This review is from: SainSmart UNO R3 Starter Kit with 16 Basic Arduino Tutorial Projects for Beginner (1602 LCD included) (Electronics)
This kit comes with all the components you need to start learning Arduino and open source hardware development. The problem I had with this kit is that it came with no instructions. I ended up having to do some searches to find the documentation and 16 example projects. Eventually I found them at the Sain Smart website, available on this page: [...]
After getting the instructions, programming was a breeze and everything worked as described. There are a couple of things that I would do to this kit to give it a 5 star rating:
1) The wire assortment doesn't contain very many long wires so its hard to use the entire space of the breadboard.
2) The LCD does not come with header pins. You will have to solder your own pins.
3) Some of the examples/tutorials use parts that are not included with this kit.
Other than those things, I think this is a good kit for a beginner.
