    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Same design as suggested in chips datasheet, therefor working very well.

    Indoors range is around 10m as previous reviewer said, and outdoors range is over 50m, (that's how far i tested it only..)

    Board is really small 32x13mm.

    There are ready made libraries for Arduino (i tested with RF24 lib, but there is also one called Mirf)

    Cons:

    Connector doesn't fit on breadboard, you need wires to connect or make adapter board.

    Not very easy to mod to use bigger antenna.

    OtherThoughts:

    If you need one with more range, get the one with bigger antenna that is made by reference design from datasheet (available from DX).

    If you want to use it on mega 2560 or similar, then note that the pins are different than for uno and similar.

    DX is selling pack of 2 also, but last i checked buying 2 of these is cheaper than buying 2 pack.

    You can make more than 2 units talk to each other also.

    Bottomline:

    If you need to move a lot of data back and forth, between some mcu-s you will need this.
    Very quick to get it working on Arduino thanks for ready made libraries.
    And price is also better than anywhere else.
