Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Excellent little box if you want what is basically a computer with Ethernet and USB ports when loaded with OpenWRT firmware. Which is why I bought it.
Cons:
None really, if you're buying it with the aim to replace the firmware. But if you want to use it as is (without changing the firmware), the admin interface is in Chinese, so that may be a bit of a problem if you're not Chinese.
Other:
It doesn't have a great deal of RAM. But using the OpenWRT firmware, you can use an external USB stick.
Bottomline:
Extremely cheap wireless interface for the hobbyist. For instance, it will stream a webcam at 352x288. Interfaces with Arduino Nano through a USB 2.0 hub.
