  • Well I just got mine recently and let me start off by saying it feels extremely sturdy and made of quality plastics; well worth the price. However, I am slightly disappointed in how ‘light’ it is. I was hoping for something a bit more solid/heavy. Such as something that could sit on its own well when plugging/unplugging materials. Now I fully admit that I made the mistake assuming and didn’t fully research the product, and due to the low price I just said heck with it. i.e. I don’t actually fault this product for that as it was merely my assumption or hope that it was, but just be aware that this is more like a ‘frame’ than a ‘base’. That being said, it is a GREAT product for what it is and the price, and it does have screw holes in the center; allowing it to be screwed down so something more solid like a piece of coated MDF for example. This product is perfect for holding an Arduino, an Uno in my case, and a good sized breadboard together.

No public wish lists :(
