  • No bootloader. Difficult to install.

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

    Pros:

    It's cheap, and works as expected when you get the bootloader installed.

    Cons:

    It comes without the Arduino bootloader and wrong config for the ATMEGA fuses. You need an ISP or another working Arduino to fix this.

    OtherThoughts:

    I spent many hours searching for how I could burn the bootloader, but only got weird error messages. Google was not much help. Found a solution at last, which I documented in the product discussion forum.

    Bottomline:

    Don't buy! Pay the extra bucks for an original Arduino.
