3.0 out of 5 stars An okay kit with a bad case
Reviewed in the United States on March 28, 2018
This a basic starter kit for a raspberry pi 3 B+. It's mostly good but I found a few issues.

First, the good: The kit is neatly packaged and contains all that is described in the product description. Powering on the Pi, with the microSD card installed, results in a functioning Pi with a NOOBS prompt on start (unless you format the card). The power supply, card and card reader all functioned normally with no apparent issues.

The neutral: This kit comes with two heatsinks. One for the CPU and one for the ethernet controller. They have sticky pads on the back and are simple to install. The CPU heatsink's pad is slightly off the heatsink (less than a nanometer), but not enough to dock a star.

Now, the bad: The case is poorly designed and looks like a rehash of the 3's case without accounting that much for the additional PoE pins and the movement of the Ethernet controller. After finally getting the case on (bit of a pain), you will find that the slot for Ethernet controller makes it where the heatsink cannot be installed properly. The controller was moved closer toward the ethernet port, but the case just widens the slot. The chip sits just inside the slot and is slightly overlapped by the surrounding plastic. This makes installing the heatsink a bit difficult and prevents it from fully sitting on the chip. The PoE pins slot is even worse. The slot gives more space on the GPIO side of the pins, but overlaps them on the USB port side. This will make using the PoE pins a little more difficult or impossible. Another issue includes the etching for the PWR and ACT lights being on the wrong side. The case has two holes cut on each side of the Display slot for the PWR and ACT LEDs. The LEDs on the Pi are on the microUSB side of the board, but the etching labelling the holes is on the GPIO side. One additional minor issue is that the hole for the CPU doesn't have the CPU in the center (it's slightly to the side), but that's not a big deal. Additionally, the microSD card reader doesn't let the card sit in flush. The card sticks out a little on the notched side. It doesn't affect the usability, but it is a questionable design choice.

To summarize:
- Good:
* Neatly packed
* Comes with all listed parts
* Everything works

- Neutral:
* Heatsink sticky pad is a bit off, but no big deal

-Bad:
* Case doesn't account for PoE pins
* Case doesn't account for movement of Ethernet controller
* Etching for PWR and ACT labels on the wrong side
* microSD card sits crooked in reader

This kit saves you a little time, so it can be worth it to buy for new users. Toss the case and get more open design option that allows for the heatsink to be installed and the PoE option to be more easily used.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easiest computer build and install I've ever done.
Reviewed in the United States on April 17, 2018
System was very easy to get up and running. Parts were individually packaged inside an outer box, which kept them from getting scuffed up in shipping. Many of the parts were marked with obvious warning stickers that directly addressed some easy mistake that could set you back, and that's pretty handy if you're new to all of this.

The kit comes with the software installed on the little memory card, so you can get up and running without internet, but if you're at the "select what operating system you want to install" screen and connect to an internet-enabled network (which is automatic and smooth), the screen automatically updates with the other operating systems and current versions without further tinkering.

Looking at this kit as a computer build, I would say this was the easiest, and least confusing I've ever done. It feels silly to say that about a computer like this, but I'd say this 'build' was less troublesome than taking a ready-to-use laptop or HTPC out of the box and getting them to do the things I want them to do. The Windows-like operating system loads fast and doesn't have dozens of frustrating, bundled applications vying for additional pay, needing to be uninstalled and resisting deinstallation.

Most wonderful of all was that the specific things I needed to figure out (installing and self-starting Synergy and writing a temperature-checking script) are well covered by abundant and clear-cut community web pages.

I was a little confused by the thumbdrive/SDcard adapter, thinking that I would need it for making a boot image or something. As it turns out, the adapter isn't needed for anything in this kit and I'm not sure why it was included. I previously had to put the little SD cards into a larger version (adapter) and then stick it in my camera, connected to a computer via USB, so I'm certainly not going to complain about the upgrade. Of course, if I wanted more kits for future projects, having a bunch of these adapters laying around would be somewhat of a nuisance.

As for the performance, I bought this kit to simply stream a particular 24/7 stock trading network to a computer monitor. Sadly, I was hoping to view the stream at full 1080p, and this kit can only stream at 480p without constantly pausing. There could be various causes, but none of them are external to the device. Also, it seems to generate a bit of heat. I don't know if it's getting hot enough to cause failure, but I opted to cut a square hole in the lid, affix a 40mm PC fan with hot glue, and am reading temps of 35.4c GPU and 35c CPU while streaming 480p full screen now.

All in all, I'd say that this is an excellent, even ideal, kit to do a minor computer task or as a bottom-dollar first computer that will help someone get familiar with Linux-like operating systems, which pretty much run the world.

4.0 out of 5 stars Case coverage for heat sinks
Reviewed in Canada on January 25, 2019
Case is easy to assemble, I don't like the cut out for the highlighted chip in the picture. Part of the chip is underneath the plastic, so the heatsink won't cover the entire chip, and the heatsink will be touching the edges of the plastic.

This is a good starter package which I got for a good deal on Amazon. It comes with all cables, plus instructions, GPIO pin layout cheat sheet, SD card and reader.

I like the fact that the USB on/off switch has a power LED on it to indicate it has been powered on, unlike other USB switches I have purchased.

One minor issue I have is with the case for the Pi. It may be tricky to assemble but the online video specified in the instructions does help.

One of the heat sinks though has to be positioned properly for it to fit in the case but it may still be touching the plastic case.

Overall it’s a good package from CanaKit, I have purchased Pi’s before from them and have been pleased.
