    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    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).
    Cons:
    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 ne...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Nice build. Well documented. Support website: http://www.suptronics.com/RPI.html. The RTC on this unit is pretty accurate. Love that I can power this with a wall wart now. There are slits made to connect rpi camera module. Fits nice and sturdy due to nylon ...
    Cons:
    the voltage regulator on this board gets pretty hot with a 12v supply. could have added a heat sink.

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    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
    Cons:
    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 pr...

    Great complement for RaspberryPi

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    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).
    Cons:
    Lack of documentation: needs a power supply and must power RaspberryPi from this board (not microUSB). Reset pins are kind of...

    The best expansion for your RasPi

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    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.
    Cons:
    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 to com...
