Fantastic Arduino starter kit. – Arduino Compatible UNO 2011 Component Basic Element Pack Starter Kit Reviews

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

Pros:
Arduino Uno v2 with Atmega328P-PU and Atmega8U2 USB-to-serial chip. Board appears to be well made. Plenty of parts to play with, far more than kits twice the price. Comes in a plastic box with room for all of the parts.
Cons:
The only con so far, after testing almost everything: the plastic cover on the power plug for the battery pack is flimsy. Trying to pull the plug out of the Arduino board results in the plastic cover being pulled off. Easy to replace though.
Other:
Documentation and project guides are available for free on the internet. Just google for Arduino. The O'Reilly Arduino Cookbook is worth purchasing and goes well with this kit.
Bottomline:
Well worth the price. Great kit if just starting out. Would make a great gift as well.
