4 out of 5 eggsWorks Great - Description a bit misleading

Pros: Much higher gain than my lid antenna. Enables connecting to Wi-Fi links that would normally be unusable with my Dells (or other notebook).

Cons: Description misleading, it is a USB antenna - does not have any SMA connector on it (despite description). Requires loading a driver file. There is no easy way to switch back to lid antenna - other than removing driver file - hence, you have to carry the external antenna all the time. Make a copy of the driver CD, because if you misplace it - there's no easy way to get a copy of the driver file - should you need to reload it.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend it, and, in fact - i purchased a second one - just in case the primary one failed. I have used it to d/l email and video from adjacent motels and restaurants, when the cybercafe i was using had WiFi that wasn't working.

3 out of 5 eggsNot as Great, but not as bad either

Pros: The signal was easier to pick up, but not much stronger. It worked, I wanted it to work better, but for the money not bad.

Cons: I was hoping for better performance. The cords were a pain in the you know what. The cords got tangled, go wireless. I believe there are better devices now for the money.

5 out of 5 eggsA Dynamite Device!

Pros: I just purchased my second one to use with my desktop machine. The wireless card I was using had failed so I needed something to replace it. I have been using an Ideaworks WiFi on my notebook and it is super! So, I decided to go with something that I knew worked well. This is a DYNAMITE item!

Cons: Absolutely none.

Other Thoughts: Do yourself a favor and get one of these.

3 out of 5 eggsIt's just OK

Pros: I have gained a bar to maybe two.

Cons: I think there are other ways I could of gone and been wireless, so it could I could use other devices. Plus I would of added security.

5 out of 5 eggsA Great Item

Pros: I got this item at a ridiculously low price. Ito took just a few minutes for the included CD to install. I got this item because I wanted to be able to work in more distant areas. And now I can! It is much more powerful than he previous device I was using.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsIt works like a charm

Pros: I bought this unit for my Uncle because he wanted to get wifi in his second garage (shed) so he could get a quiet place to do some work on the web. He is a extremely intelligent man, I would say he is so, so with tech knowledge. He was able to use the installation disc and have it up and running in minutes. I would have thought that i would have to walk him through it, but he had it all figured out, by himself no problem. Had him do a speed test for me see how good his signal was and it increased his signal up to 5 bars. 30 download and 5 upload consistently. He told me he has never had it that fast even when he was only 5-10ft from his router, now he's in his shed about 300-500ft from its router. I also like how it gets its power from the USB.

Cons: Should have bought two when they were on sale.

Other Thoughts: with these kind of products you never know if its going to be a gimmick, or like a "As seen on TV." garbage, but this one lives up to and out performed my expectations.

1 out of 5 eggsnot what's advertised

Pros: long range ..yes

Cons: this is not quit what is says it is...
It is a wifi adapter and a long range antenna.together.
it has no sma connector like the description says.
it does work well for another wireless adapter for your computer if thats what you're looking for, but the manual specifically states that you have to disable your current wifi adapter (if you have one) so it doesn't conflict with this one.
