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

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.
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.
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.
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.
