1/ 5

Pros: None.

Cons: It never worked with either a Chromebook or a Wii U. I got an email asking for specifics about my problem. I responded but never heard back. I'm really disappointed with the quality of the product and the customer service.

Works with Galaxy Tab S 10.5

Pros: Easy to use and set-up. Nothing needed to download or install if using on a tablet.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Great little item. Low profile and set-up was near instantaneous. The package came with a mini-CD which has installation drivers on it. Totally not needed for my use as I am using the adapter for my tablet in my bedroom where the Wifi is horrible.

I'm using this on my Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and I paired it in with a Simulcharge USB adapter and was on the internet immediately. No worries, no problems. Simple as that.

Works great with Wii U

Pros: As some of you may know, the Wii U doesn't support Ethernet. As for the new Smash Bros. release, this USB to Ethernet has helped stop almost all of the frame drops I've been getting online.

Cons: It doesn't stop all of the lag, but for what it is, I have to give it 5 eggs.

Other Thoughts: I recommend getting it if your device, especially the Wii U, doesn't support Ethernet.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: Before I purchased this item, I contacted the seller, Plugable Technologies via email to inquire if this adapter would work with my tablet and they responded that same day!

Works with Nexus 7, 2012

Pros: The "Plugable" device allowed me to connect my Google Nexus 7 2012 version to a wired LAN. I used an OTG cable, the Plugable device, and a cat 5 cable.

Cons: I want to mention that an included driver disk comes on a mini-CD. That's mini, not full size CD. However, you can also download drivers from their web site.

Other Thoughts: I hooked my cat 5 cable directly to my router and it worked fine. This did not require any drivers to be loaded.
