    Great sturdy product, great price

    posted by SovaOka on 01/02/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great cutters and oh so cheap! The cutters come in red color, plastic looks like it will last - strong plastic. They are nice to hold in your hand.
    Cons:
    The metal could give in if you cut some thicker wires, but so far so good.

    Great LCD for a great price

    posted by SovaOka on 01/02/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very well built. Easy to solder, easy to operate with Arduino and the default LiquidCrystal library (you just have to change the pins from the provided example).
    Cons:
    It could come with pin bars if you want to have it put on breadboard for prototyping. This way you have to solder with wires th...

    Cheap and great

    posted by SovaOka on 01/02/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This board is sold everywhere and the quality is the same as everywhere else. It's the best board for prototyping circuits. Most chips and other elements fit perfectly. What sold it for me was the price. Here at local stores it is three times more expensive.
    Cons:
    I don't know why but the horizontal rails for power sources are not connected through the whole lenght but are cut in the middl...

    Great set of picks

    posted by SovaOka on 12/01/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The picks are great quality. There are no hard edges where you could cut youself. Top of the picks has a slightly ridged grip so it doesn't slip and it feels nice in the hand. The plastic is quite flexible. There are great picks for a great value.
    Cons:
    Nothing bad to say about these.

    Wonderful capo!

    posted by SovaOka on 12/01/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Well padded so it doesn't ruin the neck of the guitar or ukulele. The spring is very strong so the capo presses very well on the strings and it sounds wonderful. It also fits ukulele very well as the back is in the right curve to do so. It has a nice grip. ...
    Cons:
    The only thing that bothers me is that the handle is pointing down which can be a bit annoying when playing bar chords - especi...

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

    Pros:
    A lot of tact switches for a low price. The switches fit great on any breadboards with no pin bending. The all came well paked and all the pins were straight and not broken.
    Cons:
    I have nothing bad to say about these switches.

    Great set of adjustable resistors

    posted by SovaOka on 12/01/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The resistors came well packed and protected. No pins were bend or broken. The resistors are labeled and labels are readable. They came separeted in plastic bags so you don't need to search for the right one.
    Cons:
    The pins are a bit off for use with breadboard but with a bit of force you can pust them in so it's not such a big deal.

    Nice for small projects

    posted by SovaOka on 12/01/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is OK shield for Arduino. Fits my Arduino Mega 2560 r3. Pins are readable and you quickly know how to connect it. It comes with LED and a reset button which is nice if it covers your Arduinos reset button (the one on the Mega 2560 is still visible (res...
    Cons:
    Top analogue inputs are offset so you cannot stack another shield on it. I was kind of dissapointed with that but it looks inte...

    Nice set of LEDs

    posted by SovaOka on 12/01/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I ordered these with other products and they came especially well packed. Padded and protected. No legs were bend or broken. They all work - I've tested every single one :)
    Cons:
    Green LEDs are quite dimmer than red and yellow LEDs. When you look at green it seems dim, but when you connect them with yello...

    Great set of resistors

    posted by SovaOka on 12/01/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The resistors come as shown - in strips of same values. The values are handwritten on the yellow paper which is nice for quickly indentifying the resistors. Colors are visible and readable. The wires are thick enough to go nicely into breadboard.
    Cons:
    I have nothing negative to say about the resistors.
