Overall a great sensor – Ultrasonic Sensor Distance Measuring Module Reviews

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

Pros:
It is relative cheap Not that hard to use
Cons:
Suffers from a common 200ms no target "bug" compared to the datasheet available from other sites (They specify 38ms) http://www.mentby.com/paul-bouchier/ultrasonic-sensor.html 450cm range
Other:
A manual sure would have been nice!!! The range specified (450cm) seems a bit optimistic. A module that could do the ranging on its own with a digital I2C/SPI or other bus interface might have been handy in some circumstances.
Bottomline:
A fine sensor I might order more if I need them.
