    DualRole Gigabit Ethernet and USB 3.1 Gen 1 Three Port Hub is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Seemed OK at first but its going back This hub was fairly cheap (on sale for less than $$ when I bought it) but it just isn't reliable. The USB part of it seems fine, but the main reason I bought it over a regular USB3 hub is the Gigabit Ethernet port. I'm running a MacBook Pro Retina with Mac OS X 10.9, and downloaded the latest Ethernet driver from Kanex's web site.Usually, once the Ethernet is working it stays working. But as soon as I unplug the hub to use my MacBook portably, it almost never seems to work after plugging it back in. I usually have to reboot my computer. Network control panel shows it as a red dot (network cable unplugged). This completely defeats the purpose of using a device like this as a low-cost docking station. So I've already printed the RMA and its going back.Its possible that this device works fine on a PC, or maybe on older versions of Mac OS X. But if you're running Mavericks, I'd avoid it.
