    works great!

    posted by DonQuijote on 08/20/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Arduino compatible board, working great as a leonardo, including usb keyoard and mouse emulation mode. Reset button conveniently located on the side, accesible even with shields on.
    Cons:
    SPI connector not soldered, not to bad. i guess being an arduino user WILL come with some soldering anyway.

    Pros:
    adjustable range, via screw comes threaded, and with locking nuts, so it can be attached easily anywhere
    Cons:
    you cannot put many of them too close together, because direct, or reflected light from one of them, might trigger another.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Cons:
    no interrupt available on key press, it has to be interrogated to get the state of a button (minor inconvenience) build quality...

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

    Pros:
    No random errors when moving the caliper back and forth. it always returns to zero, no matter how fast you move it with your hand. has rs232 serial interface, without any description of the non-standard pinout, though. will take it apart and probe it with...
    Cons:
    jaws are not perfect. light shines through. not that i mind the imperfection, i don't need that level of accuracy, but for some...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    A lot of features. Can pair with 2 phones together at any given time, my guess is that is has been devised for couples using the same car. I never charged it otherwise than by sunlight, even in European wintertime, which is not as bright as one might think...
    Cons:
    Pretty complicated to use in dual-phones-paired mode, but it is ok if you read the manual carefully. must wet suction cups in ...

    Works out of the box with windows 7. Operating System automatically installs required drivers from own repository. My guess is that they are rather standard drivers.
    Cons:
    Plastic case is rather flimsy and it accidentally broke in the bag. I could fix it with superglue, taking care not to glue the...
