After much research on which WLED hardware/setup to get, this product became the top choice. Being me, I still had questions and wanted to 'double check' some things so I reached out to the seller (Serg) and I've gotta say I'm super grateful and appreciative to see someone respond as fast, thoroughly and attentively as he did. He answered my questions and made sure I'd be setup for success. I really wanted to try the moon mod version of WLED which is EU only, but I asked and he said no problem. Will install that for you, no charge. Good luck getting Best Buy, Amazon or any other place to do something like that. Looking forward to my new hardware.Product was shipped within 6 hours. Thank you Serg/Shields and more for hooking me up!
Also, as for the product itself, I searched everywhere at first on amazon to find an esp with the 16mb on it and wasted tons of time in the process as I never found one. So availability in addition to the aforementioned confidence that I'm getting the right hardware is absolutely priceless in wled land. Trust me, if you're new to this and not retired then just get one ready to go. There are so many things that can go wrong when you're rookie roberto like myself.
I saw this little board and I wanted to try it out, it worked out of the box with sound-reactive WLED pre-installed, the mic is also already set up and ready to rock and roll! No guesswork, basically plug and play! I honestly was expecting to fiddle around with the settings until getting everything up and running, but for the first time getting my lights ready took literally 2 minutes.
Used these for motion activated night lights. Took a trip to the wled discord to figure out the pin out scheme but after that did everything I was wanting it to do. Been running them for the last couple of months and been reliable. Will be buying more when back in stock.
This is a great little board, much better than the cheap ESP01 RGB shields you can get from China, I bought a few and I'm happy, you can add a momentary button super easily. I also love the addition of the pinout in the documentation, makes it easier to get started and takes out the guesswork (even though it's a pretty simple board to begin with)
Awesome compact board! Makes wiring up a wled project simple and quick! Something that stood out to me were the screw down terminals. Keeps the wire secure and in place. Compared to other boards out there. Definitely recommend for any wled project.
The board design and quality are extremely well done! Just looking at the board and assembly assured me that I would be highly unlikely to encounter any issues with bad soldering or flaky connections. The github page provides all the information anyone would really need to getting this plugged in and ready to go in minutes. Would definitely buy from again. Also, the link to the 3d printed case was a perfect fit! Cleaned up my install nice and neat, which was a welcomed bonus. Would love to have the grabcad files available for the mini, similar to ones provided for the full size shield. Great work on this shield!
