      Works great! (But don't buy it for MBA!!!)

      Why? This is nothing wrong with the product at all and it works great! The problem is... if you are using Macbook Air and you need to connect to extra monitor Why? This is nothing wrong with the product at all and it works great! The problem is... if you are using Macbook Air and you need to connect to extra monitor with thunderbolt you are out of luck. Either have this or the thunderbolt to DVI/HDMI adpter. I never thought of this until I bought it went home and had the "Ahhhh moment". Get the USB version instead. If you never care about extra monitor ever at all or you don't need to do presentation on bigger screens then sure go ahead.

      Try checking for a Thunderbolt update if it doesn't work

      When I first plugged the Thunderbolt to Ethernet adapter into my Macbook Air nothing showed up in the Network Preferences. Tried rebooting, etc. but nothing.

Luckily I had a wireless connection available so tried Software Update and lo and behold there was a Thunderbolt Update available. Installed that and rebooted and the adapter worked perfectly.

      Very fast but.... (rMBP)

      It is a very fast adapter, bought it for my rMBP to use at uni. the issue is that it falls out VERY easily, which is somewhat of an issue for me. when working a It is a very fast adapter, bought it for my rMBP to use at uni. the issue is that it falls out VERY easily, which is somewhat of an issue for me. when working at a desk its fine, but at other times it gets knocked even just a little and it disconnects and takes a while to reconnect. This is annoying!

      stopped working after 3 months

      It worked perfectly first 3 months. Plug and go. MBPro was on the table whole time, no transfers, no awkward positions. Rubbish.
