Good, quick delivery.
Assembled it and plugged in Xbee. It would have been nice to have a stack-able header and a 3 way header for the supply pins.

Does what it says on the tin. Would also like one with screw connectors for the signal connection for connecting in signal cables etc.
Fast delivery. Good price. More breadboard products please.

Arrived very quickly, and in one piece (I mean six).
If I had to nitpick: It would be great if you could include a header for the power pins.
Good quality, waiting for time and soldering iron to assemble. :)
UPDATE: Seems Dr Monk used some in his blog post, our kit does not include them because we leave the choice upto you to make. We often use battery snaps for example.

Reasonably priced and invaluable if you want to mount an XRF or similar. Very quick indeed to assemble.
Only one tiny gripe. The board review link on the product description page shows the product with an extra header. Whilst I didnt need this, it cost me some time trying to work out if a part had been lost or omitted. The description page could make this clearer.

A helpful and useful accessory to aid my progress in understanding not just the PI but in adding functions and facilities to this PC.
The shopping experience was effective and provided with prompt delivery

I'm writing to highly recommend this company, and the Slice of Pi too of course. I ordered it on Friday and had it by Monday's mail. Absolutely astounded by the no fuss transaction. Haven't put it together yet, but it's perfect to just get some projects going with. Will protect my GPIO pins and make projects a ton easier. I will definitely be looking to ciseco again for parts and whatnot. More Pi stuff please. Thanks!

Couple this with a dil socket, an MP 16 port expander chip, a few link wires and soldering skills and you have a nice little safe interface board which should stop you every frying your Pi

Easy to put together, makes accessing the GPIO header quite a lot easier and gives a good board to start attaching things to.

I bought one of these initially to play with interfacing XBee modules easily to my Raspberry Pi.
But I've since been using it as a generic prototyping 'shield' for the Pi, interfacing a motor controller to the GPIO pins to produce a very compact motor interface for my robot platform (see http://fanjita.org/ for some details).
I liked it so much, I ordered another one to keep in my parts drawer as I'm sure to want to use it again for another project. And if you're not actually using the supplied headers to connect anything, you could piggy back two of these boards fairly easily by supplying your own stackable headers.
One last thing - it's not obvious, but you also get space to add a 3-pin header of your own to break out the 3.3V, 5V and 0V connections.
