The board itself is nicely sized (large), and allows for pretty decent sized circuits to be constructed. Basically, it is 4 standard breadboards side by side, with an additional bus strip run horizontally on the top, all connected to a solid backing. 4 binding posts allow for additional external components to be connected. It looks like it should last quite a while if treated well.
The jumper wires are of a very wide length of sizes, and allow for easy color coding when working in complex circuit prototyping. The box the come in (clear instead of the blue shown) allowed for easy organizing of the different sizes.
Overall, it's a pretty good combo, and reasonably priced for the size of board you get. Other than that, it's not too complicated of an item, so there's not really much else to say. 2 Thumbs up!
When putting on the banana jacks notice they are keyed both top and bottom. Line upt the flat ends in the hold when you tighten and they will stay in place.
I'll buy again and won't turn my nose up at Elenco products without trying them.
1. The adhesive on the little rubber feet wasn't up to the task. I ended up having to dot them with some CA glue.
3. The kit comes with 4 feet, presumably one for each corner. Given the size of the board, it would have been nice to have gotten a 5th foot to place in the center for added support.
2. The 4 power terminals, unlike the rest of the board, are... cheap. It's hard to describe what I mean, but suffice to say one notices material quality, or lack thereof, as compared to the rest of the board.
I guess you can consider the added jumper kit either a great value, or an overpriced stand-alone (see Elenco 350 Piece Pre-formed Jumper Wire Kit). You can buy this same breadboard on Amazon for a $1.30 less if you don't want the pre-cut jumper wire set 9440 Breadboard-Prototype Design Aid, but personally I think this wire kit for that price delta is money very well spent... if only for the little parts box*. Needless to say, I'm in the "great value" camp. In fact, if I could get just the case w/ jumpers for $1.30 as a stand-alone, I'd order several more.
*DISCLAIMER. Who knows if this pricing will hold in the future. Do yourself a favor and compare before buying.
I ordered an el-cheapo breadboard here and there, seemed to have messed it up over time, and then used it as a platform for a prototype before developing my PCB. But NEVER was I able to get my entire system under development on one board and looking good until I ordered the Elenco Breadboard set.
I would say that this product falls into the "better" category of "good, better, and best," and that the boards themselves are of better quality than a lot of budget breadboards out there on the Amazon marketplace. The power connectors are of the same quality as the small Radio Shack breadboard mounted on a metal plate - I see no real quality difference between other such components on other products on the market, so when folks say that these connectors are cheap and easily broken I'll have to disagree.
The most convenient thing about this board is that on one unit you can break out into multiple voltages to power different IC's and modules. For example, the 5v and 3.3v logic levels are used throughout my microcontroller-centered design, and if you shop around you'll see that if you're going to integrate newer IC's or modules with something like 5v Arduino logic levels, you'll need to run different buses with different voltages. You can do this all on one board. Also, you can set up voltage regulation circuits for each required voltage / sub-circuit on the board. Finally, you don't have to remove everything on your breadboard to test something out again, because there's so much room here!Read more ›

Looks goood, works good, I would buy it again....Cheapest price in town! Thanks...Published 29 days ago by Amazon Customer
This is a great breadboard. You can really build quite a few things on this. It is big enough for all of your undergraduate electrical engineering lab projects, I am sure. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Ilian A. Deering
