This one looks like its built very solidly, comparatively speaking to one i recently purchased, namely https://solarbotics.com/product/39290/
The one i purchased overheats the L298 socket in about 20 seconds causing shutdown. (I am running a 12V, 1A Nema-14 Stepper Motor with it, well within the recommended guidelines), Alright, lets go find a heatsink. So i find one off an old motherboard I have lying around the house, drill a hole thru it, and mount the sucker on the shield. Then I glanced at where I have to hook in the Power Wires. sadly I now have to redrill a new hole, and mount this heat shield way off center, and its going to look like … now, all because the power terminals are right where this heat sink needs to be.
Point of it is, this model looks a complete product, not one you have to F with just to get it to work.
No public wish lists :(
