Product review: Ableconn USB3E1000 SuperSpeed USB 3.0 to 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet Network Adapter

video

This is a very nice compact Ethernet adapter. It feels solidly made and has metallic aluminium finish.

It is compact in size. This network adapter is 3"L x 7/8"W x 5/8"H. It weighs 1.5 oz. The network cable is 3" long. It is powered directly from the USB port.

To see whether it performs up to its specification I tested it connecting two Linux systems using iperf performance measuring tool.
I also compared its performance with two NICs built-in into my computer.

The network adapter performed well, as well as one might hope for a Gigabit adapter.

✔ For those who are interested in the specific details of the tests I am including them below.
