5 out of 5 eggsWorks great with Surface Pro/ Windows 8.1 Pro

Pros: Picked this up for my "tech tool bag". It is a great addition to the Surface Pro. Full 1.0Gbps speeds and did not need to install any drivers. Windows picked it up right away and I plugged in a cable and was online.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: If you need Ethernet capability for the Surface Pro, this is a better route to go. The Official Microsoft adapter is not 1Gbps.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great Win 8 / Surface Pro

Pros: Plug and play, literally
Very fast

Cons: None that I've seen

Other Thoughts: Back about 6 months ago I bought a Surface Pro (Microsoft's Windows 8 Pro Tablet) which sadly doesn't have internal Ethernet. As an IT guy, I spend a lot of time supporting other people's networks and needed a way of quickly connecting for tasks like testing, router configuration and troubleshooting.

I bought this adapter the same week as my Surface, and I have been extremely pleased with it. It worked "plug and play" right out of the box, which caught me off guard as I had the typical expectation that I would need to spend some time driver hunting (I never use the 3-year-old disk that comes with any new component).

I plugged it in, Windows installed the driver (which was clearly included in the OS) and I'm getting 80-90MBytes/sec consistently on large file transfers. It "just works". It's small and convenient to carry around in a small accessory pouch along with power adapters, short network cables and the like.

I have not yet tried this on a Mac(book Pro) so I can't speak to Mac compatibility, but I will post an updated review once I've tried it.

For me, this has been a great adapter and one I'd recommend to anyone.

5 out of 5 eggsGood with correct drivers.

Pros: Works, but only with the correct driver! See "Other Thoughts"

Cons: Eh, took some work to get it to function normally.

Other Thoughts: This USB adapter (USB31000S) would constantly drop packets and not load web pages when using drivers from StarTech's website both on Windows 7 32bit and Linux Mint 15 32bit. Went to the actual chipset manufacturer to get the drivers and it worked perfectly on Windows 7 after that, haven’t had a chance to test on Linux yet. Search for AX88179 on asix.com.tw under Support > Download > Drivers and let your troubles be over.

5 out of 5 eggsTen Times Faster!

Pros: Easy installation. My backups to a NAS took hours. Now they take 30 minutes!

Cons: Does not seem to work with Linux. Had to remove this product to use Linux. However, I have not really looked for a Linux driver or spent any time to get it to work with Linux. So, I still gave it 5 stars.

1 out of 5 eggsDOES NOT WORK ON MAC OS X

Pros: provides GigE speeds

Cons: running on a new Mac Air Mid-2012 - and whenever you plug in any other USB device, the Ethernet goes down. With a system restart it comes back (with the new plugged in device).
StarTech's tech support had no clue and left me hanging. Can't use the device and will be returning for a refund.

1 out of 5 eggsWin 8 Fail!

Pros: Works on Mac and Win7

Cons: Bought this adapter to use on the USB 3.0 port on my Asus Windows 8 Laptop, the unit does not work at all, other reviewers say it picked up the driver automatically. However when I plug mine in it says the USB device has malfunctioned and does not show up in Device Manager to try and use different drivers.

Other Thoughts: At least I only wasted $30.00 on these piece of garbage.

2 out of 5 eggsNot with MacBook Pro Retina 2012

Pros: No pro's as I cannot get it to run at 1Gbit

Cons: Will only run at 100Mbit on my MacBook Pro 2012

Other Thoughts: StarTech doesn't have much support for OSX on this adapter, I tried contacting StarTech support but got no response. For Macbook pro I would look into the Kanex usb 3.0 adapter, I wish I would have to begin with.
