      Comments about Kanex USB 3.0 Gigabit Adapter (White):

      Full Gigabit Speeds. Easy to install on a Mac Mini, just needed to download the driver. We use these to add an additional ethernet port to our Mac Minis so that we can connect them to our Metadata network. We don't demand too much from them as far as throughput is concerned but we have tested them in a production environment and they perform fast and reliably.

          Comments about Kanex USB 3.0 Gigabit Adapter (White):

          Does exactly what it promises to do – allows a Mac (most likely a 2012 MacBook) to connect to Gigabit Ethernet for a reasonable price. Sometimes, you just need the full speed of a wired connection for large data transfers or database work.

          Also, speed and connection reliability seem to be excellent when connected to a USB 3.0 hub. This allows a user to keep the Thunderbolt port open for an external monitor or other uses.

          Make sure to go into System Preferences and then Network to check the connection status the first time. Drivers and firmware are easily available online. You will need a Mac with USB 3.0 to take full advantage of Gigabit network bandwidth.
