lousy support  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
Bought the kit with more "accurate resistors" and such. Have built several SMD kits and I tested all the resistors and made sure all the parts were mounted correctly. Actually it is easy to build but the case is a pain to machine.
Not the same case on some of the sites' pictures.
No power supply jack or testing terminals supplied though they said that up front.
The breadboard unit shown on one of the pages is nicer. Measured capacitance is totally incorrect and the L/C meter says completely out of range and won't even come on when measuring known coils that are within the range of the meter. Piece O' Junk. I tried emailing DIY and never heard back. Am going to buy a IIB as I should have in the beginning. Like the IIB site says not worth saving the $60.00.

Good for Cost  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I would have given a 5 but....
Quick shipping via USPS.. kit was complete and was working within 30 min. Works VERY well.

Now the "but"
The "Free" case is a blank..and that is OK..but..
I cant see anyway of mounting the board without
"chopping the box to bits"..With that said, I would
buy again and would recommend. I have a deep junk
box so the case is not a problem.
