Cheap, but didn't last long... – D1208 Mega 2560 Development Board w/ USB Cable - Blue + Black Reviews

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

Pros:
Cheaper than official arduino, works well for a while... If you want a cheap board to try some prototyping, buy this.
Cons:
I've used this a few times and it is already not communicating with the computer - can't upload new sketches. I think its not trustful to put one of these in a serious prototype, only for quick experiments.
Other:
I think was bad luck. I have other clones and all work well, but this one got defective.
Bottomline:
Next time I will try another brand or maybe spend some more and get the official board.
