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

    Pros:

    It is relative cheap
    Not that hard to use

    Cons:

    Suffers from a common 200ms no target "bug" compared to the datasheet available from other sites
    (They specify 38ms)

    450cm range

    OtherThoughts:

    A manual sure would have been nice!!!

    The range specified (450cm) seems a bit optimistic.

    A module that could do the ranging on its own with a digital I2C/SPI or other bus interface might have been handy in some circumstances.

    Bottomline:

    A fine sensor I might order more if I need them.
