Rated 5 out of 5 by Ahmad The most Amazing LEGO® Product
First of all this is my first LEGO® MINDSTORMS® product so i can't compare it with NXT .
I only can say that this product is MUST-HAVE .
It's the most amazing product i've ever bought ,
You can build robots with +550 technic elements of and 3 powerful motors and sure the great sensors .
But don't forget to buy an organizer to place your pieces on it because there is a lot of tiny pieces .
Every thing is awesome .
Easy to program .
Programming via brick is great .
Great product for education .
The design of the pieces and brick .
The technology of this product is awesome and smart .
The software is too laggy .
So that's it and thank you .

Rated 5 out of 5 by CommandoKhan Greatest Lego Robot Ever!!!
My friends and I used the EV3 for the FIRST Lego League Competition, Nature's Fury, in 2013. We decided on using the EV3 because we thought we would have a better chance of winning the competition. But we did not want to be bias, so we tested the NXT Brick with the same Technic frame. The EV3 had better results. Using the EV3 robot, our team came in first at the Competition!
The point I am trying to make is that the EV3 robot is superior to the NXT, NXT 2.0, and the RCX. End of story.

For a couple of months, i have been waiting for this product to come out out on the shelves, but today when i went home and i opened the box, it wasn't really that great. First of all it really needed a camera, as my dad owns a plastic company, i know that whats in the box does not reflect the price, its actually worth max 75-100$ and with that price we could tell its way overpriced.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ike5675 to expensive
it sounds cool, but the price bothers me. i spent at least a year saving for nxt 2.0, but this mindstorms price is very high. and i don't want to wast 2 years on this. i don't know how good this will be but i wouldn't bother to save for this. nxt is cool, but this has way to much detail and that just adds more and more costs. the price like risen about 50 or 60 dollars!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Trubshaw Even the box is disappointing - software disaster
The NXT box could be used as a work tray, this one is just a carton. Inside you get less sensors and motor value plus software is now download only.
When I downloaded and installed the EV3 software my NXT 2.0 software stopped working although version 1.0 was untouched. The software itself has issue on my Vista software such as the getting started screem remain smallsized when I click on it making it unreadable. Both issues are with technical support at the moment.
The NXT sensors can only used after downloading the blocks from support website. I also have gyro and accelerations sensors which i downloaded blocks from the suppliers website. I am still at a loss as to how you use a NXT motor as no block is provided for it?
The RXC sensors I could use with the NXT set are now apparently unsupported - hardly very green!
My recommendation is if you have NXT stick with it and cherrish it.
Never before have I been so disapponted with a lego purchase, if i could set the clock back I would have never bought it. Where is my Tardis?

Rated 5 out of 5 by BrennGrant101 The Best Set Ever
Talented set and I recommend all of the LEGO Mindstorms fans getting this set. I love all LEGO products, mostly creator and technic. Great set, and is worth it. Only, I think that the BEST SET EVER is 41999, from the Technic building challenge. (coming in Aug.)

This is the best lego set EVER! I just wish it could include a camera and maybe a speaker so you could spy on someone but otherwise this set is so coooool!
