1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Would have been nice if it had worked

Cons: DOA. Defective cable caused the USB device to "drop" constantly.

Other Thoughts: Between shipping and return cost, cost more to return than to throw in trash. Shipping should be covered by NewEgg/Vantec when sending DOA device !!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as advertised

Pros: Runs at USB 3.0 speeds, able to max out my suboptimal comcast internet. Easy installation, simply plugged it into my laptop and windows 7 automatically detected the drivers.

Cons: Was hoping it would be less bulky since I have limited desk space.

Other Thoughts: Wasn't working at USB 3.0 speeds initially - HWinfo said that it was operating at USB version 2.10. However, the problem turned out to be that my USB ports were using USB version 2.0 still - updating the chipset drivers on my HP laptop fixed it!

5 out of 5 eggsThe Best

Pros: It does what it says. Connecting to USB 2.0 still makes it ~300Mbps transfer rate = ~30mbps while transfering files between computers, instead of using 10/100 ethernet port, which makes it ~10mbps

Cons: Have to install driver from CD before actually using it. What if you don't have CD? Have to find other means to get the driver.

Other Thoughts: All in all, it's really good.

3 out of 5 eggsfailed

Pros: Newegg's customer service and RMA procedures are the best I've ever experienced

Cons: Blue screened my Win 7 64 bit OS several times...never could get it to boot properly

5 out of 5 eggsFast

Pros: Fast, operates at full gigabit speeds, setup relatively easy.

Cons: From Win 8.1 U1 you will need to run the setup from CB-U300GNA\Windows\Win8\Win8_setup.exe. I tried running it from CB-U300GNA\Windows\setup.exe and got a message that the OS was not supported. Also, make sure that you install the driver before connecting the adapter.

Other Thoughts: The manual may need to be updated for Win 8.1 U 1. Thought about dinging it a star for this, but really it operates well enough to deserve 5.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: My ultrabook does not have an Ethernet port and this item fits the bill. Works just as advertised. Very satisfied.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Out of the box this item will not work with Windows 8 64 bit. Be sure to get the newest drivers off the manufacturer site and you will be good to go.

4 out of 5 eggsNeeds a user manual tweak

Pros: Windows 8.1. The device came with a driver CD. When I tried to install the driver, I got a message that my system is not supported. Grrr. I was about to complain when I decided to just plug the thing in. It works.

4 eggs instead of 5 for misleading documentation

Cons: Documentation a little inaccurate. I can live with this.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: My employee's laptop Ethernet drive wouldn't transfer over 10mbps. Tried everything to fix and decided to stop wasting my time and bought this. Phenomenal adapter and it's plug'n'play so anyone can use this.
Speeds are faster than usb 2.0 speed for data transfer

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: My business transfers large amounts of data between computers and the server and the wireless adapter in the laptop created system crashes because it would slow down the entire system.
