Rated 3 out of 5 by Gmid from Good set, fun to play around with kids, limited. This is a strong set to teach the kids programming. It has a very easy learning curve, but allows you to make it as complex as you want in the end. The flexibility is awesome, enough motors and sensors to make anything you want. The biggest miss is to allow connection to other mindstorm bricks. The old EV sets would allow this, creating limitless possibilities and complexities. WIth this new set you're limited to one mindstorms brick, with 6 ports, and no communication whatsoever. I do hope this will be added as bluetooth functionality in future software/firmware updates. Yes I would recommend, but not to replace existing EV3 sets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brickpap from Best Mindstorms Robotic Set Yet I own several robotic platforms including the VEX, Mindstorms NXT, NXT2 and EV3. Thay are all good, but this is what makes the newest set the best: 1. All of the electronics work great from sensors, to lights, to hub, to motors, to mobile device app. 2. The example models really demonstrate what else you can build with a little imagination. 3. The programming is clear, concise and filled with options for all kinds of robots. 4. The lessons are engaging with great feedback that makes you want to go further. I advise getting a set and regardless of your experience level, start at the beginning and follow through the examples as they are in the app.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PNinOC from Good kit, but a little disappointing I bought the kit to get back into Lego robotics tinkering, and it's an okay kit, but it contains no touch sensors. for the price it would have been nice had Lego added a touch sensor or two. If Lego didn't plan on including a touch sensor it would be nice if they offered them for individual sale. It would also be nice if it had a similar array of components for individual part sale like servo motors and such like they had for EV3. As for recommending the kit... I would, but with reservations about the sensors and lack of additional components that make robotics interesting.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Abraham1 from No Daisy Chaining I’ve always been pretty interested in robotics. I remember playing with lego ever since I was a kid. When the ev3 came out, I was in my early 20s; I thought it was really awesome how you could create robots with lego and daisy chain up to 4 ev3 computers to make some incredible robots. I used to create some really cool robots in my spare time. I purchased the new robot inventor set for my 7 year old son, since I wanted him to have an interest in robotics like me. I was pretty frustrated when I found out there’s no way to daisy chain the new robot inventor system with other robot inventor computers. You’re limited to just 6 ports, and you cannot build bigger and better robots. I simply do not understand why the new system removed the daisy chaining functionality. The new system is pretty much worse than my older ev3.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Worm65 from Most functional build I’ve seen [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I think this might be the best LEGO set ever made. It’s got the 4 motors sensors and lots of pieces. I’ve made gearboxes, cars, clocks, a radar and even a code that makes an essentially learning vehicle. The builds on the app are great but if you’ve got the mind you could make so many things that even the ev3 with multiple hubs couldn’t do. I don’t see why people complain about this compared to ev3. This is far superior. The one issue I have is that the motors aren’t very strong and they stop with small amounts of force. But with 4 motors most of the time the issue comes up a have a second and maybe even third motor that I could put on there to increase the strength. I have seen multiple people who have made balancing vehicles with this. Absolutely amazing set well worth buying for anyone who likes STEM

Rated 3 out of 5 by CGG79 from Could Have Mentioned..New motor connectors I purchased this for a Christmas present for my son, so there is no building time yet. However, after making many calls to several Lego stores trying to figure out what kind of connectors the electronics use, I was told they were the same as the Technic sets. This is not the case, and is not made obvious in any pics or advertisements. Even employees did not know. Hopefully it is awesome, because I was getting it anyway. Just seems like an intentionally omitted detail (to be polite). Ugh, Just wish I knew earlier, not a deal breaker, I am sure he will love it. Time to start a new electronics bin. Happy Holidays

Rated 2 out of 5 by Grandpa6868 from Cannot recommend This is a poor third shot at this style of robotics for Lego. The one that came before is superior and still lacking in instruction etc. I do not believe you get any 'bang for the $' with this one. Among the many complaints I have one that stands out for all considering it, is the lack between any action either programmed or by remote operation so it constantly mis-performs and runs into everything. Sad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by theProdigy from A solid improvement over EV3 Bought for a project. I bought the yellow version of the hub, but its EXACTLY the same as the Turkoise one. The microprocessor is very powerful and uses Micropython, which is great for someone with programing experience. The code blocks are not bad either. To the haters: code block style of coding can guarantee program correctness in more advanced situations, so don't dismiss the idea too quickly. Its kinda like functional programming. The actual processor has sensors(accelerometers) that can tell yaw, pitch, etc. It works very well. The only drawback: the cables cannot be extended. It has 4 motors of sufficient strength but you can also use the motors from Control+. For example, I bought several large angular motors that came in the Volvo Hauler and they work with the hub. The app for both iOS and Mac OS are both really well made. I highly recommend them
