Simple as it can be – JY-MCU Arduino Bluetooth Wireless Serial Port Module Reviews

Involvement:Novice  (still getting used to it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Simple to connect and use. I was able to wire it to my arduino nano, and exchange some traffic with a laptop over bluetooth. Comes with a 4-wire bus.
Cons:
Not very customizable. No way to give a name to the bluetooth device, no way to do anything besides serial profile. Invisible to iPods and iPhones. No specifications or manual.
Other:
For a beginner starting from scratch, I would suggest ordering some usb to serial adapter (3.3V level). This will make prototyping on a PC a bit simpler.
Bottomline:
I recommend it to my friends. When I finish my prototype project, I'll order a handful of these to make samples.
