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

    Pros:

    It's cheap, well constructed, and works just as it should.

    Cons:

    Is labelled "Arduino". Guys -- it's open source. The only thing you CAN'T do is call it "Arduino".

    OtherThoughts:

    There are a huge number of other Arduino devices. I'm sure that if DX stocked more (and could do something about the Arduino name (so as to make them completely legitimate) they'd have a major seller on their hands.

    I feel slightly reluctant to buy more because the manufacturer is abusing something they really don't need to.

    Bottomline:

    It's a great deal as are some of the other accessories. Get them labelled "ArDXino" and everyone would be happy. (but also say "Arduino compatible" so they're easy to search for)
