Re: SD Card performance in R-Pi onboard slot

It would help greatly if people running these benchmark tests could include part numbers of the SD cards they are testing so that we can make informed decisions on our next SD card purchase.

Re: Wireless WIFI & Keyboard/Mouse without HUB?

Some more searching reveals that people are using wifi adapters with the RTL8188CUS chipset without a hub successfully. There are reports of it drawing around 100 to 115 ma under heavy load, which means it can slightly exceed the 100ma spec, but since the polyfuses are rated at 140ma, it looks like ...

Re: Finding the right SD Card (what are the B#'s)

I was wondering the same thing about the SanDisk "B" codes, as I can not find them anywhere. I just ordered a Transcend Class 6 card that is listed in various places as working for the time being, so I can just try the pi out. When the SD card situation gets sorted out I will order whatever is the f...

Wireless WIFI & Keyboard/Mouse without HUB?

Has anyone been able to get the following to work in combination WITHOUT a hub with the raspberry pi? I just received the pi and I am ready to order the necessary parts. I have searched the forums and internet and can find one or the other that works without a hub, but I have yet to come across some...

Re: Raspberry Pi Review

I decided to keep my order for the pi. The most important thing is that the money is going to help out an organization with good intentions. Even thought it is archaic hardware, It will certainly be more fun to play with than most Toys R Us toys. I never used any ARM products, so it will allow me to...

Raspberry Pi Review

Below is a review that was just released today. Between this review and some user's impressions, I am debating on canceling my order (it is supposed to ship next week). I figure by the time I get the pi, a case, SD card, etc., etc., I am going to spend a lot of money for a slow piece of hardware tha...

Re: Other Raspberry Pi forums out there ?

<t>Because no-one on here has been posting about pi cases?<br/> <br/> <br/> NO, because some suppliers who are using<br/> Newark/ElementI4 as their distribution network follow and post on<br/> their forum. That means if I find something I like, I can order it in<br/> the USA, without going through t...

Re: WiFi Adapter Support

<t>I also have a TP-Link WN722N on order, although it will probably wind up on one of my desktop computers, where the high gain antenna will come in handy (I will use it to VNC into the pi).<br/> <br/> I am more interested to see if someone can get the Medialink MWN-USB150N to work with the pi, whic...
