  • 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 :(
