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.

My Husband and I purchased this kit to introduce our son into the world of engineering and electronics.
My seven year old son was very eager and caught on quickly to the steps on creating a circuitry of resisters and LED.
My husband decided to go to a google site to build a virtual circuit and test it before working with real electricity and found that the transition from virtual to reality was very natural for online savvy kids like ours. Now, with the tool set from the CanaKit Raspberry Pi 2, he is able to wire and program simple circuitry on his own.
Additionally, He's working with the provided software that came in the form of a micro sd card; Scratch, Python games and his favorite game that we downloaded called Minecraft Pi via the included wifi adapter. Overall, He is learning and will continue to learn and Explore.
As a bonus, My husband has been learning how to code languages that he yearned to do while he was in college but was unable to do to his major now he feels and looks like the geek he always wanted to be. lol

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.

Pros:

It works really well. I've had it running for days at a time and remained logged in in a shell on my desktop via a static IP on my wifi network, no glitches at all. Display looks good, seems very snappy from the command line (which is how I am using it: headless.) Runs cool; I like that. The NOOBS installer was present the supplied card, and OS install (Raspbian) and configuration went fine. I gave the minimum memory to the GPU as I didn't intend to use the GUI (although I did try it later, and it worked anyway.) The Pi worked first time with my random keyboard and mouse, and also with my 60" LG HD display. The breadboard and jumpers and connection to the pi are very good quality, although the breadboard itself is very small. The case is a black hunk of meh and was of no use to me as I had things to connect. Wifi dongle works fine (and that's how I'm using it now that it's set up: headless, and wireless.) Power supply is awesome -- I've got it running the Pi, the Pi Face, and a SainSmart dual-relay board.

Delightful discoveries:

Midnight Commander, the *very* most handy thing ever for casual and up *nix shell usability, is exactly this easy to obtain...

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mc

...awwwwwwesome. :)

Another: I wrote a fairly serious raytracer as a component of a commercial package some years back, and I created a stand-alone console version derived from it, source code in c. I moved the source (about one megabyte -- it's very feature-rich) over using midnight commander, typed make, and shortly thereafter, was the proud owner of a fully working copy of my raytracer on the Pi. I traced some of the tougher scenes, and they came out perfect.
