Buy beware

Strengths:

It works great when you are on the same floor as the WiFi router.

Weaknesses:

1. Weak range if you are far away. 2. Download speeds no faster than Wireless N that's built into my 10 year old laptop 3. It gets hot for some reason.

Additional Comments:

Don't expect a miracle out of this device.

Great purchase

Strengths:

I purchased this with hopes it would boost my laptop that's around 9 years old. Wasn't disappointed! My laptop has a network card with 802.11b at 50mpbs near the router and up to 11mbps away from the router. The network card was very easy to install and, after testing, fires out a 802.11ac signal at 240mbps far away from the router. Going to test to see what it is near the router.

Weaknesses:

Doesn't automatically connect to WiFi, have to enable my connection every time I turn on the laptop.

Additional Comments:

Very neat little adapter. Recommend it for older laptops.

I would not buy this again

Strengths:

Small. Does not need any drivers installed under Windows.

Weaknesses:

Expensive. Work poorly.

Additional Comments:

I was in the store looking for a good quality USB wifi adapter. I did not need the smallest one, but I bought this one even though the assistant there told me I should just get a cheaper one. I wanted a good quality one, thinking this one must be better if it costs more. But it never really worked very well, giving very poor throughput and connectivity would sometimes go down. I have bought some Wireless-N 300 Mbps USB wifi adapters on ebay for like $4, and hey, they work great! They are somewhat bigger than this one, but work, and really cheap. So I would say, only buy this one if you absolutely must have THE smallest one possible (maybe for a laptop you carry around, but replacing the wifi card in a laptop is cheap and easy). If not, then you are paying extra for nothing.

Great little adapter. Would recommend.

Strengths:

Bought 10 of these for a small office environment in a concrete building where the office space was spread over three rooms. I was worried that because of the building, that the signal wouldn't be very strong. Granted, I have enterprise-grade WiFi in the building, but these adapters were fantastic in every machine. Easy to install, no muss, no fuss.

Weaknesses:

None

Additional Comments:

Would recommend to anyone if they needed a small WiFi adapter without an external antenna.

The weakest signal.

Additional Comments:

I regret buying it and I couldnt get it back to store because I lost the receipt. The worst wifi adapter.
