- October 17th, 2020Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0OverviewI would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI got this the day it came out , and I'm having a pretty fun time with it! Here are the specs of each main piece in this set: BRICK: The Brick is a net-down to the EV3 Brick because it only has 6 ports you can connect your motors/sensors with, it does not have a screen where you can test your sensors in real time (without a phone), you can only use the rechargeable battery, no normal AA batteries, so if the rechargeable battery breaks, you need to get a new one, and the Brick is not compatible with the EV3 and EV2. The good things about it is the bluetooth connection to your phone that has the coding app is down to the nanosecond when you are looking at your sensors in real time, the sounds it makes are pretty nice, you can download up to 20 different coding projects onto it, it comes with a rechargeable battery and it is much, much lighter than the EV3 Brick. MOTORS: I'm pretty sure the motors are as fast as the EV3 ones, and they are rectangular, so you can make easier shapes when you are building them. The HUGE downside is the cord, which is long enough, but if it breaks, you cannot fix it or buy a knew cable like the EV3 cords. COLOR/DISTANCE SENSOR: The cords are the same thing as the motors, and it is kind of hard to put them on your build because there isn't much connection points on them. The distance sensor can detect anything from about 40cm away, while the color sensor can only detect something from about 14cm away, so it is a small downside when it comes to detection distance. The color sensor can detect quite a bit of colors, more than the EV3 sensor (I think). LEGO BRICKS: I am glad that there is a lot more Lego bricks than the EV3 set, and there is a wide variety of bricks. You have 6 very sturdy wheels, a big red ball and a small red ball, two white rubber bands, two huge dart launchers, a 11x19 teal technic baseplate, a bunch of gears, some cool stickers, and a lot of white technic coverings, including A LOT of the usual technic peices! Also, the charging cable is not that long, which isn't a big deal in my opinion. CODING: I love how you can use Python on the EV4, and I love even more the Snap-It coding style that is much better than the different style the EV3 used. There is a wide variety of Snap-it blocks you can use, so you can do whatever you want with your EV4 set! I would have given this set a 5-star only if the cables on the motors and sensors are basically the same ones used in the EV3 sets.Play Experience5.0Level of Difficulty3.0Value for Money4.0Build Time: 12 hrsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?45Robot Inventor
- February 12th, 2021Average rating3out of 5 stars3.0Good kit, but a little disappointingPNinOC |I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI 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.Play Experience3.0Value for Money2.0Build Time: 2 hrsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?35Robot Inventor
- October 20th, 2020Average rating1out of 5 stars1.0No Daisy ChainingAbraham1 |Purchased for: SonI’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.Play Experience1.0Value for Money1.0Build Time: 1 daysWas this helpful?15Robot Inventor
- December 22nd, 2020Average rating3out of 5 stars3.0Could Have Mentioned..New motor connectorsCGG79 |I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SonI 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.
