  1. Review by Rodney - A neat LED Matrix Shield! verified purchaser

    A nice neat shield to run a Matric display on an Arduino!
    No need for all that wiring! (Posted on 20/12/2013)

  2. Review by cows - Great for teaching a child to program

    Board is easy to assemble as long as you have a soldering iron.
    It works a treat. I had my son write a program to scroll his name across the matrix. Real easy. (Posted on 19/04/2013)
