Works perfectly, good build quality – Ethernet Shield with Wiznet W5100 Ethernet Chip / TF Slot Reviews

Pros:
The build quality is very good. I tested the board together with the MEGA 2560 board (also ordered from DX). I tested the example programs from the Arduino 1.0 software. I tested both Ethernet and SD card programs. I did not encounter any problem.
Cons:
The connector pins came a bit bend but I could easily bend them back into the right position.
Other:
Very good price! The only thing I can make up is that I would recommend DX to package these kind of items a bit better to avoid bend pins. For example DX could include a box option for packaging, I would like to pay an extra dollar for such a option.
Bottomline:
I like this board and use it a lot. I did not find any reason for not buying it.
