I used them for a project I was making with a Raspberry Pi. They worked great. They do not fit tight onto bread board, so I held them in place and used a little hotglue to hold them tight to the bread board.
I like the sound they make with used, it helped debug my project
The the pinout is not on 0.1" centers - even though the DS shows multiple of 2.54mm which should be 0.1"
The NC Pin is the worst of the error. I bought 3 - all the same way. Barely works on a protoboard, but on a breadboard the relay just wants to pop out.
