Product Review

Honestly, I think that I am impressed with this component because this product has a lot of positive remarks to go with it including:
1. A powerful range, reaching up to 60ft and more.
 2. It has good quality, not having any manufacturing faults or problems.
 3. I used this with an Arduino Uno, and I'm able to easily program this module with ease, blinking the laser or using it as a strobe.
4. The software is very easy and short in terms of lines of code. 
5. Since this module has very small dimensions, it can be mounted to almost any project and can be fitted in to any project box.
6. The hardware is very easy to connect to a micro-controller or programmer as it has only three pins (Signal, VCC and GND).
