I have bought one of these Elegoo Arduino kits before and the quality leaves a lot to be desired. Mine came with multiple defective components.

I think it's a good price for a lot of components. I got a much smaller starter kit so here's my take:
If you stick with it, you'll probably use 50% of the kit

The most useful things are the UNO and Breadboard with jumpers, buttons and basic components.

Even if the quality is shoddy, this seems to be a good price to get you started and if you get bored or frustrated, you're not out much.

A few things I wouldn't buy like the LCD unless it had the backpack. 7 segment displays are a PITA when you can buy an I2C oLED for a buck or two (much easier to wire and program).

Plenty of online tutorials. Essentially you're doing some coding in C and would be helpful to know some electronics basics. Check this guy out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d...2NbB4mZQn-

I haven't used the Elegoo brand before, but worth the risk for $22.50.

Thanks OP.

I got this kit last time around and everything seems to work well, at least the parts that I have used in my first projects. I'm new this scene though, and I haven't used all of it. I'd buy it again given my experience so far.

Looking to pick up another hobby. What all can be done with this? Any online tutorials to help learn or are you pretty much on your own?

This is a good deal for a clone kit that includes the board that ships from North America (and Prime at that!). Obviously you can save money by buying from Ali, Banggood, eBay, etc, but you have to wait for shipping. It's a good starting point while you occasionally put in orders from overseas for things you anticipate using in the future. Pretty soon you're surprises by packages showing up and forgetting you ordered things.

I got this kit to mod my cat genie.. (CG60)

The board has been running for quite some time with no issues. My only wish was there was an internal clock.

The LCD is more for learning I would think. There are better options but they operate at a higher level, usually with classes someone else made. The LCD is good for just a low level understanding that can be totally DIY. If you're into that kinda thing.

I work for a local school district and teach 4/5th graders how to code with Arduino boards and mblock blue software. Add some legos, a few IR sensors, and some 12v motors and you can build some pretty fun robotics.

My son just joined the middle school robotics club, got any links to good projects we could do with this kit as a base?

I would pick up a couple Esp's with Nodemcu in addition to this kit. I have these and they work great. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...UTF8&psc=1
You will find that access to the IoT makes the hobby alot more fun.
