    great fun! love it!
    this arduino driven 'robot', well it's a plotter, is a great pleasure and lived up totally to the expectations. 2 parts to it: building it. i felt like a little child again. to build it, i spent 10 hours of great fun and as an engineer, i immediately improved the pen-holder. overall, a great experience. the only drawback: after i have read some complains from the early stages of the V2.0 about the pen-cable being too long, they are now being shipped too short. i had to byu new ones (2 x 1m) from a local store and payed another $15 for them. switzerland, you know. but that doesn't scratch on the fun.
    part 2: software. that part is not documented very well. after trying on several windows images, which all failed, i was a little disappointed. image 1 windows 7 on a very old laptop, where usb was not supported well. image 2 was 32b, which is documented not to be supported. image 3 windows 7.1, where mDraw immediately crashed. later, i found out, i had to re-install the visual studio supporting dll-s. then, on win7, by default, there is no usb-serial-converter-driver, which i also had to find and install. and then ... still nothing. until i brought the arduino to my office (image 4 windows 8, where everything is supported upfront) and re-flushed the the firmware. finally working! first drawings promising.
    working environment: wind8 + win7.1 (with some tweaking) with the natively compiled mDraw. arduino IDE also working properly.
    not so well working (and i did not yet find out the conditions): mDraw python. sometimes it's going, sometimes i don't get connection through the com-port. same on linux. because there is no native mDraw for linux, you're stuck with the python-version, which is or is not doing something.
    what i'm missing: for teaching purposes (i'm also a teacher), i'd like to have a command-line interface. that would be given with python, but ...
    conclusion: yes! i would buy again and i can recommend.

    PROS: really great fun! all parts are nicely done, fit together and basically work. stability of the construction is good, but you have to be careful, because it's aluminium and that doesn't take maltreatment well.

    CONS: software (esp the requirements) not documented very well, but doable. python interface does not work reliably, neither under windows nor under linux.

    (please add to my previous review)

    PROS: shipping from monoprice was extremly fast (compared to other things coming from the states, it took only 4 days to switzerland).

    CONS: shipping was a little expensive and ups kept knocking on closed doors. i think, ups is specialized on office-deliveries, not on private households, where during daytime, no one will be present.

    Have not gotten the plotter to work yet as I have not been able to download software after repeated attempts. Still trying.

    PROS: Nice kit, went together fairly easy

    Picture instructions good but small.

    CONS: One wrong part, a short shaft was too large diameter.

    Have not been able to download software after repeated attempts.

    Cool Kit but came with a DOA part
    I finally found a weekend to put this kit together. It came together pretty nicely between two evenings, but when it came time to turn it on and operate it, I discovered one of the two Me Stepper Drivers was dead. That means I have a Y Plotter instead of an XY Plotter. :(

    PROS: Assembly was fairly straight forward after getting updated instructions. Make sure you check the type of Adruino board you own and download those specific instructions. Orion and Leonardo variations require two different setups. Good updated instructions and links to downloads can be found here, since the kit doesn't come with them: http://learn.makeblock.cc/xy2/

    CONS: DOA part the kit came with is going to cost $$$ to replace
