Description: Description: Ever wonder what goes on inside these things? Well this clear bread board might enlighten.
Beyond the clear plastic, this is really just a regular, solderless breadboard. It has 2 power buses, 30 columns, and 10 rows - a total of 400 tie in points. All pins are spaced by a standard 0.1". The two sets of five rows are separated by about 0.3", perfect for straddling a DIP package over. The board accepts wire sizes in the range of 29-20AWG.
This board also has a self-adhesive on the back. The boards also have interlocking parts, so you can hook as many together as you’d like.
Dimensions: 3.29 x 2.15 x 0.33" (83.5 x 54.5 x 8.5mm)

This works fine, but I find that wires and components are much harder to see against the clear background. Seeing the metal clips is cool, but I think a white breadboard is much better for everyday use.

This is a pretty breadboard, but the translucency makes it difficult to distinguish where the components are inserted because they have the same shiny color as the contacts in the breadboard. Yes, I am old so that doesn’t help me see closeup. That aside, it took me an hour and a half to set up a multi-array using 9 LEDs, 9 resistors and 9 color-coded jumper wires. Get the white breadboard on this website instead.
Had a heck of a time getting my headers from my Arduino Micro in two of these, but the third one worked fine.
Little trouble getting wires in, but I am using 20 gauge instead of 22 gauge(means I’m using a thicker wire). Great for its value!! Highly recommended!!
TBH, a white board is a little easier to make out pin location, but the two clear boards I bought have worked perfectly, even out in the elements!
My board is functionally fine. No faulty connections, everything is well connected. Looks nice, too.
However, ‘meh’ review is because of how frustrating it is to keep track of connections. Been a pain all project.

…and it works. Why are you reading this?
It was darker than I had imagined, but that’s okay.My biggest problem was it’s functionality issue.Its quite a challenge to get stuff onto it.I actually bought two , but now after using them in comparison with a regular breakboard,I feel I may return them for a regular one.It is very “tight” fitting especially for components, wires not so much a problem. The tight holes bent some mosfets i was trying to place into them,I was almost getting used to these boards when i noticed that my regular breadboard fit the same mosfets quite snug and with little effort.that when i realized that the holes on this were actually very small.
Hi, We have heard from people that these are a bit snugger than most breadboards. If you aren’t satisfied with the breadboard, please contact us and we’ll be happy to help you - https://www.sparkfun.com/returns
This was a replacement for a breadboard I was borrowing. When I set my project up I wasn’t getting consistent battery power to my Imp and was getting varied readings on my multi-meter. I went back to the other breadboard and things worked fine. They work even better on a perma-proto.
