The new Raspberry Pi 3 Model B is an amazing piece of hardware but you need a few parts to get it going. The Pi 3 has upgraded power management that enables it to power hungry USB gadgets. Of course, to put out more power means you need to put in more power. Fortunately, this kit includes a 5VDC 2.4A USB power supply that we spent months testing to ensure your new Pi runs happily.

Additionally, this kit includes a 16GB microSD card that's pre-loaded with the NOOBS operating system a translucent enclosure, and a quick-start guide. All you need to do is bring your own HDMI cable, monitor and USB mouse and keyboard to the party to get up and running.

Includes:

  • 1 x Raspberry Pi 3 Model B
  • 1 x 16GB microSD card w/adapter pre-loaded with the NOOBS image
  • 1 x Enclosure
  • 1 x 5.25VDC 2.4A USB Power Supply
  • 1 x Quick Start Guide with downloadable manuals

    Great bundle!

    Overall: 5 out of 5
    Value:
    Quality:

    I ordered this bundle as a one-stop solution for trying out the Raspberry Pi since I already had a wireless keyboard/mouse. I'm impressed with the capability of such a small device and am thinking of all the things I can use it (and probably a couple of of more) for.

    MCM shipped it quickly and it was up and running just a few minutes after I received it. Two items were different from the description - The case I received was black, not translucent, and the microSD card just booted directly into Raspbian, it didn't have the NOOBS menu and alternative OSes on it. Neither thing is a big deal. The color of the case doesn't matter and Raspbian works great. If I want to try another OS I can download a NOOBs image for free.

    If you want an easy start to the Raspberry Pi world, I recommend this bundle.

    Good product: everything needed to start playing w/ Raspberry Pi 3

    This is a good package w/ all the needed items to get started. Unfortunately like others the pre-loaded Noobs micro SD card did NOT boot. The micro SD is very fragile and broke in two before I could try to re-load it. Got a new micro SD, loaded it from the web and the Pi 3 worked great.

    Impressed!

    Shipping was quick, everything included was of high quality and fit well together, etc. Only reason for four-stars quality is that the system wouldn't boot with the included memory card, hopefully I will be able to format myself. I bought this kit for the purposes of RetroPie and I already had a known-working Micro SD card, so honestly that isn't a deal breaker. For RetroPie, I can't recommend this kit highly enough!

    Canadians Don't Buy!!

    Quality:

    Product is awesome and no complaints but if you are a Canadian the value is horrible! Cost me $120 Cdn with shipping and took almost 2 weeks arrive.

    Shipping is not listed at time of purchase and tagged on after the order is fulfilled. I never thought I'd pay the same price as the product basically for shipping.

    Anyhow I love the product but next time thinking of buying from a Canadian site/seller.
