Fully functional Arduino Mega – JY-MCU MEGA Interactive Media MEGA1280 Development Board Reviews

posted by brewmanchu on 02/12/2013 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
This Arduino Mega works like a charm! Once I got it I opened the Arduino IDE, loaded the blinky sketch, compiled, and loaded it up. Voila! Within two minutes I had the LED blinking happily away. Modified the code and within a minute it was doing something else. For the price you can't go wrong. At my local electronics shop they wanted more than double the price I paid for this one.
Cons:
None that I can see. The only down side is that it took two weeks to get here. But with the saving I am not bothered at all.
Other:
If you are looking to get into microcontrollers, a board like this is the easiest step.
Bottomline:
Great product for the money. I will buy one again once my current project consumes this one.
