Everything you need and its all good quality. Easy to get setup and running within a few minutes. I was concerned some reviewers complained the 64gig card was mislabeled. I checked this on my win10 pc as soon as my kit arrived and sure enough the sd card does appear to be only a few gigs. Further investigation revealed the cause of this is Win10 cannot read the data already installed on the card because its in Unix and this is what causes the under reporting of the physical size of the card. So the card is just fine the way it is. DO NOT attempt formatting the card in Win10 or you will wipe off the pre-installed operating system required for your new RPI.
Arrived ahead of schedule and the device works perfectly. The kit has everything you need to get started, you just need to attach a keyboard and mouse to set it up. My USB wireless keyboard and mouse worked just fine.
The as card provided was in the wrong format for the Rasberry Pi to read. It was in EXFAT so needed to reformat as into FAT32 before it would work- not good enough when sold as a “kit”! Raspberry Pi itself is great
I didn't like it that there was no instructions or warning about some necessary steps - it is assumed that you have expert help. because I have built many computers, I didn't panic and managed to eventually get it going.
