There's absolutely no point having a drive faster than the bus speed (USB 2.0) Part of the problem is that Pis have a USB 2.0 interface. The PiDrive has a USB 3.0. So the limit to transfer speed is the Pi, not the PiDrive. A Pi3B will transfer data at a bit better than 30MB/s. An SBC with a USB 3.0 ...

Re: TTL Serial is broken on Raspberry Pi 3

Yeah, the cord is 3V3 logic
And I was using screen on my Mac, had the drivers installed and had the correct pins.
Although I have a model B 512mb pi, I havn't had the chance to try it.

TTL Serial is broken on Raspberry Pi 3

Hi guys,

When I try to connect to my raspberry pi 3 using screen with baud rate as 115200 it prints out random garbage - I have done the TXD to RXD and vice versa crossover but it still doesn't work!

RPI B 512mb as server

Hi, there

My Raspberry Pi Model B 512MB runs server stuffs (MySQL, Apache)
and it's very slow. I have it running at 1100mhz and still... it's SLOW!

Any tips? Any other ideas for this Raspberry Pi? Otherwise, it's time for the "old junk" drawer.

Pi zero order limit

Why do all the Pi-retailers put a limit 1 pi per customer limit? Why don't RS and element14 make them, if they did, there would be a lesser limit.
