    Decent breadboard jumper wires

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

    Great jumper wires

    posted by Vockhead on 04/17/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Decent lengths included, so far I haven't had any problems with reaching the parts I wanted. - Build quality looks pretty good, haven't had anything come apart on me yet, nothing has broken or come undone. -Male counterparts snap in and don't fall out easy.
    Cons:
    None that I can think of, I got pretty much exactly what i expected.
