Product Description

This is a handy bundle of 6 items to get you started right away in the world of Newsite. The bundle includes: Newsite Uno R3 (DIP Version), 400 hole breadboard, jumper wires, breadboard and Newsite holder, USB cable and 9V battery connector. The Newsite Uno is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega328. It has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a 16 MHz crystal oscillator, a USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button. It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable or power it with a AC-to-DC adapter or battery to get started. The Uno differs from all preceding boards in that it does not use the FTDI USB-to-serial driver chip. Instead, it features the Atmega8U2 programmed as a USB-to-serial converter

This is a great minimal bundle for starting on the Arduino Uno projects.

It comes with plenty of wires (more than enough), a small breadboard, Uno, Cable, and a nifty little holder that actually helps a lot.

I would highly recommend this kit for anyone interested in learning and getting started with the arduino.

Old men's toys don't have to be expensive but they do have to be awesome and thought provoking. The Arduino Uno is all that and more.

My last foray into electronics was when the telegraph was a new-fangled contraption and my last programming languages were Fortran and Cobol so I was a bit intimidated and not sure whether I should check out this Arduino-thingy.

I got the Uno and a couple of very basic books and, over the course of a couple of weeks, I acquired a couple of servos, which I modified to make continuous rotation, a Ping Ultrasonic sensor and very soon had a small two-wheeled robot running around the floor driving my hound dog crazy. The Uno makes controlling the servos and the ultrasonic sensor a snap even for a 65-year old. I have a long list of future projects to try out and components to find and have taken over half of the dining room table (much to my wife's chagrin). I recommend the Arduino for anyone who has a desire to make things go bump in the night. Thank you for an excellent product.

I can also recommend "Arduino Cookbook" by Michael Margolis, an excellent book.

And by far, it's the best money I've ever spent on a gift for him. He's been able to create some pretty damn awesome things with this Arduino, and I'm glad I purchased it. The only issue he's had is just making sure the software is running properly, but that doesn't have anything to do with the product itself not working correctly.

I was absolutely delighted with the SUPER quality of all the items in the kit.

I've been using insulated solid wire (bits of old 25-pair telephone cable) with the ends stripped back as breadboard jumpers for my old Heathkit solderless breadboard. The problem with using solid wire is that it breaks after being bent too many times. I was always having to make a new batch every so often.

The jumper wires in this kit are a really nice upgrade. They're made of stranded wire with very soft, flexible insulation that allows them to bend easily without breaking. There are several different lengths, which makes for cleaner prototypes when you're working on a large project. Each has solid pins connected to the ends for plugging into the breadboard holes and the ends are nicely finished to exactly the right length with heat-shrink tubing to prevent accidental shorts. I'll be ordering a couple more sets of these and retiring my old solid wire jumpers!

The breadboard is a real class act compared to the low quality versions I've bought from a certain electronics chain store popular in the U.S. The molding is crisply detailed with raised, color printing to identify the power bus holes from component bus holes. Each row of holes is numbered on both sides to aid in identification when you're connecting circuit components and jumpers. The small size makes it conveniently portable, unlike my heavy old Heathkit breadboard with its built-in power supply. The manufacturing fit and finish is excellent.

When I saw the plastic Arduino mounting tray in the product photos, I figured it was essentially just packing material that I'd end up throwing away. I couldn't have been more wrong! This is a surprisingly convenient little accessory.

OK. This is the greatest thing I ever bought.

I really felt like a 12 year old boy playing along with this. Just buy some led, assemble the board, download the software from the internet and start making flashing led's projects. It took me 10 minutes to make a Morse translator (but that's because I know C programming).

The interface, the way you can program it, the things you can do with this... endless possibilities.

If you want to learn basic robotics, control, serial communication and much, much more, this is a must-buy-product. Seriously, it worth every cent you pay for it.

The only improvable, but not bad at all aspect, are the jumper cables, that can be a little messy and fragile some times. Handle them with care and you won't have any trouble.

Oh yeah, and it works in every Operating System on Earth, so don't be discouraged if you use Mac OS X or Linux.

Price between this and the bare arduino uno eslewhere on Amazon was ~$6 more, which probably makes the additional components (breadboard, jumpers, usb cable) worth the difference. However, the received board was the hardware revision2 instead of the rev3 which is current as of this review's date. This means you won't have a few small improvements, and the schematics aren't as available as for a current product. Granted those are small improvements, but they should include revision number in product description in spirit of full disclosure.

This is a very nice kit. For me, this has been much fun; in my job, I 'bring up' new micro-controllers (a very low-level task).
In my opinion the folks putting together the Ardruino have done an excellent job putting together 'input/output' operations, letting folks focus on 'algorithms'. Without the asistance, it can take many hours to bring a kit like this up to a rudementary monitor, let alone launch what I feel is a good basic SDK.

Many thanks to the folks on the Arduino team!

I would recommend this package to anyone wanting to learn about micro-controllers, tasking, interrupts and such. You can still write low-level device drivers if that's your thing.
