Good but be careful – L298N Stepper Motor Driver Controller Board for Arduino Reviews

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

Pros:
Very inexpensive for what you get. Drives DC motors and Bi-polar stepper motors (4 wire).
Cons:
No documentation. None. Install the 5V jumper while 5V connected to Arduino and your Arduino is fried. Mine fried. Slotted screw terminal screws don't look very high quality.
Other:
Basic documentation or a link to documentation would be very useful.
Bottomline:
I have already ordered more of this product and feel confident in the product now that I have reverse engineered the circuit and understand it. I recommend this product.
