4 out of 5 eggsWorks with Raspberry Pi

Pros: Works with Raspberry Pi distros out of the box, no need to download drivers or firmware. Also works on the Raspberry Pi B+ without the need for a powered hub.

Cons: My only complaint about this adapter is is adapter housing. The housing is flat and wide. However, the width is the problem. Many computers (Raspberry Pi included) have USB ports close together. The adapter is too wide, it blocks the neighboring port. If it were designed to be long and narrow it wouldn't block neighboring ports. Technically I can use the included USB extension (which is nice), so this is a minor gripe.

Other Thoughts: I specifically bought this adapter because it was listed as working with the Raspberry Pi and because it's N300. Turns out N300 is the downlink speed, the uplink is N150. I was bummed when I realized this, but rereading the newegg description they do mention this, so the fault is my own for not reading closely. That said, I still would have purchased this adapter - I guess I just wish it were N300 both ways.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great price. Antenna is of good quality with strong signal.

Cons: The unit would overheated when used without the cradle and stop working. Recommend using cradle at all times.

Plastic housing around USB connector was a little loose.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

Pros: very fast
strong signal
dual band
can install just the driver if you want
good range

Cons: (not a big deal at all) USB could be countersunk slightly more

Other Thoughts: I had a Belkin F5D7050 USB wireless G stick and switched to this and my connectivity went from around low/medium and 5-11mbps constantly cutting in and out to a solid connection of very good with a constant 52 mbps. Connects to the router that is in the exact opposite end of my house.

2 out of 5 eggsSpend More Money

Pros: Fast enough, convenient, great signal

Cons: Didn't last long, says that it supports windows 8 but no drivers are to be found exclusively for windows 8. It is costing me more than half the refund price to return my defective product

Other Thoughts: Wish I would have known it was a Realtek product from the beginning

2 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for

Pros: Long USB cable, works fairly well (when working)

Cons: When I first purchased this adapter it ran well with 100% signal strength and link quality to my router. It would have the odd timeout/disconnect once a week, but that was minor and usually self corrected. That lasted for the first 6 months of usage.

After 6 months, the timeouts and disconnects continued to get worse to the point where I will have multiple disconnects and timeouts over the span of an hour and now requires me to unplug the adapter from my PC (which sometimes still does not correct the issue). Also, my signal strength dropped from 100% down to between 40-70%, even though the router and adapter have never moved.

For the price, it is a decent adapter if you simply need to get connected to the internet. I do not recommend buying this adapter if you plan to heavily use the internet for video streaming, gaming, etc.
