What it does is uploads your photos to the eye-fi service.

A few things to consider after getting the card:

1) Warm up time. If you haven't used the card for awhile or move to a different Access Point/Wireless router. It will sense it can't get a connection and goes through the access point list until it gets a connection if you have multiple WPA-TKIP entries it will add to this time. Hence the slowness of getting it started. Once it knows which AP to talk to. Uploads start within a few seconds after you take the picture.

2) As i tested it. It has the maximum security of WPA/2-TKIP. It can't do AES ecryption. They say WPA/2-PSK but don't mention at what level. It may frustrate some users trying to set it up. I spend 2 hours of pain until i reduced security on my wireless router.

3) The client is only required to setup the card. Afterwards the only reason why you need it is to recieve files onto a computer or setup more wireless access point.

4) Here's the big one. It always requires an internet connection. It always has to call home to the eye-fi service. Transfer to your computer is limited to you line's UPLOAD bandwidth. What it does is uploads your photos to the eye-fi service. The eye-fi service then sends it to your online service and then waits for contact from the eye-fi Client on your computer. Once the client connects it'll start downloading the image to the computer. So you can turn your computer off. Take a bunch of pictures. Turn your computer on and it'll start downloading all the pictures.

Almost 1 YEAR UPDATE

What can i say. The company is awesome. They've kept up with updates so early adopters can "upgrade" their cards to the newest features.

The Good: The product, as advertised, effortlessly uploads photos from your camera. I am using the 'upload to my PC' option and the transfers were prompt and fast.

The Bad: While EyeFi offers the option of creating a sub-folder for groups of images based upon the Date Taken field, it oddly names the folders using the month name, e.g. November 19, 2007. So, of course, they do not sort properly.

A bigger annoyance is after uploading a picture EyeFi does not delete the image from the card in the camera. So, you'll have to verify that all of the images have been transferred before deleting anything. Considering this 2GB card can hold over 500 images for my camera this can be a daunting task.

We all know that in the future you will take photos and videos and they will wirelessly float up to the net, but camera manufacturers have failed to deliver a compelling product in the category that works with a wide variety of online services.

I have been using the eye-fi card on and off for a while now (beta and gamma programs). Overall it works very well and increases the convenience of digital photography a lot.

In my mode of use, I shoot with it around the house and then the let the photos float up wirelessly to phanfare (disclosure: I am CEO of Phanfare). With Phanfare it works especially well because I can still get to the fullsize original images from the desktop client and from my Phanfare website.

You configure the card in two places. First, you have to configure it communicate with wireless networks you trust. Second, you need to configure your account at Eye-fi to transmit to the online service of your choice. That means telling Eye-fi your username and password, for example, for Phanfare. You do this once.

After the initial provisioning, which is the most difficult step, the card just works. Because the camera sees the card as a standard SD card there is absolutely no increase in complexity from the camera side. You shoot and the images show up in your online account. The good folks at Eye-Fi set an option for Phanfare to allow you to suppress publication of new images by default. That way I can shoot, and then go into Phanfare and choose what to publish, shoeboxing the rest.

Because there is no way to see what the card is doing from the camera side, you need to have the camera on long enough to transfer the images.

Verified Purchase
After reading the advertising on one of the tech review sites, had to have one. The idea of having photos downloaded directly to the hard drive and skipping the card reader end of it was very appealing. It was delivered more quickly then promised - and nicely packaged. Very easy to set up just like the review said, and the first downloads went flawlessly. However, after the initial use the card would not download the photos every time a new photo was taken, and sometimes not work at all unless the eye-fi software was re-started, etc. Even after adding a WDS wireless access point to give it an excellent connection to the network, still does not connect every time, even after considerable tweaking. The software does not offer many options and there is very little documentation available for the more technically inclined that would want to troubleshoot. It does work as advertised most of the time, but not all of the time.
Summary:
If you are expecting a product that works every time you want to use it, this is probably not what you want. You'll likely end up fiddling with it to get it to work, as it seems to have some bugs yet. Your results may vary. I'll give it 5 stars for concept and a reasonable price, but only 1 star for function, as it fails to transfer photos reliably.
12-5-07 Update:
After spending way too much time with trial and error (I don't expect much in the way of tech support on a $100 item) it's working much better then when I initially reviewed it. While the card has some limitations on what type of wireless access points it will connect to; for example, it won't connect to a WDS AP, I'll bump the rating to 4 stars.
