  • Older design, but it works

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Affordable
    WIZnet W5100 chip, supported by the Arduino SDK without any external libraries. Which makes it fairly easy to use.

    Cons:

    Older PCB Design ("Ethernet Shield 05")
    The pins were bent, but fairly easy to straighten out with a pair of pliers.

    OtherThoughts:

    This shield is a no-brand version of the Arduino Ethernet Shield 05:

    I haven't had the opportunity to test the MicroSD Card slot yet.

    Bottomline:

    It's decent value for money.
