Works very well – JY-MCU 8X Red Light Digital Tube + 8X Key + 8X Double Color LED Module Reviews

Pros:
This is a very low cost module for what is on it. With all the buttons, dual colour LEDs and full 8 digit display, an awful lot of information can be conveyed. I used it for a ping time tracker, using the LEDs as a bar graph and the actual results on the LED digits. These can be chained to multiple units using the included cables.
Cons:
None that I've run into, they respond quickly and operate well.
Other:
Buy a few, you'll find all sorts of little uses for them.
Bottomline:
Chaining three together to an Arduino makes for a nice little stock ticker.
