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

    Pros:
    * Works perfectly * Exactly the right size for Arduino Uno boards * The self-adhesive tape seems to cling on tightly * Seems like a durable build quality
    Cons:
    * I would appreciate a slightly lower price, but that's the only downside I can think of

    Pros:
    This is a must have if you are going to use a arduino, it makes prototyping very easy. The board it self is of good quality. The mini breadboard can be fasten with a peace of double layer tape to the prototyping shield, but this is not necessary. Good quali...
    Cons:
    The is non big cons on this product for its prize, but personally I would like some overvoltage and overcurrent protection for ...

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    This did the job for me, the copper didn't rust and everything on the board works (led, buttons etc.). This product is also very cheap compared to the standard arduino boards. I really liked the +5V and GND rows (very usefull!)
    Cons:
    I don't like the pre-connected copper-holes, there are just to many of them. It's probably inpossible to solder multiple chips ...

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

    Pros:
    Plugs right into rev3 uno. Pin spacing is correct. Soldering quality looks good. Includes additional 5v and gnd headers to plug in to when using the breadboard. As well as 5v and gnd buses if your soldering your project. Has 2 LEDs with resistors. All you...
    Cons:
    Female headers for output pins hold thin component pins very loose, doesn't make good contact. But they work fine when plugging...

    Nice proto Shield

    posted by gallythetuned on 04/30/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Cheap and efficient. The breadboard is not glued to the shield (id has an adhesive face for fixation) so you decide to fasten it or not depending of your needs. User leds and button works fine,rest button works fine too.
    Cons:
    this shield is non stackable which is a major cons since the stackability is the arduino's major strength and some pins were be...

    Easily the best buy for an Arduino Proto Shield

    posted by ExtremeFlyer on 02/21/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Very inexpensive, comes with the tiny breadboard useful for single project. I ended up buying many more of those tiny breadboards. Has SMD and IC pads if you want to solder; also comes with 2 LEDs and one switch (the other one in the photo is tied to RESET).
    Cons:
    Contacts oxidizes over time (a couple of months) but some sandpaper or flux can fix it fast if you are soldering. ICSP/SPI head...

    Pros:
    - Allows you to breadboard small prototypes while maintaing the original Arduino footprint. - Good build quality. - Great price!
    Cons:
    - Does not extend SCL or SDA pins that were introduced on Uno R3 and Leonardo but those pins are still accessible on the Arduin...
