    Pros:

    Cons:
    Once you know how to do it, assembly is easy, but best keep your Raspberry ready to see if you have all the panels the right w...

    How to use/connect with/to Arduino Pro Mini

    posted by asgar5 on 01/27/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It is a cheap module. Good quality, covered in heatshrink. Allows USB connection to microcontrollers that only have a TTL connection, such as Arduino Pro Mini. Has a 5Volt and a 3.3 Volt supply
    Cons:
    Only the RX and TX signal lines are broken out (and of course Ground and 5 and 3.3 Volt). That makes use with Arduino a bit fid...

    posted by asgar5 on 12/09/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Good and cheap LED with a brandname. Very good deal. Regret I haven't bought more, but I will. Very bright light already with 300mA. Easy to solder, easy to mount
    Cons:
    None actually, or it should be that it is a bit unclear what the max current is.

    Works great

    posted by asgar5 on 01/25/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    As many people already wrote positive about it I cannot contribute much new other than that it works perfect on my Nikon D3200. For this amount of money you cant go wrong. Built sturdy with only 1 button. Nice and thin and carries the word Nikon.
    Cons:
    OK if I have to name one, maybe the battery slot opens a bit difficult. Just push lever 1 to the centre and pull on the sledge

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

    Pros:
    Cheap and gives a lot of light. It has a manual mode and 2 slave modes: one for regular slave and one for slave action with preflash ignore. Fantastic
    Cons:
    actually, none, but if i had to mention something... you need to press the on button just a tad longer than expected. and maybe...

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

    Pros:
    cheap, well built. It is the newest version with the extra pins. came with a usb cable. Windows might have som etrouble finfing the driver for it: Select 'update driver' and then go to the arduino ide directory where the arduinoUNO.inf file can be found. Wo...
    Cons:
    None whatsoever

    works right away

    posted by asgar5 on 05/31/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very cheap compared to other sources. 2 pins were slightly bend as a result from transport i guess, but after a little bending back it slipped right into the UNO (also from DX. Loaded the 'hello world' program and it worked right away. No fuss, no problems....
    Cons:
    as said, pins a bit bend during transport it is the one without the sd slot, but i can hardly hold that against this board

    great

    posted by asgar5 on 03/23/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cheap and small. in fact it works right out of the boc. Beware of the fact that it need 3.3 volts, not 5 volts. I had it laying around for some tiem and decided one day to just solder it together on an arduino type shiled. Was one in no time and worked imme...
    Cons:
    if any, the soldering is a bit fiddly, but it seemed to work ok if I first took a pieve of sturdy wire, tinned it. Put it in on...

    Great buy

    posted by asgar5 on 12/03/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    With this amount of cables for this price one wld be a fool to go make yr own cables. It is a lot of cables, various length. Good soldering quality, well constructed. Went easily in my breadboard with a snug fit. No plastic smell whatsoever
    Cons:
    I really cant see any cons. What could be wrong with a bunch of cables? Well construction ofcourse but I already poined out co...

    Very satisfied

    posted by asgar5 on 12/03/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The board was a bit smaller than I expected, which is only good. Soldering quality was very good. Liked the fact that a USB cable was supplied. At moments like this it is a Plus that the board is fed from the USB so I could go testing immediately. Nicely fi...
    Cons:
    Actually, no, I cannot think of any 'con'. The fact that it is labeleld as 'Arduino' instead of 'Dxuin compatible with Arduino'...
