    Pros: Lightweight, case is sturdy.
    Works on Linux, Mac OS X (Snow Leopard), haven't tested it on Windows. Linux detects it as an "ASIX AX88772 USB 2.0 Ethernet" and used the usbnet and asix kernel modules.
    Cons: Rattles a bit when shaken, making it feel a tad cheap.
    Case could be smaller - this thing is WAY bulkier than the tiny USB-to-ethernet dongle Apple makes for MacBook Air.
    Not gigabit.
    Requires a proprietary driver on Mac and Windows. I was sort of expecting it to detect as a generic USB ethernet gadget or something of the sort.

    It works great in Linux; plugged it in, installed and it was picked right up. I used this to convert an old laptop into a firewall running Smoothwall, no problems. None Of course it's going to be a little slow - it's USB, it won't be gigabit networking. I didn't need it to be any faster than my 5mbit internet anyway, so for my purposes it worked wonderfully.
