yes they work
This product misses components in comparison with the 'real' esp-12E ( so cheaper) and is less stable then the original product. there have been reports these 'fake' versions also ship with 4Mbit flash instead of 32Mbit.
I imagine it's still a legit Espressif ESP8266EX onboard.
Any links to reports of inferior performance of these 'different' ESP-12Es?
Frankly, I'm more concerned about a report that many of the shipped units [ESPs in general] have weak flash (fail after 50 or so)
