I finally decided to retire my old breadboard after spending the better part of an afternoon tracking down a circuit fault...that was caused by a loose socket on the board. After playing with this one a couple weeks, I am satisfied with it.

=== The Good Stuff ===

* The chassis is stiff aluminum, which gives the whole board some stability. It resists flexing when you insert of remove a wire/component. The workarea is also reasonably stiff, and the sockets seem to make a good positive contact.

* The unit is a nice size- a little room to spread out.Of course that also results (at least in my case) in sloppy layouts.

* Not really sure about the banana plug issues. I removed them and installed a simple screw terminal strip, which works better for my applications.

=== The Not-So-Good Stuff ===

* I wish there was a way to anchor the board without drilling or other modifications. I hate having a board move around when I am working on it.

* It would have made my day if there were three power buss strips instead of two. Nothing that can't be worked around, but I always seem to have a dual voltage chip or two that messes up my neat layout.

=== Summary ===

I am happy so far with this board. It seems "reasonably" robust, at least in this age of cheap electronics Time will tell how well it holds up.

This breadboard does its job just fine. The people who claim the banana jacks are flimsy apparently have never learned how to use a crescent wrench. If you tighten them down with a crescent wrench, they're perfectly sturdy. I was happy to see that they really are good quality. I expected people who would buy this product to be able to figure out that they need to tighten the nuts with a wrench, but apparently I was wrong. As a result, I'm more happy with this product than expected. The only improvement I can think of would be for them to have a lug specifically to connect a ground wire to the backplane. That said, you can use an alligator clip to do that when you need to.

This board also can be expanded with the individual non-mounted breadboards of the same length, also sold by Amazon. I have an additional one attached (the edges of the boards allow you to lock them together). I may add another one later to make for a nice, very large proto surface.

Good product, reasonable price. Recommended.

This is a really great product at a really good price. I jumped into Arduino based projects a few months ago and after a while I realized that the small breadboards that are standard are just not enough. This really makes creating larger projects easier, as well as multiple at once.

If you are working with any kind of electrical micro controller projects this is a must buy.

Solidly made with a metal base. Much more solid that the plastic or pressboard bases on some others. Good quality breadboard modules. Wires plug in easily and are held nice and snug. I modified mine out of the box. Never really had the need for the binding posts so I left those off, mounted a power supply board and LCD module across the top instead. Now I have a real nice little development board to play with. Could use a little more diversity in the jumper wire kit, lots of little short ones that really don't have a lot of uses. Didn't bother me since I use much better pin terminated jumper wires.

Better than I thought it would be. The terminals are a little tricky to install because the lip on the plastic is very small but that only has to be done once. I expect to get a lot of use from this experimenting with different active components. I also purchased the Elenco boxes of parts (capacitors, resistors, diodes, LEDs, and transistors, which give a good selection of parts for a lot of experiments.

This is a very nice breadboard that is just a little bit shy of being great.

First, it would be nice if the base were heavy metal instead of cheap plastic.

Second, it would be nice if the posts were pre-attached like they are in the pictures. You have to do this yourself.

Great size, lots of room for multiple simple projects or a few larger ones. I am mainly using it with my Arduino Uno, but
I also used it to breadboard a 555 timer circuit that ended up being constructed to blink my Xmas lights. I have smaller units
but this one is my favorite, more tiepoints equals more fun.

This is my favorite breadboard / prototyping area. I really like the three standards size breadboards along with the power rail together. I now have two of these, and if I need more, this is what I'll be buying.
