size USB ports (keyboard and mouse) as well as a full sized ethernet port.
You'll need a psu (phone charger?) and micro sd card - most folk have these in a drawer !
Thanks OP been after one of these for a while. Just set up a notifier on Pimoroni as well!
@beastman This Zero W will run Pi-Hole just fine with no additional adapters etc.

If you're ok with computers and a command line doesn't seem too scary, then headless over WiFi is the smallest/most minimal and there's a really easy to follow guide here:

learn.adafruit.com/pi-…ole

Only prerequisite is that you can SSH to the device already, which really just means having Raspbian Lite running, and you can follow the previous guide for that:

I have built many things with these mainly Gameboy zeros!
This is my last and final build:
youtube.com/wat…=2s
Thanks, I'm looking forward to using this for pi-hole.

One question, once I have pi-hole installed, can I connect to the router via WiFi to use pi hole or do I need to have an ethernet connection using an adapter?

Should be fine... May take a little longer for the kit to connect though.
This is the regular price for Raspberry Pi Zero W.
What is so HOT about it ?

It's not been available for ages. Wherever you can get it the prices are inflated so this seems a good time to post

I use this one with an Ethernet cable. Run it alongside WireGuard and Unbound DNS and using Pi-Hole to handle DHCP no issues at all.

Well done.
I would like my kids to be able to have a good understanding of this stuff.

Would it be beneficial for me to get one for a 7 year old and what exciting projects are doable?

Would you mind to share how you set it up?I ordered the Raspberry Pi zero W this morning and want to use it in a similar fashion on my router.
The daft thing is that those same people complaining 'not a deal' would want to be notified if they were trying to find a particular product in stock but couldn't find it anywhere.

IMO too early to expose 7 yr old to all this stuff unless he is a child prodigy. Exposing them too early can lead to disinterest at a later stage.
Turned up today. I've installed pihole without issue.

I found this guide to be really useful. It means you can connect via wifi and don't need to plug into a keyboard/mouse and can just connect via SSH:

Ordered. Can never have enough Pi
