Any body use these proto type boards from Radio Shack?
http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2102845
http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2102844

They seem like a cross between a Perf and Vero board
They have copper fills that the Perf boards don't, but not all holes/fills are connected.
The 276-150 has 2 rails going down the center that are connected, that you could
use for power.
The 276-149 doesn't have any connected holes/fills, this seems like this would
eliminate the need to scour out connected fills that you would have to do on Vero.
or at lest reduce the amount you would have to do.

They also have this one for IC's

They seem like a good idea and have good reviews.
Just want to know if anyone here has any experience with them?

The one in the first link looks great because it resembles a breadboard, easy transition from the breadboard to the prototype.

This is the one I get locally, which is pretty similar:

I have used all three boards, and they are ok quality and will definately work for most projects, but the second link perf boards I have had pads* lift. (probably due to poor soldering techniques back in the day.)
Rolling Eyes

But now I use allelectronics.com strip boards because they are much easier to use and a little bit better quality imo.

Good Luck!

I have used the one that droffset links with good success. As mentioned, the transition from breadboard to protoboard is easy. I used to see large card-slot sized boards with that pattern but I haven't seen them that way in a while.
