    I commend Sparkfun on exceptional build quality and a decent price but I have one complaint. The width of the board does not allow for seamless, edge to edge arrangement, at least on the dozen I ordered. The LED matrix supplied measures 31.9mm but the board is 33.8mm. The gap won’t effect my project but if I was anticipating building a scrolling LED sign it would have been an issue. Another manufacturer’s board measures 32mm so it was much easier to eliminate the gap or at least make it not as noticeable. I decided to go with the Sparkfun board because the MAX7219 was an original part, the other board supplied a knockoff and I had a hard time eliminating flicker and random dots (not a power supply issue).

    Would there be a chance of getting a side photo with the vertical dimensions? I’m building a panning camera controller to add motion to a Dropcam, it would be nice to know the vertical dimensions so I can design the enclosure.

No public wish lists :(
