Your port HAS TO BE USB 3.0 for the adapter to work!

I have a windows 8 pc and the driver for the adapter installed automatically...no downloads or cd installation needed.

I'm an IT and the LED lights come in handy when troubleshooting network connection issues.

**UPDATE** I originally bought one of these and had some pretty terrible bottleneck issues. After reading my original review the people from Anker Direct took it upon themselves to contact me and to try to resolve my issue with the device. They promptly sent me a replacement (even before I asked for it) and provided a pre-paid return label for the one I bought. That is some impressive customer service right there. I'm also happy to inform that the replacement adapter works great.

[Design: I like it.]
The design is very minimalistic with 1 feet length, which I like. There are three LED lights, red LED indicates it is connected to USB 3.0 (if you connected it to a USB 2.0 port, then you won't see this red light), green for data transmit, and blue to show it's connected/recognized. It would have been better if the description was marked net to the LED, but it is written in the manual. (I know, who reads the manual these days? I had to read it just to make sure I'm not passing wrong information.)
Cable being 1 ft, it is perfect for laptops, although you can let it hang on the desktop's USB port too.

[Performance: Awesome - Much better than intel's gigabit on my intel DH67CF motherboard.]
My desktop has the Anker USB 3.0 to gigabit adapter plugged in a USB 3.0 port, and acting as a host. The client computer is Thinkpad x230t (IvyBridge) with intel's gigabit ethernet.
When copying huge movie files from the host, it starts transfering at over 100 MB/s (about 95% gigabit utilization) for a while until my laptop's memory fills up, then it slows down to about 75 MB/s (about 50% of gigabit utilization). This is pretty darn fast.
I tried this test using my desktop's integrated intel gigabit port (motherboard is intel DH67CF board, SandyBridge), and I only got about 45MB/s. I couldn't believe the Anker is almost twice as fast! I checked both adapter's settings, and jumboframe was not even enabled, everything was at their default settings.

I also tried moving the device on to a USB 2.0 port now on my desktop. It still shows I'm connected at gigabit speed, but transfer speed is now capped at about 29 MB/s (25% utilization), which is the limit of USB 2.0.

This is a great, robust device. It looks similar to the Linksys 300M (which is Not USB 3 compliant), but its construction is superior, thicker shell and heavier cord. I'm using this under CentOS/Linux. It took some time to track down the ASIX AX88179 Linux Driver to make it work. Google "ASIX AX88179 Linux Driver" if you looking for it from the ASIX support site.

Update: Since I wrote this review I have an update on Linux support. Early in 2013 the ASIX drivers were submitted for inclusion in the Linux Kernel. This means that if you use a recent kernel (something like 3.10 or higher), Linux directly supports the AX88179 chipset.

UPDATE:

I had given a 5-star review based on the fact that it worked fine on the Macbook Air. However, after about 2 weeks of working fine, it just completely died today. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers, but that did not do anything. I am returning for a refund, as an exchange is not available.

Don't bother with the little CD (where do you stick THAT into the Macbook Air, LOL!). Do a search for "ASIX AX88179 OS X driver", download, install, reboot, connect, profit! BTW, you don't need to bother with creating a Network Interface manually (as the documentation that comes with the driver says). Take a look and see if one was automatically created for you (it was for me); if not, you can always create it manually per the documentation. SO nice that I don't have the Thunderbolt port occupied for Ethernet purposes, so I can connect a display or a projector that port. Only complaint is that it doesn't come in an Apple White color ;) Speed seems fine to me, although I have not done any scientific tests (no need, it is good enough!)

I downloaded the latest drivers from [...] instead of using the mini CD that comes with the adapter. With the latest drivers the ethernet adapter immediately worked flawlessly. Initial transfer speed measurements show around 110M/sec.

I will update the review once I have a few weeks of experience to judge the stability of the adapter.

First Update after one week and tens of gigabytes of transferred data: I had some issues with the Adapter connecting as USB 2.0 when plugged into a hub before the hub was plugged into the laptop. After connecting the adapter to a different port of the USB 3.0 hub (switching it from the "second" to the "first" logical hub) the problems disappeared and since then the adapter runs stable.

Once or twice I had the problem that the adapter basically disconnected (all LEDs dark, no further network traffic going through, but still listed on the USB bus) after plugging in and out several devices at the hub, but I am not sure if that issue is from the hub or the adapter. In any case, a simple disconnect/reconnect fixed it.

Second update after five weeks: Overall the adapter is still performing well. There is the occasional situation where it is not properly recognized or where the network connection stops working, but a plug/unplug cycle always fixes that.
The adapter seems to have one major drawback: I can't get it to properly work in IPv6 mode. Neither local nor global (manual or automatic) IPv6 addresses work. Other USB adapters and the WiFi card work properly, so this is not an issue with my Macbook. I hope that future drivers will fix this problem.
