Beware it is not coming with a USB A-B cable ... Beware it is not coming with a USB A-B cable, you have to buy that separately! It was an urgent order and I am very frustrated that I am not able to use it, who is using USB A-B nowadays anyway?! I have a dozen different USB cables at home, but none of that.
Worked right out of the box Within 5 minutes I had this Arduino up and running with no issues at all. Highly recommend.
Buy at least on real Arduino Buy at least on real Arduino. They made it possible for us to have the others and it's great for troubleshooting. (My stickers did come mis-cut though)
Excellent Product 5 stars because the product works great and even came with a nice clear plastic back plate. I was able to upload my code and had it working within minutes!
Support innovators, don't buy Chinese copycats. Fantastic. Really looking forward to learning more about programming controllers. As an engineering student this is something they don't teach you nearly enough of, so i picked this up as a side project.
Item came with a small carrier case that can easily attach to a breadboard Item came with a small carrier case that can easily attach to a breadboard. Makes the prototyping for the circuit very simple.
I Got Legit Board
The board I received is a legitimate board. Everything is in good order. A note. This is a fun accessory for the Arduino: data-hook="product-link-linked" class="a-link-normal" ="/Pulse-Sensor/dp/B01CPP4QM0/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_rvw_txt?ie=UTF8">Pulse Sensor The PulseSensor let's you put your heartbeat or your heartrate into your Arduino project.
Great electronic learning tool It is a well designed diverse board. A great learning tool for someone new to building electronic devices. A little bit of a learning curve to get the programming down.
Good board w/ a nice extra. Works as it should, came with a slick plastic holder, identifies as an Uno R3 to all IDEs. Quite happy for the price.
Best open source board Ardu board, is a product that does not need credentials, is a best open source board and can be used for the most DIY applications.
and updating the hardware amazingly easy. I highly recommend for anyone interested in playing ... This thing is the coolest. This is my first arduino (having previously only worked on WiPy's and industrial embedded devices). Being a creature of habbit, I was uneasy about using the accompanying IDE at first (preferring vim and my command-line), but once I gave it a shot it made compiling, debugging, and updating the hardware amazingly easy. I highly recommend for anyone interested in playing around with hardware hacking!
What can I say, an Arduino is an Arduino! What can I say, an Arduino is an Arduino. Although this is pretty expensive for a microcontroller, I recommend buying the legit one to support the Arduino foundation. So we can get more amazing stuff like this. The Uno is a great little device that's pretty easy to get up and running quick. Even for an absolute beginner. The vast amount of documentation and tutorials for this will help you get from a beginner to a pro nice and quick. It arrived unbroken and nicely packaged. I've nothing to complain about, it's a great product!
Great for Kids I purchased this for my son as he likes electronics. I know that this isn't in the game category, but what a great tool to help kids learn to program and how components. There is a lot of information on the web that helps teach children. I can't say enough about how much my son likes this.
They work.... Bought two, both work perfect and came with a plastic base that attaches to my breadboard, what else is there?
Authentic Audrino UNO board Seller was Mp3Car. An authentic Audrino UNO board made in Italy at a great price. Shipped promptly. Can't beat that... :-) The board I received on 1/16/2017 was a genuine Audrino UNO (audrino.org) board in the newer green/blue color. I went to the Audrino counterfeit site and verified details that it was authentic and all identifications checked out.
Product as expected. Recieved a genuin Arduino. I don't know what others are talking about that they didn't.
I enjoy seeing computer code turn into real word changes I am really enjoying learning programming for the first time. I enjoy seeing computer code turn into real word changes, even something as simple as blinking an LED or pressing a button to return data to the program.
Great Product Authentic and works great. Already created a few projects with this model. I highly recommend using the official Arduino website for learning and support. Shipping was prompt and the unit was pristine.
It's legit, good price. This board came fast with original packaging and anti-counterfeit decal. Works perfectly and checked it against counterfeit tip videos and it checks out. Great deal!
It does not include a cable. It does not include a cable. In the questions and answers part, seller says he includes one. That's why I gave 4 stars. I am not an expert but the item seems original to me.
Frustrating fun If you get into this it can be addicting, but not expensive. Everything in this kit can be replaced for $20 down to $2 but it's actually pretty rugged and can take a lot of abuse and/or mistakes. The one thing I learned the hard way was that the power supplied by the USB from your computer is enough to power the UNO board and a few (a bunch but they dim as you add) LEDs but not enough for even the motor that came in the kit. It will run but with no speed or power. It says that you can use up to 20vdc external power but be aware that voltage is passed on to your breadboard. I bought and used a 12vdc power supply that didn't harm the board, made the motor buzz like crazy, but fried the LCD. I have since bought but not used yet a 4 pk power controller for just $11.50 and a replacement LCD for$5.70. The external 12vdc supply was just $8.00 and I've also bought and used a temperature humidity chip for $8.60 for a 4 pk and an RTC (real time clock) for $6.25. I suggest you buy all of these if you order either kit. If you are wondering how advanced this is the sky is the limit. If you can load a computer program and transfer files you can be blinking LEDs the same day you get the controller and you can be writing to the LCD almost as quick. Be advised that the schematic on page 116 shows the pin layout of the LCD 1-16 top to bottom but the illustration is real life 1-16 bottom to top. That caused some frustration. The code that you write to make your sketches is very exacting. Capitalization, punctuation, and spelling is critical. You must write everything EXACTLY as it should be or it won't even try to run your program. If you're easily frustrated and not very exacting you might consider a different hobby. To do more than basic stuff you're going to have to learn a lot of code and it's not in English as we know it but if you are willing to learn that you can build way more than just clocks, calendars and weather stations.
