great price for a DHT11 chip – DHT11 Arduino Compatible Digital Temperature Humidity Sensor Module Reviews

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

Pros:
Very easy to use an interface with Arduino; simply copy and paste code from the arduino website and you'll be up and running. Seems to be relatively accurate. Temp not as good as the ds18b20, but good enough for most hobby applications. Humidity sensor is very good though...when you breath on it you see an instant response
Cons:
They did some funny rerouting of the pins from the DHT11 to the output pins. Also, no labels on the output pins. You can see the traces though and the DHT11 pins are well labeled so it should be no problem to figure out what goes where.
Other:
really cheap, a fun impulse buy and great addition to your Aruduino or MCU!
Bottomline:
Less than anywhere else.
