This is an excellent deal, right? The power supply even comes with the on/off switch. Thinking about getting a second pi just because of this deal.

Good deal - you essentially get a power supply, case, and heat sinks for $10 (the Pi is $35 of the $45 total).

Great if you need everything in the kit. Thanks OP.

Can I put pihole, home automation, and a VPN server or cloud server all on the same rpi? Or does it have to be three separate rpis?

Wow do Pi Hole's really work? That's pretty cool to be able to block all annoying internet/smartTV ads!

I didn't even think about Plex... but I don't think the RPi can handle being a Plex server for 4K video. 1080p and under content should be fine.

4K videos without stutter or audio issues? And streaming h265 codecs?

Do you use pihole? I have one and Everytime I click a link on Slickdeals it is blocked. I tried white listing site by site but it's annoying. Have you had any experience with that? Sorry to get off topic.

You can, as HASS.io/HA on Haspbian or any other flavor isn't too demanding.

Having a VPN server and pihole on the same pi is feasible from the resource standpoint, but I don't know if you can do it from a networking standpoint. I keep my HA-Pi separate from everything else.

As far as PS2 emulation, not likely. PS, N64 (wonky) are as good as it gets. I don't think Dreamcast works well but I haven't tried it
