Does anyone know if Arduino Mega support up to 16 servos?

I have give up Arduino Mega for now since it's not working properly no matter which method I tried and end up using "Renbotics ServoShield" to operate it.


However I don't really feel comfortable with this shield because:

Thanks for everyone who helps me here~ :)

Ah~ Sweet! I didn't know the first two exists. Thanks for the info.
