Starting in the world of the internet of things is really quite interesting but it becomes a real pain when you are pure virgin about any micro-controller devices. We took our time with baby steps to find out the best Raspberry Pi 3 Kit from amazon.

We are reviewing the Virlos Kit for today to keep it simple.

Vilros Raspberry Pi 3 Kit comes in a blue-white cardboard box. It also contains a pi model B with a transparent plastic case. The case is not really extraordinary but it’s not bad, which is pretty neat.

The Raspberry Pi 3 kit contains a 2.0A power supply, a 150mbps 802.11n USB WiFi adapter, and an HDMI cable. It also contains a breadboard, GPIO breakout connector, a variety of LEDs and components. And a 208-page manual!

Right from the start, the Vilros guide (not included in this kit now as recently found out,you can buy it separately) talks about what you can do with the Raspberry Pi as well as a chart showing what it is equipped with. and walks you through the whole pi setup, it has few extra modules too just like building a Media Center out of the Raspberry Pi. The guide walks the reader through installing XBMC (recently renamed “Kodi”)

The Vilros Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Ultimate kit ($85) is by far the best, most well-rounded kit of the bunch. It included a Model B+ Raspberry Pi, an 8GB microSD card, a 2.0A power supply, a 802.11n USB wifi connector, electronic components, HDMI cable,that was about both learning and fun!
