Pros:
Does what it does. If you look at the picture and read the text on the socket end (says "iphone") you pretty much know what it's for. The plugs are color coded with the standard green=headphones, pink=mic. Plus there are descriptions silk screened on the side of each plug's housing that again, tell you what each plug is for (mic on the mic plug, L/R on the headphone plug). Pretty much idiot-proof unless you're blind, color blind, and/or can't read english.
Cons:
the color-coded plugs are a bit garish. but no big deal.
The wire could use some reinforcement - seems kind of thin. But again, for less than $3 it's not a big deal.
Other:
Unless you've never plugged a headset with two plugs (one for mic and one for audio) into a computer this adapter is a no brainer. Works great with my iPhone and I would think it would also work with other 3.5mm TRRR headphones.
Bottomline:
if you need one, buy it. if you don't, buy one and give it to a friend that needs one.
