Very good value
on 13 May 2014
Well made and useful board at a very low price. The three main chips are socket mounted which is an added bonus if experimentation knackers a driver. Re the lack of documentation suggested by a previous review. I think this is unfair, the board is essentially the Adafruit unit as documented on the playground. http://playground.arduino.cc/Main/AdafruitMotorShield. and there is a link to as much documentation and examples as anyone could wish for. The Adafruit link is even printed on the board itself!
The PCB also has pin holes in place for adding analog input, making it useful for adding sensors to the shield as well.
I have ordered a second one. I could not build one at this price.
