- Great price.
- Gets full 100Mbps speed. That's right, 12 MiB/s of raw transfer speed. Unlike the other ones, this is real USB 2.0.
- Works perfectly with Linux using module mcs7830, which is in mainline kernel.
- Fairly sturdy. I stressed it a little to see if it drops signal or anything when wiggling the wires. Nothing of the sort happened.
- Works in promiscuous mode.

Definitely a must-have. You just never know when you'll need a 2nd Ethernet port.
