If you are considering streaming Youtube at 1080p on a Pi3, you can forget about it. 720p was just about achievable, but I wouldn't have called it steady.
Also, Chromium which is included with Raspbian, doesn't support Netflix as standard (gives an error for Widevine plugin). I tried a number of ways to resolve this, there are numerous suggestions online, but couldn't get it working. By this stage I was losing hope for the Pi3 to be my streaming media player anyway.
Having said all that though, the next option for me was to use the Pi3 as a retro gaming console, and in this regard it is excellent. Pre-installed RetroPie image, out of the box support for my wireless X-Box pads, and plays games up to PSX/N64/Dreamcast flawlessly (with a little overclocking and tinkering). I was up and running with a great retro game library in no time. It's even quite portable!
There's a ton of other things that the Pi is great at, and which I could envisage doing with it, so it still get's a high score and recommendation, even if it did disappoint me as an online video player.
It was all new to me as I have never used anything like it before but all went so smoothly.
I had to install Retropie twice as the first time it didn't work and I tried and tried and tried to get it going but was struggling.
I then checked my memory card and flash drive I used and the memory card was not good enough so I used a bigger and faster one and it was fine.
I have now got a little gaming device and can play all the games from yesteryear with the roms from certain sites.
I was over the moon to see I could play the Sega Master System games and really brings back memories of my kids playing them in the 80's and that is if they could get daddy off of it lol.
I installed Raspbian when I first had it, Raspbian is a version of Linux built specifically for the Raspberry Pi and it is fantastic.
Rather much like windows which is what I have always used but easy enough to get the hang of. I was amazed at the speed really for such a tiny thing and only 5 volts power supply.
This was a good kit and I can see it is not a Chinese rip off as the power supply is not cheap and the case is so easy to snap together. Can easily be taken to bits and put together again over and over and no ill effects. I have ordered heat sinks for it but I don't think it will be necessary it was just for precaution.
I fully recommend this to anyone but now back to outrun.
I got a heatsink just to make sure it don't get hot inside the cupboard. Do you really need a heaksink, not really, the Pi 3 work without a heatsink fine. I just got it just in case and it only cost me around £4.This is what i got:
Aukru New 3pcs Heatsink for Raspberry Pi 3 Model B / Pi 2 Model B (1x Copper & 2x Aluminum)
The case fit perfectly and the 16GB scandisk mircoSD in a nice speed.
Have fun withn it, I know I did.
This starter kit is a great bundle. The official case may be a bit boring but it's sturdy and well made (the white is way cooler than the black, I have both)
The official charger is rated 5.1V and 2.5A so you get good solid performance from the Pi.
The SD card however isn't anything amazing. On both orders I received an Integral Class 10 16GB, it does the job nicely and I haven't noticed any performance problems but I'm not sure how much I trust it. If you're buying this for RetroPie or any other use whereby you expect the Pi to remain in use for long periods of time, I'd recommend creating a backup image just to be sure and grabbing a few extra cards.
All in all great device, great price and this kit is the ideal way to get started.
