That's a nice alternative!  I wasn't aware it was available.
Of course, if you're really cheap, you can go with a Homebrew BS2.
You can order it from http://www.phanderson.com/
It costs $21, and shipping is about $2.  That $23 total!

Of course the BS2 Homebrew isn't quite as complete as the OEM BASIC Stamp II
- Kit.
It doesn't include the etched circuit board, the header pins, the 5 volt
regulator or the 9pin DB connector.  And it uses 3 IC's instead of two.
It's functionally identical to a BS2, but uses different physical parts.

I just got one in the mail last week and have started assembling it, but
haven't had time to finish it yet.
I'm looking forward to getting to tinker with it!

Has anyone tried this cheaper alternative to the BS2?

I'm just a beginner but this looks pretty cool.


OEM BASIC Stamp II - Kit  $34.00
