I'm using on a laptop running Ubuntu Linux (20.04). I just plugged it into my USB Port and it appeared as eth1 without any extra driver installation. Seems to be working perfectly
This thing works great! I use it with Windows and have not had that first issue since it's been in use. This thing sis all about function and convenience and it does a great job of giving me both. 4 stars. *Thank you for taking the time to read my review and if it helped you make an informed decision either way about this product please let me know by taking a quick moment of your time to vote it Helpful so I can keep track of my most helpful reviews. I hope you have a wonderful shopping experience!*
Let me start by saying I am a huge fan of StarTech and their products, both in my professional uses and personal uses. This product does what it says it does. It works, yes. However, the main appeal to a fiber optic connection is the crazy fast speeds. I'm sure it's capable of those speeds until it reaches the USB-A 3.0 connection to the PC/Mac and is hit with a bottleneck of slow transfer time. This product would be much more practical in USB-C 3.1 and would be a perfect fit for Thunderbolt 3 to SFP. Hopefully a product with high fiber rated speeds on both sides of the dongle is released by StarTech soon. I have confidence that it will be, they are an industry leader in innovation.
One can’t go wrong with this adapter. It does it’s job well and at a great speed all while providing steady and reliable connection. We used it with Windows, no hiccups whatsoever. It comes with the bonus - 2 year warranty and free LIFETIME technical support. How often do we get that? StarTech is a great company offering quality products, they’ve been around for over 30 years and I am more than confident when purchasing their products. I recommend
This is a very handy adapter. You can put in your SFP of choice and your good to go from Ethernet to USB 3.0. I found the device to work extremely well and had no issues using it with windows. I saw another review mention issues with Mac and I haven’t tried using it with a Mac but it should be compatible with Mac OS. I think the best aspect is how small and light it is. You can throw this in your laptop back and if you do any sort of networking or fiber optic work this is a great tool to have on hand. Star tech is well established and been around for quite some time. The price is average for an adapter like this. All around it is a decent product and does it’s job well. Speed was actually impressive too. I certainly recommend this for people that deal with networking often.
