    Pros:
    Well made, rainbow of colors makes color coding easy. The ends seem firmly attached.
    Cons:
    At just over $.10 per wire they seem pricey. Other than that no cons yet. As I stated above, well made.

    Pros:
    Solidly built. Good spring tension to maintain contact, but so much as to crack the housing. Connector is soldered on, not molded, so it can be removed and replaced or reused easily. Arrived quickly (for DX!) I ought extras because they are so cheap.
    Cons:
    Unit does NOT come with mounting screws. Usually not a problem to grab a couple out of the bins and go, but in this situation ...

    Pros:
    4 port hub with dust covers. Covers are useful to me as I can't always protect electronics like I should. Power switch disables attached devices when required. This little gadget has extended the life of my old laptop that has only three built in USB por...

    Great Gadget, BUT won't work with latest Arduino software

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

    Pros:
    Complete, ready to go. I had time to kill after leaving the post office, so I fired up the laptop and 'played' while my wife shopped. Circuit board is good quality, resistors are labelled, lots of wire jumper.
    Cons:
    Won't sync with latest version of Arduino. You have to use an older version which is on the supplied disk. Use the folder wit...
