comment What is different between the EV3 Home and Educational sets?
@Peterino thanks for mentioning. That link had been put in there by someone else, so I'm not sure what it was intending to link to. The alternative comparison you mentioned looks great; would you like to edit the answer and fix that part up?

comment Unable to turn on the EV3
Have you tried reformatting the SD? It should only contain a single FAT32 partition. Also check it's not a SDXC card, as they are not supported

comment LEGO Mindstorms not downloading to brick properly
It is espected that the file on the brick is smaller then the one on your computer. This is because they are two different files: the one on your computer is the programming code that you see in the graphical environment; the one on the brick is special machine code that has been compiled from your program.

comment Is it possible to add block to the on-brick “NXT Program” menu?
No, as far as I know that is hardcoded into the firmware, and none of the firmware replacements do anything to improve it

comment Where can I download the LEGO Mindstorms NXT 2.0 IDE?
It might be a good idea to include those instructions as part of your answer - link-only answers are frowned upon.

comment NXT shuts down in 5 minutes
Is this "five minutes" measured while a program is running, or from the beginning of the NXT brick startup?

comment Parts in Lego Set
Peeron sounds just like what you're looking for. You can add sets to your account, and view how many of a certain piece you own, and in what colours.
