The package arrived fine. All pieces were included. Very nice kit for anyone starting out with Raspberry Pi. A few notes though:

o The SD card is really 4GB, even though Windows will only show 1GB. Ignore that. The included OS takes up about half the card, leaving about 2GB free once booted.

o The power supply is underpowered and appeared to cause problems during booting, which I thought were SD card related, but weren't. Since the included power cable is USB, I replaced the supply with a much better one and this cleared up the booting issues.

o After installing a LAMP stack, I ran out of space on the original card, so I went ahead and bought a 8GB card and ended up with about 4GB free after LAMP. I also d/led and installed the latest version of Rasbian on this card.

o The included WiFi worked fine, after adding the SSID and passwd, (just google raspberry pi wifi).

o My kit contained no instructions at all. Would have been nice to add a one page Getting Started, but googling raspberry pi setup got me thru the initial stuff.

You can piece together all the items in this kit, but the resulting cost, if you have to buy separately, ends up about the same or more unless you already have some of the cables and such.

UPDATE: The company contacted me offering to replace the power supply for free, saying that they did discover a bad batch. Excellent customer service!

Amazing little board!

Background
The Raspberry Pi is a "fit in your shirt pocket" linux box! Brilliantly designed to meet a simple goal: putting open technology within affordable global reach. There are many Pi enthusiasts who use this inexpensive platform to build some pretty cool projects including home automation, running media centers for videos/music, robotics. Just search under raspberry pi projects on the web and prepared to be amazed. After that, let your imagination run wild!

To clarify, this is the Model B (latest) version of Raspberry Pi with 512MB. The one I received from this seller was made in the UK, not China. Furthermore, the cat /proc/cpuinfo command confirms this as revision '000e'. These are all the versions released thus far, and their manufacturer: (Note that some Model B's that only have 256MB)

'0002' => 'Model B Revision 1.0',
'0003' => 'Model B Revision 1.0 + Fuses mod and D14 removed',
'0004' => 'Model B Revision 2.0 256MB', (Sony)
'0005' => 'Model B Revision 2.0 256MB', (Qisda)
'0006' => 'Model B Revision 2.0 256MB', (Egoman)
'0007' => 'Model A Revision 2.0 256MB', (Egoman)
'0008' => 'Model A Revision 2.0 256MB', (Sony)
'0009' => 'Model A Revision 2.0 256MB', (Qisda)
'000d' => 'Model B Revision 2.0 512MB', (Egoman)
'000e' => 'Model B Revision 2.0 512MB', (Sony)
'000f' => 'Model B Revision 2.0 512MB', (Qisda)

Setup
I purchased the kit that includes the board, clear case and wifi adapter. (EDIT 1/25/2014: It looks as if the kit I purchased is no longer available, rather an expanded 11 piece kit is offered with many accessories.) I used an old cell phone charger, and 4GB SD card (the bare minimum) that I already had lying around.

The RPI set up was very easy following the instructions in the book "Sams Teach Yourself Python Programming for Raspberry Pi in 24 hours". This kit was probably overkill, but I wanted the options for my daughter. I only wish someone somewhere had mentioned that it's very easy to set up VNC server on the RPI so that you don't need any peripherals. I wouldn't have spent the extra money on the external powered USB hub. If you have an HDMI TV and USB keyboard, you can just use that for the initial configuration, then after setting up wifi and the VNC Server on the RPI, just use any other laptop you have to access it remotely. As a UNIX person I should have guessed it would be easy to set up VNC Server, but it just didn't occur to me when I was buying things. Another tip: I had to search and search to find out how to select a locale in the raspi-config utility. Use the space bar to select one from the list. FYI: VNC server set up instructions: [...]

The hardware in this package is as advertised and is complete. The SD card, on the other hand is corrupt. You will have to either download the NOOBS software from Raspberry Pi website and install it on another card or buy a pre-loaded one that is not corrupt. For a first time user this is a big headache!!! The system will not boot, boot intermittently, show an error message part way through boot, or just be a blank screen.

Great item to use for projects or just to play around with. These were developed in UK for education and being a IT professor I could not resist trying one out. It connected and booted up amazingly easy.

Things you might want to know:
It uses Linux as the OS. The OS comes with it and is on a SD card. It uses NOOS which actually has several versions of Linux OS that you can try out. At boot just hold down the shift key and you can install a different OS from the list. There are also other Linux OS's that you can find on the web.

Uses HDMI connection to Monitor. I am running mine off a 24 Inch LCD with no problem. If you only have a DVI port you will need to my an DVI to HDMI adapter.

Uses USB keyboard and mouse. I connected a wireless Logitech K400r with the built in touch pad and it recognized it without problem.

Kit comes with wireless network adapter, did not need to use supplied drivers, recognized by system automatically but you do have to set it up using the provided Linux app. that comes with the OS.

When placing the board into the case you have to angle it in for there are fit points that go on top of board on one side. These are used to hold in the board to the base. I only comment on this because of some reviews saying the case doesn't fit.

You can overclock it. Use the config file you can overclock the CPU to higher rates. Stock is at 700 MHz. I got mine running at 900 MHz without problems but took it back down to 800MHz since that is all that is really needed for this system and it runs very cool at that setting. Modding a small fan I am sure I could take it up to over 1 GHz.

There are lots of free books, help, information, and projects on the web.
