The first thing I want to put out first is that I have bought from SunFounder before.
I purchased one of their Uno R3 kit that came with everything as expected.
So sit tight and read this quick review.

The first thing I did when the packaged arrived was to check inventory.
With this many parts, you should always check if everything is there before you start using the parts.
That said, MOSTLY everything was described as what the Amazon description provided.

Couple of things to point out though.
The tilt switch I received isn't a perpendicular switch that was presented in the Amazon picture--, it is a horizontal switch. Not a bi deal since it should do the same job depending on the application.
Also, the potienmeter isn't the small knob from the picture provided, instead it is a larger blue knob. Which is a good thing since I have a couple of narrow small knobs that are hard to actuate.

When I say 'mostly', I really mean mostly.
The parts I was missing was the photo resistor (light sensor) and 4 jumper wires (I hand counted them).
66 jumper wires isn't a big deal since it is at least rounded up to 70 so I'll let that slide. Plus, we generally have more jumper wires than we should, but you know what they say.."the more the merrier".
But a missing photo resistor is disappointing.

What could have been a five star product is now a 4 star product. The fact that I'm missing a parts means that I'm not getting everything that the product was described as.

However, I do have to give SunFounder some credit. Most brand name kits (and microcontrollers) cost a lot more than what SunFounder offers. My nitpick with the photo resistor isn't a big deal since you can easily find them at a local e-store for less than the dollar.

I ordered this item because of the price, but when I received it and did an inventory of the parts, it was short several jumper wires. After some discussion with Amazon customer service, they refunded the full price, and I ordered a replacement. The replacement was also short several jumper wires as well as the tilt switch. The situation is resolved to my satisfaction, but it should not have required nearly so much effort to do so. Although the price for the kit is good, be aware that you may be spending time talking to customer service to get what you ordered.

this kit came with every thing needed to start bread-boarding. PLUS it is perfect for the arduino micro. over all i am very happy with it and my only complaint is that the potentiometer is very flimsy pins but at the same time stiff when turning.

I got this a week ago and I'm very happy with the purchase. All components are there and everything I've tried works so far.

The LEDs are perfect- not too bright or dim. I have some really bright ones and using all resistors to dim them was a pain.

received exact same number of parts from the picture, I mean I know in China, these things are much cheaper, so I would feel happier if I could receive more resisters as this; but at least amazon is less expensive than radio shack.

This is an ok kit for the price. The bad thing is that not all the experiments are possible due to the mismatch between the elements found in the kit and the ones provided here. For instance the semaphore test can be done only partially as there are no yellow LEDs in there.

great for starting out with. you get a handful of basic items and can learn beginner lesson with them. later on you're gonna wanna get more components for more complex projects, but for simple projects this is really good.
