I ordered one yesterday.

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.

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.
It's all about the skills

$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.
