An exclusive Basic Kit from CanaKit that includes the fastest model of the Raspberry Pi family - The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B.
The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B is the third generation Raspberry Pi and 10x faster than the first generation Raspberry Pi. Additionally, it incorporates built-in WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity.
To take full advantage of the improved power management on the Raspberry Pi 3 and provide even support for even more powerful devices on the USB ports, a 2.5A adapter is recommended. The included power supply in this kit incorporates a noise filter to provide the highest stability and comes with a 5-foot cable. This power supply can power the Raspberry Pi 3 and other USB accessories (such as most portable hard drives) without requiring an external powered USB hub.
The kit also includes a premium quality case specially designed for the Raspberry Pi 3.

It also runs Kodi flawlessly. So in addition to having all my favorite old school games, I can watch streaming movies and tv with Kodi and even control it with my cell phone.
I purchased this one with the case just because I wasn't sure that the 3D printed case I made was going to fit. 3D case fit like a glove, so if you have access to a 3D printer, there are hundreds of different case designs out on the internet that you can put together and save yourself about 10 bucks and add some style to this little device.
To sum it up, for the cost of this, plus an sd card of whatever size you want, you get every game system from 1970 to around 1998 and Kodi which can stream Youtube, Amazon, Netflix and anything else you can find an app to stream. I'd say in total, this sub $100.00 purchase is worth every bit of over $1000.00 worth of entertainment equipment.
The board is standard, the heatsinks are fine, and the power supply works. Nothing exciting there.
But the case? I'm very happy with the case. The other ones I've had didn't have good GPIO access. One case has the pins always exposed, which I didn't like. And the other kept them always covered, with a small slot to feed a ribbon cable through. I wasn't thrilled with that either.
This one, however, has the best of both worlds - an outer cover covers the GPIO pins but is easily removable for access. And when it's off, the rest of the board is still covered by another piece of plastic. I'm quite happy.
Getting the board in the case was a little tricky, since it's a tight fit, but that's typical for raspberry cases, so nothing out of the ordinary. I highly recommend it.
The only down-side I see to this kit is the case. The top does not close completely for air circulation, but it also does not "snap" in the "closed" position so the top can come off far too easily. But, now that I have had it for a while I realize that you really don't touch it much so this seems less of a concern than when I first set it up.
This is a bit difficult to review since the "product" here is the CanaKit and not the Raspberry Pi itself which clearly deserves 8 stars on a 5-star scale. If Linux worked this smoothly on all other platforms it would have a far larger audience than it does today. My main reason for getting this unit was that I needed to replaced a failed print server and the two units I tried for replacements failed miserably as well. My Pi has been a rock-solid print server since the day I loaded it up. And, what a kick being able to use it as a full-fledged LAMP server as well. This whole experience has been way beyond my expectations. (Just be aware that the current Raspbian release is Jessie, so only use web articles that specifically reference Jessie in their instructions. Many articles reference older releases and there have been definite changes to Jessie. This is especially true for setting a static IP address for the Pi.)
But again, I highly recommend the CanaKit as a convenient well priced way to get your first (or replacement) Pi units.
