Received ahead of delivery date. Kit was in perfect condition and everything was shipped. Made this little beauty into an Openelec media server for my not so smart tv (old). Works as if it was a desktop media server but the size of my hand. Great kit Canakit would recommend this to others instead of one of those Chinese media servers better quality!!! Works with my Logitech mk270 keyboard and mouse with no problems.

Just thought I'd give an update. This Pi2 is awesome. I installed Openelec Kodi and haven't been sorry I did. The unit has paid for it self many times over. No need for the US Netflix and VPN anymore so that is long gone. Just a little education on youtube on how to configure and the rest was easy. Does auto upgrades for Kodi and I just reboot Kodi once a week to clear the cache, that's all the maintenance. If there was six stars I would give it that. Also if anything happens to the board all I have to repair is buy a new Pi3 board and away you go. Easy to repair and upgrade if I ever need to but is working perfect so no need to do anything. This much better than any of those Chinese units for Kodi.

Great kit. Bought this before the third one came out. Was missing an ir reciever which dropped it one star. The other lost star is because it has no power button making this setup freeze constantly. It runs 24/7 as a media player and never even reboots (due to no power button) so it freezes once a week. So good setup, but buy a media box instead of building your own like this.

This kit contains everything that you need to get started with Raspberry Pi (excluding keyboard, mouse and monitor/tv of course). I had mine up and running in minutes and everything worked well. It's really useful getting everything at once, and I think the price is reasonable. For example, this kit comes with a mirco-sd card with noobs on it, which allows you to immediately install your operating system of choice - rather than having to download them. You also get the power adapter instead of having to search for that separately. I originally thought I would not need the wifi module but it has turned out to be very useful since I want to move the pi beyond the reach of my network cable. The only thing that I haven't used is the hdmi cable because I already had some. The case works - but the fit is not the best. This was slightly annoying at first, but practically it doesn't matter. One thing I discovered later was that the pi does not put out enough power through its usb ports to run my 1TB WD portable hard-drives, which I wanted to connect. It turns out this is a common problem - and the solution is to also buy a powered usb hub, so that is something you might want to be aware of.

The Achilles heel of this kit is the WiFi dongle, which can experience reliability problems when connected directly to the case...especially if there are also wires connecting a keyboard and mouse. It took me a couple of days to be able to ping the Rpi2 from another computer. The key was to switch it from one of the bottom 2 ports to one of the top 2, to alleviate crowding. Others have suggested using an extension USB cable.

Apart from this issue, all you need is an HDTV, keyboard and mouse to get going. I plan to use mine as a home automation controller running Homeseer.

Contained everything I needed to get my Pi up and running as a media center, all the components worked well together right out of the box (including the WiFi dongle, no issues there). As a complete beginner to Raspberry Pi (this was my first one) I appreciated not having to worry about having the correct power supply, WiFi dongle, etc. And I never want to type the word dongle again :)

The only reason I deducted 1 star was I would have liked to see a better case with this kit, however for the price can't really complain. The case works well, just a little difficult to put together / take apart if you need to get at the board. Also there is a bit of space between the micro sd card slot and the case; lost my card in there a couple of times while trying to insert it.

Received and it is working, I cannot speak to the noobz that is installed as I purchased a larger sd card and setup RetroPi, which is working great, the case is good for the price of this kit, I think that if you are starting out with these guys this is a pretty good buy.

Great and really easy to use. The only thing I find missing is an off on button. You don't want to be connected all the time but without an off on button, you have to pull the power cord off. Otherwise, great box.

I bought this kit for my husband. It worked perfectly and he had a really easy time setting the Raspberry Pi up to do what he wanted (set it up as a media centre for our TV room). This kit has everything you need to get started on a project.
