Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun Kit I bought this to teach myself soldering, and it's a good kit to start with. Instructions are straightforward, and the PCB is nicely made so it's obvious where everything goes. The overview says 'requires minimal soldering '. I'd disagree with this as there are 427 individual solder joints to make - it took me around 6hrs to put it all together, though a more experienced solderer would be a lot quicker.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No battery holder and R35 is the wrong value! Hi there - not sure if it was just my version but it is supposed to come with a battery holder and connector, however both are absent. It contains three screws to connect the board to the battery holder but not the holder itself. This means it will not stand up on its own - I screwed it to a piece of wood! Also, R35 should be 1k, it is 0? resulting in the three red LEDS on the lower right being too bright. PS - what is a 0? resistor?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not happy A good idea, but there's no circuit diagram, and so when sections of LEDs do not light, you have no idea of how to track the problem down. After soldering all the LED's this is a disappointment
