This looks like a good deal, but I am hearing conflicting reports that power supply's that are not the official raspberry pi can give you issues, can anyone confirm?

Solid price point

Pricing these out separately was about $145

I've only played around with a handful of Rpis, but haven't had any issues linked to non official power supplies. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but as long as it's output is sufficient, I think you're good

Damn, over the holidays I picked up the equivalent canakit for 149.

This is fantastic deal and as we know Pis never go on "sale"

Is there a difference between the 4B?

According to the reviews, you may want to chip in for a better fan, this one is noisy apparently.

I couldn't find any info on the existence of 4, I think the 4B is the default, the ad probably just forgot to mention it?

If you look at the screenshots, on the box itself it says "Model B", so maybe the ad just forgot it indeed

I recently bought a similar kit for a couple dollars cheaper from AliExpress. Took about 2 weeks to arrive. Biggest difference was that the heatsink and fan for the the kit I got is much better and quieter (at least from what I've read about this one). My Pi idles at around 35 degrees. It's another option that might be worth looking into if you'd rather trade a longer delivery time for better thermal performance and quieter fan noise (and a slightly cheaper price, particularly if you want to replace the fan). There's a couple of kits I saw on Aliexpress that come with better cases, heatsinks, and fans for the same price. Otherwise, I'd say this is a pretty solid deal.

Can you provide the link to the one you bought from AliExpress.

I got this kit couple weeks ago. Everything is solid except the fan. It was so noisy that that I unplugged it right after turning it on. I don't need a fan for application (pi-hole), so it's all good.

Get a Flirc case. I run my 4B in one and it maxes out at 50C with a constant heavy torrent load.
