very useful – L298N Stepper Motor Driver Controller Board for Arduino Reviews

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

Pros:
An inexpensive and useful solution to drive motors without the con of making your own driver module.
Cons:
Hard to find any info about this online, you have to read the datasheet of the driver and figure it out how it works.
Other:
The jumper beside the 7805 turn on this voltage regulator and puts the enable pins and the +5v in high state. Be sure that if you use a voltage higher than 5v for the motors, with this jumper on, the voltage regulator will get warm.
Bottomline:
If you want a cheap driver to play around and not get angry trying to make your own then buy this, its a must have ;-).
