Re: The Raspberry Pi Model B+ Q&A thread

less. I measure the B having a USB port overhang of 7mm. The B+ has a USB port overhang of 2mm (and ethernet is the same). Great, I know it's a detail but crucial. The current drawing only has measurement to centers no connector widths or heights. We did a drawing based on measurements we took of a...

Re: Camera Board in stock at MCM

To chime in on the shipping charges - we use a price based shipping model, so if you have < $20 it will be less, while more expensive orders are charged more. Not ideal for small bits like the camera board, we know. The full shipping rate table can be found here -http://www.mcmelectronics.com/conten...

Re: Shipping Cost

To clarify the shipping costs - our shipping model is still based on your order value, not the weight of the order. Because of this, some smaller orders get charged a bit more for shipping, while lots of larger orders are probably being charged less than competitors would charge. Unfortunately, this...
