Think carefully if you have a use for it because probably 3/4 of Raspberry Pi's sold end up sitting around unused in drawers and cupboards. People buying them on impulse is why there are always shortages.

And specifically for the Zero, decide whether you really need something in the smallest and lowest-powered form-factor with minimum of ports - eg drone, balloon project, battery powered stuff etc. If it's just for Kodi, Retrostation etc then you'll be much better off with a 2 or 3 rather than have a Zero with a bunch of adapters and hubs hanging off it.

This looks good thanks for sharing, I never got round to building mine have all sorts of bits and cases laying around lol may have to buy this and get started xD

may also get this and give it a go

"Please note! Due to heavy demand orders including a Pi Zero W may take up to three days to ship."

what's the price usually?

Bummer. I've got 3 of the old type I still haven't used.

I've got 3 of the Pi2's and 1 of the Zero's..

Only have 2 running at the minute - one running PiHole, blocking adverts from all internet connected devices on my network and one running an ADSB receiver, providing updates to flightware for flight tracking purposes..

I recommend pihole to stop adverts when browsing for sure, and it also stops adverts in games on phones etc.

would this be powerful enough to run retropie for emulation?

it's 9.60 plus 2.50 delivery.
not a deal if you're looking for a discount, but a deal in terms of bargain price hobby gadget.

and nice timing, i had the previous version in my shopping basket for a week, was going to buy today, now i don't need the wifi dongle.

It was just released, this is the standard price. Good deal for what you get though.

Its only the Pi itself no cable

What cable were you expecting? Power lead? Surely anyone who's enough of a geek to want to play with one of these must have a boxload of micro USB cables.
I suppose a miniHDMI cable (or adapter) would be useful, but many people will run it headless so it would be a waste to ship one with every unit.

pi zero will run retropie no problems just not the 32 bit consoles, I built 4 for Xmas presents using a nes cartridge, very cool, this new zero adds wi-fi n Bluetooth which will make kodi another easy option plus configuring the pi through ssh, so glad they did this well worth a tenner

can this run kodi with hdmi out?

Also here but a bit more expensive https://www.modmypi.com/cart
Just in case stock runs out on thePiHunt
£12.59

I have no need for this (like my other Pi which I used to use for XBMC and the BBC micro that I've never used)... but of course I'll buy one as I'll definitly use it in a project, yes, I'm very sure I will....hmmmm

It's a bare bones PC mainly used for DIY projects, Kodi and taking up space in drawers (that's where mine is).

To get this running you need a power source (mobile phone charger), micro SD memory card, keyboard and mouse and an ability to access the internet. A virtual keyboard and mouse controlled by your phone may work as it contains Bluetooth? (Can anyone confirm?) So you may well have all that is needed to get this up and running.

Tempted but I was also tempted on the last Pi deal and I know in all honesty it will get played with for an afternoon and then put in the drawer with my other Pi.

Damn you HUKD.

Edit, forgot to add a micro HDMI to HDMI lead so you can see it on your TV.

If you need to ask, its probably not something you're interested in.

Its got a million uses, all computer based, either retro games console, low-traffic website hosting, kodi/streaming, weather monitoring, ship/aircraft monitoring, blocking adverts on networks, file hosting etc..

In fairness it's a great way to get into tinkering. I know I done nothing with my Pi except get Ubuntu and Python on my TV but I'm now developing Android Apps. Most people bought these for a cheap version of Kodi but even that involves having to dig a bit deeper than switching a PC on. Go for it FromTheMidlands.

Is it easy to set Kodi up on this? Will it handle 1080p content ok?

Maximum 1 per order. Are they EVER going to manufacture zeros in sensible quantites?

Still, maybe it will cause FriendlyArm and Orange Pi to lower the prices on their Wifi enabled devices.

can this run kodi with hdmi out?

Yes on both counts, note the HDMI is a mini connector, so appropriate cable or adapter required. Installation is straightforward, 1080p playback is fine in h264 format, video decoding is one of the pi's strongpoint, the KODI interface itself will seem a little slow though if you want to surf around the channels.

I currently use a Squid proxy with a VPN (among other things) on an HP Micro Server.

I've bought an XBOX duke controller to put one of my zero's in.
A camera for another.
And a spare which would have been nice to have wifi for.

Coming up as £15.60 for me

It will be fine for video playback, but as mentioned by cochon, the I/O will be fairly slow, the GUI won't be so responsive. If you want something purely for Kodi, maybe invest in a well supported S905/X Android box and put LibreELEC on it.

​So how does that work ?
Does it remove the ad completely or is there a blank box where the ad should be?

Thank you! I now have a use for my Pi

is the cable included

thefemaleboook

is the cable included



It's barebones. Just the Pi Zero.

does it run drastic?

I think this is the regular price, so it is not really a good deal, but I've still voted hot because these are such good value anyway. These are marvelous for dads to help their 12 year old sons learn about IT :-)

The pi-hole software looks interesting. I will be trying that out when I next have some time.

Got to say, the pi zero for £9.60 vs the £4 standard is actually fantastic value. The £5.60 difference disappears on an otg adapter and wifi module for all the other zeroes I have. Lately I've been reaching up for the edimax 7811 over the no brand ebay dongles, so that alone is more £££. The factory overclock thrown in is just great.

So I've now ordered from pimaroni and pi hut. The annoying part is that I ordered a v1.3 just last night. Probably won't be cancelling the order anytime soon though....

I have more of the pi's than I have time to actually do a different thing with each of them. It started out all those years ago with a v1 B just to force me to learn some disciplined linux. (Long time reluctant windows user )

Now the inventory stands at:
1 x B (with the free 512mb upgrade thanks to the huge lead time... wasn't it months or something??)
1 x 2B
1 x 3
1 x Zero v1.0
2 x Zero v1.2
4 x Zero v1.3
2 x ZW

And the only thing i've specifically had to learn during my playing was a bit of systemd. (And Nano to be fair....)
