      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.

      Works out of the box

      Worked right out of the box with my 2016 MacBook Pro, no need to mess with drivers. My internet speed increased from 10 Mbps downloading over wifi to about 600 Worked right out of the box with my 2016 MacBook Pro, no need to mess with drivers. My internet speed increased from 10 Mbps downloading over wifi to about 600 Mbps with ethernet. The adapter gets noticeably warm but I wouldn't say hot. 1 star off for the heat and for being overpriced, but works as advertised.

      Not working after 3 months

So glad that it stopped working after 3 months (again sarcasm intended). Maybe its time to start looking at Android phones and Surface Pro laptops that don't require so many add-ons in order to work properly? I don't know that my company can afford the true cost of owning a Mac as its higher than its ever been only minus the quality.

      Avoid!

      So, wired Ethernet is sill required in many situations and the Belkin adapter is the only USB-C Ethernet adapter in many Apple Stores. Got my first one with my So, wired Ethernet is sill required in many situations and the Belkin adapter is the only USB-C Ethernet adapter in many Apple Stores. Got my first one with my new MacBook Pro 13" about a year ago and never got it to work, so returned it. Instead got a cheap one from eBay that worked fine until I lost it somewhere, like so many other adapters that are required to connect modern MacBooks to the outside world. Went to the local Apple Store and again, the Belikin Ethernet adapter was the only one available so I took a chance and bought it. -Even this adapter did not work! One would think that if it was a driver issue, it should have been included in the latest OSX 10.13.5 so I don't think thats the issue. It is also stated on the Belkin website that no additional driver is needed. The device still gets hot though, so probably it will drain battery even though it is working. Please remove this adapter from the stores and provide us something with higher quality!
