Nice for small projects – Arduino Prototype Shield with Mini Breadboard Reviews

This is OK shield for Arduino. Fits my Arduino Mega 2560 r3. Pins are readable and you quickly know how to connect it. It comes with LED and a reset button which is nice if it covers your Arduinos reset button (the one on the Mega 2560 is still visible (reset button, not the D13 LED).
Top analogue inputs are offset so you cannot stack another shield on it. I was kind of dissapointed with that but it looks intentional. Two of the pin strips were soldered a bit askew but the shield fits anyway (a firm push and it jumps in (be sure to put all the pins all the way down).
The breadboard is nice for small projects and does its job.
For this price I'd but the bigger breadboard as I feel I won't be using the shield. Still it might come handy if you want to solder some parts on it, put it on arduino and pack it as a finished project.
