  • Decent, but could be better

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

    Pros:

    Ridiculously cheap compared to what you'd have to pay for the individual components + PCB to hold it.

    Cons:

    The output voltage fluctuates depending on the load, so it's not for applications where a stable voltage source is mission critical.
    Also lacking extra protection on the input and output lines.
    Polyfuses aren't THAT expensive, and they also don't take up much space, so I just don't understand why they're on included on the board from the factory.

    OtherThoughts:

    Nothing really.

    Bottomline:

    As long as you don't need a really damn stable power source it does the job for cheap.
    Usable as a breadboard power supply, but just keep an eye on the voltage level with a multimeter
