Description

The brand NEW Raspberry Pi 2 Model B v 1.2 has landed at Pi Supply! The ultra-low-cost, deck-of-cards sized Linux computer has had yet another makeover, this time the Raspberry Pi Foundation have gone all out! The latest addition to the Pi family, the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B takes the platform to a completely new level. Combining a sixfold increase in processing power and a doubling of memory capacity to 1GB with complete backward compatibility with the existing Model B+, Raspberry Pi 2 Model B is the perfect board for professionals and hobbyists alike.

Back-Compatibility note: The Raspberry Pi 2 Model B has the same footprint and layout as the previous Model B+ version, so will fit all Model B+ items.

Note: It is necessary to update to the latest (October 2016) version of the device firmware and Linux kernel to allow the board to boot up properly.

Raspberry Pi 2 Model B Features:

  • Broadcom BCM2837 ARMv7 Quad Core Processor powered Single Board Computer running at 900MHz
  • Double Memory – 1GB RAM so you can now run bigger and more powerful applications
  • Identical board layout and footprint as the Model B+, so all cases and 3rd party add-on boards designed for the Model B+ will be fully compatible.
  • Fully HAT compatible
  • 40pin extended GPIO to enhance your “real world” projects. GPIO is 100% compatible with the Model B+ and A+ boards. First 26 pins are identical to the Model A and Model B boards to provide full backward compatibility across all boards.
  • Connect a Raspberry Pi camera and touch screen display (each sold separately)
  • Stream and watch Hi-definition video output at 1080P
  • Micro SD slot for storing information and loading your operating systems.
  • Advanced power management:
    • You can now provide up to 1.2 Amp to the USB ports – enabling you to connect more power hungry USB devices directly to the Raspberry PI. (This feature requires a 2Amp micro USB Power Supply)
  • 10/100 Ethernet Port to quickly connect the Raspberry Pi to the Internet
  • Combined 4-pole jack for connecting your stereo audio out and composite video out

    RPI v2 is so much faster than the model B I was running before. RPI 2 runs almost like a full fledged PC. Runs Raspian great! After seeing how much better this new version runs over the B, the 3 things I want to try next are:

    1) Kodi (XBMC) HTPC
    2) Open WRT router
    3) RetroPI (reviews say the v2 will run N64 and PS1 emulators much better and smoother)

    Other than that, PI-Supply was very good. They responded to my email about shipping. My order got held up in US customs so it took a while to get to me, but other than that, great product and great company!

    Latest generation of Pi, it’s great, more responsive and quite a joy to use.
    Set up as an OpenElec media centre at the moment, and streaming data off the next work nicely.

    The v2 is quite a revolution. The benefits of that quad core and extra RAM is noticeable as soon as you boot it up and running something relatively intensive (e.g. OSMC) is a significantly smoother, and therefore more pleasant experience. I’d thoroughly recommend this diminutive bit of kit and I think I’ll be upgrading my 1st gen Pis over the next few months.

    Had a problem with delivery (not Pi Supply’s fault!). The guys at Pi Supply responded to my emails and offered to resend the order if it didn’t turn up in the next couple of days. It did turn up, but Pi Supply’s response was reassuring and made me feel I was dealing with a decent company.

    It’s vastly more powerful than a Raspberry Pi B+. This is a Awesome product. If you have any issues with a Raspberry Pi B+ being slow or complains that it can’t do desktop performance then this is the Raspberry Pi 2 B is the perfect solution. It web browses and plays HD video without slowdown and can even do a lot of multi-tasking as a desktop computer solution! The upgrade is a night and day difference even with a over-clocked old Pi, the Pi2B is a winner!.

    Pi Owners wanting desktop performance have nothing to worry about other then a great satisfying product product with a learning curve that is sure to force users learn how to use Linux.

    I highly recommend Short Crust Case to accompany this purchase. The case is a great modern designed case with simple assembly.

    My shipping took exactly 5 weeks as shipping to USA is very slow, but the product came unharmed. Pi-Supply is great on customer services support and replies, they will always reply to you within hours, not days.

    Awesome product. I am running Openelec, Ubuntu and Raspbian on the same device using Berryboot. Looking forward to more purchases from Pi Supply.

    I love this. It is my first Pi. I bought it with the Noobs SD card, and set up with OpenElec and Kodi, to set below my TV and run as a media player, and it is *superb*.

    It streams from the web flawlessly, and plays local 1080p movies from an attached USB HD perfectly.

    I have my Pi, running Max2play after trying a few different music players like volumio and Rune Audio. It works fantastically.

    I know its lame but I have to take 1 star off for the Pi not having an off/on/reset button. It is annoying to have to have it always on or log in with ssh or an app to turn it off without risking SD card corruption. It couldn’t blow out the cost that much to add this feature!

    I first ran it with Openelec with the Kodi media player. Superb.
    Then I made an alternative SD card using Raspbian 1.5. Now it’s also a useful web browser. I also bought the touch screen and frame also highly recommended.

    Only problem is that the web browsers I have tried can’t play videos on the Internet (either they play badly or not at all). That is just a software problem as Xodi (installed using OpenElec) plays Youtube videos well.

    2nd Pi for me, a great step up on my OG Model.

    Currently using OSMC – Check it out OSMC.tv

    Great Service from Pi-Supply!
