    Hiro H50224 reviews

    USB 3.1 Gen 1 to 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet Network Adapter is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked right out of the package I'm running Windows 8.1 and the ethernet jack has become loose and kept dropping my connection. I ordered this adapter on Sunday evening and it arrived today. I connected the adapter to the USB 3.0 port and then plugged my ethernet cable into the adapter. Windows 8.1 recognized the device and said it would take a few minutes to install. After about 2 minutes, Windows 8.1 installed the driver and the connection has been solid all afternoon. I checked in the device manager and even thought the brand name HIRO is on the packaging and the device itself, the device manager says it is an Asix AX88179 and the driver is dated 2/3/2015. I don't care who makes it--so far I'm getting a rock solid ethernet connection. I don't know how long it will last (I've read reviews of other ethernet USB 3.0 adapters and it seems like they only last a year or two) but for the price I can't complain. The adapter itself is about the size of a thick pack of gum and has both power light (amber) and activity light (green). I am directly connected through the USB 3.0 port as I've read these devices don't like USB hubs.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good for MacBooks Use with MacBook requires a driver. WIth a little prodding it will indeed provide ethernet, perhaps even gigabit connection via USB, however YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SHARE that connection via WiFi on your Mac. I got it to provide WiFi via ethernet for use in hotels that don't allow multiple devIce connections. (Which is stupid, but lots of hotels charge extra for additional devices like your iPhone and iPad.) The Apple adaptor is plug and play with no issues. Not worth the $ saving -- the cost of a single additional connection a the hotel.
