Omega Onion 2+ Price Increase???



  • I bought a few Omega's for my projects a few months back as its price was good at $5 and $9 for the 2 and 2+ respectively.
    I was shocked today to find out the price has increased more than double to $10.75 and $13.

    What happened guys?? You are now in the realm of the Pi Zero W, which I would personally choose over the Omega as costs are the same.



  • the $5 & $9 were the kickstarter/indiegogo prices. and they always said after those ended prices would increase. i have not been following the increases though since i got several units during campaign.



  • I don't agree, becouse i got mine 2+ a few mounths after they finished indiegogo, and the prices after that went up like 0.20-0.50 each month and yes a pi zero W is better quality for the price



  • Pi Zero W is a loss leader. That part can someday disappear. I agree spec wise its better but Onion is much better when handling network tasks IMO. Dual WiFi, 5 Ethernet Ports, etc. It's also PCB board solderable. If the Pi Zero W was PCB board solderable I would of went with that part.
