5.0 out of 5 stars Works well (even improving USB 2.0 devices), 25 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The item was delivered as promised, and works in a Windows-8.1/64 PC without issue. I have not tested the USB 3.0 aspect of the unit, nor measured the maximum throughput speed, but others have reported that it allows USB 2.0 devices to work at nearer their limiting speed (e.g. 320 Mbps throughput from a 480 Mbps maximum).

4.0 out of 5 stars No cause for complaint., 24 Jan. 2015

Satisfactory for the purpose I had (a small computer). Very little write-access required. Speed tested and found to be 11.5 MB/s write, and 33 MB/s read.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting read which may bring back lots of forgotten memories., 24 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This provided a look back at a lot of memories for me. It was and interesting and mostly accurate book, spoilt only by the author's political comments when they were stated as facts rather than being clearly marked as personal views. The years after 1999 could be updated with more notes on how technology has affected all our lives, and how we are coping with retirement! Should be compulsory reading for youngsters, though! <G>

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, 2 Oct. 2014

This review is from: The Savage Altar (Kindle Edition)
I enjoyed this book, as much for the setting in Northern Sweden, as for the story itself. Worth a read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Flash but not functional, 11 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This case looks nice, but doesn't allow for connections to the RPi. It's fussy to assemble, and I wish I had bought a more conventional case, to be frank.

A great read, even though you can't help but feel some of the TV you will have seen coming through!

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended and surprisingly good!, 26 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had little expectations of this device, as Ethernet over USB did not seem to be the best way to get high throughput. However, it worked just as expected, although I did need to update to the driver from the ASIX (the actual chip manufacturer) Web site as the Edimax CD was a year or two out of date. I chose the USB 2.0 device as it was cheaper, folk have reported problems with USB 3.0, and the socket I had was only USB 2.0 anyway.

I have a rather specialist application (weather satellite data over EUMETCast) with a /lot/ of multicast data, and this device was the only one I've found which handles the multiple join/leave requests generated by the TelliCast software correctly.

As this is the only device of the type I have, I have not compared it to similar.

5.0 out of 5 stars A quality item, 14 Jun. 2014

I have bought a few extension cables, but some are inferior to this Belkin one which has good connectors which grip well. Has been widely used both at home and on cruises without a problem.

3.0 out of 5 stars Gave up after a while, 14 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Some folk might like this, but I found it became tiresome and I have given up reading it. Perhaps if I had made more effort to read it in one go it would have been a better read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works as expected, 14 Jun. 2014

A straight-forward Ethernet cable, which is being used here in a 100 Mb/s environment, and which works just as expected, without any problems.
