    Make sure you order the right one

    Overall: 3.5 out of 5

    I ordered this because it was suggested along with my Raspberry Pi™ 2 Model B. The name of the product is "8Gb NOOBS Rasberry Pi™ Operating System" (sic). I got it just to make the process more foolproof. Unfortunately, you know what they say about foolproof.... When I tried to boot it in my shiny new computer, it didn't go past the color screen. It was only when I looked at the actual product page to review it that I noticed that the page says that it's not compatible with my RPi2B. No biggie -- when it didn't boot, I simply re-imaged it with the easily available NOOBS from the net and got on my way. It was just a shock when my computer didn't boot the first time. I'm knocking off a star because the product name really should indicate more specifically what version it is intended for. It's kind of understandable that the packaging didn't say it was only for the current model, because how would the original packager know that a new one was coming out? However, the product name could very well have been changed on the web site to make that very clear after the later one came out. In any event, I seem to have lost it already -- it's so small! Oh, well, easy come, easy go. It'll probably turn up when I clean my desk. If it's anything like the one I downloaded and installed myself, I'm sure it's just fine for its intended purpose.
