5.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy 2m USB Type-C cable, 20 Feb. 2016
I ordered this 2m USB Type-C cable for use with a Nexus 5X and I am pleased to report it works perfectly with a firm fit and no wiggle, this nylon braided cable is very sturdy and while stiffer than most USB cables this seems to at least help when retrieving it from my usual mess of tangled cables :)

Disclosure: This cable was received at a discounted price in exchange for my honest, unbiased review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compact USB network card with 2 port hub, perfect for laptops without wired ethernet onboard, 21 Jan. 2016
A compact USB network card with 2 port USB hub that does the job perfect, the cable is approximately ~23cm cable from device to the USB plug so ideal to add wired network connectivity to laptops without losing what in some cases is the sole USB port :)

It arrived in a suitable sized box which contained the adaptor itself and an unlabelled mini-CD which I presume contains the drives; however as this adaptor was to be connected to a laptop without CD-ROM drive this was not used.

The Network adaptor features the "ASIX AX88772A Fast Ethernet" chipset which in addition to being supported by most modern Linux distributions is also used in some of the official Apple USB network adaptors so the chipset appears to be supported from Mac OS X 10.5.2 onwards, performance wise I observed transfer rates of 11.21 MB/s which at just over 90 Mbit is pretty close to the capacity of 100 Mbit Fast Ethernet.

The USB hub functionality is provided by a "Genesys Logic" chipset that provides the two external USB 2.0 ports and does not require any additional drivers, I tried copying a large file from a flash drive while plugged into to one of the two USB ports gave transfer rates of 17.13 MB/s compared to 17.31 MB/s when connected directly to the laptop.. but as the results were similar in both cases I expect this to be the limitation of the flash disk.

Overall this adaptors is widely supported and performs both functions well.. so despite my laptop already having an onboard network port, this has become a permanent fixture in my laptop bag just in case ;)

Disclosure: I received a discount when purchasing in return for providing an honest review; however as this item may be available from multiple sellers I have not considered price in my evaluation.

5.0 out of 5 stars outdated by progress, but still a good starting point, 4 Mar. 2003
This was one of my first linux security books and i have found it to be my most refered to by a long way, however it is now pretty dated as it is over three years old (when 2.2 kernel and ipchains were new). If you are considering purchasing this book i would sugest you look at the updated second editon, however you cant realy go wrong with this book as it will give you and excelent grounding in the priciples of securing you linux workstation/server and with a little web research you should be able to apply these ideas to the lateest versions of the software.
