Cheap and fully compatible Arduino – Arduino Compatible Duemilanove Mega AVR ATmega1280-16AU USB Board Reviews

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

Pros:
This device is fully compatible with Arduino, and up to 60% cheaper than an original one. You have plenty of pins to use, it totally works with official Arduino framework.
Cons:
Type B USB cable begins to be obsolete. I would prefer a mini-USB or micro-USB. By the way, the cable in this bundle works really fine.
Other:
I use it with screens and keypad, as I am building my own alarm.
Bottomline:
A fully compatible development board. If you want to begin Arduino dev, with many devices (screen, keypad, sensors, ...), you might consider to buy this board !
