1 out of 5 eggsDrops connections after extended usage

Pros: Small, lightweight, easy setup.

Cons: Drops connections after extended usage.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this back when the old style blue plastic version was being phased out. My co-worker has used several of the blue style and continues to have no problems with them. The one I purchased is the one now shown, when Trendnet redesigned the package to the smaller white package. For very light usage, it works very well. However, any sort of long term usage causes mine to fail. I was testing an embedded device by sending pings every 100mS for several days in a row. The unit gets warm, and drops out. It cannot be trusted to hold a connection.

Near as I can tell, the only thing that changed between the blue version and the white version is the packaging. This leads me to believe that there's a heat issue with the smaller packaging.

I cannot recommend this to anyone, and I will be replacing it with another brand ASAP.

For what it's worth, most (if not all) of these devices, from all different brands use the same IC, made by ASIX. This one uses the AX88772, which is a USB 2.0 to 10/100 MBPS Ethernet. I am now using a USB 2.0 to 10/100/1000 MBPS Ethernet adapter that I'm borrowing until my USB 3.0 to 10/100/1000 MBPS Ethernet adapter comes in the mail. It's all the same family of IC internally.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks with PFSense

Pros: I bought this so that I could add a second network card to the small computer I have running PFSense (home-built router, basically). I expected to have to do a lot of configuring and driver installing. Instead I plugged it in, turned on the router, and PFSense detected and installed it immediately. No weirdness, no odd behavior. Works just like any other network card would.

Cons: It's still a USB network card, so latency and whatnot isn't top notch. Still, I just needed a functional and reliable network card, and this does the job.

5 out of 5 eggsPlug 'n' Play

Pros: This works great! Plugged into my MacBook Retina and in seconds I had an internet connection with my wireless disabled. No drivers no CDs, not setup. Speeds are just fine, I probably should have spent a little extra for the 3.0 gigabit version but I really just needed it so that I could have a hard connection as I am using Synergy on my PC to control my MacBook setup on my second monitor. The wireless was a bit choppy sometimes.

Tested speeds actual speeds are about 60-140mps at least that was the transfer speed to my network drive.

I like the white since it matches the rest of the Apple stuff I already have.

I also like that this has the LED lights in it too.. How else are you supposed to know it's working?

Cons: None. Does everything I need it to.

Other Thoughts: It's not the cheapest Ethernet adapter out there, but it works and it seems to work great for most cases. If you're planning on moving big files or streaming uncompressed HD video to your Xbox and you have USB 3.0 you should spring for the gigabit version. But this is fast enough for most cases.
