Pros:
Great build, easy to setup and come exactly as advertised. It is increbly cheap compared to the stuff that is packed into this products
Cons:
The only con that I can think of is the button debounce needs to be done in code and it does not come with documentation of any kind. But that is easily solved by reading the excellent writeup on the TM1638 library available online. Just google the library name and the rest is easy.
Other:
The position of the IDC cable connector forces you to put the cable on the same side of the display. Could be an inconvenience depending on the panel mount or enclosures.
Bottomline:
Great product! Thanks DX!
