What is your opinion of this product?
Nothing but issues and drop outs on Macbook Pro 2016 with Sierra and Macbook Pro 2018 with Mojave. Do not recommend. Even tried it on my Thinkpad running Linux, since it's class compliant. It does not work well there either. Had the Ultralite Mk3 and loved it, but would not recommend this one.
