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

    Pros:
    Great little board for prototyping circuits with more than enough points for projects on the smaller side. Have not found a hole with a faulty connection yet. Adhesive backing on the board so you can stick it to a surface if you need to.
    Cons:
    Good for small projects but a bit small for anything of a decent size. Especially if you have larger components (digital displa...

    Great switches

    Pros:
    Very good quality, haven't come across a faulty button yet. And besides, considering the amount of buttons you get for this price, I wouldn't be too worried. They feel sturdy and have a good click to them when pressed.
    Cons:
    Not really a con, but I have more than I'll ever need. I did have to bend the pins a bit for it to fit in a breadboard (the pin...

    Great LEDs

    posted by bumblenuts on 04/26/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Low price considering the number of LEDs you get. These LEDs are high quality and come in four different colors. Much brighter than the picture shows - the light also seems to be directed upwards so they're more visible from the top.
    Cons:
    Green, white and blue run at the same voltage whereas red is a lower voltage. Make sure you take note of this before wiring the...

    Great wires for a micro-controller

    posted by bumblenuts on 04/26/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Pretty high quality, comes in a ribbon of ten colors. Fits well into a standard breadboard with minimal play. I have pulled apart the ribbon to use in groups and individual strands - they came apart easily. I have used these on the GPIO header of the Raspbe...
    Cons:
    - A bit of a petroleum smell - Price could be a bit less - I've found that some of the connectors are a bit loose on the wire a...
