Under Windows XP, it gets recognized as an USB to ATA/SATA bridge automatically, no need to install drivers.
I bought it to easily install other OS'es into my Asus EeePC netbook, and it works better than expected.
My DVD-ROM gets recognized in the BIOS, so I could install Ubuntu on my netbook without using an USB memory stick.
No cons so far. It works as expected, the built quality seems good.
It doesn't come with a European main cable, but it's no problem, as it uses a standard computer power connector.
No other thoughts.
Very useful for connecting DVD drives to netbook, it gets recognized by the BIOS.
Could be useful for other porpuses, though.
