Pros:
Very, very good price. More than enough input and/or outputs to develop almost any electronic project.
Cons:
It comes in a anti-static bag, but with no protection at all. Build quality is not quite good. When I plugged a shield, and after unplugged it, the black plastic for pin connectors were released. I reassembled and worked OK, but I now know that I must to manipulate it gently.
Other:
The only thing it lacks is a couple of analog inputs, like Arduino Due has.
Bottomline:
The USB cable is not black. Transparent blue instead. The build quality is according to its price.
