  • Cheap good quality Mega

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Works well, but I bought simply on cost. I wasn't aware that the current version of the Mega uses an ATmega2560. This board uses the ATmega1280. I guess this is a clone of the original Mega. None the less it's still a really good buy. I ran a number of sketches on it already. Beginners Note: The IDE will have to be set to the correct Arduino version for the sketch to compile and upload correctly. I selected the wrong Mega type the first time I tried uploading a sketch. Everything works well when the settings are done correctly. It has a lot more IO than the UNO.

    Cons:

    None, but I would probably get a ATmega2560 version if I buy another.

    OtherThoughts:

    Good quality. Nice clone.

    Bottomline:

    Good buy.
