USB 3.0 to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter
Speed up your wired internet connection using this USB 3.0 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter from Monoprice!
This adapter allows you to get improved network speeds on any laptop or on a desktop without having to install a new network card. It features 1000 Mbps Gigabit Ethernet speeds and is backwards compatible with 10/100 Mbps connections. The SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface means that the USB port will not slow down your Gigabit Ethernet speed.
The adapter draws all the power it needs from the USB port it is plugged into and therefore needs no external power supply or source. It also contains all the drivers it needs for Plug & Play installation on Windows® (XP, Vista®, 7, and 8), Mac® OS, Linux, and Android™ systems. The USB 3.0 connector head features a slim design so that it won't block other adjacent or stacked ports.

PROS: - Works well

Monoprice is a great company with terrific prices and return policy with very quick and reliable delivery services.
CONS: Package indicates there are indicator lights, yellow, green - These lights do not work - but all else is terrific. When I used Monoprice online help they did not even know they had this device. Was not easy to find in their look up
PROS: Convenience, flexibility, price
CONS: Not quite plug and play
PROS: What's not to love?
I'm taking off one star for the overall fit and finish of the unit, but that shouldn't dissway you from using this unit. At this price point, it is a complete value. It would be nice to have a white version to choose from.
Overall an excellent unit.
PROS: Small, lightweight, works well, no drivers needed
CONS: I haven't found any yet - possibly the plastic construction. It doesn't feel substantial like something made by Apple or the j5 Create adapters.
PROS: Plug and play, mostly...
Full speed, copies at least as fast as my hard drive (400mpbs)
CONS: Occasionally, it doesn't "catch", but unplug/replug and it's fine.
Runs hot if cable not plugged in (so just unplug it)
