Detailed Review:







It all started with this post.......  Roadtest help - Raspberry Pi 3 in a box (official kit) I need your help! post your questions!



I had such great response from this...mind you I wanted more.  So while people asked questions I started to go forward into learning everything that was included so lets start with the unboxing.



I have to say that was a lot of fun I scheduled it out so a new video would be out every week until I finished giving me enough time to complete each part.  Up next we have the review.



I will say my expectations were certainly met in this kit.  so lets head back to those community questions now.



So I thought I would add my test for the stress test here and how I did it so you can try as well.



Stress test install: sudo apt install stress-ng mesa-utils

to run cpu stress: stress-ng --cpu 0 --cpu-method fft

to run gpu stress: glxgears -fullscreen

if not installed htop can be installed with

sudo apt-get install htop

launch it by typing in terminal: htop

in another terminal type: watch -n 1 "vcgencmd measure_clock arm; vcgencmd measure_temp"

and in the 3rd terminal window when ready to run type: stress-ng --cpu 0 --cpu-method fft


So with all that being said if you caught the part in the video about the giveaway that's right why not pass on some knowledge onto someone else.

post below and let me know about your first experiences with raspberry pi are to be entered into the draw.

(currently only the "Adventures in Raspberry Pi Second edition" will be available for the giveaway)


Thanks to element14 and as well as Raspberry Pi for having such a great Roadtest I learnt so much and had a lot of fun.
