5.0 out of 5 stars Fast track your Pi!
If short of time buying this card for a few quid with the tuned cut down linux distro for your Raspberry Pi pre loaded and configured is a great way to get up and running and started on your Pi. Worked perfectly first time. Remember to back it up in case you need to flash the card or make a copy!

3.0 out of 5 stars It's Okay ...
Well.. Its a very slow card, i dont recommend it for speed.
The card came as promised with a working raspberry pi image. I had to resize the image with the provided tools. Would have been a nice touch if that was done before i received it.

You might as well just buy a blank card and make your own image, save your cash. I had to reimage mine in the end...

The vendor delivered as promised tho, so no flies on them !

3.0 out of 5 stars okay except not as in picture - and won't work with a Model B+, 27 Sept. 2014

This is okay - however it is a bit deceptive.

The card I received was not a raspberry branded one like in the picture. It was a full size card.

I have purchased one before (that looked like the one in the picture) and it was a micro sd card with an SD adapter.

Both the one I recieved here and the previous one will work in a raspberry pi - model B.

HOWEVER - Only the micro one will work in a raspberry pi model b+

I was under the impression what I was buying was the one it the picture - and didn't think too much about it.

So in summary

Perfect for the earlier pi version B
Won't work on the B+ one.

Doesn't have the branding on the picture - looks like a standard SD card.

1.0 out of 5 stars SD cards fail to boot!, 31 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: For Raspberry Pi - 8GB branded SDHC SD Card preloaded with latest Raspbian "wheezy" Linux operating system & partitioned to use full memory card
I purchased 10 of these cards. But when I tried to use them all I saw was the error:

Error resizing existing FAT partition WARNING: you are attempting to use /usr/sbin/parted to operate on (resize) a file system.

I tried this for 3 of the cards in at least 3 different Pis and the result was always the same! The solution, it seems, is to reformat the card but the whole, sole purpose of purchasing this card was that the OS came pre-installed! Not good, really, really not good!

Even though I could have made one myself the cost of this was totally worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars In fact, you actually get a noobs partition thrown in too, 3 May 2014

When you plug this in and power up the Pi, you are given the option to select between different distributions of Linux which work on the Pi. This means there is rought 1.2GB of space on the card which is reserved for storage of these distributions, so bear that in mind if you want to use the card for serious storage. Once installing a distribution. I cloned the partitions on to a number of 4GB cards because I do not need a lot of storage, and they all work well, saving the effort of having to re-run the installation for each new Pi.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great!, 25 April 2014
This review is from: For Raspberry Pi - 8GB branded SDHC SD Card preloaded with latest Raspbian "wheezy" Linux operating system & partitioned to use full memory card
Card does exactly what it needs to!

It had NOOBs preinstalled on it, making it so much easier to set up.

Only con is that the card looked different to the one in the picture, I liked the idea of the little Raspberry Pi logo on it, not a big deal but it was a nice touch.

This is a good bit of kit, but it doesn't come with the New Out Of Box Software, which is needed for the Raspberry Pi to work.
