The Kit arrived from QKits Company in Canada to Iowa, USA in 5 business days, just in time for the weekend tinkering. Order Satisfaction is definatelly a 10. Contrary to the online description, it did include a Serial programming cable, a nice bonus. There was also a mini CD which had the software, schematics, and manuals for all the Velleman Kits on it, double bonus! However finding the VM111 folder was a little hard at first. The printed manual is identical to the online PDF version, however it proved very valuable during the development process. The PIC was already inserted in the socket. There was no description of the power supply polarity that I could find. Outside minus(-) inside plus(+) is what the board takes. 9V 300MA ended up working out just fine.
