Good motor, good value – High Torque 30RPM 12V DC Geared Motor Reviews

posted by amrobotics on 09/04/2012 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Very solid all metal gearbox, lots of torque. Good quality for the price. Faceplate has threaded holes for easy install with bolts.
Cons:
It is kinda heavy, so it might crush other items during shipping. Happened to me, knocked a smd capacitor off a pcb. Best way to avoid this is to order small, fragile items separately.
Other:
Other motors from the same manufacturer with different reduction ratios available on dealextreme have the same pros and cons I would imagine.
Bottomline:
It's hard to find all metal gearboxed motors for less than 10$, but here's one.
