Introduction kit with enough materials to get to know the Arduino basics – UNO R3 Starter Development Board Kit for Arduino - Blue + Green Reviews

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

Pros:
It has everything to start experimenting with the Arduino program. Parts, a CD with exercises and the Arduino program and the Arduino Uno R3. All this is deliverd with a handy storage box which also helps protecting the parts during transport.
Cons:
The CD is in Chinese and the Arduino programs on it are not the latest. Also, no information included (that I could read) on the acrylic board and using the screen.
Other:
The language problem is easily resolved as the exercises are based on the ones of www.drobot.com and www.arduino.cc. So you can find them there as well as the most recent version on the Arduino program/driver. And more exercises and information. You can do most of the experiments with the parts in the kit. To do them all you will need these parts too: power relay (HK4100F-DC5V-SHG), Shift register 74HC595 and a servo.
Bottomline:
Nice starting kit to get to know the Arduino experimentation board.
