Mike Howard
Amazing value

Got so much SMD soldering practise with this electronics kit for such a low price. I feel ready now to move onto more advanced electronics projects! Going to attempt a gaming console repair this weekend.

Philip Jannsen
Great kit

Took a while to arrive but I was happy once I received it. Great practice for soldering surface mounted devices. Quality components. Highly recommended.

Shayne Andrews
Great SMD soldering practise

With 64 SMD LED's only millimeters apart from one another, this kit gives you great practise at soldering surface mount devices... after soldering 64 times, you're bound to fine tune your skills and abilities to solder SMD's. This kit is primarily for enhancing SMD soldering skills, but the finished device can serve as a nice bright trophy to attest to your SMD soldering prowess. Can be soldered with a heat gun or a fine-tipped soldering iron.

Chandler Cormier

Well packed. Good quality PCB. Correct parts are in the bag.
(Only the assembly work remains ... :-)
