There are many different kits on Amazon and went with this kit for several reasons:
-It's made by the company themselves (they have to know what they are doing, right?)
-It has all the basic parts I needed at a great price point*
-It has NOOBS (New Out Of Box Software) pre-installed on the SD card to make the start up process easy for beginners
Now, what you use your Pi3 for is what you will need to consider for your needs. The CPU for the Pi3 does run hot and will restrict its performance by throttling itself, making it sluggish. The case this kit comes with does not have good airflow and will heat this guy up. Depending on what you use with it, it will throttle itself. I currently use my Pi3 in conjunction with Parsec to host a cloud gaming PC in my apartment. As a result, this guy gets put through the ringer, and I bought a different a different case that came with heat sinks and an active fan. My Pi3 runs cool and performs incredibly well for what I need it to.
-This has onboard WiFi but it is SLOW. If you want fast wireless, use a wireless card. I have mine with a wired connection and it works fantastic.
-I tried both raspbian, raspbian lite, and retropi on this guy. Full raspbian, a linux based OS, needs active cooling to perform on par with other consumer grade products. You will notice the difference on difficult web pages and general snappiness.
Overall, I am extremely happy with my purchase and highly recommend it. It packs a lot of power for such a little package, permitting on how cool you keep your unit. Your Pi3 can be a wonderful project that can do anything you put your mind and imagination towards.
*PLEASE NOTE: you will need an HDMI cord and monitor, mouse, and keyboard to get this guy up and running
There are reviews for an openvpn server on raspbain os, but no other VPN. I wanted a challenge. Here is the results. Note I am working out bugs at the end, mostly from client apps. The person this was for had Android, so I will mention how to setup an Android client, but in regards to iPhone or other client endpoints, refer to the VPN "algo" website.
1. I uninstalled Rapsbian OS by resetting the SD card. Then Ubuntu Server, the version for the Raspberry Pi 3, this model, was installed.
2. Ubuntu Server was setup, configured, and ssh'd into through the IP from the router.
3. Necessary components for Algo VPN, a VPN that enables a Ikev2 VPS, were installed. Required codes to run through terminal can be found on Algo's website.
4. Algo was then installed.
5. Strongswan, the client app for Android, was setup. You can use the HTML helper to set it up on Android plus the certificate file.
6. VPS was tested and ran on Android using Strongswan, and worked.
These steps turned the Raspberry Pi 3 the seller is selling into your personal Ikev2 VPS.
-you don't have to pay for anymore VPN subscriptions
-the steps above set it up through Ethernet, even though the Raspberry pi 3 is wifi capable. Even though this is ignoring a feature, it ensures a stable connection. Put under control in case someone prefers wifi connection.
Overall, great little mini PC the pi 3 is. With the ability to run Ubuntu Server, and it's small size, the Raspberry Pi 3 has the potential to turn a small empty space into a personal server zone using small raspberry pi 3.
It comes with:
*4 USB ports
*16GB micro SD card with adapter
*Power Supply Cable
*Pi Model B Circuit board
*Case for the Pi
*Official Raspberry Pi logo engraved/printed on everything
You may want to purchase:
*a USB SD Card reader (if you plan on connecting the SD card to your computer if there is no SD slot)
I bought 2 of these and they are both working great. When you initially start up it has pre-loaded a NOOBS system to allow you to setup and install some linux systems. If you're wanting to set up RetroPie I would recommend NOT using the NOOBS system to install Raspbian. I would instead format the SD card and pre-load it with the RetroPie img file. On one of my Pi's I installed Raspbian and then RetroPie on top of it. I had nothing but problems and issues with controllers and config files. On the other Pi I formatted the SD card and installed the img file and everything worked great. So I reformatted the original Pi and used the RetroPie img on it and it's working perfect now as well. This is a solid kit with very durably made parts, and it looks pretty sleek as well with the nice white and pinkish red.
The package contains Raspberry Pi, Case, Adapter and SD card with OS so you can start without any additional efforts.
Case has red and white colors. In looks very attractive. Awesome toy!
My box was damaged when arrived, but inernals are safe.
