Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
it works as described. I used it for my raspberry pi, here are the instructions: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4_fu904QqM It can read 4 different analog signals, this is good.
Cons:
8 is not much, so you can't seriously use for values you need with some precision. reference voltage can be only between ~1.6 V and 5 V, so not possible to measure in mV range.
Other:
I didn't use it as Digital to Analogue, but it is also possible.
Bottomline:
fine for learning, usefull circuit, not only the chip, this is fine.
