A great, fun project
The MK157 was a great project to put together. Although some of the components are quite close together and the pins connecting the LCD and main board are tricky to solder, it was a gratifying feeling to have a working message board, with a working memory. Any problems you come across with this kit are probably a mis-soldered component, so check your circuit to see what doesn't work. All in all, a fantastic kit at a fantastic price.
The kit is probably one or not the best mini-kits to use and play with it works very well and the message memory, scrolling and pausing and spaces make it a good priced message board. Here at maplin it was £5 cheaper than anywhere else and defiantly worth buying. It could have done with a better manual and that is why I am giving it a 4 star rating.
Well, what can i say really? I would say i have the soldering skills to easily make this work and all went well untill i plugged the batteries. There was nothing appearing on the screen so i thought it was my mistake, i checked all my connections with a muli-meter and it all seemed right. Was a shame but i can't do anythink about it now. I won't give it 1 stars because it was fun while it lasted but it could of been better and maybe a better manual would of helped.
