Raspberry Pi 3 Sold for $29.95 on DFRobot (Promo)

Orange Pi Development Boards

As I browsed various sites checking out new arrivals and potential promotion, I found out DFRobot has now a promotion for the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B board for $29.95 apparently taking place between the 8th and 10th of each month (not only February). I added it to my cart to check out shipping to my address, and unless you can pick it up to their office, shipping adds $6, for a total of $35.95 shipped. Whether that is worth it depends where on your locale price and custom regulations.

DFRobot does offer free (DHL) shipping for order over $150, but you can’t just buy 5 Raspberry Pi 3 boards at the discounted price, since the special offer apply to “one only one piece of Pi 3”, so you’d have to purchase something else from their website if you don’t want to pay for shipping. Nevertheless, even if you have nothing to buy right now, but may purchase items from them later, it’s still something to keep in mind, since the discount should be repeated in subsequent months on the same days.

    That’s a free e-book “The Heart of It All: Building a Media Center with Raspberry Pi”.

      But it struggles with x265 videos though… Most of my movies are x265

    @Jerry
    In this case ‘cheap’ doesn’t mean inexpensive, it means poorly built and low in quality or functionality.
