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

    Pros:
    100% Arduino compatible board. It includes two male pin header strips that you can solder or not, depending on your needs. Quality seems good enough. It works directly from the box. Easy to program and use.
    Cons:
    No cons at all.

    A small Arduino board at a small price

    posted by bigjack65 on 01/26/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cheap, small, perfect for every standalone project or for testing on protoboard. Almost the same footprint of original Pro Mini plus extra analog pins and the ability to work with 3,3V and 5V @16Mhz! Component are all on one side. Very affordable product.
    Cons:
    Not really have cons. Product arrived with pins already soldered, useful for breadboards or for rapid replacement, but not so v...

    Great project 'tinyfier'

    posted by DJWK on 11/13/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Performs just like I expected. I bought it for 'production' micro-controller. I'm building and testing programs with Arduino Mega and using this in the final application. Ordered two of these and both are working fine.
    Cons:
    Came with header pins soldered. Not what I expected from the photos provided.
