  • This adapter works flawlessly and at a much cheaper price than the adapter that is officially licensed by Nintendo.
  • Positives:* great price, even cheaper than USB 2.0 GigE adapters
  • works great, fantastic price 60mbs through the router, who can beat that

Reviews around work (4.53 of 5)

  • Well built, works as described, easy to install, a little pricey, you'll need USB 3.0 to see any improvements over 2.0, stick to wired Ethernet if you can, my media player experienced more "buffering" with this adapter
  • Plugable said there was a chance it could be a defective unit that only worked on USB 2.0 but not the newer USB 3.0 on the Dell.
  • This works extremely well and comes in handy especially with some of the new laptops.
  • Junk, stopped working after a 2 months!
  • This works well, is easy to use, and is reasonably priced.

  • Great quality and same technology as the certified Nintendo adapter but much cheaper

Reviews around bite (1.00 of 5)

  • works very good; but living in a condo, but in the afternoon the wireless traffic in the area really picks up & of course slows down a bit; Hooked it up about a week ago in the afternoon, & I did not see much difference in speed; by the next Morning, it really starting picking up the speed & after a couple of days it really got super quick for my Chromebook and it is constantly quick regardless of the time of the day; Just plug & play on the Chromebook; & hey guys, for less than $20 bucks this is a steal; I picked up the USB 3.0 Model since it is backward compatible since I will use on my next unit; Go Ahead;
  • It's a bit tricky to install if you are also missing a CD drive, but not terrible.

Reviews around drive (1.00 of 5)

  • I was copying to a usb 3.0 SATA hard-drive on the same laptop.
  • Once that was figured out, it was very quick to install and has given me back Ethernet on a Mac with a broken E-port
  • 3.0 pci adapter a year ago to take advantage of a usb 3.0 external hard drive I bought
  • The performance is better than I expected and shows no issue feeding a Hyper-V switch that has 4 computers running 24x7
  • Of course at USB 2.0 it transfers at 160 mbps, but once I switch it to the 3.0 USB port it goes up to 400+ mbps under normal operating circumstances, this means single hard drive in both network PCs and all apps running.
