 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I ordered one yesterday.
http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Pro-Mini-Module-Atmega328-5V-16M-For-Arduino-Compatible-With-Nano/1503533345.html
These have a 16Mhz crystal rather than the cheaper and less accurate small ceramic resonators on the Pro Minis.

I have been using ATtiny85's and Digisparks, but many Arduino libraries don't work with them.
I really like the cheap PL2303HX USB-TTL serial adapters; I stick one of them into a breadboard and can use 5V USB passthru power and the 3.3 v from the onboard regulator.

There are some of these USB modules with clone chips on them that don't work with the newest prolific drivers.

 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I've ordered 20+ Pro Mini clones from here.
Just ordered 3 more today for a project, under $3 can't complain. And these have proper upload.
Have tried other Pro Mini clones that need the reset button manually pressed for proper upload.

$2.95 for qty 1 is very good.  For qty 10 the Baite boards I posted about are 2.70ea.
I like aliexpress better than Ebay since payment isn't released to the seller until I confirm receipt of the goods, and I can pay by credit card for any of the sellers.  I hated finding something I wanted on EBay, but couldn't get it because the seller only accepted paypal.  Now I don't even bother with EBay.
