        Comments about RadioShack Make: Ultimate Microcontroller Pack w/ Arduino® Kit:

        I thought that the pack was carefully compiled to include all parts that I need to complete some common starter tutorials. But after one day of paying around with it I'm thinking that they just put almost random stuff into it and some really useful parts like relay, mosfet transistors, ProtoShield prototype expansion board are absent. Btw picture on the box showing ProtoShield! Included servos look very cheap and they sound really strange (crunching like gears are brocken).

        I'd recommend to order parts separately. I didn't compared prices for all parts, but it looks like you could also save some money.

                This is just what I needed to keep me busy during summer break. Hopefully will give me a jump-start back into robotics, might even program my own speedo/tachometer/enduro computer for my dirtbike.

                As far as it not coming with a USB cable... seriously you are complaining??? I have literally dozens sitting around in various boxes, under the couch, under the mattresses, in the garage, under the front seat of the car....

                  Great kit. I had purchased a basic stamp kit for twice as much and had half as much stuff. Super easy to learn and easy to program. Very fast. With in 2 hours I had built and programmed a Temperature sensor with a display and a safe and unsafe zone to use to shut a PC off if it gets to hot in the room. Only down fall is there are no part specifications on the parts like the Thermistor just says 503 on it. Google has a 503 one but it looks totally different and the range isn't the same. But that's the worst of it.

                          Personally, I wanted to get back into microcontrollers after years away from them - maybe experiment with robotics and automated control applications also. So far, I'm very impressed with this kit overall.

                          While not "throw-away" priced, it would be hard to put together a similar, custom kit for less money. It's also convenient to have so many parts in one kit ready-to-use. The Arduino is really impressively easy to use - much moreso than my earlier uController experiences with assembly language. :) Kit provides a wide range of components, sensors, basic servos, motors, etc., to experiment and create rapid prototypes.

                          I agree that it would be nice to either have a USB cable of the right type included or explicitly mention that one isn't included. It would be nice also if the 9V battery connector were already soldered together - no point making that the only must-solder bottleneck. Finally, the jumper wires are great to have but in my opinion could fit more snugly into the breadboard holes.

                          Overall, a great and well thought out kit at a reasonable price. (Incidentally, mine came with the R3, and it seems likely that having NO Arduino included was a fluke that could be readily corrected by exchanging the product for another of the same - not an indicator of poor quality or low attention to detail overall.)
