yea, I prefer posts when using a prototype board.
When you have a double sided copper prototype board,
you can use each row of pins as an anchor,
one row soldered on top and the other row soldered on the bottom
This helps make it rugged enough for a prototype
Just as with DB connectors
Now a right angle connector would be ideal,
but you have to take what you can get sometimes with the supply.
On the User Port enclosures,
I think Hammond might have a good option,
Looking there soon
