I am a retired elevator repairman. To stay busy, I am teaching myself to write code. This seemed like a good way to begin.
So far so good.
This kit arrived sooner than expected. Everything was well packaged, and the kit has a large variety of components to work with.
I am very pleased and would highly recommend this to others.
A great experience from the very beginning. So excited to discover all the possibilities!

Arrived earlier than expected, awesome little gadget! Everything you need to get started.
I believe there were errors in the pin designations for the photoresistor project. Also in that same project, there was insufficient space on the breadboard to fit the photoresistor with the gels in the plastic holders -- just seemed like a design flaw. Accessible projects though, good explanation of fundamental electrical concepts.
The product works great. I love everything that came in this starter kit. Luckily it wasn’t one of those starter kits that required me to buy additional stuff. Everything I needed was there.
Makes learning so much more relevant when you can see the results directly. Better than just working calculations alone. 100% satisfied, just need to allocate more time to study and do projects.
Good, but a little pricy
The package shipped and arrived promptly. The packaging is excellent. My grandson and I have been working through the projects and I am very pleased with the projects and components.
Excellent product, I'm exiting.
1. The screws supplied with the kit are too long, extend below the bottom of the plastic base and will scratch the surface it's on.
2. The same screws have heads that overlap the circuit board conductors and under some circumstances could short the board.
3. The plastic base cutout doesn't clear the soldered leads that stick down from the board. Consequently the board doesn't sit flat and clamping forces could place stress on the board.
4. The Projects book print is too small and light for easy reading.
5. Some of the text is confusing and should be rewritten by a non technical educator. This isn't rocket science.
Overall, I'm disappointed with the poor quality of the kit.
Thank you! Great service!
Delivered promptly , exactly as ordered .
Super well written material for getting even beginners into the hobby as well as being able to provide a better understanding of the principles.
I purchased 80 of these for use in my Engineering & Robotics Classes. I absolutely love the kits and the manuals that come with them. I modified the projects to add programming levels and assessments that go beyond the manual, but having the manual that clearly explains the base level of the project is terrific (especially for kids who are absent). The multi language support takes the kit to the next level for classroom use. Thanks Arduino for creating such great products.
Unable to access processor on 3 different computers and 2 different cables. Also to different versions of IDE software I can get board info only and online forums left me hanging atm. I have another processor on order.
Wow!! I am VERY impressed with the quality and packaging, and the accompanying book is a great tutorial in Arduino programming.
Great service and the product is super cool. Thanks!
Immediately shipped, this is the kit I have adopted for use in my Arduino-base Intro IoT course.
A little darker text would make this product much more user-friendly to my aging eyes. The document is otherwise excellent!
Fast shipping! Thanks!
Excellent book, material, and instructions to go with an excellent product. Highly recommend!
I purchased the Arduino starter kit. I appreciate that the kit contains everything needed to get going with the projects and the hands on learning approach.
I am a old guy so I found the print in the projects book quite small and bit hard to read. Even so, I am satisfied with the purchase.
Was going to buy raspberry pi from rs online, but suffered awful company policy and customer service.
End up buying Arduino from arduino.cc, fast delivery arrived on time with extra charge, very satisfied.
I love the product so far. I haven't had a chance to dig in. Just one thing to note is that the packaging was poor and the corner of the kit box was smashed in when arrived. I hope that nothing inside broke.
We are using the Arduino as a part of an engineering course for our 11 year old son. He is learning a lot from the manual and on-line tutorials. He seems to really enjoy the coding part of the engineering process. The kit is a great first step into the world of engineering, and it is helping him to get hands on experience in the field.
The starter kit is excellent! The workbook is easy to understand. The projects gave me the knowledge to create my own projects using the electronics in the kit.
The shipping is taking too long.
Shipping was quick, product was in perfect condition upon arrival.
I love the kit! It's a really great introduction to this world of circuts and coding! It's clearly explained, and there are so many fun projects to create.
The starter kit was missing red hook up wire. Other than that I'm satisfied.
I still don't have the product, i ordered through UPS and it´s been 7 days without any update about the wereabouts of the kit, i understand it's an international shipping however if that provider (UPS) is having issues sending internationally, it could be a good idea to remove that option of shipping, the low review is due to that issue since i have no idea how the actual product is or works, but i'll be more than happy to update my review as soon as i can actually try it.
Have not yet received. Its been sitting somewhere for a week now.
I am enjoying my Arduino Uno, great learning tool!
Awesome kit. I love Arduino!
Great for beginners with all required materials
They use a three band 220 resistor as an example in the book for the first project, but they didn't include one in the kit. After half an hour of searching, and alot of head scratching, I realized that some of the four band resistors were 220s so I completed the project in the end, but it was a rather annoying experience overall.
Love it, great introductory material. I’m 36years and all of this is so new and fun to me I can’t wait to do my next project
Our kids 12 & 14 love their starter kits. The projects teach them so much and spark their curiosity!
It’s awesome!! I enjoy using everything!!
