From away back when I watched the original Battlestar Galactica and Knight Rider I've wanted to get my hands on a scanner. Back in those days it was all mosfets and (for me) hard to find electronics. Skip forward a decade or three and I found these Larson Scanners. Not only are they pre built and ready to go, but I can get them delivered to my door, happy days! Slim, light and very bright (everything I am not), this board is a simple joy. Simply power it via the micro USB connector or optional Buck convertor and you are up and running.
The PCB is of decent quality with a little bit of flex but I wouldn't push it too much. LEDs are bright and clear.
No printed documentation (not that you need any) but there are links on the website to the original project this board is based on, and also links to the Source Code that is used in the scanner.
A small hiccup in postage (wrong tracking code), but fantastic communication throughout.
All in I'm very happy to have my scanners, I will be back for more.
I am extremely pleased with quality and performance of the product. There was some delay in the shipping that was NOT the fault of the seller. Mr. Apostolidis provided a detailed account of a terrible situation with his local post office and that affected his customers. I, fortunately received my order and could not be happier. The scanners are terrific!
Versatile circuit on a small footprint. Works as advertised, quite pleased with it. Documentation explains all the functions, and there are more than I currently need. Greek mail took its sweet time, but that not the seller's fault.
This is not a complicated piece or even a kit - it's fully assembled and there's one function - connect a power supply. Still some kind of documentation would've been nice, even if not needed. Not sure it'd be worth the extra expense. I've had both of 'em up and running literally within minutes of arrival - and they got here MUCH faster than I expected! Never received anything from Greece before and they make some others look down right slow and sloppy. Arrived in good shape, well packed and sooner than expected. Left 'em running for several hours with out a hitch. These are fun!
Looks and works great. Have it enabled with a PIR motion sensor, which also enables a sound module with a looped recording of the Cylon eye warble' Activates whenever someone walks by. A nice addition to the tech area.
