5Amazing for everything from a video/file server to a router, or game emulator. Perfect and great price!
By THE Reviewer
The new model (RPi 3) is much faster than its predecessors. Indeed, it’s 10x faster than RPi 1, and double the speed of RPi 2. Now with integrated WiFi and Bluetooth 4.1 which deliver flexibility in siting the Raspberry Pi, and make it more attractive as a set-top computer, a video server, game emulator, and infinitely more. This thing screams!

The performance is amazing on this tiny thing!

I am not commenting on the price by this seller. Yes it's over MSRP, but that's the price for getting it overnight vs standing in line and not getting one because it's sold out. This is just a review of the product itself.

The measurements are identical to the Raspberry Pi 2, which is great since all of your accessories will work perfectly. The RPi 3 includes the same 40-pin GPIO header which allows for extensions into the real world. Blinking lights, motors, talking robots, etc. Same CSI and DSI interfaces to enable camera and display modules.

Same as RPi 2, it includes an HDMI out to view on a TV or computer monitor. But it can easily be set up as headless (no display).

The 802.11a/g/n is provided by the BCM43438 chip, which also provides Bluetooth 4.1 capability.

IMPORTANT! Keep in mind to get things running you’ll three things 1) a microSD card (8GB or larger; class 10) 2) a computer to flash the linux operating system into the microSD 3) a USB keyboard+mouse 4) 2amp micro USB power supply.

Performance is killer on this thing. Booting is incredibly fast and I can’t wait to overclock this little desert. It runs at 1.2GHz (64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex A53). It boots faster, it runs faster, it responds faster.

With the integrated WiFi + Bluetooth, you no longer need a USB hub for all your devices. A bluetooth keyboard/mouse will not take RPi 3’s precious USB ports. You’ll have them open for any peripheral you wish, hard drives, microphones, printers, etc.

Quality of build
Easy of use (assuming you’re techie)
WiFi + BLE support
Much faster processing
Price, again!

The wishful thinking
 Wish the micro SD card was spring loaded
Wish it had more on-board LEDs for debugging.

5Best little computer you can get. (well there is the pi zero too..but this one is a lot more powerful)
By Chris.Buyer
The amount of projects I use a raspberry pi for are too many to mention. This is the best little computer you can get for 35 dollars. Especially with the 3 that wifi and bluetooth are included, everything is so much easier. If you are looking at purchasing this, you either know its amazing already and getting more of them (I have bought so many for projects and gifts its insane) Or you have heard about it and want to see what people think. I cant imagine anyone having an issue with this, unless they have no idea how to use it. But there are several websites, blogs and youtube videos to learn more about it.
