    Good value

    posted by zimmund on 11/13/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    It's a lot of resistors, with different values each stripe. Very useful for personal projects. Reasonable accuracy.
    Cons:
    The values wrote on the resistors were cryptic. I ended up rewriting each stripe (and measuring their values). Some stripes cam...

    Excellent voltage regulator

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

    Pros:
    The LM2596 is an excellent IC. The output is quite steady and clean. I'm using it with a pack of batteries to feed servos (5V) and the output remains around the same voltage throughout the life of the batteries. It may have a slight variation, but it's ok f...
    Cons:
    My unit came with a broken potentiometer. I desoldered the original and placed a similar one (same resistance value). It looks ...

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    It's lightweight and easy to fit on your projects. The cable is just the right length to connect it to the Arduino and don't geting in the middle.
    Cons:
    It feels cheap. It's not quality plastic (but it's more than enough for what it is anyway). The price is a bit over what it sho...
