    I’ve been playing with my media center kit for a couple weeks now and even though it is living up to my expectations I am just scratching the surface of it’s capabilities. It was intended to replace a bulky standalone home theater PC which it has masterly. It connected with my LAN seamlessly with it’s on-board wi-fi and downloading add-ons has been fun. I no longer need PC hard drive for downloading entertainment and storing for later viewing. The Kodi software appeared confusing at first but then found it more user friendly than Win 10. I am also finding several remote control options beginning with the Ri mini keyboard (included), wireless mouse, Sylvania TV remote and android phone apk. I can still watch media off a flash drive through one of it’s four USB ports. I am pleased with the video and audio quality which connects via HDMI to the TV, but as a novice user I can see there are more tweaks I can do with it. I plan on doing our other TV and another one for when we travel. Set up is easy and there are many tutorials out there to help. So the funky steam-punk home theater PC is gone replaced with this tiny Raspberry Pi – 3B that hides behind the TV. Very Happy. Thanks buyapi.ca.

    Bought this kit as my first foray in to the Pi scene, I’ve wanted one since day one and I finally pulled the trigger on the “Pi3 Media Center Kit Plus” as my wife and I ‘cut the cord’ and ditched our Telus TV box in favor of building a Pi media center/retro game console.

    The price is more than fair, taxes in, this cost me $135CAD shipped to the interior of BC, Canada. All the components were packaged well and with care, what I received was exactly what was advertised and everything was in mint condition after shipping.

    The Pi case is well made, sturdy, and made the installation of the Pi itself as easy as, insert side of board in to tabs, lay flat, and click in to place, which also allows for easy removal. The included cables and power supply are quite adequate and what you would expect in a price conscious bundle. The aluminium heat sinks are well made and mount up as easy as applying a sticker/magnet to your fridge. The included micro SD card was of fair quality, and comes pre-loaded with ‘openelec’, I did not try this feature as I formatted the card for my prefered format and version of software, I ran in to some issues with the provided micro SD card, however they were user errors. I used a very old laptop with an out of date card reader which corrupted the SD card. My brand new PC does not have a card reader, so I purchased a USB card reader and was able to fix everything.

    And the last bit of the bundle, the Rii ultra mini wireless mouse/keyboard combo…….I don’t have words to describe how awesome I think this thing is, just take my word for it!

    And in closing, the buyapi.ca team is awesome, my ‘special requests’ section on my order form was as follows, “can you please draw me an awesome rick and morty?” whom ever handled my order 110% delivered, and the picture is now framed and hangs on the wall in my man cave!

    I will be placing many more orders, an easy 5 stars for the product, and the team at buyapi.ca!!!!!
    Thanks for the great service!
