USB Type A
This review is from: Insten 360222 4 x USB Type A to RJ45 Ethernet Adapter
Pros: These adapters accomplish their job. You get what you pay for though. I would only recommend these only in "light duty" or low movement area with little stress, like behind a desk or in a closet where it wont be moved or wiggled.
Cons: These adapters are very cheap and flimsy. They won't do for a job that has a lot of movement or stress. They only support the USB 2.0 standard, so you can not take advantage of the upper limits of cat5 and ethernet speeds. With these you can only get 480 Mb/s instead of the 5 Gb/s goodness that is the 3.0 standard.
Other Thoughts: A word of caution. USB 2.0 can only send a receive a single that is less that or equal to 16 ft (about 4.9 meters). If you plan to use this for long usb runs, it may not work unless you have some usb hubs or other repeating/boosting device.
