      As described, but beware of bad drivers

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.

      Piece of junk

      This is what happens when Apple decides to let a 3rd party make essential adapters and enforce no quality control or testing.

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.

      Reaches 140F temperature

      I purchased this product a month ago. It reaches 140F during normal usage. It is performing well, but I'm concerned it will die soon to overheating.

      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.
