      I was ready to throw out my Gateway Netbook I got from Verizon when the ethernet port stopped working, and Verizon's tech support was useless addressing the problem. Then I saw this item and decided to try it. Great device that performs flawlessly. I have used it on my my Apple MacBook Air loaded with Mac OS X, my Compaq and Gateway netbooks loaded with linux and my Dell notebook loaded with Windows 10, and have not had any problems. It says it's USB 3.0, but it is backward compatible with USB 2.0 standard. My notebooks and netbook PCs are both over 5 years old, but it still performed well with them. I noticed no difference in performance between this device and the Compaq's built in ethernet port. Good device, and to me it is well worth the cost.

      Would of been a 5 start product for me if the HDMI arc popping wasn't happening, and for no reason the led volume lights on the bar just decided to not light up at all I had to unplug and remove it from my Samsung smart TV and plug it back in and let my tv recognize it again. For the price I paid plus over $150 in rewards I got this system for about just what the tax on it was in NY. So I am very pleased with this system so far. I watched a 4k move on Amazon prime (Terminator genisys) looked and sounded beautiful on my set up. Also played a PS4 game with and sounded amazing as well. Simple hook up. Definitely a space saver system just the short mini bar and the sub which packs some punch wow. Def recommend this system !

      I bought this converter because the Toshiba 2 in 1 laptop (10.6 inch screen) I also purchased, did not have a dedicated Ethernet port....nice to have it available when needed, like when at home, doing a extra long or critical download. But usually would use on a wireless connection, when traveling. So now I can have both the USB port option or the Ethernet port option by using this converter. Yes it is true that I am giving up a USB port, when I use this converter, but at least I can have the Ethernet when I need it. I have been using this device for over a month and it has worked without a single problem. An even better option would be the alternate model of this device where it has an extra USB also built into the one converter...then I would not lose any USB ports while the Ethernet was in use.

      I work at a university with multiple buildings and occasional wifi issues. My new HP Spectre, like many of the current ultrabooks, lacks an ethernet jack, so this adapter does the trick. It also helps to have the gigabit speed when doing streaming video conferencing--my boss does this with the exact same adapter. Some reviewers noted that they had to update the driver, and I guess this is true--my Win10+HP combo did the upgrade so fast I didn't even know that the driver fix was going on. I liked the aluminum finish and sturdier build of this one -vs- the Insignia, and while it was a few dollars more, it is a tax write-off anyway.

      I bought this as a result of a recommendation from a friend. This adapter is literally "plug and go" if you are using Win10. I needed to be hardwired for work but my laptop does not have an ethernet cable port. I had a meltdown. My friend told me I was fine if i have USB ports. He said all I needed was an adapter and I would be good to go. Boy was he right! I bought this j5 adapter and it worked like a charm right out of the box. I have never had an unstable connection using this adapter. I would purchase again.

      Great product, never heats up upon extended use

      The USB adapter comes with a driver CD, but it was automatically detected on my Windows 10 laptop and the Lumia 950XL windows phone. I got this to connect my Lumia 950XL to Ethernet. Have been using this extensively for the last several weeks without a glitch - moreover, unlike the other adapters that I have from Apple, Plugable and Rankie - this one never heats up even after extended usage - it might be that it has a good metal casing dissipating the heat fast. Note: This adapter will not be recognised by by the iOS10 on iPhone or iPad - you will need the adapter from Apple for that.

      I bought this to replace a bad Ethernet port on my desktop. The PC does have usb 3.0 ports so this was the easiest fix. (prefer a wired connection on this desktop for frequent data transfers from a NAS). Pros - I can not provide raw data at the moment, but the connection is faster than the original Ethernet. Easy to install, no opening case to replace a NiC. Best Buy in store online order pickup was quick and efficient and I did not have to wait for UPS. Cons - Once in a while I turn on PC and the drivers for this device fail to load. Rebooting has always solved the problem. (Going to run HDD diag to ensure failing drive is not the issue here)

      Connects but seems to have a layer that keeps it

      Because BestBuy doesn't carrying the internal cards for Ethernet to be used in desktops, I purchased this. It was a good price and good brand. It installed easy enough and allowed me on the internet, but I was looking to use a specific program that is multiuser on it and it seems to have blocked that ability to connect to that multiuser program. I've check Firewalls, Antivirus and all the usual hindrances, but come down to the only change being the Ethernet device which would have it's own drivers and possible layers that the multiuser program can't get past. Otherwise I would give this a better rating.
