Assembly of the Retropie is so easy! Just put the motherboard inside the clear case and it snaps shut. Download Retropie from their website, extract the program from the Zip Folder, and write it onto a Micro SD Card using win32diskimager (a free, easy to find program). Then just insert that Micro SD Card in the Raspberry Pi and turn it on. After it boots up, plug any empty flash drive into the Raspberry Pi, and it'll create all the necessary folders for roms. Then remove the flash drive when its light stops flashing and use your PC to put the right roms into the right folders, then plug that flash drive back into the Raspberry Pi. It'll copy over all the roms, so you won't need the flash drive anymore. And that's it! Just configure your controller and your done! Its so easy even a dummy like me could do it! I mostly use it for 2D games and they all run and look great in HD!
The Pi fits into the case nicely. For mounting the heatsinks I'd suggest mounting the Pi into the base of the case first leaving the lid off, you now are able to use the underside of the plastic case when pressing the heatsinks into place without touching the board with your fingers. The case top can be fiddly to align correctly, I found starting at the ethernet port corner first results in a quicker fit.
When you price the Pi, plus case and power supply separately the value of this kit becomes apparent.
The only thing the case lacks is a way to power the Pi on or off. Pulling the power cable out and plugging back in just to power the unit on isn't ideal. If your Pi will never be turned off then this isn't an issue.
Getting the Raspbian software onto an SD Card is really simple and the Pi boots up first time and you are off to the races.
I turned this kit into a Google Cloud Printer Server to allow me to print to my USB Epson Stylus 88+ Ink Jet Printer from any computer anywhere. About half the cost of a lantronix print server and they don't even support my printer! The unit only uses 2 watts; 1/100th of what my desktop computer uses. I use chromebooks a lot so my windows desktop was only being turned on to print; I don't need to do that anymore!!! Using the CUPS print driver I can monitor print jobs, clean heads and align print heads all from a web browser to access the Raspberry Pi. The need to turn the WIndows computer on has been reduced to almost nil.
I have three of these: one is a media center, the other a media server, and the last one runs a network-wide ad blocker.
Media Center: I had an old WDTV box, which was the most versatile (and legal) set-top box one could buy, but I lost it in a power surge. That thing was a beast - it would play every file format and codec I could throw at it (what is now called "Direct Play"). All my DVDs and Blu-rays are backed up to a NAS in their uncompressed, original codecs (in the "matroska" MKV container format), and all my music is backed up to the NAS in lossless FLAC, and in some rare occasions the compressed .ogg format. However, I learned that buying a Pi 3 and putting OSMC on it would enable me to continue to function the same way, so I put OSMC on it, and it plays everything on my NAS in its original, uncompressed quality just fine. No more clunky BR/DVD player to bother with. And this thing is so small, I actually mounted it to the back of the TV (I can control it via CEC using my TV remote control, or the Kodi remote app from my phone) - out of sight! So that's the media center side of it. (For this to work, I had to enable DLNA in my NAS settings, and I use the NFS file sharing protocol, which seems to be the most universally accepted for media scraping).
Media Server: I do have a TV that uses a Roku for streaming video like Amazon Prime, and the Roku is extremely finicky about file codecs and formats, so when I tried to direct play my local files off my NAS, it wouldn't play most of what I have. So instead of setting up another OSMC device and teaching everyone I live with how to switch over to a new device, etc. instead I opted to install a Plex Media Server at my home network switch so that I could transcode the NAS files prior to pushing them out across the network for the Roku to see. So I installed a "headless" Plex media server on one of these little devices, stuck it at the home run drop where my home network switch is located, and for home video viewing, just installed the Plex channel on the Roku and it plays everything on the NAS without any issues. And Plex's versatility also makes it easier to play my NAS backups on other devices like tablets and what not (Plex does have to compress the files, however, so they're not lossless, which probably doesn't matter for most users, who aren't using studio-quality components).
Network-wide Ad blocker: what a real life saver this thing is. Just install Raspberry Pi-Hole on one of these, set it on your network (follow detailed instructions online - DHCP router settings are crucial here), and no more irritating ads (so long as you're on your network - if you leave home, obviously it quits working). Those little ads in the middle of pages that know what you've been shopping for... GONE. Irritating full-page advertisements for idiotic stuff that you'll never buy anyway... GONE. It even handles most of what YouTube throws at you. Just make sure you set it to auto-update and you're golden. And it may be psychosomatic, but I think my browsing speed has increased slightly after doing this.
Anyway, there are a zillion other things you can do with these things besides games.
