Good H-Bridge for Arduino – Monster Moto Shield for Arduino - Red Reviews

This H-bridge allows you to control relativelly powerful DC motors. I tested on my Arduino Uno and it works nicely. In the Internet it is easy to find documentation and examples.
It can get very hot. Never touch directly after using too much. It would be nice if this board have included the binding posts. I have to install the binding posts but nothing hard to do.
I think that this shield should have some heatsink for the H-bridges IC. This would allow to operate better. Also, it would be good if an thermal sensor were included.
I recommend this product for arduino owners. It is great for robotics projects. I am using this in a robotic wheelchair project.
