Cheap and easy – HY-SRF05 Ultrasonic Distance Measuring Sensor Module for Arduino Reviews

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

Pros:
Really easy to use. With a google search you can find the diagram explaining how to hook it on your arduino and a source code sample for dumping the distance on the serial monitor. I'm using it on my car to avoid obstacles.
Cons:
It says Range: 2~450cm but i coud only get 60cm. Also there are cheaper options on dealextreme that weren't available when i bought this one, so at the time it was the better price but maybe it's better to take a look around before buying this one.
Other:
Usefull if you need to get the distance of big objects on a 60cm range.
Bottomline:
It works.
