Fast, Good Value, Fun - Not to Learn Programming WithReview by H.
Great product. The shipping and the price were excellent. No issues, and I'm learning a lot about arduino.
You can use this product if you are a complete novice programmer, however, it will teach you basically nothing about programming.
Their target appears to be new electronics enthusiasts with some programming background. Minimal programming experience is sufficient.

Fast Shipping! Product as good as expectedReview by Hallyson
I recommend this product. It arrived fast and has a good quality. Just as expected

Fast Shipping! Product was just as described!Review by Igor
I received my product very fast after I ordered it!
Arduino has high quality products, which I already knew, so it is a great starter kit to get into programming/robotics, etc...
I bought it mainly because of the projects book, I wanted to get a solid foundation on this stuff, so I bought the kit to have the book to guide me.
One thing I noticed with the book, is that some pages are kind of loosely binded, I mean this does not affect the learning experience, but just something I wish was better.
I recommend this product to anyone interested in robotics, tinkering with microcontrollers.

Excellent Arduino kitReview by Jerry
I had to get the official Arduino Starter Kit for a class I'm taking that follows the 15 projects. I already had an Arduino and had done some related work, but the kit is the only place I found to get the Arduino Projects book. With shipping the components alone would probably cost more than the kit if bought individually, so it was a good value regardless.
I took the class for a specific application, and the fifteen projects gives a person a good general understanding of the Arduino and its programming. Highly recommended.

SuperReview by Tongkat
Bought the Arduino kit for my son as a Christmas gift and it has turned out to be a hit. Both he and I enjoy learning and creating. Great product, fast delivery and painless process. Plus the website is very well laid out and easy to navigate. There are tons of products available - almost limitless. Highly recommend RobotShop to anyone with an inquisitive and technical mind

Great kit for novicesReview by rootofgood
Just purchased the kit and am now working on project 7. It comes with enough supplies for the projects in the book and to make a few of your own too.
The book explains a great deal of knowledge with electronics and coding. On a side-note the Arduino website reference page goes more in depth with structures, variables, and functions just in case one were to purchase this kit and be confuse with the programming elements.
I recommend purchasing this kit to anyone who wants to get their feet wet and explore. I'm loving my time with the Arduino.

Great kit to get to know about electronics and programmingReview by Ali
Wanting all my kids to be computer/technology literate, I bought this kit for my son to get him started. Set-up and getting to the first project was clearly explained and easy. My son did encounter a problem on the second project - "Spaceship" where the code sample in the book kept compiling with an error. Turns out when you retrieve the code from within the Arduino window, the code is different: it didn't have the offending code error as it did not include the INPUT from the book. We're plodding along having lots of fun and hope that there will not be anymore errors. Despite this, I highly recommend this kit.

So far so good.Review by Pierre
I have done 5 projects out of the 15 so far. Documentation is of excellent quality and the item work no problem.
Only small issue is that the instructions in some projects call for 220 Ohms resistors but the kit has what looks like 221 Ohms resistors; the last bands looks like it's dark brown instead of black. Maybe my eyes are deceiving me as men my age start having color blindness issues :p

A great starting pointReview by Sarah
My husband was thrilled to receive the Arduino starter kit as a birthday gift. He built some projects in the book right away and has been coming up with all sorts of plans for his own. It's a great launching point.

The perfect start for the Arduino adventure!Review by Stéphane
I received the order in 3 days and was able to start completing the nice sample projects suggested in the Arduino starter kit.
I recommend it to anyone interested in software and hardware.

Everything you need to start learning Arduino!Review by Todd
I received this very quickly from Robot Shop and I'm very pleased. It was my first endeavour into learning Arduino, a very nice bundle of goodies was available to start with and the book is very helpful and well written.
I'll recommend this to anybody else interested in hacking electronics.

Complete and niceReview by Martin
You get introduced to electronic basics through simple projects. I had a bit of a hard time downloading the compiler (it got stubbornly stuck at 99% download) but I managed to install it. I figure it had more to do with m'y antivirus or something lime that.
Really nice product!

A MUST HAVE FOR ANYONE WANTING TO LEARN ABOUT MICROCONTROLLERSReview by Vito
Just got this delivered (very quickly I might add) and was almost floored with how well packaged this kit came across, everything packed has a purpose 15 projects you can dive in for hours of fun and excitement. A great tool indeed to learn about the arduino and and it the guide wont disappoint as it is in colour for easy reading, the code can by type but you can find them online to copy and paste into the IDE. I would definitely reco this kit to anyone. Just pick up a 9v battery for on the go fun.

Very Clear, Concise, and FunReview by Curtis
The starter kit has everything you need to get started on your way to understanding electronics. Having worked with other microcontrollers, I can strongly recommend the Arduino Uno and its associated support documents for beginners and intermediates alike.

Good way to learn basicsReview by Chris
Very good beginner kit to understand the basics of a microprocessor. The instruction book is very detailed as previous knowledge of electronic component is not needed.

FabulousReview by Remi
I love it!!! You wish I had enough time to play with it more but it's designed to be used in sizeable chunk with roughly one-hour long projects

Great Kit for any BeginnerReview by Alex
It is a complete starter kit for beginners to Electric Circuits and Programmable Micro-controllers.
The Arduino on its own will prove useful for any small project, from simple flashing lights to controlling large automated robots (as in my experience).
The booklet provide several projects to get you learning, but can also prove very useful as a quick reference or for code sample for your own projects.
The components provided are enough to build much more complex circuits and devices than the book describes. For those who want to start learning transistor logic, signal amplification or just see what active components do this kit is great. It does lack some of the common electronic components such as an Op-Amp or a 555 timer; though most clock requirements can be easily programmed into the Arduino.
This starter kit may appear to be geared for High School students, but it is the popular choice for many of the Second and Third year engineering students, including myself, to build control systems for our projects.
...and it does not require very much knowledge before you start.
