Good for prototype testing – 8 Push Buttons Keypad Module - Blue Reviews

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

Pros:
Very straightforward way of creating 8 pushbuttons with separate leads (although common ground). I used two for prototype test of a 16 button device, and it saved me the efforts of mounting and wiring 16 pushbuttons.
Cons:
It's a rather small and strange device, and I can't image anything you could do with it besides prototype testing. Stopping at eight buttons, it can't serve as a full numeric entry keypad.
Other:
Nice click feel and sound. I wonder what it was designed for originally?
Bottomline:
Good buy if you need 8 buttons for cheap and easy.
