    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    I don't know if it's a clone or the real thing, it comes with the Arduino and Italy silkscreen, and most important, it worked right out of the box.
    Tried under WinXP and Ubuntu 12.04 with IDE v1.01 and v1.02. with no issues whatsoever.
    I connected a 2x16 LCD screen (not a shield, just wired it up myself) and it worked 100% with all examples. I chose this board for the extra memory compared against the normal '328s rather than for the extra I/O.

    Cons:

    No cons so far!

    OtherThoughts:

    I'm barely doing my first steps in Arduino, I've been programming several languages for a long time now. So far, it's a very attractive embedded platform for small but "intelligent" applications.

    Bottomline:

    Get one now if you're into uControllers. It's really FUN.
