Well, I would have said Melzi 2.0 but I'm dealing with a bad atmega1284p chip at the moment.

I tried to flash the new version of repetier firmware 92 to the board and ended up with a bricked chip and a blue lcd screen with no characters on it.

 

So I decided I would take the plunge and order a ramps 1.4 board along with an arduino 2560. I haven't decided on what drivers I'm going to run yet but will probably end up using TMC2100.

I've since removed the bricked 1284p from my melzi board and will be soldering a new one in its place. Hopefully I can revive the board and flash it to Marlin.

 

Almost forgot, I also ordered the Full Graphic Smart Controller lcd screen. I hope it turns out to be as good as it looks.

 

Here are some pics from the net of the items I have on the way:

That full graphic smart controller is good. Many people are switching over to it.
