In summary: If you are trying to move on to AVR programming from Arduinos, I would suggest spending some extra money and getting the ATMEL ICE ISP. Also the 328pXplained board is useful because tutorials online use it.
I’m a beginner when it comes to working with standalone AVR chips, but I’ve been using Arduinos for years, I am employed as an embedded programmer, and I am pretty good at making things work. I bought this so I could use it with Atmel and AVR studio, and I had a hell of a time getting it to work. There is limited support online. I found myself hopelessly deep in the forum rabbit hole before I decided that this product was not what I was looking for. I understand this device works with AVRdude… ANNND that if I spent another few days figuring out what firmware it should run, or what usb drivers should be used to communicate with it, and if I add this and that to this and that, EVENTUALLY it may have been the tool I needed, but I was tired of flailing around, and I bought an ATMEL ICE ISP instead… and it’s EXACTLY what I was looking for.
