5 out of 5 eggsWorks As Advertised

Pros: RJ45 socket on my HP Revolve broke. Bought this as a work around since I prefer to have the computer plugged in when at home. Plug and play with Win 8.1, no need to install drivers.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Would buy again.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks perfectly

Pros: I lost the USB to ethernet that came with my Zenbook. I tried two less expensive models, one for about 3 dollars, the other for 10. The $2.00 one gave me a speed of less than a megabyte on my local network--the $10.00 worked with Linux but not FreeBSD-10.x (though it works with 11-CURRENT).

This one worked out of the box on both Linux (Fedora, Debian, Arch) and FreeBSD-10.x I should have bought this one first. It seemed a bit pricey for what it was, but as another reviewer found, often the less expensive ones don't work well.

Cons: $15.00 still seems a little high for such a product, but as mentioned, everything less expensive didn't work very well. It's also a little large--not huge, but a bit bigger than the original adapter that came with my Zenbook. These are minor complaints though.

5 out of 5 eggsWorked out of box with Pi

Pros: I was looking to add another NIC on my pie for SSH hopping in my lab. Plugged in prior to initial power up of Pi and it worked right off the bat.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I'm sure if I needed it for something with a higher bandwidth requirement I'd be upset, but for simple ssh connections, it's perfect.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks perfectly

Pros: Easy to use

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have a Dell Inspiron 15 laptop running Windows 8.1 that does not have an ethernet port which is why I purchased this product. It came with a CD for installation of drivers but my laptop doesn't have an internal CD drive either. So I simply plugged this device into the USB on my laptop and attached the ethernet cable and tried it out. Worked perfectly without issue.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat buy - cheaper brands are unreliable

Pros: Works quickly; plug and play with both mac and PC; never had an issue

Cons: $20 still seems pricey, $15 feels right, but the cheaper ones didn't work, so maybe $20 is the right price point.

Other Thoughts: Other companies sell USB ethernet doggles for $8-$10. I bought a few and none worked. Don't waste your money and time with cheap adapters that don't function.

5 out of 5 eggsUSB-Good as expected.

Pros: A sturdy built piece of gear. I needed to get a usb to Ethernet tool and this fills that role well. Has all the features you expect out of built-in Ethernet slots. What more is there to say really?

Cons: Feels weird having it plugged in on laptops without a table.

Other Thoughts: Handy!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Plug-and-play on my older Macbook (built-in ethernet was knocked out earlier on during a storm). Works great and seems to perform just dandy.

Cons: None.
