Works as original – Ethernet Shield with Wiznet W5100 Ethernet Chip / TF Slot Reviews

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

Pros:
This Ethernet shield is fully compatible with the Arduino Uno at a fraction of the price of the original shield. You don't support the Arduino guys with this one, but theirs is too expensive compared to this one. Works as advertised.
Cons:
QC as to be expected good enough. Parts are not completely aligned, but with some fiddling and bending it makes a snug fit on the Arduino. Color is not the same as the original, but matches the arduino clone sold om some chinese sites.
Other:
None
Bottomline:
For experimenting and testing, this is the perfect Ethernet shield, supported out of the box by the Arduino IDE. Good quality, excellent price !
