Fun Kit July 15, 2008
Reviewer: Joel from Kinston, NC United States  
This was a fun project for someone learning soldering and electronics. It wasn't my first kit, and I'm not sure I'd recommend it as a first if you want to learn to solder. This kit requires you to bend legs on an IC (with excellent instructions), which can be a bit daunting.  I also had occasion to contact the Evil Mad Scientist forum, and found the response time to be really fast, and the reply to helpful.
Would I buy it again, knowing what I know from having built it? Absolutely.
