    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Very inexpensive for what you get.
    Drives DC motors and Bi-polar stepper motors (4 wire).

    Cons:

    No documentation.  None.
    Install the 5V jumper while 5V connected to Arduino and your Arduino is fried.  Mine fried.
    Slotted screw terminal screws don't look very high quality.

    OtherThoughts:

    Basic documentation or a link to documentation would be very useful.

    Bottomline:

    I have already ordered more of this product and feel confident in the product now that I have reverse engineered the circuit and understand it.
    I recommend this product.
