5 out of 5 eggsFor when you need a network connection fast

Pros: -Drivers straight from the disc get the job done
-Connectivity in minutes
-Great for when your primary adapter dies and you need a hot-swappable replacement
-No PCI slot required

Cons: -None

Other Thoughts: Picked this up for a motherboard that had it's ethernet port die, but had no room for a PCI card. Worked like a charm.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: none.

Cons: I read the reviews and noticed that several of these units that were received by customers were simply bad units. That is what I got, a bad unit. I tried multiple driver updates from the included CD, the manufacturer's website, etc..., but it only worked for about 5 minutes before failing.

Other Thoughts: I was planning on using this Gigabit USB NIC to help my PC run as a faster media server for my PS3, but the PC is a slimline and had only one available PCI slot which was being used by a TV Tuner card. My solution is that I hooked up a slingbox on my network, so I no longer need the tuner card (all my PC's can now view TV, and I will purchase a low profile gigabit NIC (probably from Intel).

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great and it's cheap!

Pros: No problems. Plug and play.

Cons: Would not work through my non-powered hub on my notebook.

Other Thoughts: It probably draws too much power but it worked fine when I plugged it into the other USB port.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Works great and its cheap

Cons: Hard to find the drivers on the internet

Other Thoughts: If you need the drivers for this, you need to look up Asix AX88178. This is the model number it installs as.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Easy and Cheap... Great for laptops...

Cons: Drivers on disk tend to freeze computer but when rebooted they are installed... No other driver support found on the web so if you loose the disk your done for.

Other Thoughts: If you can find a diff product thats brand name as cheap or cheaper then go for it. Otherwise this isn't a bad deal.

5 out of 5 eggsFast

Pros: Fast, easy to connect. light and Compact Can easily use on diffrent computers since it just plugs into a USB 2.0 port.

Cons: A detachable Usb cable would be nice so I could change the cable size.

Other Thoughts: Bought this for my new laptop that should have come with a gigabit NIC but only has 100 MBS.
Works just as well, I just hace to plug in a USB cable instead of a RJ45.
