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

Pros:
It comes at a good price. The quality if electronics is very good.
Cons:
Im not sure if the heatsink is well dimensioned - it becomes very hot even during first test of the motors with no real load. It is unfortunate that no documentation comes with the product.
Other:
The documentation is not that easily to be found on Internet - I recommend to check Dealextreme forums here for guidance. The mounting holes seems to be compatible with Arduino uno size, however it is not an Arduino shield.
Bottomline:
Very good quality product at good price. Attaching a datasheet would really improve the usability.
