Preforms very similar to the NXT motors, but much easier to mount and build into frames. I would recommend this both to customers wanting a 4th motor for their EV3 or as a replacement for worn NXT motors.

Recommendation: meh 4.5 / 5 from 17 reviews

We've purchased at least a dozen of these motors in our various EV3 kits and as individual units like this one. The motors fail pretty quickly after a few months of FIRST LEGO League competition, so expect to be buying all new units at the beginning of a season, or every semester for classroom use. The aggravating thing is that they gradually fail, getting less and less accurate over time, and a set of two motors will fail at different rates so you'll always need to make sure to have matched pairs and swap them out together. For the price, I would have expected the quality to be higher, closer to an industrial part than a toy, but I'm guessing the margin structures are such that they need to source low-quality components to build these.
