Seems the same price everywhere (Sparkfun, Vilros, Microcenter, PiShop, etc), along with the 1 item limit. You can buy more, but price goes up $5 to $10.

$5 for Zero and $10 for Zero W are the regular price, has been for years. Micro Center offers the Zero W for $5, but that offer is also running for over a year now.

Arrow sent me a Pi Zero W back on Pi Day 2018 as an apology for some mistake on their part (honestly, I have no idea what they were talking about, but that's what they said when I got one randomly in the mail and asked them about it).

Anyway, I'm still not sure what to do with it. Not saying there isn't anything useful that can be done (because that's clearly not true), I just don't know what to do with mine. I was going to set it up as a RetroPie unit, but the Fire Stick 4K is much better for that purpose, so I went that route.

If I didn't already have an InkBird, I might have used it as a temp controller ala CraftBeerPi.

I've been planning to set one up as a print server and another up as a Pi Hole server.

It's great for a Pi-Hole. I was shocked to see how much data it kept from leaving my home.

Microcenter the next time you're in Boston. That's about it.

I was looking at using this for pi mhole too but I don't see an RJ45/NIC on it. How are you implementing your pi hole, over wifi? I'm concerned about latency of my DNS lookups if over wifi.
