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

    Pros:

    This is the arduino Mega2560 runs at Rev.3 on my PC. It comes with a 40/50 cm long USB cable and works straight from the box (after setting the right device and port in the device manager.
    I am planning to use it with a riser board. The connectors feel very solid. Has 54 ports compared to my very few on the nano32.

    Cons:

    None whatsoever at this moment. Could have used a mini or micro USB port since that is more the standard now, but since it came with a USB cable this is not an issue for me.

    OtherThoughts:

    Arduinos are easy to program I got it with a whole set of sensors and breadboard to improve my easy programming skills and planning to make a weather station out of it.

    Bottomline:

    Arduino bang for the bucks. Full with the large 256kb storage chip.
