    Great Arduino board!

    Pros:
    A very great clone of the Arduino UNO R3. Exact same board layout and parts used as the official one. Fits all the Arduino UNO shields. The quality appears to be very high. This unit works exactly as expected. The female headers are soldered on well.
    Cons:
    The USB socket is a bit fiddly, maybe its the cable that came with it?

    Pros:
    This is a very great microcontroller board and this one specifically is great quality with all genuine parts and no rough edges of the PCB. It works immediately and just as good as the original since it is based off the same PCB files.
    Cons:
    USB port is a bit high for some shields.

    Pros:
    Very easy to use, libraries all over the net make it even easier. Nice quality, compact design. High resolution for an alphanumeric LCD, looks great!
    Cons:
    Would be nice if it came with a driver chip so you didnt have to use so many pins of your MCU.

    Pros:
    Simply wonderful. Works great with PICAXE and Arduino microcontrollers. Good quality. Easy to set up.
    Cons:
    The flat cable is very short and difficult to extend. It is long enough for most enclosed projects anyway though.

    Simple to use, just for Xbox controllers.

    Pros:
    Simple to use, just push on and add glue for sturdyness. They feel just like the real thing and are great for repairing a chewed Xbox controller or for making DIY controls.
    Cons:
    Will only really fit on the joysticks for Xbox controllers without modification.

    Pros:
    Amazing little display to create games for Arduino or for use as a general purpose display for weather station etc. Simple to use as it includes driver IC which has information all over the internet on how to use it with Arduino.
    Cons:
    Backlight is not very bright, can probably be modified. Comes with no documentation, need to search Google for answers.

    Perfect prototyping shield. Great quality, great features.

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

    Pros:
    The quality is great, amazing value. One switch for RESET and one switch for general purpose. Has very useful SOIC pad for surface-mount parts. Supplied breadboard is perfect fir for the PCB. Additional headers at the top of the board provide power for the...
    Cons:
    Surface-mount resistors for the LEDs would make it look much more professional.

    Great, cheap earphones with good sound quality.

    Pros:
    Amazing value. These work just as good as any $50 earphones. Not just for iPod, but for any MP3 player of course (in case the title was misleading).
    Cons:
    The buds are a little hard, so too much listening will make your ears a little sore.

    Simply amazing. Simple, perfect sound.

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

    Pros:
    Very simple and easy to use. Just connect left and right inputs from MP3 player and connect speakers. Doesn't get hot at all, consumes little power, and makes surprisingly loud sound. The best thing is, the sound quality is perfect!
    Cons:
    Small input voltage range. Cannot use supply above 5.5V.

    Very simple sheath for making common 18650s fit some torches.

    posted by nztdm on 08/06/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very easy to use, quite sturdy. Great for making 18650s fit inside C flashlights or flashlights meant to take a 3xAAA adaptor.
    Cons:
    Some 18650s are slightly thicker than others so the thinner ones will just slide out of this and defeat the purpose.
