This review is from: Plugable USB 2.0 to 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN Wired Network Adapter for Windows, Mac, Chromebook, Linux, and Specific Android Tablets (ASIX AX88178 Chipset)
Pros: -Purchased the adapter specifically for the NVIDIA Shield.
-Works as advertised; no drivers, just plug and play.
-Getting gigabit LAN speeds.
-Sale $25 and free 2 day shipping!
Cons: Priced higher than other ethernet adapters, however other adapters do no work with the shield. So technically not a CON.
