Works like it should Posted by: from: Bettendorf,IA on So we get the new college boy a brand new Apple laptop for college because he absolutely had to have it. Of course Apple no longer has half the ports you need so you have to buy accessories to make the thing work like my ten year old MacBook Pro does. The dorm room has ethernet connection so off to the Best Buy to get him set up. Sales guy says this will do the trick and apparently it does since the kid never said otherwise. Just like the tuition,room,board, books that you never hear "Thank you" for...

Fantastic Posted by: from: on I'm only writing this review because Best Buy enticed me with extra reward points. What the he** am I supposed to write about a a wifi adapter? That it works? Yes, it works. You plug it in and the freakin thing works. Fantastic.

Fast but think twice Posted by: from: on Granted, this product is nice but I'd advise anyone to think twice about their needs before purchasing. I realized after I got it that a MacBook Air can only take one thunderbolt adapter. And the reason I usually need an adapter is because I'm at a conference podium where the wifi isn't usable. You can't use both this and a display port adapter at the same time so I had to also get a USB adapter. This adapter is super fast so I plan to keep it for any time I need to do big transfers. But definitely consider your needs a bit more carefully than I did.

Works like a charm on a mid-2015 MBP 15" retina Posted by: from: on Works like a charm on a mid-2015 MBP 15" retina in OS X; this adapter can be plugged in at any time and will be recognized by the OS. Windows is a mixed bag--which is not this adapter's fault. I have discovered through trial-and-error that Thunderbolt devices are NOT hot-pluggable with bootcamp and Windows 10 (not sure about 7, 8, 8.1). If you have this device plugged in when booting your Mac in a Windows 10 bootcamp it will be detected and work flawlessly. If you unplug it, you must reboot in order to plug it in and use it again--this is a limitation of your MBP/bootcamp (not sure which), NOT the adapter's fault! Apple states on it's website that Macs built after 2014 can hot-plug Thunderbolt devices in Windows but this is not my experience w/ either this adapter or the Apple Thunderbolt monitor I use.

Great accessory for MacBook Pro Posted by: from: on Ok, it was probably better when the MacBook Pro had an Ethernet port built in, but hey they need to make more money with selling the accessories. I found an open box item on bestbuy.com so that saved me some money. This is a great thing to have though when you have a large amount of data that you need to transfer.

Exactly as needed Posted by: from: on Best to get genuine Apple products as they are the most reliable. Don't worry about the connecting dropping or Mac not detecting the network adapter. Sure you can find cheaper alternatives, but save yourself the headache of dropped connections and just get something reliable.

Apple Product Posted by: from: on I purchased this at Best Buy after reading several reviews of offbrand adapters. The offbrand adapters did not get very good reviews. The reviews for the genuine Apple adapter were very good. So far it works very well.

Just What I was looking for Posted by: from: Pewaukee, WI on I purchased a Macbook Pro and didn't realize that there was no Ethernet Port directly available. Since I come from a Windows World, I never anticipated that something so basic would be missing. In any case, I purchased this and it works well and transparently.
