I love this adapter. It makes getting online at work a breeze. It is compact, sleek, and works perfect. I would definitely recommend it. I used a different product before and it was terrible. I almost gave up on adapters until a friend of mine let me borrow his Startech. I immediately ordered mine after using his for a day.
Windows 10 Pro x64 desktopWorks great. All I had to do was plug it in to a USB 3 port, and it worked without the need to install drivers (though you should still download the latest from the web site).On my previous NIC (an older pci-e Intel), I was getting inconsistent download speeds around only 20-50 Mbps on my best day when we subscribe to 300 Mbps from our ISP. I had stutter from 1080p videos on Youtube, and my LAN speeds weren't much better.With the Startech ..
