Must-have, kit OK too  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
The older reviews are about the meter, I got the kit.

Putting the kit together went fine. As the design has gone through a few changes throughout the years, it took a bit of effort to combine all the notes, but assembly only took an hour or two.

If you've ever collected kits together to be built by others you'll know that there are many more details to look at than just providing a bag of components and a diagram. Vicor clearly spent a lot, a lot of time working out subtile details to makr the kit successful: shipment packaging to make sure it does survive in transport, packing components in such a way that chances of accidental substitution are minimal, adjusting for feedback from the builder group..
This kit is a gem in that regard, there are many, many subtile details that have been looked at, up to and including adjusting the legths of the wires to allow for proper routing of both (uneven) paths. I'd recommend getting the kist just to see this.

As to the actual performance, I agree with earlier reviews. Recommended!
