Kodi on Raspberry Pi 2 Model B

The other week while watching KordKutters I heard the team talking about the Raspberry Pi 2 being a great device for running Kodi, I was slightly hesitant because I have first generation Pi's, and as some of you may know they are pretty sluggish at times.

Anyway, I dropped the cash on the device to check it out. I bought the:
The major thing to note here is that the Pi 2 doesn't use SD cards, it uses microSD cards, which is great for compactness, but I was surprised - you can tell this was an impulse buy and not researched.

Anyway, as soon as I received the device I loaded the microSD card with the latest beta OpenELEC (5.95.5) - it runs like a dream, snappy GUI (Conq) and quick, timely playback.

As some of you may know I had posted about the history of my devices and my recommendations, I think I would go with the Pi 2 now...

Let me know your thoughts and feelings in the comments, or if you have any questions.
