NotSure

Not nearly as bad as I thought...

I originally gave this a 1-star review because I couldn't find any examples or documentation, but I can't seem to edit or remove it. The original rating was poor because there was no documentation, but I was able to find it on the SEEED site. It would be nice if there were more instructions for getting started, or just a link to the SEEED page, but the equipment seems pretty good so far.

IoTurrrrrrrible

Horrible so far...

Coming from the Arduino ecosystem, this is just ridiculously hard and feels like trying to shoehorn Windows into something that doesn't need it. I know what it means if things are meant for developers, but this is literally sensors and a board with no instructions as to what sensors go with which types of plugs, or how to access those plugs later. No example code. 25GB(!) of downloads to use Visual Studio. I literally had my Arduino MKR1000 up and serving a website with a simple on / off switch for a relay within fifteen minutes of laying eyes on it (half an hour if you count having to download a few libraries that many users already have). I've spent DAYS trying to get the IoT core on the Pi3 to work, and all I can do is upload the radio example (which I can do much more easily without IoT core). I will update this if my experience changes, but this really not at all a consumer ready product, nor should it use the word 'easy' twice in the description. I'm trying not to rant, but using this is like wiping with sandpaper you just paid $ for. You can't give up or it's a waste of money, but , it's rough.

No instruction manual or sample code provided.

Where is the documentation and sample code for a kit it expects the buyer to already know who, what, and where to put all the connections and how to write C# code to talk to the devices. Microsoft and Seeed did a poor job finalizing this kit for sale to the general public. I can see where it plugs into the Raspberry Pi 3 but then it take away the breadboard option and does not tell you where to connect the provided sensors and what pins in the Raspberry Pi to connect to by code. Checked out the Window 10 IoT site for sample code for this kit and found none.
