    Pros:
    Standard prototyping perfboard. They do not have "breadboard" style strips though, just individual holes (adjacent holes can be bridged with extra solder). These are the cheapest I was able to find on DX.
    Cons:
    Just that because they're made of phenolic, not fiberglass, so they are a little bendy and they stink. But that's completely no...

    Pros:
    These come in handy if you want to connect things with standard male header pins like many Arduino expansion modules like RF, IR, relays, etc. These wires grip square pins well without falling off. These sockets will even grip the round pins of male-male ...
    Cons:
    None really.

    Pros:
    At only 5mA, they are bright enough to hurt your eyes if you look directly into them at close distances.
    Cons:
    None really. They come piled in a little plastic baggie, so the leads may be a little bent, but there is no problem.

    Pros:
    Standard 4-channel relay board. Has transistors for the relay coils, and flyback diode protection. Relays close on HIGH signal, just as you would expect.
    Cons:
    Poor quality through-hole soldering. Some components crooked, flux residue left on board -- you probably want to wipe this off ...
