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

    Pros:
    - There is 10 of them in the package! - Quite cheap, you can buy it even if you don't need them right now - and you will NEVER run out of them! - Different shapes, so more chance you can easily fit them
    Cons:
    - They are VERY small, much smaller than the usual size of these pads

    Very precise, excellent quality!

    posted by bokorn on 10/20/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Very precise thermometer, you can read the actual value directly from the sensor, no need to depend on more or less accurate voltage dividors, under/overheating, etc - Only 3 pins needed (and only 1 for communication), extremely useful if you have few av...
    Cons:
    A bit pricy, but otherwise no cons.

    Easy to use

    posted by bokorn on 09/24/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Very easy to use, no additional HW needed in the circuit, just plug it in the breadboard, connect and use - The three pins make it very flexible to use, you don't have to solder it in, you can use it even with a normal 3-pin cable - Good build quality
    Cons:
    - Quite expensive, the sensor itself (without the nice little board) is much cheaper

    Just as in the good old times...

    posted by bokorn on 09/24/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Good build quality, nice soldering - The pins are already connected and soldered in. Considering the dangers of the simple bubble wrap packaging, this may be a con... - 100% compatible with the standard displays you can find in Arduino tutorials
    Cons:
    No real cons, except maybe the pins (see above, as a 'pro') Ah, and the LED lighting could be more diffuse, but it's not so bad

    It's quite expensive :-/ could be cheaper no other cons
