I use them, have a PI2 upstairs and a PI3 downstairs. I know at least 2 guys from here that use them as well. I like them. Extremely easy to set up. I know u can do a lot with them. I can play video games on mine like NES, SNES and Sega games which is awesome.

I have 3 running in my house (Pi 3). Two running as media center systems, and one running as a smart speaker. The one media center I will switch to a retro gaming system from time to time. Software I am running on and off on the Pi.....

LibreElec
Rasplex
RetroPie
RuneAudio

Next project will be an openhab server for home automation.

What are you looking at running it for?

You probably get better bang for your buck with a preinstalled android box, but if you like to tinker and want to play with setups, I highly recommend a Pi3.
