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

Pros:
Good quality, good price. Comes with USB cable so you can start right out of the box :) Had no problems using on windows 8 pc automatically detected device and installed drivers.
Cons:
USB cable is quite short, but it's not a problem if you use it with laptop or put in on your pc top.
Other:
FTD chip is used for USB communication, some user prefer atmel chips but for average users there is no difference i think :) Cable is transparent blue so looks nice i like that (picture shows black).
Bottomline:
Good price for good item. Arrived very quick. Soldering quality is good. if you need a cheap and good arduino mega go and get this one!
