Dont buy Worthless buy a real Arduino for less March 22, 2013
Reviewer: Joe P from Baltimore, MD United States  
This item just like all items from makershed
Fails to provide any assembly instructions there is nothing in the tin and nothing on the site on how to assemble this or any items they sell for that matter you will also be required to buy other items just to make it work if you do manage to get it assembled

Yeah, instructions. February 15, 2013
Reviewer: David Preece from Wellington, - New Zealand  
Some instructions would have been nice. Even just a link to a pdf would have done. Really not good enough :(

Package was misleading in store January 18, 2013
Reviewer: Angry New Yorker from ,  
I bought this product at Radio Shack and thought it was a good deal. $25 vs. $30 for a pre-made board. Little did I know that there was no way to program the chip until I got home and read the instruction on your website. The package its self mentions nothing about additional components required to make the product actually work in its completeness. This was extremely frustrating, Whats better is I now have to spend $15 more to make it work. The chip also has an annoying sticker on it so the chip number can not be verified before being placed into a programmer board. Will someone from Makershed please assist or advise on what should be done next as I do not want this product any longer and Radio Shack will not take it back. Other than these problems the product has everything listed in the video and to my surprise the components including the breadboard match in close visual likeness making the tutorial easy to follow.

Thank you for reading.

Programming Troubles? October 18, 2012
Reviewer: Joseph Colburn from Salisbury, MD United States  
I acctually purchased the MintDuino Game Pack, but I feel this comment is just as valid here.  If you get the FTDI Friend with this, you'll need to set the board to "Arduino Duemilanove w/ ATmega328" for it to progamme.  Otherwise it will fail and the only error you'll get is "programmer is not responding".  Have fun!

Helped my 14 yr old build it. August 18, 2012
Reviewer: peter churchyard from mount airy, MD United States  
I helped my 14 yr old build it. A link to the build instructions would been good on the tin. Actually any instructions would have been good. Once downloaded the instructions are ok. Hardest part for my kid was trimming the wires.  Put the chip into a UNO to program it. thin nosed pliars, wire stripper and cutter are needed to make the kit.

one more thing.. April 27, 2011
Reviewer: David Kavanagh from Rochester, NY United States  
This could really pinout diagrams for the semiconductors in the lid of the box. That'd be the icing on the cake!
