Pros:
Compact Good clean looks. Not too bling bling. Clearly labeled PCB JST-RM connectors on PCB (2.0mm spacing)
Cons:
No current limiting on USB port Would be nice if DX also sold a set of cables with JST-RM female plugs to suit this and many other similar boards :)
Other:
Onboard 5v regulator can deliver up too 500mA with additional cooling. This is the chip located under pins +12v, GND It can power external devices through gnd, vcc and also through the USB ports. Do not charge mobile phones from the USB port this will draw too much current and may damage the power regulator. I tried for a few seconds and it got very hot.
Bottomline:
Will buy this again. Great value for money.
