First time Raspberry Pi user - I'm convinced

Pros: Easy to set up
Inexpensive, but not cheap
Powers USB connected drive

Cons: None, but I should have ordered the B+ (beginner's mistake)

Other Thoughts: I have been using an old Mac mini (2006 version) for the past 7-8 years as a media server, permanently on because Wake-on-Lan on a Mac that age only works with Apple routers. I came to the conclusion that this was crazy so researched a cheap alternative. I thought about a new Mini ($500, that's a 'no'), a NUC ($200-$300 depending on specs), Intel Compute Stick ($150), then decided to try a Pi.

I went in with no great expectations, but thought that at least I would have a Raspberry to play around with if nothing worked. A backup was to install Linux on the mini but it would still be crazy to connect up a full size computer for just my needs.

I found it easy to set up and get Plex Media Server running, a couple of hours from start to finish, most time spent installing Raspbian and Plex Media Server cataloging about 300 movies from an external USB HD

I have a smart TV with a Plex client, and several computers, iPads, and phones, all with Plex clients available. The Raspberry Pi can easily deliver 1080p content to several clients. Caveat - all my content is already H.264 encoded at a maximum of 1080p, so it doesn't need to transcode the video. My TV is a new 4k model but I don't have any 4k content so I can't say whether that will work.

I'm using WiFi (max about 50Mb/s about 6 feet from router) - I'll need to try wired ethernet at some point.

I'm pleased with how this is working - I have other projects in mind that I can use this or another Pi for.

Only one thing to bear in mind, this is the older 'B' model. I didn't know enough when ordering to realize that there's an improved B+ version that will work even better.

Excellent starter package if you just want to compute power, without working with hardware interfaces

Pros: Clear case is nice, OS starts with no issues, more than adequate power even if for devices.

Cons: Case advertised was a cloudy white, but clear white, solid plastic was provided. Not exactly the same as advertised.

Good starter pi set

Pros: Comes with Raspberry Pi 3, case, and microsd card with OS installed. All you need to do is put the pi in the case (no tools required), install sd card and start using the pi.

Cons: Case was different than the one pictured

Other Thoughts: Great choice to get started with Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi 83-16561RK Broadcom BCM2837 64-bit ARMv8 Quad-Core Processor at 1.2 GHz

Pros: Powerful quad core processor @ 1.2 Ghz
Case and 1.5 A 5V power supply included.
several OS options available

Cons: No stable version of Android for these boards ( I knew this before I ordered and only needed Linux for my projects but thought I'd mention it, if you want Android comparability the ASUS SBC or The Odroid Lines are better choices.) Since I didn't need Android anyway I won't take an egg for, it's just meant as a heads up.

Other Thoughts: Powerful little board for the price, I ordered two of them made one into a little retro game/kodi player using retropie and one into a nice little NAS for my hard drives and ordered another 8 TB drive to hook to it, although I would say it's a bit over powered for a NAS server, I think that you should be able to get by with using a Raspberry Pi Zero aside from the limited usb ports (1 compared to 4 ) a single core 1 Ghz CPU should be plenty. I will be adding a browser based dashboard for the NAS in the next couple of days so that I can check on it from any computers browser.

Perfect project computer

Pros: good package deal.
the pre loaded image was really well done.

Cons: adapter could use power switch .

Other Thoughts: got this for a RetroPie build and it works awesome, less buggy than running RPie from Ubuntu on a flash drive on a regular computer.

Pretty Straight Forward

Pros: - good base raspberry pi starter kit
- memory card preloaded w/ OS's.

Cons: - Giant box. (i'm just nit picking here) For such a small device the box it comes in is comical.

Other Thoughts: I ordered this RPi when it went on shell shocker sale. It came with fast shipping as always in a giant box, compared to what was in it, it was mostly open space and air bag filler.
The case that came with it is different than what's pictured. I'm ok with it as the case that came with it is better than the clear plastic case. It came with a black plastic case with removable clear see through top. Has easy access to the memory card and all the expansion slots on the board.
Everything works as normal, and as per other reviews it comes with the small memory card in the larger adapter. Just take the little card out to install in the RPi.
