just great – Breadboard Jumper Wires for Electronic DIY (70-Cable Pack) Reviews

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

Pros:
* very convenient: I generally used solid-core wires on my breadboards, and those wires are much more convenient * very cheap: those 70 jumper wires give a total length of 9.70m for a low price; a 10-meter bobin of solid core wire costs almost the same price here
Cons:
* among the 50 12-centimeter wires, I received 10 green, 10 red, 10 orange, 10 white and 10 blue; I wished I would get some black ones * when I'm prototyping, I often need short connections; 12-centimeter is much more that I generally need; I think the pack would be better with some shorter wires (for example some 6-centimeter and 9-centimeter ones) * the black tip as a diameter of about 3mm, while the distance between 2 holes of a breadboard is only 2.54mm; hence I can hardly put more that 4 such jumper wires in adjacent holes
Other:
Those wires smelled a bit when I received them, but after a few weeks the smell is mostly gone.
Bottomline:
I love those wires, I will probably by one more pack.
