Hi everyone! Today I want to share with you another great new product I just got in from Orico! It’s the USB3.0 to RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter, and this thing is handy if you want to use a fast ethernet connection on your desktop or laptop. It can be purchased for around $20 on Amazon or Newegg. Today I am going to tell you a little bit about this product, my experience with it, and also give you a chance to win one for free! So let’s get started!
This device is perfect for several situations. This will be useful if you have a newer laptop with no ethernet port, then you can simply plug in this adapter to your USB port and you will then have an ethernet port. Also if you have an older computer that has a broken ethernet port and it is not worth the money to repair, then this is an inexpensive solution. And if you have a slightly outdated computer and fast internet, you can certainly upgrade the connection speed using this in combination with a USB3.0 port. There are other situations in which this may be the right device for you as well, but these are popular ones.
First off this product arrived quickly, and the packaging was nice. The device was well protected during shipping, and was easy to use. I did not have to download a driver for this to work in my case, but depending on the computer you are using you may have to. A driver is a file that can be downloaded easily and quickly from your computer in about 1 minute or less, and in it there is a tiny software program that gives the computer directions on how to use the hardware or external device the right way so that they can communicate properly.
In my situation I simply unboxed the device, plugged it up to my USB port in my laptop, and connected my ethernet cord to get it working. I definitely noticed a speed increase using this in combination with the USB3.0 port over the standard ethernet port. In my case it was still not performing at full speed because my internet provider cannot support that! But if they could, I have no doubt from using other Orico products, that it would perform as well or better than similar devices.
If you only have a regular USB port, then I will show you how to upgrade it for around $25 in one of my future posts coming later today! The USB3.0 ports are usually blue on the inside, but if you have a regular USB port then this device will still work for you, but will not have the speed of a USB3.0 device. USB3.0 devices perform about 10X faster than regular USB devices on average. I hope that this review helped you to determine that this is the right product for you!
