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.
