Older design, but it works – Ethernet Shield with Wiznet W5100 Ethernet Chip / TF Slot Reviews

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

Pros:
Affordable WIZnet W5100 chip, supported by the Arduino SDK without any external libraries. Which makes it fairly easy to use.
Cons:
Older PCB Design ("Ethernet Shield 05") The pins were bent, but fairly easy to straighten out with a pair of pliers.
Other:
This shield is a no-brand version of the Arduino Ethernet Shield 05: http://www.smallshire.org.uk/sufficientlysmall/2012/01/01/an-atlas-of-arduino-ethernet-shields/ I haven't had the opportunity to test the MicroSD Card slot yet.
Bottomline:
It's decent value for money.
