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

    Pros:

    Cheapest Arduino I could find

    Got basic programs up and running quickly using the Arduino software (http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software)

    Easy to program

    Built in LED and reset switch

    Cons:

    Was a little fiddly to setup and get the drivers working, but a reboot afterwards and running the dev software as an administrator sorted out all the issues.

    Bottomline:

    Excellent value, worked instantly with a 1602 LCD display on Windows 7 x64. Surprised at how easy it was to set up, connect and program.

    Have to run the development software as an Administrator to get it to upload properly, but this is a Windows issue.

    Great for a quick and cheap introduction to Arduino programming and prototyping, enough features/IO ports to keep an beginner like myself entertained.
