ATMEAG328 5V 16Mhz Replace ATmega168 For Arduino Pro Mini
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
These Arduino style - Pro Mini boards have been great for my projects. I use them quite frequently because I do not need something as large as an Arduino one. They work the same. You will want to get a 5v FDTI cable to upload the program to it. I mostly use the board for LED lighting effects; to control neopixel ring and contect and contol other break out board. I use them when size is relevant to what I am making; like wearable costume props and even illuminated holiday ornaments, So far I have had no issues with these boards.
Tested all three out of the box with the Blink sketch; all three were operational. I finished my first project with one of the three over the weekend and have nothing but praise. Using my Uno as the prototyping board, this is a perfect match and exactly what I'm looking for: tiny form factor, tiny cost, and a perfect pair for the Uno as they share the same Atmega328 and pin-outs. At ~$16 for 3 units, this comes in at about half the unit cost of the "branded" Pro Minis and one fifth the cost of an Uno. Tack on Prime shipping and, thus far in my experience, no quality issues, and you have a winner! I recommend this to others and will buy this product or its 3.3V cousin as my go-to for future projects.
I received these three boards, powered them up. They seemed great at first. I am driving only three RGB leds for a pinewood derby car. They ran for a while (10 minutes), however, after starting the circuit a few times, the smoke came out of the voltage regulators. I presume these would work if you were only using five volts, but after reading a few other reviews and adding that to my personal experience, the regulators are GARBAGE!!! You get what you pay for, which is why I will be replacing these with true Arduino boards.
