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

Pros:
Works perfectly on my Arduino Uno and allso on my Nanino 0.6. The packaging was very good so nothing got damaged or bend. The pins were all in a thic layer of foam so there is littel chance to damage it.
Cons:
The chip is a bit hungry. It draws about 160mA with the default WebServer testing sketch (together with arduino uno) so 6 AA batteries went from 9V to 6V in a few hours. But this is not a con of the product itself, but its architecture/specification.
Other:
Very good build quality. Easy to work with even for beginners. Good software support.
Bottomline:
this field is required
