Pros:
This is a standard shield for arduino to add a network interface. It's works out of the box, just by adding the Ethernet examples that come with the arduino sdk. The price is also ok.
Cons:
None so far. My only problem was the shipping package which did not protect the shield during the transport from China. It arrived with one side completely bent. Not a big deal because it was straightforward to put back.
Other:
The shield is useful for nice projects. The possibility of making network enabled projects is amazing
Bottomline:
For the price, build quality, and easy of use it is a no brain to buy
