      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

      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.

      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.

      Does not come close to 1Gbps

      This adapter simply does not deliver 1 Gbps speeds. The fastest download speed I was able to produce was ~160 Mbps with this adapter. If I simply unplugged the This adapter simply does not deliver 1 Gbps speeds. The fastest download speed I was able to produce was ~160 Mbps with this adapter. If I simply unplugged the Ethernet/Adapter and used WiFi (802.11ac) instead, I saw dramatically higher throughput (over 600 Mbps). This is a very slow adapter.

The only fix is to reboot the computer with the adapter connected - it may not connect if you install once the computer is booted. This also happens with my external USB-C HD, but not my USB-C to -B, or VGA adapters.
