Cheap, quality reasonable if you consider the price tag :-) It works with the Arduino and connecting is simple. The Arduino stepper motor library works well with the product. The driver board looks well and the LED's are helpful while testing your sketch.
The torque is very low and motor gets pretty warm after short usage. One of the most annoying things is the fact is only runs in one direction! so in that prospective the motor is not very useful. I have tried several sketches but no way to reverse the motor.
I would suggest to mention that the motor runs only one direction and explain that the torque is low!
Okay for a starter price is okay and value for money worth buying. But consider for what use you want this motor.
