Great PCB, better then others – 8 Push Buttons Keypad Module - Blue Reviews

Pros:
Great PCB, i have a few others alike, though with pins facing up. These are alot better having the extra 4 drillholes with screws (i believe M1.6 size). Buttons are good quality and all equaly responsive.
Cons:
1 of the PCB's came with a few pins slightly bent. Though you can try to bend them back, big change they will snap off. Its not a con of the PCB itself though.
Other:
The annoying part is buttonlayout-numbering and pin-outs. Though most go from top-left to bottom-right from K0 to K7, this PCB has right row K0-3 and left row K4-7. Keep in mine if u use a 8pin connector on a controller that has Ground/K0-K7 layout, your buttons will be messed up.
Bottomline:
Though the layout is someone annoying (button sequence), its far better usable then other 8button PCB's, mostly due lack of mounting holes and vertical pin-out instead of a horizontal one.
