Best arduino shield ever! – Ethernet Shield with Wiznet W5100 Ethernet Chip / TF Slot Reviews

posted by Alver on 05/09/2013 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Plug and play; I was expecting some hassle to get it working but it turns out to be "almost" a no-brainer. Example sketches from arduino IDE compiled and executed perfectly. Even the TF slot worked well too.
Cons:
None at all. I was expecting PoE but to be honest I don´t even have a switch supporting PoE, so it´s irrelevant.
Other:
Amazed to see arduino fetching web pages for the first time and to see it´s web server running is really awesome.
Bottomline:
There are infinite possibilities when you connect arduino to the internet, if you have an interest in developing to this platform this shield is a must have.
