    Very accurate, but within a small range

    posted by stijda on 04/13/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    -Very accurate distance measuring in the 10cm to 30cm. -Good for object detection (e.g. object moving by) -No influence from object materials, what can be the case with IR-based distance sensors
    Cons:
    -Rather small measuring range (10cm to 30cm) -Programming is a bit 'tricky' if you are new to microchip programming.

    A fine and cheap sonar for simple projects

    posted by bmagyar on 11/17/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    I had my time with sonars and this one is cool one especially because of it's price and quality. The 4-pin design makes it clear how to use it without runtime pinmode switching (unlike the 3-pin sonars). It's nice in close-range measures.

    Works pretty good

    posted by jpeyton on 11/09/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Novice  (still getting used to it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Build quality is good. Works as advertised, however I wish the range was better. Price is unbeatable.
    Cons:
    I may need to tweak the code a bit, but using tutorials found in the Internet, the range isn't much better than 2-3 feet.
