Great unit! – 8X Digital Tube + 8X Key + 8X Double Color LED Module Reviews

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

Pros:
You just can't beat this module for the price!
-8 digits of LED display, with WORKING decimal points
-8 GREEN/RED LEDs that are individually controllable.
-Easy to use library written for Arduino.
-8 Tactile buttons with good feeling/clicking sound
-Only uses 3 pins!
Cons:
Buttons need to be scripted to debounce. There is no build in debounce in this unit.
One of my LEDs is also internally slanted. The light output from it is not straight on like it should be. Not noticeable unless you are projecting the light output on something.

Bottomline:
Great unit. Time will tell if it holds up to long-term use. I plan to have one module on 24/7 and i'll report back if there are issues.
I've ordered 2-3 more of these units, and a green one as well.
