Hello guys.

I want to know if any one have good or bad experience with the folowing site
www.propox.com

I want to buy some of there network avr modules.
But i can not connect these guys.
So before i buy something need to know how they are.

Thanks

I've heard good things about using their products on other boards. And they seem to be very reasonably priced. And the Web site is quite nice. But in an inquiry on a product, no response to first email, then a very short response (not answering the questions) in the follow-up. So I did not buy from them; instead got a (pretty much) comparable Olimex through sparkfun (US)--in-stock and received in several days.

You can put lipstick on a pig, but it is still a pig.

I've never met a pig I didn't like, as long as you have some salt and pepper.

Although I have not proceeded to purchase yet ,the people at Propox responded quickly to my RFQ for a custom variation of one of their boards and the pricing was great as long as the US$ vs Euro does not fluctuate too much..their designs seem especially well though out in my opinion compared to some of the other solutions I have both seen and purchased for avrs.....

I like thier stuff too is seem very good and cheap (euro vs dollar).
Maybe i'm not luck that they do not answer my mail.

I just want to buy the stuff through paypal or something else and not sending my info and creditcard number unencrypted over the net.

You pay by a secure server , using VISA/MC

Propox sends a link to the server-transaction then you have ordered.

Seemed ok to me .... and i got my stuff.

I like ARMs ability to port projects to different devices.

I'm curious as to what you mean by this. I mean I use a variety of AVRs - and it's never a problem to move code from one device to another. Maybe I'll have to change a register name or two - but that's it. I don't understand why ARMs would be better in this regard. (not that I'm questioning the usefulness of ARMs - a project I'm working on right now consists of 6 AVRs and an AT91SAM7X256)
