For the price this case is very reasonable.
Before I talk about speed I want to make sure that everyone understands the terms used, to avoid confusion for those who don't know much about technical specifications. If you understand prefixes just skip this bit.
A bit is the smallest piece that information is broken up into, its signified with a lower case "b"
A Byte is 8 bits together, they are signified with an upper case "B"
Mega means it has been multiplied by 1024 twice, signified with a capital "M"
Giga means it has been multiplied by 1024 three times, signified with a capital "G"
so 1Mpbs is 1 x 1024 x1024 = 1048576 bits per… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what you want, 27 July 2012
I am very pleased with this product. It's fantastic. It's fairly easy to set up. The display is clear and easy to read. It has more functions than you are likely to need (Speed, max speed, average speed, odometer, trip distance, trip time, clock, stopwatch, calories burned, fat burned, temperature, maintenance reminder).

The item description says, wrongly, that this device can transfer data at 1000Mbps yes the Ethernet side of this does have that speed however USB 2.0 has a maximum speed of 480Mbps so the computer cannot receive the full gigabit speed. Its like having a mini roundabout at the end of a 3 lane motorway. This will be faster than standard 10/100Mbps Ethernet but don't expect full 1000Mbps. I would recommend getting an express card for a laptop should you want to have gigabit Ethernet. Unlike USB, express cards have 2500Mbps between them and the computer so they will not slow down the connection. Or if you have a desktop computer I recommend buying a PCI card. they have a minimum of 1064Mbps… Read more
