    Works great

    Pros:
    Really accurate! Like, very accurate, down to .5 degrees. This is fantastic if you're using it for something like a digital thermostat like I am. Really happy with this module and it even has a built-in LED that blinks when Arduino requests the temperature ...
    Cons:
    None, really. It does everything as advertised and you can't argue with the price. The PCB board saves you a lot of trouble.

    Good motor driver

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Does its job. This module is most useful because you can drive two DC motors or one stepper motor. I chose to just drive one DC motor, and it worked great. Look up the wiring in the forum.
    Cons:
    Can't power higher-current motors. Make sure to check if this thing can put out the amps that your motor needs to get things do...

    Fantastic- will buy more!

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

    Pros:
    These are great. Have made my Arduino experience so much easier. I bought a ton of modules from DX (IR receivers, temperature, etc.) and these allow me to just snap these right onto Arduino. They're great quality, you can feel that they form a tight fit wit...
    Cons:
    They can be a bit short for your needs. On the upside, they can be "daisy-chained" together to form a wire as long as...

    Does its job

    posted by ppsieradzki on 11/11/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    As advertised, it works with Arduino well to receive an IR signal. The PCB board is welcome since I has an integrated LED and you don't need to plug in resistors and such. Great value, and none of the hassle!
    Cons:
    I'm not sure if I just had bad luck, but after 2 days of being used, it started struggling with picking up a signal. According ...

    Perfect

    posted by ppsieradzki on 11/11/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Well, it does its job without frying the Arduino, which is its job! Not much more could be asked. Good build quality and it is clear that this will last you a while. The LED indicator is a nice touch as well.
    Cons:
    None. The LED is both a good thing and a bad thing. I chose to tape over it with electrical tape, but you might not get bothere...

    Thumbs up!

    posted by ppsieradzki on 11/11/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Does exactly as expected and actually much smaller than I expected. The slots to connect the power line you wish to control are close together though, so keep this in mind.
    Cons:
    The LED on the board is extremely bright. I didn't think I would have to do this, but I might just have to wrap each one of the...

    Just as advertised

    posted by ppsieradzki on 11/11/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Man these are strong! Great build quality, very good case design. Just as advertised, right down to the length and shaft diameter.
    Cons:
    A bit noisy, but this was sort of expected given that it is a gear assembly transforming the speed of the DC motor into slower ...

    Great product!

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

    Pros:
    Great LEDs. Really directional, so be sure you want these for spot lighting, not flood lighting. As with all LEDs make sure you have voltage and current regulated, or else you might burn them out! They seem quite resilient though.
    Cons:
    None. They're nice and big (as I wanted) and really bright.
