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

Pros:
Price... Simple to connect and use. Originally purchased these for use with a cnc. I ended up getting a higher powered driver, but I plan to use these to make a small plotter.
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 breadoards.
Other:
Would be nice to be able to adjust the output on-board in case I wanted 3V out. Took a little work to figure out how to properly connect a stepper but using a multimeter helped a lot. This was more a problem with the documentation for the motors.
Bottomline:
Great product for a low price. I bought 3.
