3.0 out of 5 stars Aufgepasst - kein Thunderbolt 3!
Reviewed in Germany on February 3, 2019
Auf der Suche nach einem Adapter um mein MacBook Pro 2018 mit dem LAN zu verbinden, dachte ich bei diesem Adapter fündig geworden zu sein. Gibt ja nur noch die vier Thunderbolt3 (USB-C) Anschlüsse am Rechner und WLAN ist mir für Datenübertragung zu langsam. Allerdings hat der hier angebotene Adapter den "älteren" Thunderbolt/Thunderbolt2"-Anschluss (s. Foto), passend für etwas ältere Rechner. Das war jedoch für mich absolut nicht ersichtlich, nirgendwo eine Abbildung die den Thunderboltstecker zeigt, folglich falsch bestellt. Blöderweise ist die Verpackung bereits in der Tonne, Rückgabe also ausgeschlossen, wie ärgerlich.

Nur drei Sterne gibt es, weil ich bei der Vielzahl an erhältlichen Anschlüssen 1.) für die komplette Beschreibung eines recht hochpreisigen Zubehörartikels auch eine vernünftige Darstellung des Produktes erwarte und ich 2.) die hohen Kosten dieser Adapterkabel nicht nachvollziehen kann. Der Adapter an sich macht wahrscheinlich ansonsten das was er soll und einen ordentlich verarbeitetenen Eindruck, daher gibt es bei der Beurteilung der Qualität auch volle Punktzahl.

5.0 out of 5 stars FASTER INTERNET!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on September 26, 2016
Okay, so. Who is this product for? This adapter is perfect for those who want to get the fastest internet speeds possible to their Mac, and those who want to be able to access the internet as there is no Wi-Fi/ the signal is very weak. In my case, most of the time I need this cable as one of the essential things to pack when transporting my Mac, whether that be to a lecture or for just having for when I’m in a location where the Wi-Fi signal in my room is weak.

This cable proved to be more useful than I primarily anticipated. This is because I first purchased the adapter to obtain a more secure internet speed, in comparison to running on Wi-Fi, which worked a treat and I can now have good internet speeds like they should be when I’m on the right side of the house. But this was also useful as a cheeky way to get around my XI form’s Wi-Fi, where I could then access certain websites that were otherwise blocked on the Wi-Fi, such as YouTube, Spotify, SoundCloud and so on.

The adapter provides a male thunderbolt 2 connection on one side, so any Mac’s with a thunderbolt female available will be able to use this adapter, to an Ethernet female. In order to connect to the internet, you will have to provide your own Ethernet cable so that you can plug it into the female Ethernet connection on the adapter to your internet source, whether this be a modem or internet switch or anything else that you use to plug in your Ethernet cable.

Do I think that this product was worth the purchase? Yes. Do I think it’s worth its money? No. However, it seems although it seems contradicting, I would buy the product again in a heartbeat if I lost it, but It’s not worth the money I paid which was £25. There are other options on the market that sell this adapter much cheaper, that I’m sure does the same thing. I would question whether the build quality is as good as Apple’s adapter and if the internals will provide the same quality of internet speeds, as I believe some adapters, like modems can be not as powerful and not provide the same speeds even if using the same internet and Ethernet cable.

Although there are cons or should I say con of the price. It is a solid product and something worth looking into if you want a better internet connection to your Mac if it doesn’t have an Ethernet port available.

Any questions, just ask!
