The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ (Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Plus) is the latest version of the Raspberry Pi, a tiny credit card size computer. Just add a keyboard, mouse, display, power supply, micro SD card with installed Linux Distribution and you'll have a fully fledged computer that can run applications from word processors and spreadsheets to games.

As the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B + supports HD video, you can even create a media centre with it. The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B is the first Raspberry Pi to be open-source from the get-go, expect it to be the defacto embedded Linux board in all the forums.

Set it up as an OMC/Kodi media centre, works very nicely.

Logistics experience

I have been part of the transport and logistics industry in Australia for 15 years. The experience I have just witnessed and been part of was hands down the best I have witnessed and sets a benchmark in communication I envy.

Just what I ordered. No issues and has been running for nearly 1 month now without a break. Solid piece of hardware and does exactly what I set it up to do.

Raspberry Pi3 B+

By: on 27 December 2018
This is my first Raspberry Pi and I didn't exactly know what it's capable of, for me it's to replace a problematic Media Player. Well blow me down, not only is it faster than expected and feature rich but also very flexible with plenty of OS's to choose from. Kodi is brilliant on the Pi 3 B+ it's exceeding my expectations/needs @ FHD resolution. Such a small package too it really surprised me, so cool. It has been a month and a half since purchase and I like it a lot. So much that I should have bought a few right from the start. Lovely build quality, design and low power consumption, I understand why they're so popular. More are Pi are on the horizon Littlebird. Thank you for your videos it's helped me to get to know the Pi 3 B+ and the capabilities.

Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ - works great!!

By: on 17 December 2018
So simple to use. Worked perfectly on delivery. Using it for retropie emulator station, and as a tiny workstation for developing atari 2600 and c64 hobby projects. Rasbian seems like a great little capable workstation. the PI 3 seems to have enough grunt for the job and, under rasbian, it certainly feels like a capable computer system. I'd recommend getting the official power supply with it - I occasionally get "under voltage detected" with my off-the-shelf usb adapter I grabbed, and power supplies of the corrrect voltage/amp seem harder to find that I expected, though it still seems to function fine.
