4 out of 5 eggsGood budget case

Pros: inexpensive with a sturdy build/design. Nice black painted finish.

Cons: The front top of the case has a slight slant but it doesn't really matter too much. I wish the power button was more developed because it feels a little cheap.

1 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for...

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Can't be used to download from Steam / Torrents (with WPA authentication). - There appears to be a fundamental problem with this adapter that kills the PC -> WAN connection when many connections are opened simultaneously. PC remains connected to LAN, but drops internet access. No other devices on my network have this problem.

I've tried 3 different driver versions, rotating wifi channels, updating router firmware, and much more with no improvement. The only 'fix' is to drop back to TKIP authentication, which kills max download speeds.

Other Thoughts: Avoid this product unless you just need something for web browsing.

5 out of 5 eggsRosewill FTW on cheap WIFI

Pros: This makes my second review of this product. The only pro this unit has is it is exactly what you would expect it to be. And its priced very low.

Cons: I see no cons in this product. Nothing in the description is not supported by this product.

Other Thoughts: Decent range for the device and instant upgrade for a weak wifi connection on a laptop. If you like the ability to increase the range of your wireless computer and laptop this will handle both cases very well. I do not buy a lot of Rosewill products but this one has not disappointed me and it my top pick when it comes to price and function.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: This is a GOOD quality antenna, as it REALLY increased my signal, whether in my home or in my car at a fast food shop. When using this antenna, other neighbors show up on my list, that otherwise did not apear. Would buy another one if the need for a 2nd one arises. Great Newegg customer service !!

Cons: non that I found, except it does not have a red blinking light to prevent airplanes from running into it, while in my living room.

5 out of 5 eggsReliable and Simple Wireless Connectivity for Cheap!

Pros: - Looks neat (to me)
- Antenna!
- Extension cable/docking bay
- Straightforward and simple driver setup

Cons: - 300 Mbps (not necessarily a bad thing, though)

Other Thoughts: I've been looking for a nice USB wireless adapter for a long time. I've always stuck with PCIe if I could manage it because they've always been so reliable for me, but that's become more difficult lately. When you're building computers for people on a budget, you don't always have a huge motherboard selection if you want good components, and typically it leaves me with a PCIe x16 and PCIe x1, but the x1 gets covered usually because of dual slot graphics cards... it was a problem for a long time, but not since I found this.

This was super easy to set up - just downloaded the drivers (or from the CD, then upgrade), installed (on Win7), and done. No dancing around trying to find a driver that actually works well. Right after installation it saw my routers in my house and I was able to connect to either with a strong connection, and I've never once dropped the connection. It's been a great adapter so far! I can't speak much for long term reliability because I haven't used them for more than a month or so, but at such a low price, I don't mind replacing one that dies after several months, if it even does. :)

The only drawback I can really see is the "low" transfer speed compared to modern routers and such. However, unless you're sporting Google Fiber or something similar, you're not going to be losing any internet speed, really, and any intensive network traffic will usually be over a wire (from my experience) :P

All in all, a great adapter! I recommend it to anyone looking for a good, cheap USB wireless adapter.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks better than expected

Pros: Increased speed and connection quality. The Wifi adapter I had before worked ok. But because of the distance I am going (200ft) and through walls the speed was slow at times. This works fast all the time. Win8.1 detected and installed drivers by itself (no downloading or CD needed) and was up and running in seconds.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Bought it on sale and can't be more pleased. Will be picking up another soon to improve another computer's connection.

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: Great price and easy installation.

Cons: It worked haphazardly for the first two days and hasn't worked since. It detects a strong signal, very good speed, and that's about it. Save your money.

1 out of 5 eggsWorked for a bit and then died

Pros: Cheap, plug and play, and when it works it works fine.

Cons: Its cheap, it would only work intermittently, short life span.

Other Thoughts: I bought it because it was cheap and I really got what I paid for. This is the second Rosewill brand network adapter I have owned and neither have lasted more than three months. Seriously just save your money and buy something better. It is also totally possible that I just received two defective units.

2 out of 5 eggsIt works, but not all the time.

Pros: When it works it does a great job, having the antenna helps immensely with signal strength

Cons: It disconnects randomly, twice while writing this review. And takes about 30 seconds to reconnect.

If you're unlucky and it just dies, happens about once every day, the only way to fix it is to restart your computer

Other Thoughts: If you want a reliable product, never buy Rosewill. Especially for networking, stick to the Belkin, Netgear, or ASUS.
