      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 slow slow

      Compared the old macbook dongel that has thunderbolt with this one. Got close to 1000Mbits. With this Belkin USB-C dongel I get around 200-300 Mbits So avoi Compared the old macbook dongel that has thunderbolt with this one. Got close to 1000Mbits.

      stopped working after 2weeks

      this is just crazy, it is a 2nd connector that stops working shortly after buying... Is Apple blocking non-Apple products connected to USB-C ? It is just crazy this is just crazy, it is a 2nd connector that stops working shortly after buying... Is Apple blocking non-Apple products connected to USB-C ? It is just crazy how the non-Apple stuff is not compatible with Apple Mac products. Can't be a coincidence I think. In Windows world I could plug literally anything to USB and it would just work like a charm for years.. even Chinese manufactured devs worth 3$! For Mac everything costs at least 60$, even the very simple hardware, like connectors... non-Apple converters are also far more expensive than the PC counterparts. Non-Apple connectors seem either not working at all, or are very unstable, to the point you can't rely on the connector.. Shame Apple, shame... I think this is going to be my first and last Mac Book Pro - all shiny and powerful but can't do stuff that 200 $ laptops can do reliably which is essential for getting work done..
