5 out of 5 eggsawesome deal

Pros: Works greats, allows you to position your wireless adapter wherever the signal is strongest for best performance. Didn't notice any loss of speed as opposed to connecting directly to the usb port. If anything speeds are better from the simple fact that you can move it closer to the source. Sometimes a couple of feet make all the difference.

Cons: A bit expensive for what it is. (see below)

Other Thoughts: To be honest this was included free with an adapter that alone cost less then the cradle does by itself so it was a total bargain for me. Another worth while point to make is if you have an adapter thats on the large side or had big antenna's that prevent you from moving your system as far back on your desk/floor as you'd like this would help with that. The base is stable but if you have an adapter that wide and is top heavy due to the antenna's be careful. Bumping would make it tip over. Not a problem with the internal antenna versions.

1 out of 5 eggsThis thing sucks

Cons: Doesn't connect to existing networks.

Other Thoughts: Its terrible. Waste of time and money.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Customer,

We are sorry that you are not satisfied.

This device is a cradle to hold a USB adapter.

Unfortunately this device doesn't have capabilities to connect to a network since that is not it's function.

You would treat this device more like an extension cord.

We apologize for any inconvenience and hope that you can reach out to us directly if you have any other issues or concerns.


Best Regards!

5 out of 5 eggsGet it for better reception

Pros: - This cradle lets the user set up their adapter in a more open area of the room for better reception
- After switching to the cradle from the rear case USB port, my signal strength improved about 20%

Cons: - It's an extra cable
- Underside grip material is foam; rubber would be preferable as it would give better friction. This is a slight inconvenience when you're lacking flat surfaces at the desired setup location

Other Thoughts: - This is most useful if your case is in an enclosed cabinet or corner of a room.
- The white rectangular peg seen in the picture is to hold the cap for a corresponding TP Link USB adapter, which is handy for keeping all parts secure and in one place.

3 out of 5 eggsBlah

Pros: Was a Free item with other TP devices.

Cons: While Free, would never work with one of the TP items I ordered. The other item would work, but makes stand too top heavy and tips over easily.

Other Thoughts: If you need a free USB extender this would work in a pinch.

2 out of 5 eggsTP-Link UC100 USB Cradle

Pros: Free. Included witha TP-Link Archer 4TU Wifi adapter.

Cons: Wouldn't using a USB 2.0 extension defeat that advantage of a USB 3.0 WiFi adapter?

Other Thoughts: There is nothing really wrong with this "cradle"...it's just an extension for a USB Wi-Fi adapter. My low score is that it seems to make no sense to include it as a bonus with a USB 3.0 adapter when the extension is USB 2.0. (I'm assuming that using it would downgrade the 3.0 adapter to 2.0, but maybe I'm wrong about that.)

5 out of 5 eggsComes In Handy on a Cluttered Desktop

Pros: This thing is NICE, It has a cord which is almost 5 feet long which makes it really HANDY if Desktop space is Cluttered. It also has a little Stud to put your thumb Drive Cap on. Newegg Threw this in for free when I bought a Dual Band Wireless TP-LINK USB wireless Network Adapter.

Cons: NONE, I do wish it was USB 3 instead of USB 2 but really for everything that I'll use this for, it being USB 2 is Fine....
