  • This is a nice kit. Considering it's been about 10 years since I've soldered anything seriously I was in need of some practice. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. The kit went together very quickly and I think the estimate of 20-40 minutes for assembly time is very accurate.
    I was worried about soldering the ATmega168 first and probably would have preferred starting on a .2 cent capacitor instead of a 4 dollar microcontroller but that's just my preference.
    I'll also back up halconnen with saying that you get only two volumes LOUD and off.
    I'm assuming the extra through holes connections that aren't used are for possibly hooking up a serial programmer so that a person could use a programmer to reprogram the microcontroller once this thing is all put together? Is this true and are there any instructions for doing so?

No public wish lists :(
