The most complete starter Kit with high quality components and sensors
Quantity and quality are both important here in Elegoo MEGA 2560 starter kit. The most essential parts in this kit are MEGA 2560 controller board and expansion board, which is a perfect Arduino clone with excellent product finish. Besides, we offer other over 60 kinds of components and sensors from small parts like LED diodes, resistors and potentiometer to big parts like LCD1602, RFID module and 830 tie-points breadboard, which meet your demands for your different projects either it is simple or complex.
Sturdy quality is definitely the most important thing to Elegoo even with so many components provided we never compromised on the quality. Instead we keep improving our product quality in our own factory and we produce the products by ourselves under high standards and strict quality control. Pins and wires on some of the parts like LCD16502 and motors have been pre-soldered which is very convenient and saves your time.
LCD1602 Display module
LCD1602 module is a display that has an LED backlight and can display two rows with up to 16 characters on each row. You can see the rectangles for each character on the display and the pixels that make up each character. The display is just white on blue and is intended for showing text.
Lining up the display with the top of the breadboard helps to identify its pins without too much counting, especially if the breadboard has its rows numbered with row 1 as the top row of the board. Do not forget, the long yellow lead that links the slider of the pot to pin 3 of the display. The 'pot' is used to control the contrast of the display.
DC Motors and L293D Transistor
In this project you will learn how to control a small DC motor using an UNO R3 and a L293D transistor, which is a very useful chip. It can actually control two motors independently. We are just using half the chip in this lesson, most of the pins on the right hand side of the chip are for controlling a second motor.
L293D is quadruple high-current half-H drivers and designed to provide bidirectional drive currents of up to 1 A at voltages from 4.5 V to 36 V. The L293D is also designed to provide bidirectional drive currents of up to 600-mA at voltages from 4.5 V to 36 V and drive inductive loads such as relays, solenoids, dc and bipolar stepping motors, as well as other high-current/high-voltage loads in positive-supply applications.
74HC595 Shift Register and LEDs
74HC595 is a Serial to Parallel Converter which has eight outputs (perfect) and three inputs that you use to feed data into it a bit at a time.
This chip makes it a little slower to drive the LEDs (you can only change the LEDs about 500,000 times a second instead of 8,000,000 a second) but it's still really fast, way faster than humans can detect, so it's worth it!
74HC595 shift register is a type of chip that holds what can be thought of as eight memory locations, each of which can either be a 1 or a 0. To set each of these values on or off, we feed in the data using the 'Data' and 'Clock' pins of the chip.
Elegoo Inc. is a professional manufacturer and exporter that is concerned with the design, development production and marketing of Arduino, 3d printers, raspberry pi and STM32. Our Dream is to make the best price and best quality produce for customers. So we would like to receive your valuable suggestions for our products and we can improve them for you.

The kit I received was missing an RGB LED, but I emailed Elegoo, and they immediately sent out a replacement, but in the highest amount of style possible - they sent me five RGB LED's, another USB cable, and a dandy plastic organizing case. Their support is top-notch and responsive.
Some other complaints are around getting started and using the product with the instructions provided. I was able to install everything and control an LED light with sample code in 8 minutes, not kidding. But you have to realize this is not a kids toy, these are real engineering components here. Its up to you to learn, problem solve and create what you want from the components as opposed to being a step by step kit. That's the whole fun of it. Those with a technical or engineering background will be at an enormous advantage.
You must learn how to program using C code and research how the components work. For example, I was unable to get the stepper motor to work from this kit with the example stepper motor code that comes with Arduino IDE. But that's because the example code is for a different stepper motor and there are many different kits out there with different types of stepper motors. I took me two hours to learn about stepper motors and was able to write my own code to control it. I'm lucky to have an engineering background with a little bit of C code experience so I could see someone taking much longer to figure out the stepper motor issue or giving up completely. If you really want to learn Arduino, you can. Be patient, buy books like Programming Arduino by Simon Monk, browse forums, watch YouTube tutorials, etc.
So I'll summarize by saying that this is a great product and ships as advertised. I suspect many frustrations are because this is a fairly advanced kit and not a toy. Thank you for reading my review and good luck.
UPDATE: I spent more time going through the sample code provided by Elegoo and the stepper motor code they provided works perfect. My comments above were based on my grabbing the code that comes with Arduino IDE which was incompatible. Again, I think the kit is great. Probably most negative feedback coming from misunderstanding how to use everything.
The breadboard has a short between power and ground (!) on one side, which at best makes your project fail, and at worst could quickly ruin just about anything you connect to it, including possibly even your PC. The SG90 servo included in the kit sweeps sporadically sweeps 360 degrees when its input falls between 0 and 6, which is clearly a defective part (probably a problem with the potentiometer), since the servo is not supposed to be a continuous rotation device.
There are a good variety of components in this kit, but there's no way I'd pay $60 for a learning kit where I waste so much time tracking down broken parts every 30 minutes. And now what's my next step, do I send the whole kit back every time there's at least one part defective, which statistically seems highly likely?
The supplier has shipped a replacement kit. I'm immediately set at ease somewhat by this; will edit this review again when I've tested some of its components.
The documentation can be less than perfect in places. Essentially they have just copied the documentation that's available on Arduino.cc. So sometimes that documentation references a board that's got a different pinout from a Mega, ie SPI communication.
For all the prototyping work that I do, I know this kit has the parts I'll need.
