Anyone Have the Arduino Duo Shield Sparkfun Brand version? Answered

I'm just wondering if it's worth buying their Duo Shield since I have no other option to get the official one and just wanting to know if anyone had problems with their version before on the Rev 3 Duo.

Many had said it doesn't fit correctly due to the USB making it hard to snap on to the pins and I would love to get one if I had the chance, or I should avoid their version completely and find another retailer that sells the Official Duo Shield? I really want to prototype a circuit on it and make it permanent and I can buy another one and do the same thing again.

I don't wanna make the wrong choice of buying it and I can't use it do the flaw they done to their branded Duo Shields.
