Very inexpensive for what you get. Drives DC motors and Bi-polar stepper motors (4 wire).
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.
Basic documentation or a link to documentation would be very useful.
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.
