…for my money, I give the kit a 10. With an under $20 price point you cant go wrong. I truly feel that I am getting my money’s worth with this kit. There’s value added from the experience of building my kit and value added from continuous enjoyment of the product after the build is complete. $19.50 (+shipping) is very fair for what you get. This is my second adafruit industries kit and the quality of their kits is excellent. Consistency and quality components are why I give them a 10. I also received what I ordered and all parts were there (nothing missing- no shortages). They say quality will not necessarily sell your customers, but it will keep your customers and I intend to continue to purchase from adafuit for more of their great kits. Adafruit Industries excels in this area. With the TV-B-Gone kit there is an entire site dedicated to the kit. Forum’s, detailed build instruction’s, schematics, design files, and FAQ are all available to the public. I had no problems with my kit, but if I did, I feel confident that I would have received friendly support quickly.
This review nails the many good points with both the TV-B-Gone kit and Adafruit Industries. I had purchased a few other kits from Adafruit before buying a TV-B-Gone, and those kits were just the same way as this one. Adafruit provides top notch parts, and great after the sale support.
