Radio Shack Sucks...

So I was planning on getting some LED's and stuff from Radio Shack, but they didn't have the color that I wanted. I was planning on compromising, and getting some that were not my first choice, but I decided to check out Amazon.com. From there I found enough of what I will need for the next part of the project, so I got it. I was surprised however when I saw how much shipping was for the Arudino (and the rest of the products). Shipping was like half the cost :/ Oh well, I guess I couldn't expect the project to be free. Anyway, below is what I bought today. I am thinking about posting the drafts of the designs later (maybe before my stuff comes in the mail). As always, tell me what you think.

Goodies from Amazon.com


Until next time...

  4. You can actually get free LEDs and stuff off the net from distrubutors.
    Just say they are for samples.

  6. Postage for this kind of product is a bit ridiculous, could probably try dealextreme? They sell pretty much everything, free worldwide postage (but it is very slow; about a month for me to get most things in the UK), and very fair prices

  9. Might be cheaper, but you could be compensating by lack of warranty. Just be careful when buying online =)
