Summary With products like these, make sure you know what you are buying. Don't buy this product thinking you'll get gigabit speed. It is just a great product for where wireless isn't an option or a reliable connection where wireless is not reliable enough.
Pros Works in conjunction with a USB OTG cable to allow me to use my Samsung Note Pro Tablet on Ethernet.
Cons Does not have a very long cable
Summary Works great. Plugged this into my USB OTG cable and my Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 saw the network right away. Was able to download at 5MB/s (megabytes per second not megabits), so it is within range of my normal download speeds.
Summary I purchased this to have a second network interface where/when I'll need it. On my i7 and i5, speed gets close to 80Mbps, while on my Atom, it's only 25Mbps. On the built-in Atom's network adaptor I get almost 90Mbps. So, this explains that this USB adapter uses CPU. I also realised that it becomes hot even if a network cable isn't plugged into it (only USB).
Summary I'm happy that this has worked flawlessly with standard open source Linux drivers ("asix", it seems). I'm only using it for connecting to the internet, though (5 mbps), so if there were any issues with more traffic, I wouldn't know about it.
It's getting quite warm, especially in summer, about the same as a 3G usb stick I'm using on a laptop, so I guess the power usage will be about the same, too, which is 2-2.5 W for the latter (but then I wouldn't know of a use case where this were a problem, and I can't compare to other usb ethernet adapters as I've never owned any).
