Pros:
Adapter just works, giving maximum USB 2.0 performance of 8.0 Mbps with my Ubuntu 9.04. No drivers needed, recognized immediately, obtained IP address by DHCP from my home router and seamlessly integrate my PC to home hetwork.
Cons:
Tried it with my iMac it doesn't reconized by Mac OS X 10.6.4. Installed provided drivers and get a kernel panic. Unfortunately I can not find recent drivers for Mac.
Other:
USB socket cord is not fixed and therefore one should not disconnect USB by pulling the cord, as it may just tear off. But I never disconnect my devices by pulling cord, so it is not a concern for me.
Bottomline:
I wish that Red LED on case to be replaced with standard LEDs in the Ethernet socket. But this is just a wish, and this adapter from DealExtreme just do it's job very good!
