    Hi Akshay,
    I am not keen on buying the particular board. Rather I am buying some microcontrollers , PCB and stuff from them. So was just looking for an opinion. Infact their prices are as competetive as shops in LMR...or probably mehta brothers is expensive!!!!

    For lower quantities , sometimes online shops are cheaper ... only in bulk do local buying does really become cheap.

    I agree but all the price difference gets covered up by shipping costs( atleast in my case) and you even have to wait for some days.

    Most now have over night shipping , max 2 days delivery. so Rs 100 - 150 of shipping i do not mind for the convenience.

    BTW i hate visiting LRM , its a utter waste of time and a very dirty place. But sometimes there is no other alternative ...

    I finally went with P89V51RD2

    < Rs 100 in low volumes also
    64 kb flash and 1 KB SRam and EEPROM.
    8051 core
    No programmer required.

    The main reasons were 64 Kb flash and 1 Kb ram. I did not require any optimizations as ample RAM and flash was available for use.
