Add a Gigabit Ethernet port and a USB 3.0 hub port to your Thunderbolt -equipped MacBook or Ultrabook . The TB2USB3GE Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet + USB 3.0 Adapter lets you expand your MacBook or laptop connectivity through a single, compact adapter with both Gigabit Ethernet and USB 3.0, delivering reliable performance, connection possibilities and rugged portability.

Experience fast, effective and reliable performance from your essential peripherals! Leveraging the 10Gbps bandwidth of your Thunderbolt port for this dual-purpose adapter gives you reliable 1Gbps Ethernet and 5Gbps USB 3.0 connectivity, while enabling you to use both to their full capacity.

To maximize efficiency, the Thunderbolt adapter separates traffic from each interface into its own dedicated 5Gbps PCI Express lane, effectively avoiding bottlenecks when both ports are in use. This practical adapter gives you fast, robust external connectivity, offered by revolutionary Thunderbolt technology.

Take full advantage of your current peripherals! Saving you the added expense of purchasing new devices, the adapter lets you simultaneously connect your existing devices through your Thunderbolt port. Combining Thunderbolt to Ethernet and Thunderbolt to USB 3.0 functionality into a single adapter gives you two essential interfaces that are unavailable or limited on most Thunderbolt-equipped systems, making it easy for business users and home users alike to stay connected.

Whether you're in a boardroom with a weak WiFi signal, or in a hotel with only a wired network connection, this adapter has you covered. Plus, the USB 3.0 port (with UASP support) can be used to connect a storage device, USB hub, USB printer, or sync with your tablet or smartphone.

Get work done on the go, and look great doing it! A rugged and travel-friendly design lets you tuck the adapter neatly into your laptop bag, plus the lightweight casing merges portability with durability to offer quality protection that lets you take the adapter anywhere.

The sleek and stylish adapter aesthetically matches your MacBook Pro or MacBook Air, with a silver sandblast finish and black rubberized grips. Plus, the compact adapter requires no external power, and integrates a built-in Thunderbolt cable as well as hassle-free plug-and-play installation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Macs!This is a great little adapter for a Macbook Pro user. It adds Gigabit Ethernet and a fast USB port to a Thunderbolt port, is small and portable and looks great. It’s the little things that make it better, my Daughter saw me using it and commented about the rubber strips along the side and short cord that doesn’t get in the way. We tried it on her Mac as well and it worked instantly, so I might have to keep my eye on it in case it gets borrowed :) I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great extension to my MacBook ProYou love your Mac laptop because of how slim and powerful it is, but that comes at a price which means it doesn’t have an ethernet port. If wifi is spotty or unavailable, get your laptop connected to fast and reliable wired Gigabit Ethernet using the StarTech Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet plus USB 3 adapter. It is a very solid, well-built, light and compact unit that just works. No extra power cables are needed with this plug-and-play unit. It also features dual colored LED lights to indicate activity and speed.Connection speed is fast, and the USB 3.0 port will keep your Smartphone or iPad charged, hook up an external hard drive or USB printer. The rubber grips on either side of the unit is a nice detail which means you won’t loose your grip while plugging in your devices or peripherals.The 2 year warranty means peace-of-mind and it’s no wonder why because it not only looks great, but it is built to last.I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Thunderbolt Adapter for your MACThis is an excellent companion product for any mac user with a thunderbolt port. It frees up a USB port and adds an giga ethernet port. No drivers required for mac and is immediately recognized. It is small, light and no heat so it can fit anywhere and enhance your current usage of your mac. Due to the fact that it uses a thunderbolt port, it will add a USB if one does not already exist.What is especially nice is that I have used it with another StarTech provided product DK30ADD. When used in conjunction with this product, you not only free up a USB port on your mac but you gain an additional giga ethernet port while gaining all the benefits of the DK30ADD.No power adapter is required for this product but the DK30ADD will use it's own supplied power adapter (with international plugs).So if you don't mind "daisy chaining" device together for multiple needs, I would highly recommend both products but if you just need a giga ethernet port and want to add an additional USB port to your system, then this product is well worth the purchased.Anything great product from the folks at StarTech!!!“I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.”
