The jumper wires are a bit thin and flimsy...I wish the prongs on the end were a bit more solid, but they make good connections still. The breadboard breaks into four pieces, (two power bars and two busses), so you can arrange it how you like, (I moved both power busses to the one side so the other side is open). You have to cut the foam adhesive underneath to separate the boards, but that's easy.

Overall, a great little breadboard that's easy to use and modify.

I bought it for my Arduino projects - I did not buy a kit, but Arduino Uno R3, this set of wires with bread board, motor shield and sensors. Initially I thought I can manage without the bread board and wires - make them from old electronics. But it appears that fine holes in Arduino wants fine ends of the wires. I found this particular set the most cost efficient - you get enough wires for projects with minimum price. Also, I would say that wires are very useful all around - I use to connect them to battery box, motors etc: their fine tips are pretty sturdy and solid, you can squeeze them between contacts (on motor, for instance). So, I found a lot of use for them.

The jumper wires were nice. The breadboard had some issues...

The spacing between the two central rows (where you put an IC) seemed out of spec.

The GPIO to breadboard converter from CanaKit would not fit this breadboard. It worked fine on every other breadboard. However, on this one the spacing between the middle rows was too great. I was, however, able to fit seven segment LEDs on the middle rows. I did not try other ICs, but you could likely make them fit. However, I think I would just buy a different breadboard that had proper spacing.

This is a standard 400 point breadboard for a small-ish project. I didn't have any problems with the wires, the middle of the wires seems to be of fibre copper, and the ends are tinned solid wire. It also fits 22AWG wire well, which I prefer to keep a project looking clean.

First of all - a breadboard should be for people who either know what they’re doing, or want to learn.

There are a number of stupid 1 star reviews like - “Wires came out with first use“.

EXCUSE ME???? This is for setting up a trial/prototype circuit. The wires are meant to go in and come out easily.

Or - “TINY” - Duh!

READ THE DISCRIPTION - Dimensions: 84 x 55mm (3.31" x 2.15").
That’s just over 3 1/4 inches long.
That’s just over 2 inches wide.

.
**Here’s what you need to know if you’re going to order this board.**

1)If you’re going to do a lot of prototyping or experimenting, get a bigger board. The RioRand 9440 Breadboard-Prototype Design Aid would be a very good choice. Please note that this small board is only $6+, the RioRand9440 is almost $30.

2)This is mass produced to sell at the lowest price. Some of the wires *are* a little hard to insert *the first time*. After one or two times, they go in easily enough.

3) On some of the holes, the wires feel too loose. This concerned me so I used a multimeter to test about 30 loose holes. No problem, wiggling the wires in the holes didn't make it loose continuity..

So, cheap, yes.
Usable, yes.
REAL problems found, no.

Just don't pi$$ and moan when you buy the cheapest product around, and then find that it isn't absolutely perfect.

It **IS** good enough for a small, quick, prototype. It’s CHEAP enough that if you don’t use it again - no big deal.

And people who do a lot of what this board is made for, aren't going to buy this one, they’ll spend a lot more money on a better one.

I'm confused by the reviews complaining about the size. Was the pic with the quarter not up when you bought this? Yes, it's small. It's good for testing things. It's not good for using instead of soldering an actual circuit, or for more advanced work. It's good for little experiments and to test voltage or whatever on components. It's good, not great, and for the price, it is a solid value for testing and experimenting.

This breadboard is assembled well and the connections are all very solid. The jumper wires work great and you get two different sizes with this kit. The breadboard also has some 3M double stick tape on the back so you can mount it to whatever your working surface is. I love making different prototypes with my Arduino and this is the perfect breadboard for prototyping.

Good little breadboard for tinkering with Raspberry Pi projects and Arduino projects. The pinned wires that come with it fit pretty sloppily in the breadboard, but no contact issues. In fact, the wires were a nice addition. I almost wish that they were all uniform length and more reds and blacks, but all in all a nice addition.
