Product Description

Size: Raspberry Pi Ultimate Kit (Model B+) | Color: Premium Black Case

Update : As of August 14, 2014 the Ultimate Kit comes with the Model B+

Note : The pre-programmed 8GB MicroSD card may appear as 1GB when inserted into a PC as it is pre-partitioned. The remaining space can be expanded as desired.

An exclusive kit from CanaKit (TM) that includes the latest edition of the Raspberry Pi family - The Raspberry Pi B+ (B Plus) and everything you need to get up and running within minutes in the exciting world of Raspberry Pi!

The Ultimate Starter Kit version includes everything in the standard Starter Kit plus all the components needed to start using the GPIO port of the Raspberry Pi B+.

The kit includes a Raspberry Pi B+ case as well as the Raspberry Pi recommended Samsung 8 GB SD Card pre-loaded with "NOOBS" (New Out Of Box Software). Just connect and be up and running immediately!

The kit also includes a 2.5A / 5V USB power supply specially designed and tested for the power hungry Raspberry Pi B+. The included 2.5A adapter comes with a 5-foot cable and can power the B+ and other USB accessories (such as most portable hard drives) without requiring an external powered USB hub.

Or, go in person to buy the things you can.

I've been learning a lot about Linux while having fun with this Raspberry Pi Kit.

Color Name: No Case (Basic Only)Size Name: Raspberry Pi Basic Kit (Model B+) Verified Purchase
The CanaKit basic kit includes the Pi, clear case & 1 amp USB power adapter so you can get started quickly. Here's what I think of the components (& recommendations for other stuff).

5V USB power adapter has long 6 foot cord. Adapter has LED to indicate power. Adapter has 1 amp output to ensure that the Pi receives sufficient power. Since the cord is removable from the adapter you can use this feature to switch the Pi on/off by just unplugging the cord from the adapter end. I would recommend doing this instead of repeatedly plugging/unplugging the micro USB end to avoid damage or wear on the soldered-on microUSB connector.

Clear case is nice. Pi press fits into lower case (don't be alarmed if you hear a snap at some point, that will mean it is locked. NOTE: Do not press on fragile components/connectors and if you're already using your pi before installing it into the case remember to remove your SD card otherwise you will most likely break your SD card connector!). Also, the top of the case has clear light pipes so you will still be able to monitor the LEDs with the case assembled. Finally the bottom of the case does have mounting holes so you can screw the case to a surface for permanent mounting (for projects etc). Case also has cutout for the GPIO pins so it wouldn't get in your way for hardware projects.

As for the Pi, well not much to say - it's a stock Model B (512MB) Pi with no modifications.

RECOMMENDATIONS
Since this is not a complete kit of everything needed to get started, you still may still need any of the following:

I was hesitant to purchase this kit because of what other people said about the price. So, I tried assembling the set myself using the cheapest versions of the same items listed in this kit. I figured out that it IS NOT CHEAPER TO MAKE THIS KIT YOURSELF unless you buy all the parts from one company and pay for shipping only once. (Or, go in person to buy the things you can.)

When I gathered all of the information from AMAZON, this is what I found:

1) Raspberry Pi ($35, new)
2) Hard case ($10-15 if you get a cheap one, $20 for a Tibow brand)
3) SD card ($5-20 depending on the size. I would choose a 16GB 10 class. This kit came with 8GB, pre-loaded with software)
4) Wi-Fi Dongle ($6 for a used one, $11 for new)
5) HDMI cable (We all have these, but if you had to buy one you can find them for $2)
6) Breadboard ($1 for a cheap-o one)
7) GPIO Ribbon Cable ($0.01, okay no biggie)
8) GPIO to Breadboard Interface Board ($8)
9) Pack of LEDs ($6)
10) 180 ohm resistors set ($1 for a 10 pack)
11) 10K ohm resistors ($1 for a 25 pack)
11) Push-button switches ($4 for a pack of 10, or $1 for a pack of 4)

So, that is $77.01 for the cheapest versions of the listed items NOT INCLUDING SHIPPING. Shipping is really why I decided to purchase this pack. Not only did I not have to leave my house to go find these pieces in person, but I only had to pay one shipping charge. In addition, the pieces came in one box on the same day so I could start messing with the Pi as soon as I got it.

Also important is the fact that this kit comes with a pre-loaded new-out-of-box-software (NOOBS) SD card.

Very happy with my purchase of this kit. Great value for what you get. Unlike some other buyers, I did not experience any issues with components being bent or mangled - all my stuff was received in pristine condition insinde a durable cardboard container.

I will say that it would be helpful to know if the RGB LED is common anode or cathode, but I had some known others laying around so not EOTW. There is a brief "General Assembly Guide" included which illustrates the actual physical look and electronic schematic symbols for common components and a color reference card for calculating color-coded AXIAL resistor values. Nothing is mentioned of using the digit system for SMD-type resistors, or of inductors, crystals, etc. It's a good guide for beginner projects reference, but by no means exhaustive.

Also, would have liked to see the T-Cobbler version of the breakout board instead of the inline version included here. If you are going to use the included breadboard, you'll find that you are left with only a single tie point on one side and two on the other and half your rows used when you've plugged this breakout in. Again, not EOTW, as you can use jumper cables to jump to another row from the breakout pin row if you need more tie points. Unfortunately, the spacing is too short to straddle two "stackable" breadboards laid side-to-side, so I would advise buying at least one more small breadboard (if not more and/or larger) so you have some extra rows available if you're going to do anything more than light one or two LEDs. Breadboards are pretty cheap, but would've been nice to not need extras.

The case, cables (power, HDMI, and jumper), and breakout are all of good quality, well-constructed, and sturdy.
