The Doctor is Out
This is a very well made board. All the holes are where they should be, they're plated through, the silkscreening looks great. There are only a couple of things missing...well, maybe three or four.
The previous version of this board included some miscellaneous components--a resistor, capacitor, one or two LEDs--that are not present in this kit. Are they not needed? Other Arduino proto boards come with these components, and say they are advisable. I could buy my own .1uF cap, small LEDs, etc., but then I wouldn't know where to put them.
That brings me to another thing that's missing from this product: documentation. Any documentation at all, even a single sheet of paper showing where all the parts go and what their function is would be enormously helpful. For example, there's a reset switch (I know that's what it is because it's marked as such on the board). But what about that other switch in the corner that's just marked "Switch"? Here's where documentation would come in handy, guys.
I can't bear to give this nicely made board less than four stars, though I'm tempted to give it three because of the total lack of documentation...
