I have started this thread for users to contribute about their Arduino boards....clones and the originals. This will help begineers in selection and help them avoid problems faced due to cheap quality products.
Personally I have a few Arduino's floating around from friends and workshops. My first one an arduino clone which i received at Arktechnosolution's workshop. The quality was pathetic and discovered later that few tracks were broken inside although not visible. I planned to buy a new one. I bought a freeduino from Bhashatech, I was dissapointed again as the headers were not properly aligned as per the standards. My shield wasnt compatible basically.
Now I plan to buy a new one but I am not sure if will get an affordable one for my tight budget of <1000 Rs. I may have to wait for some more time and go for the expensve original.
Kindly share your experience with your Arduino and post the link to the makers website too.
