This review is from: StarTech.com USB 3.0 to Dual Port Gigabit Ethernet Adapter NIC w/ USB Port
Pros: 2 ports with a usb3 passthrough
Cons: Can only get 200megabits per second max. Iperf and other bandwidth tests show this is not full speed gigabit. I know its not my usb3 port because I can copy data from a thumb drive at 120megabytes per second, which is gigabit speeds.
From this adapter directly to other laptops (macbook pro and toshiba) iperf shows a max of 200mbps while the macbook pro to the toshiba was getting full speed gigabit, around 900mbps.
Also the drivers are slow to load when I plug in the adapter, but that could be windows 8.
Other Thoughts: If you need full speed gigabit, stay away from this adapter.
