Summary: I have a server with two ethernet ports that has one connected to the Internet and the other connected directly to a NAS. The owner of the company I work for asked me to set up a couple of bitcoin blades that used ethernet to communicate so I grabbed this little ethernet adaptor. Seems to do the trick and hasn't caused any instability on my personal Debian testing server.
Summary: I am in the process of going for my Cisco certifications. I used 12 of these with a USB HUB to connect my six physical Cisco Layer 3 switches and routers to my virtual network devices in GNS3 to simulate a CCIE network. This worked great!!! Update July 9th: I would also like to add that Blue House is a great vendor!! One of my 12 NICs had an issue with it.

Summary: I bought a Chromebook for my kid. I learned afterwards that it did not have an ethernet outlet. I'm not fond of my kid constantly on wifi, because who knows what the health effects of daily wifi use are. So I bought this, and it worked great. I just plugged it in the USB jack, stuck the ethernet cable to it, and voila.
Summary: I bought a couple of these to work with a pFsense router. Not many of you will know what that is, but it is essential an obscure but highly secure router/firewall software package, based upon FreeBSD. It is likely this has nothing to do with your life, so take this with a grain of salt.
Excerpt: I had to get this adapter to hook up my xbox to the internet at college. This adapter worked perfectly. I thought that the connection would be laggy, since it was $, but I have no problems with it at all. Does exactly what I wanted it to.
Excerpt: Purchased this Ethernet adaptor to assign a licensing key to it instead of a specific computer so it can be transferred later. So far so good....Service and delivery response time was excellent!
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection
Summary: A power surge fried my ethernet board. Before I spent a lot of money, I thought I'd give this a try to see if I could inexpensively get mu Internet back. Running an older Gateway computer with Windows XP. I installed the driver with the disc provided, plugged the USB in, and connected my ethernet cable. Took all of 5 minutes. Perfect, and I'm back up and running with no problems.
Summary: Was looking for an adapter that I needed quickly. Didn't notice until after the fact that the last version of Mac OSX was supported was OSX 10.6 which was released 4 year old ago. Trendnet support was useless. They told me to return it. Found the review here about downloading the driver from the chip manufacturer, Prolific, so I downloaded md_PL2303_MacOSX-10_6up_v1_5_1.zip and it worked for me.
