      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.

      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.

      Not really gigabit

      This adapter is only recognized as a 100BaseTX, even if you try to set it manually. Returned it and bought a Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 adapter sinc This adapter is only recognized as a 100BaseTX, even if you try to set it manually. Returned it and bought a Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 adapter since I already had an old Thunderbolt to Ethernet adapter from Apple. This combo may not be elegant, but it gives me full gigabit speed.

      Belkin Gigabit Ethernet Adapter does not lock the RJ45 head upon inserted

      I hope that this will be a revelation of the problem that most people faced when they used this product. Gotten the Belkin gigabit Ethernet adapter today. I'v I hope that this will be a revelation of the problem that most people faced when they used this product. Gotten the Belkin gigabit Ethernet adapter today. I've read the reviews of many whom mentioned that the connection is loose and they often got disconnected from the network they working on. I'm a little bit skeptical of the reviews given, for I know and believe that Belkin does produced world class product. After I have plug in the ethernet adapter to my MBP 2017 and the CAT 7 cable, it works almost immediate, very good network connection achieved. I realised that the RJ45 head did not being lock when inserted into the ethernet adapter and this will cause the RJ45 connection loose, like what others has commented. I've start to compare with other ethernet adapter like the Apple own Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter and also ASUS Ethernet Adapter and found that both ethernet adapter able to lock the RJ45 head (means not easily able to pull out unless you press the RJ45 head release lever to disconnect). There I realised the Belkin Ethernet Adapter that I just bought doesn't have the construct to hold or lock the RJ45 head when being inserted. As such, this may lead to disconnection of network if some movement or knock to the connection. Hope this review is constructive and help other realised what happened.
