    I am delighted with this little board, it is well made and very fast. Hardware wise a very high quality product. There is one caveat if you are using this with arduino you must install downlevel Arduino 1.6.5 ide as the Wemos libraries are not yet supporting the 1.6.6 ide. If you try to use this ide your code will refuse to compile with warnings like "Warning: platform.txt from core 'WeMos LGT Boards' contains deprecated tools.avrdude.cmd.path=" Please keep in mind, the deprecated code will only stop you from developing with the latest IDE, it works very well with the last version! I feel certain that the Wemos developers will soon fix the library. Overall I think this is a valuable product for those that wish to go beyond the capabilities of a standard Arduino and considering the fact that it has built in WiFi one should conclude that this board is a bargain.

    After configuring my IDE and downloading the relevant examples (takes about 15 mins to do this) I then had great success and managed to create a simple HTTP Web Server (see photo). Only restriction is one analogue input pin available so only one sensor can be connected. Perhaps I2C can get round this limitation (not yet tried). Also, all pins are 3.3v so watch out for 5v external boards which will damage this one without reducing that (easy to do with level converters or even a voltage divider with two resistors). I also connected this to a NTP (Timer Server) so no need to connect to a DS3231 RTC (Real Time Clock) module; time always up to date! Worth buying one just to experiment with and seeing what can be done once the wires are gone and you have wifi freedom.

    I ordered some ESP8266 Arduinos for a home automation solution. The board uses a simple off-the-shelf ESP8266 module. Note that this module does not AFAIK (yet?) have CE certification for the EU, so check if that is required for your application beforehand. The hardware quality is very good, not only did the manufacturer use high efficiency DC/DC converters instead of linear LDOs for the input voltage, there was also nothing to complain about regarding the solder quality at all. This can not be expected for the low price. Regarding transportation, the board comes in a metalized ESD-protected bag which is unfortunately not really reusable (like the bags from DigiKey), but serves its purpose well. I had some trouble setting up the ESP8266 Arduino on Linux, but this was due to a bug which has since been fixed in the software. After fixing the bug, the software worked fine.

    Both boards arrived with no damage and in working order. They arrived in a small black plastic bag, the boards wrapped in thin sponge like wrapper. It ought to be thicker but they survived anyway. I have uploaded a server sketch and both are working fine. Great little toys to play with :) Recommended seller.

    This is a great module at a ridiculous price; fully compatible with Arduino and integrating a Wifi module, don't forget to update your boards thru the "Boards manager" in the Arduino IDE preferences with this url "http://arduino.esp8266.com/stable/package_esp8266com_index.json"; more info and code will be available on my arduino fb page : http://www.facebook.com/arduino4fun Domi @ www.arduino4fun.com

    a good deal, this board will help me to automate a few systems in my house, it was well packaged, and delivered before it was due to be delivered. I am very happy with the price and everything else about it..
