Best price for ethernet shield – Ethernet Shield with Wiznet W5100 Ethernet Chip / TF Slot Reviews

posted by chrl on 06/24/2013 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
It's very cheap and affordable. Good quality of manufacture. Easy to install.
Cons:
1) There is no MAC - had to generate it manually 2) When connected to ethernet switch, if there is too much noise on the wires (i had 5 devices connected) - the shield starts working slow. Delays up to 60-80 seconds when responding usual http-query to inner webserver. 3) It takes 10-13 pins for it's own needs, so you won't use them for another needs.
Other:
Would be nice if the manufacturer pre-generates MAC-address.
Bottomline:
Best buy for this price - you won't regret that.
