    Hi, I need an ethernet adapter for our work retina MBP so I can access my development environment. I see that his one from Monoprice is recommended but can anyone recommend one available in the UK? I don't particularly want to shell out for the Apple one.

    Looking on eBay, this one looks very similar:

    Does anyone have any experience with something like this with Mountain Lion? I'm concerned about drivers and OS compatibility.

    Thanks.

    And get your work to pay for it.

    In all honestly - a USB ethernet adapter is around £12-15. Apple's thunderbolt one is an extra £10.

    I know which I'd pick!

    Compatible with OS X???
    It does not say this so I'm not sure if this works.

    (Says driver CD included, driver for what-PC-Mac-Linux!)

    I don't know about this one, but the Apple one available before the TB version was available works fine. Having said that, if the network is fast I would consider the TB version to be a better option
