  • Nice for small projects

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

    Pros:

    This is OK shield for Arduino. Fits my Arduino Mega 2560 r3. Pins are readable and you quickly know how to connect it. It comes with LED and a reset button which is nice if it covers your Arduinos reset button (the one on the Mega 2560 is still visible (reset button, not the D13 LED).

    Cons:

    Top analogue inputs are offset so you cannot stack another shield on it. I was kind of dissapointed with that but it looks intentional. Two of the pin strips were soldered a bit askew but the shield fits anyway (a firm push and it jumps in (be sure to put all the pins all the way down).

    OtherThoughts:

    The breadboard is nice for small projects and does its job.

    Bottomline:

    For this price I'd but the bigger breadboard as I feel I won't be using the shield. Still it might come handy if you want to solder some parts on it, put it on arduino and pack it as a finished project.
