It is exactly like the original Italian shield, and it works out of the box (bubble wrap, actually!) with the standard libraries (I am using Arduino 1.0.1).
The uSD card reader and the ethernet port CAN BE used simultaneously, which is a great plus.
Every single demo project available in the Arduino IDE works perfectly with this shield.
Also, it is 1/3 the price of the original shield.
None. Absolutely None.
Some of the pins were a bit bend, but that is not a con of the product, but it has to do with how careful people handled the package (mail ppl). That is no big deal, because they can be fixed, but I wish DX taked special precaution with Arduino shield, because the extended pins are a bit fragile.
Having lan/wan connectivity on any arduino project really broadens the possibilities of any project. It is a must have for any arduino hobbist or projectist.
