This is a very nice LEGO MINDSTORMS and TECHNIC compatible base plate. Although I have not had a chance to work with it too much yet, it seems to be very well made. I tried putting a few TECHNIC pins and an axle into the holes and they fit fine and were easy to remove. They didn't fit quite as tight as they would when using standard LEGO parts though.
I can easily envision using it as the chassis for a LEGO MINDSTORMS robot or as a base for a ball or brick sorting robot.

Pro: I have not had much time to play with this since I purchased it. I did check to make sure that LEGO parts fit properly and they did. I bought it to play with LEGO parts in preparation for a bigger project and for other things I might think of in the future and it looks like it will do fine. It arrived quickly and undamaged in the US mail. Finish and appearance are just like LEGO to my untrained eyes.
Con: Darned expensive, but I knew that before I purchased it.

Built a LEGO Mindstorms Robot using these plates as a foundation. They worked amazingly well!
