Okay. Decent price. Wires could be better
on April 14, 2013
The small-gauge stranded wire is a little more resistive than I expected, about 0.5ohm for the short length and on average 1ohm for the longer ones. Could be an issue for resistance-sensitive circuits, though not in a way that might damage the components. I ended up making some jumpers from 22awg solid wire of various lengths that lie flat on the board, but the ones included would be perfectly acceptable for most projects.
The breadboard itself is good enough, some of the contacts are a little bit looser than others, but it really only affects the smallest leads. Also be careful not to press too hard, it seems like some of the lanes can get dislodged from the plastic housing without much force. The modular pieces are affixed to wide strips of double-sided tape, so you can attach them to a solid surface easily. I think that's a plus despite assuming this was a single, solid board.
Its an okay product, good as a starter breadboard, but you can find a slightly bigger one with terminals and without jumpers for about the same price.
