Product Description

Size: Raspberry Pi Ultimate Kit (Model B+) | Color: Premium Clear 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.

Color Name: Clear CaseSize Name: Raspberry Pi Basic Kit 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:

Color Name: Premium Clear CaseSize Name: Raspberry Pi Ultimate Kit (Model B+) Verified Purchase
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.

Color Name: Black CaseSize Name: Raspberry Pi Starter Kit (Model B+)
I was given this kit as a gift, but when I got it and connected it to my TV nothing happened. It would not boot and displayed nothing on the screen - it seemed dead.

It did not come with a "General Assembly Guide" as they claimed, so I had to do some reading about the Raspberry Pi online.

The problem was that it came with an 4GB SD card that is supposed to contain the operating system as stated: "4GB SD Card pre-loaded with Raspbian "wheezy"

However, the SD card was brand new in its package and contained nothing. It was completely blank, so the Raspberry Pi sits there and does nothing.

This is likely going to cause a lot of frustrated people to return this kit thinking they have a dead Raspberry Pi.

I had to download the OS from the Raspberry Pi website, and load it onto the SD card myself. I was lucky that that I had a laptop with an SD Card reader. After all that, it did boot and it does work now.

The Raspberry Pi is a tiny little computer and its cool to get it working, but this 'kit' does not give you what it claims it will.

You're better off buying the parts yourself.

It looks like I'm in the minority here but I'm more than happy with this deal. I purchased it PRIME for $90 with free 2 day shipping just for reference.

Everything came very well packaged and is much higher quality than I expected. The cables appear to be very high quality and the case is great. Unlike another reviewer mentioned my SD card came ready to go so I had it up and running in about a half hour which includes rummaging around for a mouse and keyboard.

I paid maybe $10 more than I would have from buying a similar kit from one of the places that sells just the Pi for $35. They all seem to charge around $15 shipping on top of the price so to get it in 2 days to me was well worth it.

That being said you don't really need a case and most if us have power supplies, HDMI cables and SD cards lying around. I know I have enough in my drawers to get a few of these running without cases. I preferred to go with a starter kit for convenience and am glad I did. If I decide to get anymore then I'm sure I'll just get the Pi itself and match up what I have lying around.

Yes it's a bit over priced but it's also the fastest and easiest way to get started that I could find.
