1 out of 5 eggsDon't rely on this device

Pros: Easy to setup and while it works, it works well.

Cons: It will fail on you. I purchased device couple months ago to use on business trip. Installed and used the device for 3 days. Dead. Plug it into any USB port and windows reports USB device has malfunctioned.
I'd have been better off to try another device.

5 out of 5 eggsYou can't beat this for ease and price

Pros: This is easy to install--you can be up and working with essentially another on-board (100M only) NIC inside of 5 minutes, for much less than you can by the hardware for a PC.

Cons: Downside is that it extends about 2.5 to 3" from the usb port, and with the added weight of the Ethernet cable, you wind up having something that is prone to being pulled or kicked out. A simple plastic anchor of sorts could have been fashioned to work around this. Even if it falls out though, it takes fully 10seconds for it to transition to up/up once you plug it back in.

4 out of 5 eggsExcelent

Pros: Got my dinosaur pc back online so I'd have to say excellent.

Cons: Not the thinnest device and drivers not compatible with windows xp.

Other Thoughts: If it were thinner and more user friendly, I'd give it 5 eggs.

5 out of 5 eggsIts cost effective and It works

Pros: Took it out of the box, plugged in my Win7 64-bit PC, found the drivers and off I went.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Because of the design of it will dangle off the back of the PC if your using it in a tower. I recommened just getting a USB extension cable and setting on the desk or the ground. That way it wont shake so much when you have Ethernet cable plugged in.

2 out of 5 eggsDidn't work with Chumby One

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Didn't work for my specific application. My Chumby One did not recognize it. The Chumby is usually setup to connect wirelessly. However, some wireless security setups require a special additional authentication that the Chumby was not designed for and so a USB-ethernet adapter is required. Not all work.

5 out of 5 eggsReliable & Compatable

Pros: We've been using this as an add in for network testing and network installs. Works well with Windows XP, 7, 2008 as well as multiple flavors of Linux.
We ran a constant 30Mbs through it for over a week with no problems where a laptop internal nic failed after a couple of hours of this.
It has multiple indicator lights on it as well.

Cons: Cheap feeling (not a suprise).

Other Thoughts: Inexpensive and works well. If you are looking for something to go behind a PC that doesn't move or if you need something for plugging in and testing.
I personally would not use this with a laptop or or netbook as the main nic. I don't think it would hold up long term.
