I, too, can recommend only going with machined-pin sockets; anything less
isn't worth the hassle of trying to chase down phantom problems. This
goes for soldered designs as well as WW.

OTOH, it's an easy choice for me since I alread have several hundred/few
thousand of them. I don't ever expect to actually *pay* for one, unless I
need some kind of BGA or FPGA or other SMT adapter. For DIP stuff, I'm
set for life!
