      As described, but beware of bad drivers

      This adapter gets the job done. However, on OS X Mountain Lion and Sierra I had to update the Realtek chipset driver to fix a kernel panic problem. Unfortunatel This adapter gets the job done. However, on OS X Mountain Lion and Sierra I had to update the Realtek chipset driver to fix a kernel panic problem. Unfortunately the Apple review system won't let me paste links, but if you google "rtl8153 driver update time" the first link (in my search results) takes you to a download page. Version 1.0.15 was crashing, and version 1.0.16 (released Nov 16 2016) has the fix.

It does get warm to the touch during extended network transfers but other than that it gets the job done. I am finding it particularly useful to transfer, using migration assistant, data over to my new 2016 MacBook Pro via Time Machine which is hard-wired to my network (it's a first gen 1TB model). My time machine backup consists of data from my older 2009 17inch MacBook Pro. Initially I tried using Migration Assistant to transfer Mac to Mac using a direct ethernet connection between the two devices, but I was unable to complete that transfer. However now that I am transferring an account all all its programs and data via time Machine to my new MacBook Pro, the process is running much smoother. Because I am using the Belkin Ethernet adapter, I am getting consistent transfer speeds between 14 MB a second and 20 MB a second. I am very pleased.

      Seems to Run Hot

      I've been using it for only a day to connect my Comcast router to my new MacBook Pro, but it's always hot to the touch when the computer is running. I'm concern I've been using it for only a day to connect my Comcast router to my new MacBook Pro, but it's always hot to the touch when the computer is running. I'm concerned that the heat will shorten its useful life.

      Piece of junk

I got one that was dead out of the box and the other gets really hot and requires a driver upgrade to not use 60% of cpu. Which very few people even know about and it does not update itself.

      Works but note it ONLY works on right side ports

      Couldn't find this documented anywhere, so I thought I'd post. This ONLY works on right side Thunderbolt 3 ports on the MacBook Pro 15 2016. Giving three star Couldn't find this documented anywhere, so I thought I'd post. This ONLY works on right side Thunderbolt 3 ports on the MacBook Pro 15 2016. Giving three stars because I think either Apple or Belkin should have mentioned it somewhere.

      Major issue with late 2016 MacBook Pro

      I bought this connector from an Apple Store in order to connect an audio device. Once connected via the adaptor, the CPU usage went up 60%, making the computer I bought this connector from an Apple Store in order to connect an audio device. Once connected via the adaptor, the CPU usage went up 60%, making the computer pretty much useless for any other task. Reinstalling drivers brought CPU usage down to 50% which wasn't much of an improvement. When I called Apple Care, I was told this adapter was in fact not Apple certified, and couldn't explain why this is sold in Apple Store. I hope Apple comes up with a fix for this is very inconvenient.
