Detailed Review:

I went into testing this board with little experience in testing eval boards etc and I was surprised with how difficult it was to get used to using this board.


The demos were quite confusing and didn't offer much in the way of explanations that the layperson could understand easily. There were also only a few demos that I found that were actually geared towards things that I would/could actually attempt to do with this board. If given the chance to buy this board I would decline and go for something with more inputs/outputs, I was a little sad that it didn't come equipped with an SD card reader or an LCD screen as those would have made this board much more fun to use.


All in all it's a decent board, the price is a little high for what you're able to do with it though.
