    Works well - most of the time

    A lot better than other cheap third party Ethernet adaptors on a MacBook Pro 2016. However, now and and then it can take a few minutes after a reboot to actually initialise the network which can be pretty annoying.

    Works well at most functions.

    This WHITE Belkin USC-C to Gig-Ethernet adapter (model#: "HJKF2ZM/A" / part# "F2CU040dsWHTAPL") is currently exclusive to Apple, and works fine for virtually all Ethernet applications one needs.

    I personally have tried this adapter connected directly to a maxed-out 15" MBP 2016, and it works fine. Also tried connecting to the back of one of my two LG 5K Displays, then into the same MBP over the display's Thunderbolt 3 cable; again, all fine (display sync/85W power+MBP charging/ethernet network access – all rolled into one connection!).

    Furthermore, it seems to work for pro users who need NetBoot functionalities for these machines too, so can be useful for those needing to access such tasks.

    The only thing it doesn't have are lights on it to tell you are connected. Typically ethernet devices with lights will show red if not connecting, amber if connecting at 10/100 speed, and green if connecting at full 10/100/1000 gigabit speed. It's not a big deal though IMO, as one can tell if you're connected by simple testing anyway, and some users may not even like the lights blinking away annoyingly as they try and work, either.

    But apart from the latter issue (if one did want lights), if works as expected, at a price that's not too bad. Buy without hesitation.
