Great product, great service and great delivery.
Nothing to add to that as this covers all the main points of interest to me.

This comes with everything you need to do some simple experimentation and even a few prototyping shields to create a more permanent set-up.
I'd have preferred a longer USB cable, mine was only 0.5 metres which isn't much use. Also I couldn't get the RGB LED to work until I realised I'd been sent a common anode version, rather than the common cathode mentioned in the booklet! These are only minor gripes though. Overall this is perfect for those starting out with Arduino.

Amazing piece of kit. Am now hoping to interface it with the raspberry pi to produce some cool robot-y stuff

This is an excellent kit for getting started with Arduino. I'd looked at various kits similar to this one, and it was both the lowest priced and best in terms of what was included. It contains a good range of components to begin experimenting with, and the included booklet will get you started with some simple and fun projects. I was particularly impressed that Proto Pic haven't scrimped on the contents. You get a decent length USB cable as well as loads of resistors, LEDs, switches and sensors. If you're looking to get started with Arduino, don't hesitate, buy this kit!

This kit is great - I bought it for my brother for his birthday. He's always had a keen interest in programming, and I thought a microprocessor would be a good way to introduce him to embedded systems development. I wasn't sure he was interesting in the electronics side, so the kit was ideal as it had everything he needed to get going. Turns out he loves the electronics side as well, which makes me doubly pleased.
TL;DR Very happy with kit as starter product in embedded systems development

Had fun with this and learned a lot. No guide but the "Getting starting with Arduino" guidebook, available separately I think, was very useful

I'm new to Arduino and electronics in general so this is very much 'square one' for me. The box is packed with everything I needed to get started. Inside an hour I'd got LEDs flashing and seeing how data was being handled by the UNO. It's got enough in the box to keep me busy for the next few weeks.
A very gentle introduction to the Arduino. Well worth the investment.
You can spend quite a bit on books with various projects. I've gone the whole hog and bought the Arduino Cookbook which is turning out very well

For anyone wanting, like me, to get started with the Arduino Uno, this kit is just the job. There's a great variety of parts and the storage box keeps everything together.
I'd recommend also buying the Getting Started With Arduino book which introduces all the key concepts and will literally get you started :-)

This kit is a fantastic starter kit for anyone just getting started. I agree with another reviewer than it could use a manual, just to help beginners get started with using the components in the kit.

I'm new to Arduino so thought this would be ok to start with, but after receiving it found it had so much more scope, so many little projects can be achieved with whats in this kit it's a really great product very happy great job Proto-Pic :-)
