    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It works and does so quite readily. Price is good, too.

    Cons: I'd be really wary of accidentally running reverse voltage across it. It's got a rubber sheathe that looks like it might keep out dust, but that's about it.

    Other: If you need something quick and simple for a one-off project, you'll probably want something more user friendly. If you want a standardized way to connect via bluetooth to several microcontrollers, or need something modular, this is probably up your alley, but you'll need a bit of coding expertise to get full use from it.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Easy to use, plug and play, cheap, easy to conect, compatible with almost any microcontroller, you can use it on many microcontroller aplications in wich you need to connect with a tablet, cellphon or pc with bluetooth.

    Cons: Only works on slave mode. You can only enter the setup trough wires connected to the device (can not be done "on Air"). Only reaches 10m

    Other: You think you need it, buy it, you may not have regrets.

    posted by SONYJON on 03:18:30 G11T 19/11/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It's very small and cheap. There are a lot of tutorials to use it. Perfect for small wireless projects. Build quality is good. The cable fits perfectly on the module. You can change the name and baud rate.

    Cons: The transfer rate is a bit slow. The female connectors are a bit thigh, but then the module won't come louse. You can not program your Arduino through bluetooth.

    Other: Small, cheap, easy, but a bit slow.

    posted by distortedbsd on 14:17:26 G11T 17/11/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Easy to use device, easy to configure. It took me a little bit on reading on forums and several articles, and a bit of experimenting, but all in all it took me 1 hour to get it working as I wanted. The best thing is that there are plenty of info out there, and it is easy to find help. It works great without any voltage dividers if you are working with 5V DC power supply or if you are powering it from Arduino or custom board. It also works great from a 3.3V DC source.

    Cons: Can be slave only. Because it is based on HC-06, its configuration is not that rich.

    Other: Cheap, easy to use, easy to install, easy to configure device. I didn't measure exactly the working distance, but I've tried to communicate between different rooms, I think it should work for a distance of at least 10 meters.

    posted by JoaoRibas on 18:32:45 G9T 21/09/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Pretty good distance, I placed mine inside a metal box and it still reached 4 meters. In open space I got at least 10 meters with good signal quality. The pinout is described in the bottom layer, so no problems connecting it to the proc. The transparent shrink tube around the board makes for a very decent finish.

    Cons: Total and complete mixed up documentation. I have found at least a dozen different datasheets and user guides for this module. If you just want to plug and play it works fine at 9600 baud, but if you want to change any of the default settings then it gets troublesome.

    Other: After a lot of struggle with documentation and AT commands it finally worked as I wanted. I have already bought another one, just waiting for it to arrive. The price is a little high compared to others, but the quality is good.

    posted by Jumboman on 03:10:42 G8T 25/08/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It works fine and it's very cheap. As soon as I hooked it up properly I could instantly begin sending and recieving data using my phone. You should check out some instructables on how to wire this properly. http://www.instructables.com/id/Success-Using-the-JY-MCU-linvor-Bluetooth-Module/ is a good one.

    Cons: No manual, no datasheet. Plus, the RX pin needs 3.3 volts so you need to build a voltage divider by placing it between a 1k and 2.2k resistor.

    Other: for this price you can't go wrong with it.

  • Easy way to connect Bluetooth with microcontroller

    posted by bzeymer on 16:54:52 G7T 22/07/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Very easy to use. I opened the package and ten minutes after I was blinking leds with my phone connected to my Arduino. I am using a Samsung Galaxy SIII and I haven't found any problem with the Bluetooth signal, my smartphone easily recognized the module. Comparing the price in another stores, DX.com was unbeatable

    Cons: There aren't any cons against the module that worked perfectly.

    Other: Easiest and cheaper way to integrate Arduino boards with smartphones.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: - Reasonable price - Small size-> to implement in any circuit - Very easy to use :PnP! - Very easy to connect : access to the pins in a breadboard or with the connector and wires provided. - I used with my Android phone and several Apps to send/receive commands. All worked and connected via BT rapidly. - The LED blinks until a conection has been accepted and then stay still. Useful to check connections visually.

    Cons: Not really except that it is just slave.

    Other: Very good to control a robot with Android phones or from a tablet, laptop... etc. Work in both directions (Rx, Tx) without problem.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Reasonable price, Arduino friendly, very simple to use. Can be easily used for wireless implementations of microcontrollers! It's ready to use for breadboards and not surface mount which makes things easier for prototypes.

    Cons: Don't see any yet!

    Other: Worth it! Thumbs up!
