Although, this is a very useful feature, there is tiny issue with it. By default, this widget displays pingbacks along with the comments.

However, you can easily fix this problem by adding the following code to your functions.php file.

function ccw_remove_pingback_recent_comments( $array ) {
	$array['type'] = 'comment';
	return $array;
add_filter( 'widget_comments_args', 'ccw_remove_pingback_recent_comments' );
