  • Very nice proto-shield, but not perfect

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

    Pros:

    Nicely built, good board quality, solder mask and silk marks.

    Very nice PCB design. Some pads for other componentes, GND and VCC tracks. There are even pads for an SOIC SMD circuit you can solder and use.

    Cons:

    There's one single big con, but it's a flaw. They are not stackable. They don't use the long pin headers, but a pair of male and female headers set 0.1" apart. This means you cannot plug other shield on top of this.

    OtherThoughts:

    I wish they used SMD or smaller through hole resistors for the leds. The resistors used don't fit the space meant for them and it looks a lousy job.

    Bottomline:

    Good value, versatile, you can use for a lot of projects, either temporary or soldering your componentes and making your own shield.
