The Prototyping Shield makes it easy for you to design custom circuits. You can solder parts to the prototyping area to create your project, or use it with a small solderless breadboard (not included) to quickly test circuit ideas without having to solder. It's got extra connections for all of the Arduino I/O pins, and it's got space to mount through-hole and surface mount integrated circuits. It's a convenient way to make your custom circuit and Arduino into a single module.
A wide prototyping area with some extra features:
1.0 Arduino pinout
1 Reset button
1 ICSP connector
14 pin SMD footprint (50 mils pitch)
20 pin Through Hole footprint (100 mils pitch)

The board also has a few other great features often not found on shields - a DIP-20 prototype area with a perfed ground/power strip, an SOIC-14 with through solder points, and an edge perf with alternating larger pins, to allow for soldering of up to a 5 pin screw terminal.
They even did an interesting thing with the solder mask - even though there isn't a formal silk screen on the bottom, the solder mask relief has sort of a ghost of the text which is still legible.
Footprint of the board follows the Uno outline, so can fit in the same enclosures, and retains three of the four mounting holes (the one by the DC power entry connector had to be omitted to fit the DIP).
My only very slight complaint would be that it would have been nice to have the "~" tilde sign by the PWMs, and the TX/RX by D1/0, but since that appears on the Uno, and in any ref, it's a minor thing.
NOTE: I want to add, after working more with these, that what I reviewed is all true. That said, you need to be aware on one possible pitfall - if not a weakness - in the design. The RESET button TRACE that runs from the button down across the board to the actual RESET pin of the stacking header, runs between the rows of soldering pins. Because these soldering pins are very closely spaced, this leaves VERY little room for this trace. If you solder to these particular places on the board (it would be difficult not to need them), then BEWARE that you might solder onto this trace. If you have SKILLZ, this is no problem. But a little ham-fisted, big tip on a hot iron spells trouble (I see it all the time). On the good side (I don't consider this a problem personally), the trace is surface-treated and won't attract solder bridges. Just FYI folks. That's all.
