Can someone tell me what is exactly wrong with the Chinese arduino clones?
Often, the clone I/O headers aren't soldered on right - they'll be pitched, askew, crooked.
where this discussion falls down is the SeeedStudio Mega clone is the bestest Mega1280 board!It brings out every pin of the 1280, you can even us the Nootropic video experimenter shield with it.I haven't seen a SeeedStudio Mega prototyping shield yet, but for my genuine Mega's I use the DFRobot prototyping shield, which is freakin great.The Sparkfun Mega Prototyping shield is useless for anything other than putting a breadboard on.The Australian Arduino's from Freetronics are excellent quality and their prototyping board is an excellent product.
As such, the Arduino team might do a better job of highlighting which sources of Arduino-compatible hardware are doing their fair share of supporting the project.
