It works perfectly in GNU/Linux. You can use it with HDD or with CD/DVD drives. No problems with all the disk i tested. Tha price here is half of what i found in the shops in my city for the same product.
It has no european mains cable, but it works with an spare computer main cable.
I have used it to make backups of HDD without having to install them on my computer, i've used it to connect DVD/RW drives to computers without one to make backups or to (re)install OS. Really useful to have it around when you make technical service for family and friends ;-) .
