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

    Pros:
    I have bought several samples of the motor driver for several robotic platforms. It works fine with Arduino and these motors : * High Torque 30RPM 12V DC Geared Motor (SKU 91627) http://dx.com/p/high-torque-30rpm-12v-dc-geared-motor-91627 * LynxMotion A4WD1...
    Cons:
    Nothing. providing an 6-wire jumper with it will be fine

    I bought three of these

    posted by PuzzleTeam on 04/26/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's a great product and it has a good price. It's the easiest full h-bridge for use, and it can be used with majority of motors. If you have a small motor, you can use 2 of these in just one motor driver. But if you have a big motor, you should use one mot...
    Cons:
    No manual, and it is huge.

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

    Pros:
    Very cheap, in my country at this price do not buy nor L298N, let alone a whole plate. Still has an internal 5V regulator (7805). Very bright LEDs help in time to use.
    Cons:
    Not have documentation, it makes it very difficult, but nothing that solves a survey. Connectors engines are of low quality ar...

    Cons:
    The yellow headers were on the top side of the board. I desoldered them and moved them to the bottom side for easier use with b...
