I like it.
Pros: Works perfectly. I can connect it to a virtual machine.
Other Thoughts: Since IT won't let me create my own subnets on their switches anymore, I use this for development in my office. I can connect to the IT network via the integrated NIC to maintain internet and network drive function, and I can connect to other hardware via a switch on my desk. I usually develop in VMs, and this works well for that.

Pros: Compact, USB, gigabit
Cons: Doesn't actually work
Other Thoughts: I have the (presumably older USB21000S1) version of this and it "just works" on Mac, PC, Linux, BSD etc. This one doesn't seem to work on any of those. I'm going to assume that it is DOA and try another one. Otherwise, I'll be searching for the older unit.

Almost plug and play
Pros: I bought this for friend's computer (HP) that the NIC stopped working (built in on motherboard) It worked right away. Loaded the software, restarted the computer, plugged it in while it was re-starting.
Cons: Still had to restart the computer. Not USB 3.0
Other Thoughts: Cable is long enough to get it out of the way of other components, but not long enough to bring it to the front of the PC where it is visible.
