Description: This is an 8GB micro SDHC card that is pre-installed with the Raspbian operating system for the Raspberry Pi. This SD card and adapter is perfect for a Raspberry Pi first timer or beginner while still providing convenience for anyone with more experience with the platform. This little card allows you to start using your Raspberry Pi straight out of the box without worrying about imaging it on your own.
Note: The software on this card is compatible with all Raspberry Pi Model A, A+, B, B+, and RPi2 boards.
Note: This SD Card used to contain NOOBS, a system image with six different Linux based operating systems including, Archlinux, OpenELEC, Pidora, RaspBMC, Raspbian and RiscOS. Unfortunately our supplier has removed each operating system except for Raspbian. A link to download NOOBS can be found in the Documents section below.

I would have been better off using a blank card. I used my Raspberry Pi without a display, and quickly found out that the distro chooser on this card seems to require a display.
No complaints at all about the SD card - just its contents.
In future I’ll buy a blank microSD card and load it with the distro I want.
Sorry to hear that this didn’t fit your needs. It’s still a great card for people needing a pre-installed version of NOOBS operating system for the Raspberry Pi. Happy hacking
I have no idea why this product didn’t work for me but it just didn’t do nuthin'. It seems to have the “right” partition structure if you view it on a USB dongle on a Linux machine. My only suspicion is that the package I got was labeled for the RPi 2 with no mention of the B+, so maybe I got the wrong thing.
As per the previous reviewer, if you have a Linux box and a reasonable internet connection you can get a generic SD card and easily download the Rasbian you need from the Raspi site for less $$ – as long as you can live without the cute RPi logoed adapter.
