The Kanex USB 3 to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter adds a Gigabit Ethernet port to your MacBook Air, MacBook Pro with Retina display or any other USB 3 enabled computer. Ideal for hotel rooms or conference rooms with a wired internet connection, this small and compact adapter connects to a USB 3 port on your computer and provides an RJ-45 port for connection to the internet or local area network for sharing and accessing files at data transfer rates of up to 1 Gbps.
Works, but can't acheive gigabit speeds.
This review is from: Kanex USB3GBIT USB 3.0 Gigabit Adapter
Cons: We have about three of these USB 3 Gigabit adapter and are unable to acheive gigabit speeds on Mac OS 10.8.5. At most I have recorded ~600Mbit speeds. Perhaps this is a driver problem on the Kanex side, but the Apple Thunderbolt Gigabit adapter is easily able to acheive ~900Mbit consistiantly whcih is close enough with overhead.
Other Thoughts: Possibly dropped connections bud haven't tested this thoroughly. I will test other adapters to find one that works as advertized.
