'[PIC] Question on mikroElectronica EasyPIC systems'

Greetings all,

   I'm getting the bug to do something useful and interesting with a
PIC device. I have ideas and plans... But first, I need to get up to
speed with some real world devices and coding. has anyone here in the US
ordered and received an EasyPIC system????  If so, how long did it take
to get it and were you satisfied with it. Thank you for your input here??

Yes.

I have an EasyPIC4 which I purchased from circuit-ed.com .   I also
bought MikroC and a few of their add on boards as well.   I have been
very happy with it for proof-of-concept work.   MikroC is cool to play
with but not really what I would consider a pro-level tool (I also own
C18 and PCWH which are better).

If mine failed, I would purchase another.   I have also recently
purchased their LV 18FJ board for ethernet development work, but haven't
played with it yet.

Both circuit-ed and mikroe seem to ship pretty quickly, although
circuit-ed being in the states and stocking pretty much everything makes
it go faster.

I have both the EasyPic3 and EasyPIC4 boards, many add on cards, and the C and Basic compilers.  I have been very happy with their products.  The only complaint I have is that their compilers create pretty bloated code.  They work great and are easy to use though so if space isn't a problem, then they are satisfactory.  The support is very good.  They have forums and you can get support there if you need it.

I have bought directly from both Mikroelektronika and from Circuit-ed.com.  The few dollars extra to buy from circuit-ed.com in the US is worth it I believe because it does take longer to get it factory direct from Europe.  The new easyPIC5 is hard to beat.  A very complete development/prototype board complete with on-board USB programmer, support for Graphic LCD with 4-wire touchscreen, and in-circuit debugger for $119 isn't duplicated by anyone else.

If I was to buy another development board to replace my ageing Millenium
boards (almost 8 years old now) it would most certainly be one of the
EasyPic boards.

I looked into getting one last year but ended up spending the funds on a new
scope and making do with my old dev board.

I bought EasyPIC4s from Circuit-Ed a coupe of years ago for
classroom instruction and they have been excellent.  They're
loaded with peripheral options, discrete LEDs, 7 segment LEDs,
character LCD, graphical LCD, DS1820, switches, potentiometers,
etc, etc.  All of the I/O pins are available on external
headers; the board takes just about every DIP 12F, 16F, and 18F
PIC; and the on-board programmer is fast and reliable.  My only
complaint is that the built-in ICD (debugger) works only with
the MikroE high level languages and not with assembly.  Even so,
they are by far my favorite dev board,

Andrew

We got dsPIC systems, on the whole I am happy with them.

A couple of issues though...
Hardware: I had problems with a USB cable that was supplied, and I had one LED that was bad.
Software: Examples are very geared towards their compiler libraries, I'd like to see more verbose comments in their examples too.

Really have not had enough time with the boards or BASIC / C compilers, too many other things that need to be done around here.
