      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.

      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.

      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.

      slow adapter

      This adapter is not worth the purchase and misleads customers. It does not work at the promised speeds.

      A bit pricey but works

      I bought this for my new 2018 MacBook Air. Read all the reviews first and did a bit of research. I believe this adaptor uses the same Realtek chipset as the Ank I bought this for my new 2018 MacBook Air. Read all the reviews first and did a bit of research. I believe this adaptor uses the same Realtek chipset as the Anker version, for which there has also been a bit of discussion (and Anker does not make junk products) so I downloaded and installed the latest Mac driver as described in one of the Anker reviews. From the Realtek website, go to "HOME > Downloads > Communications Network ICs > Network Interface Controllers > 10/100/1000M Gigabit Ethernet > USB 3.0 > Software". It's a little annoying because you have to enter your e-mail address, then get sent a link to use for the download, but it worked fine. When turning off wifi and using only the adapter along with a Cat-7 cable, I can consistently get speeds of 850 to 950 mbps, consistent with what I'm getting on my iMac, so this adapter does support gigabit ethernet and seem to work as advertised. For those that are having difficulty with it, maybe try the driver update and see if that does the trick for you. I give this four stars instead of five because (1) I shouldn't need to install a driver update (and there is no information on Belkin's website about driver updates) and (2) it's a little pricey for what it is.

      Slow performance - inferior product

      For the old Macbook Air, Apple sold an excellent Thunderbolt to Ethernet adaptor. That no longer works with the new Macbook Air Retina, because the new MacBook For the old Macbook Air, Apple sold an excellent Thunderbolt to Ethernet adaptor. That no longer works with the new Macbook Air Retina, because the new MacBook Air does not accept Thunderbolt (only Thunderbolt 3) -- unless you double dongle ... and Apple does NOT make a Thunderbolt 3 to Ethernet adaptor (which is simply ridiculous). So, instead, I purchased from the Apple store this Belkin USB-C (not Thunderbolt 3) to Ethernet adaptor ... even though it gets an appalling rating on the Apple store (most users give it 1 out of 5 stars). I then measured transfer speeds using the Belkin adaptor, and in every test, the Belkin USB-C adaptor has been slower on the new Macbook Air Retina than using Apple's Thunderbolt to ethernet adaptor on the old Mac - an appalling outcome. That is going backwards ... not going forwards. Action needed: bring out a Thunderbolt 3 to Ethernet adaptor. Do the same for HDMI too. It is absurd bringing out new Macs supporting Thunderbolt 3, and not even offering adaptors that support them.
