Wondering why the 2 MAX7219 ICs needed to complete the kit are not included !!
Currently, the price disparity of the MAX7219 chip from various suppliers is too great. This chip is available on ebay and some other online stores for a third or less than those from reputable suppliers.
Although it would be great for all the parts to be included in the kit for completeness, we decided not to include this part in the kit.
We do have some lots of the MAX7219 ICs we bought from online stores which probably may not be genuine but not a single one have failed for those we used. We will include 2 of these MAX7219 ICs for *FREE* with each kit you purchased. However, if you are not 'comfortable' having these ICs, please input in the Additional Instruction Box not to include these ICs during Check Out.
Note that these MAX7219 ICs for *FREE* and we will not replace them if they are found to be faulty.
