Good thing you added that third option.
I don't have a solderless adapter, and that's for a very good reason -> pogos are evil. They're designed for temporary connections, not for permanent installations (IMO).
Well, actually the reason is that I can solder (pretty well) and I have the equipment. So for me there would be no reason on earth to use an install method that is inferior to soldering.
I understand however that there are people who don't have the tools or the means for soldering and they also have the wisdom to know their limits. For these people solderless adapter is of course a better alternative than soldering themselves. Also my purpose is not to make anyone feel bad about not soldering the chip nor am I suggesting that people who can't solder are inferior to me. Everybody has their own things that they are good at and soldering is naturally among that list for majority of people.
