    Does the job

    • Written by from Hitchin

    Good product that does what it says. However, I have to knock a star because it does significantly reduce battery life. Prior to using this, I could use my macbook air all day with about 40% power left, when using this, my batter was flat just before the end of the day, so it uses like 70% more power. I am having to use this sparingly to conserve power.

    Wicked Fast, but needs to be on power!

    • Written by from Airdrie

    I thought I had a faulty one, as on my MacBook Air it didn't work - it randomly came up as a thunderbolt device, but no ethernet, or not at all.

    I then tried it on power, and "pop" - it just worked, as expected... and it is very, very fast. copying files onto the Air with it's SSD I was getting a nice solid 45Mb a second.

    This is now part of my carry around kit for the laptop - excellent when you need a little more "oomph" than you can get with the Wireless.

    Works great! (But don't buy it for MBA!!!)

    Why? This is nothing wrong with the product at all and it works great! The problem is... if you are using Macbook Air and you need to connect to extra monitor with thunderbolt you are out of luck. Either have this or the thunderbolt to DVI/HDMI adpter. I never thought of this until I bought it went home and had the "Ahhhh moment". Get the USB version instead. If you never care about extra monitor ever at all or you don't need to do presentation on bigger screens then sure go ahead.

    Initially I couldn't get this to work as even though it was showing as connected in the system report and I could see the port on my network switch was up OSX was not seeing the adapter as a network interface.

    In the end I fixed it by downloading Thunderbolt update 1.21 from the apple site (software update claimed no updates available)

    I would have posted the link but it seems the review system won't actually let me.
