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

    Pros:

    - Cheap price
    - Small, portable.
    - Suitable for laptops
    - 2 LED, power ( blue) & data ( yellow)

    Cons:

    - 30 cm cable is too short unless you use regularly a laptop.
    - To be confirmed, seems not working on AVR studio 6, but works in avrstudio 4.
    - No documentation or manual ( nice to have a sheet for getting started)
    - Strength could be improved ( sems a bit weak)

    OtherThoughts:

    - After pluggin on USB port, does not recognizes the device inmediately, unless you download the Prolific chip driver . If you use W7 this can be downloaded from Prolific website.
    - Once you have the Prolific drive, it is recognized as STK500 in ISP mode.
    - Does not deliver 5V to the target board.
    - Would be nice to have 6 pin ISP adaptor included.
    - Get a USB Male-Female extension if you're going to use a desktop computer

    Bottomline:

    - Not bad. More than enough for AVR programming hobbiest .
