Okay folks. It took a lot longer than I expected, but I have finally finished the update.
V2 is now in chart form, offers convenient tooltip explanations of components, and has toggle-able reviews. This not only makes it easier for me to update, but I think easier for a basic user to understand the different kits and their values.
The new version has taken residence at my electronics website http://ConductiveResistance.com
The comparison chart is located here
Comments and constructive criticism are welcome. Improvements will be made as ideas come to me and I have time. If you know of a kit that should be included, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: Rule of thumb about kits is that they must include an Arduino and be intended as a kit for introducing a person to Ardunio.
Thanks for all your encouragement and patience as I was putting this together.
