With notebooks and other computing devices growing smaller and thinner every year, space-consuming components such as the familiar RJ45 ethernet jack are disappearing from the mobile landscape. While ever increasing WiFi speeds, range, and reliability are all but removing the need for a physical ethernet port, there are occasions where having an ethernet jack could save the day. Fortunately companies like Vantec know this, and have developed and released USB 3.0-based solutions to provide gigabit Ethernet to any notebook, PC or Mac that has a USB port.
In this review I am going to be taking an indepth look at Vantec’s USB 3.0 to Dual Gigabit Ethernet adapter, model number CB-U320GNA. Much like the single port version of this adapter that I reviewed previously, this dual gigabit Ethernet port version is small enough to fit easily into one’s pocket, backpack, or laptop bag without notice, yet sleek enough to leave on the desktop. Find out the hard specs on this cool little adapter on page two!
