Product worked as advertised. Allow me to connect USB 3.0 external drives to Thunderbolt port on MacBook Pro. Greatly increased speed upload and download data.

Have this product attached to my mac everyday as an auxiliary USB port. It's easy to carry and intuitive to use. I hope it has two or more USB port.

Great product and very useful -- perhaps the cord is a bit short if you're using it from an iMac; perfect travel length for MacBook Pro.

For a MacBook Pro Retina. Its nice and small, doesn't take up much space. It seems to be a high transfer rate, certainly heads above using WiFi. I have the big bucks Apple 6 antennae WiFi tower, its about 15 feet away from my computer and half the time the speed crawls. Not my ISP either because when I bought this adapter - everything downloads quickly - not nearly as many spinning buffering wheels anymore. The only thing I did not like is it took quite a bit to get here - I think it was about 1-1/2 weeks and I am in the same state as Kanex.

I used this product to gain file transfer speed on an older I-mac that only has USB2 connections. The product was fantastic as it increased speed to USB3 levels and this was really noticeable. There were not negative features that I identified with this product. I would thoroughly recommend this product to anyone considering buying it. Mark

Exactly what I was looking for. Mainly use it when downloading a lot of data and need the little extra boost from having ethernet hooked up. Only needed to use it for USB port once or twice, but it's nice to have incase I do need it.
