    Excellent board for an addon for the Raspberry Pi! Was simply plug and play for the board and instantly worked when I booted the Pi. Only down side was that it switched video specifically to VGA, but I know that was the programming of the Pi and otherwise did exactly as it said it should! Read more

    Pros: Excellent and useful addon for raspberry. Excellent set of furniture to fit all components tight. Cons: Overheat warning. I recomend put two small heatsinks to two small contrlollesr near USB and HDMI connectors. It's work fine but very hot. I used SKU255484 heatsinks and thermal glue. Read more

    The power supply section gets you out of power problems. The powered usb hub also gets you out of power problems. I use the real time clock and vga adapter. I have not tried the serial port or the sd card readers ports yet (soon). It would be nice if the battery holder for the real time clock was horizontal so the card is not so tall in case other cards ... Read more

    This product makes using the R-Pi easier in a classroom setting. I use it to convert my Pi into a media centre for use in my class. It is also great for adding other components to the Pi Not a con but a warning. Pay very close attention to the syntax of the commands you have to enter to get the product to work properly. I misplaced a single space and ... Read more

    Great complement for RaspberryPi Development. It's a must to allowing the use of VGA monitor, serial port, USB hub, a more stable power supply, etc. It also provides a RTC clock for the RPi (a missing piece). Lack of documentation: needs a power supply and must power RaspberryPi from this board (not microUSB). Reset pins are kind of weak. Get it if ... Read more

    Just the perfect expansion for you RasPi, excellent to have a VGA out if you don't have a HDMI enables screen. Go from 2 to 4 USB ports and have a card-reader as well. No need for a micro-USB cable just use a 12V 2.5A power adapter. I could not get the real-time clock working, a driver is needed that isn't in the distributions. And I couldn't find one ...
