nicely built but lacks a manual – Arduino Prototype Shield with Mini Breadboard Reviews

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

Pros:
nicely built. the first thing you'll notice is that it looks extremely professional and just like an original arduino shield. it is also a must-have if you're into fast prototyping because a separate breadboard is sometimes cumbersome to carry around.
Cons:
I felt the lack for some sort of manual instructing how to use the shield. ok, it's a simple shield and buyers will be using it correctly in no time, but let's keep in mind we're talking about arduino developers (experimental homemade learners). it would be nice to include a simple sheet indicating the use of the leds as the button.
Other:
a must-have for arduino fans.
Bottomline:
I thought it'd be like any other arduino stuff: just one more piece. but this little breadboard really makes the difference between having fun and having a headache of wires or an external breadboard. just get one. it will make you happy.
