Summary: This adapter works perfectly with my XP machines and my WIndows 7 - 64bit as well it works on all Windows version I've tried so far. I'm pretty sure I had it working in some Linux distro too. It works on all speeds and duplexes.
Summary: I picked this up to replace the "Genuine Apple" 10/100 adapter one of my puppies chewed to pieces. As promised on the packaging, there are drivers for OS X .4 (Tiger), .5 (Leopard), .6 (Snow Leopard), and .7 (Lion). I'm writing this on a Late 2010 MacBook Air running Snow Leopard 10.6.8.

Summary: If I could have given this product a zero star or even better a negative star review I would have. I have a MacBook Air which is running Fusion. I made a virtual machine and installed Window 7 Professional 64 bit. I installed Office, Photoshop, and a few utilities.
Summary: I bought two of these, one for my Macbook Air, one for my wife's Acer Aspire S3, hoping to speed up backups at home and to use on a business trip in a hotel that didn't have wifi. On the S3 (running Windows 7) it was a disaster: The driver blue-screened constantly, and it was anything but speedy.
Summary: I also tried an adapter from a different company, which did not work out of the box on Ubuntu. I'm using this adapter on a laptop without an Ethernet port, which now works as a server.
Pros: Reasonably priced on Newegg, looks good, works out of the box with Ubuntu 11.10. I read many reviews online, and it seems like most Gigabit USB Ethernet adapters require some effort to work on Linux. This one doesn't so, if you're on Ubuntu or some other Linux, I think it's worth buying for this ...
Cons: Bulkier than other adapters. Personally, I don't really care if it gets the job done, but I couldn't leave this box blank.
