Good enough – Ethernet Shield with Wiznet W5100 Ethernet Chip / TF Slot Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
Price, price, price if you need clasical ethernet shield for compatibility
Cons:
Compared to original this one has some missing features. There is no MAC address, you must create random (not recommended) or use MAC of some useless machine from your property. There is missing 3,3 power regulator. This is'nt probably problem if you are using it with arduino. With your own board without 3.3V, LED didn't working (if I understand schematic correctly).
Other:
Some of pins on received shield was bended by transport. No big deal. This sheild have LED on ethernet connector, better than original.
Bottomline:
Good for price.
