So I found out this kit is made by Seeedstudio (based on the logo on the case). I checked their website and they have a wiki with some projects but very little. Some sections such as music are completely blank. The jumper wires are much better quality than the ones that came with my Newsite Arduino Uno R3 kit that I bought off of Amazon. The breadboard however was identical. The servo in the kit doesn't seem to want to turn the whole 180 degrees. It sort of pegs out and jitters a lot and gets warm. I had to modify my code so that it only turned 0 to 163 degrees. But it's a cheapy servo, you can tell anyway. The potentiometer in the parts list looks like one with a knob, but the one in the kit is much smaller and very hard to turn with your fingers. You'll need a small screwdriver to turn it easily. The thermistor is a 50k made by Bapihvac according to Seeedstudio. I found that on their forum so if you need the table to convert resistance to temperature. Go to the Bapihvac site, and select sensor specs, thermistors and then 50K. So overall decent amount of parts, but the limited documentation on their site would make it that I wouldn't recommend it for a beginner who doesn't know what to do with the parts.

Everything came just as listed, sorted in little plastic bags. The breadboard is pretty small but heavy and great quality. This is exactly what I was looking for to help me with learning basic circuitry. I have a feeling I'll get plenty of experience from this little kit.

This is a nice little kit. The box is great quality and everything inside is nice as well. It would be better if the things were labeled. The jumper wires are nice, a majority of them are about 4 inches and then there are some set about 6 inches or so. The bread board is good as well, 30 colums x 10 rows not including the power, which runs along the top and bottom. Both sides of the channel are labeled as well. There is a double sided sticky on the bottom as well. There is a resistor reading sticker that fits nicely on the cover or where ever else you choose. The resistors are hard to read though, it looks like some have a seam in the middle or on the sides that makes it tricky to see the colors if your eye sight isnt the best or are a tad color blind.

I would recommend this kit for anyone who is looking for a low cost kit for the arduino... only complaint about it is the leads for the resistors were made of very thin wire and were a tad bit hard to get into the bread board. One thing that the Amazon listing doesn't mention is the fact that there is a web site with a list of projects for this kit:

Nice kit, arrived on time and in good quality. The box is smaller but more robust and of better quality then I expected and with a bit of rearranging I was able to store my Arduino in it with the rest of the parts. As mentioned by others it would be nice if there were more in the way of documentation. For example it took me a while to locate what the color code for the servo wires are (red +, brown gnd, orange signal), and I had a bit of trouble with the thermistor. All of the examples for using the thermistor assumes a 10k thermistor, this one is a 50k (in hindsight the "503" printed on it indicates this [same numbering system as resistors and other components], but it was not obvious at the time). Oddly the kit does not include a 50k resister so none of the example thermistor scripts will work by using the included parts (it is probably possible to compensate by altering the code, but I am sure it will be easier to just pick up a 50k resistor). I do appreciate the included resistor cheat sheet, it is a nice extra. A bit of documentation would have allowed me to rate this 5 stars.

This small kit contains a lot of components in a nice sturdy green case. The components all seem to be of good quality and work in the small solderless breadboard included in the kit. The components are similar to those found in many of the Arduino started kits allowing for some basic experimentation with LEDs, buttons, switches, detectors, a servo and a buzzer.

Unfortunately the kit itself doesn't come with any sort of manifest or guide beyond a resistor color code chart, so a beginner or first-time user may need to turn to web searches to identify some of the components as they are grouped in a number of unlabeled resealable green pouches. Despite the claim that "It contains everything needed for a first-time user to connect their computer to an Arduino" the kit does not include a USB cable nor a ICSP, so you are on your own to connect your Arduino to a computer.

Overall the kit is a good value if you want a nice small box of common parts, but I would hesitate to recommend it for beginners.

You get a lot of different items to make starting working with Arduino microprocessor interesting. Once you realize that most of the items are well detailed on the seller's web site, using the items is easy. Being from a previous generation I was disappointed at first when there were no details or instruction in the box. But in the end putting all such literature on the web is better.

The contents barely fit in the case, and are thus somewhat unorganized. However it's delivered exactly as stated. Someone more experienced may be able to tell by looking at them, but I found with a little Google'ing you can determine which parts are which.
