Top Customer Reviews
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
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. I honestly wouldn't have cared if I had to transfer the disk image myself, BUT for people who aren't comfortable doing that I would recommend getting this set. (It's honestly not hard to load a blank SD card. Just Google the instructions if you want to assemble your own kit. If you're buying a Pi, you are probably already a bit tech-savvy.)
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. This isn't a custom carbon fiber case with Monster cables and a lab-quality switching power supply, but for most non-commercial uses, you should find it adequate. The case fits very well, with a cutout for the GPIO cable to pass through. I wouldn't drop it off a building, but it's sturdy enough to not have to worry about transporting it with you somewhere. The cables seem to be of good quality, and the soldering on the breakout is machine-soldered and consistent.
The SD card I received was an 8Gb Class 6 Micro-SD card in a full-size SD adapter. I had no corruption issues, the NOOBS OS installer functioned properly, and I get decent performance from it (about 19Mb/s sustained reads and 13Mb/s writes, though there is some discussion that the Pi itself may be bottle-necking SD performance). The USB WiFi adapter utilizes an RALink chipset, which is supported in most Pi distros (all available in NOOBS, most from the RPi Hub) and works well for non-commercial use. If you're pentesting, you probably aren't buying your stuff in a kit anyway =)
Keep in mind, the Pi comes configured to use UK settings! To switch displays, press 1,2,3, or 4 during boot-up for different display output options (1,2 are HDMI, 3,4 for composite video (RCA)). Be sure to configure your locale and keyboard settings under the "Advanced" menu in raspi-config (command-line: sudo raspi-config) from the UK defaults. The keyboard defaults to UK and you'll get some interesting results on some extended characters if you don't change it. I suggest seaching google for "raspberry pi raspi-config" and "raspberry pi config.txt" to learn what the configuration options are, how to modify them, and what values are appropriate. This will let you customize your display options like resolution, overscan, and CEC, as well as configure debugging options, GPIO setup, overclocking, and much more.
All in all, a good starter kit for a good price!
