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

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

Pros:
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.
Cons:
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.
Other:
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.
Bottomline:
I recommend this product for arduino owners. It is great for robotics projects. I am using this in a robotic wheelchair project.
