      Extremely Poor Design

      Firstly, I should mention that I am forced to use this as the 2015 macbooks (retina) do not come equipped with an Ethernet port.

For the price you pay, you'd think that some thought would have been put into designing this piece; here are some of the problems I've faced in using this: It is extremely sensitive to popping out of your laptop. As the Thunderbolt ports are very small, any time you move your laptop while connected, it's probably an 80% chance that the wire will slide out if you're not aware and cautious. Aside from the above, it still is prone to being lodged out due to the cube-like part of the adapter being caught on the edge of a table (for those who use their laptops on a table). All this is troubling when you prefer to maintain a steady connection to the internet. And to top it all off, mine has suddenly stopped working as well.. makes you realise how the quality of Apple's products are truly racing down the hill.

      I'm using it with my MacBook Pro, it doesn't easily slide out, it's very portable, and it's exactly what I need in places where the Wi-Fi signal is very weak. M I'm using it with my MacBook Pro, it doesn't easily slide out, it's very portable, and it's exactly what I need in places where the Wi-Fi signal is very weak. My friend bought one almost 1 month ago and it's still working fine. I'm not sure why the other reviews are not that positive about this great product (great quality and design).
