    I have one. Hadn’t had time to use it yet and didn’t get any tv time from my wife last night. Maybe tonight if someone doesn’t answer your query first. I think it will be fine provided the raspbian base is updated.

    First I heard of it here, four usb ports will be very handy 🙂 Just need a decent 2A psu

    If you have found the solution to your problem please mark the topic as resolved.

    i would love to just pull chip from B and put into B+ without any problems or updates. as im using a micro-chip w adapter in B unit now, would be an easy swap

    My setup is also on a micro sd (with adapter) so I should be able to quickly test it tonight. I don’t anticipate any problems.

    The 4 USB ports is appealing indeed. Yes, I know you can use a powered hub, but I don’t like using a powered hub.

    I can happily report that the B+ works just fine. I didn’t have to change a thing.

    same! just like switching normal pi’s awesome! I’ve packed away my powered hub, and have my F710 & wireless keyboard with track pad and my usb mounted file system! all plugged in the Pi+ now I could add my other F710 or I could actually start using my PiFi
