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!
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. I did buy a book (kindle) but that is because I want to use this to build a motorized robot device with a camera. But now I thinking of using this in my classes to teach ( I am a college professor) python programming, networking, and basic IO computer controls and functions.
If you like playing with computers or maybe just want to try out Linux this is a great item to get.
I figure the HDMI, Case, Console Cable, SD card, and Wifi adapter each run ~$10 followed by the breadboard and misc cables which is about another ~$15 which adds up to roughly $100 or so bucks if bought separately. Not a bad deal for a full fledged computer!
