Rated 2 out of 5 by from I have completed lots of kits in the past and this is the first kit that I have tried hasn't worked. The LED lights up as you record and then when you press playback but no sound comes out. Not sure if its a component fault or a soldering issue but either way the Kit must be more difficult than others.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It most probably is my lack of soldering experience but on two same kits I purchased both of them did not work. Funny though as I soldered at the same time about 5 other kits and all of them worked perfectly fine. Maybe this circuit is very sensitive to overheating or I was simply having a bad luck. Shame it did not work :(
