Detailed Review:

Overall, the PiFace Digital performed as expected.  Following the directions given in the Quick-Start Guide, I was able to install the appropriate driver software in ~10 minutes; after installation of the tightvncserver package, I was able to use the emulator to control the board.


I would like to have had complete schematics for the board, although the Quick-Start Guide did provide a reasonably detailed description of the inputs and outputs.


The mechanical design of the PiFace Digital was also excellent and included a Bump-On to support the "off-connector" side.


In summary, the PiFace Digital is a solid, usable product for both beginning and experienced users.
