Really handy and cheap – Ethernet Shield with Wiznet W5100 Ethernet Chip / TF Slot Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Gives you access to output from Arduino to the net Cheap compared to others - have seen these fr over $20 Basically just duplicates the pins on the arduino when you mount it on to the top of the Arduinio board
Cons:
You will need to be careful when pushing it on to get all the pins lined up exactly perfectly - this took a little bit of time to get right, since then I havent removed it though
Other:
I also got a TL WR703N router and have it configured so that Arduino can connect via ethernet shield and then use the router to connect wirelessly to network. The WR703N has a lot of other good uses as well but this is nice and makes it all very portable
Bottomline:
Great value, better than anywhere else I have seen
