4 out of 5 eggsGood I guess

This review is from: Rosewill RNWD-N1501UB USB Wireless Mini Adapter N150 Wi-Fi Adapter

Pros: Good range
Decent speeds

Cons: Not really any, other than the annoying driver software. You don't actually need it.

Other Thoughts: It could be smaller, but for the price I won't complain.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's okay

This review is from: Rosewill RNWD-N1501UB USB Wireless Mini Adapter N150 Wi-Fi Adapter

Pros: It's great in a pinch, like if you take your desktop along on a trip and don't want to pack a router and just hop onto local wireless or a phone hotspot.

Cons: It doesn't have great range, and rarely did I ever see the signal exceed 2 (of 5) bars.

5 out of 5 eggsRosewill WiFi USB Adapter

This review is from: Rosewill RNWD-N1501UB USB Wireless Mini Adapter N150 Wi-Fi Adapter

Pros: I originally purchased this 6 months ago and it just stopped working on its own-no connection blue light. I tried on another computer, same issue. I e/mailed Rosewill for an RMA and I got an e/mail following day that Rosewill will cover the cost for the replacement and Rosewill will not need the original adapter. Newegg shipped out the new adapter and I received it in 1 day

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Newegg has treated me very well on replacement parts and new items that I have purchased and very fast shipping times 1-4 days max

5 out of 5 eggsWorked for me!

This review is from: Rosewill RNWD-N1501UB USB Wireless Mini Adapter N150 Wi-Fi Adapter

Pros: Compact
Inexpensive
Easy to install
Good Range

Cons: None (see other thoughts)

Other Thoughts: Plugged it in, installed the driver and was connected to my router in under 5 minutes. Very straightforward install. It even intermittently hits a neighbour's wifi that is out of range for some of my other devices.

Only possible downside is that device seems to not fully utilize potential bandwidth (I get between 60 and 73Mbps with the device about 1m from the router). However, my internet connection and any streamed content on my local network requires less than this so it does not impact me.

So, for the price, it was a winner for me.

4 out of 5 eggsRNWD-N1501UB

This review is from: Rosewill RNWD-N1501UB USB Wireless Mini Adapter N150 Wi-Fi Adapter

Pros: Kept dropping and re-connecting the connection on my Pi. Did a reinstall with the most current Raspbian image and now it works. Not sure what has changed behind the scenes but it was pretty seamless for me to connect now.

Cons: sparse documentation but if it works without tinkering then you don't really need it.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat improvement over built-in wifi

This review is from: Rosewill RNWD-N1501UB USB Wireless Mini Adapter N150 Wi-Fi Adapter

Pros: Impressed. The built-in WiFi in a little Asus EEE-PC was dropping in and out constantly two floors from my router, even with the screw-on antenna. This dongle has given me reliable wireless service and reasonable DL speeds for more than a week. Did not need any drivers/SW with Win8.1 64. Am running it through a USB3 hub.

Cons: none noted

Other Thoughts: (Only been using it about 2 weeks and have not really done a formal speed check so I gave it 4 stars rather than 5 - but it fully meets my needs.)

5 out of 5 eggsNice One !

This review is from: Rosewill RNWD-N1501UB USB Wireless Mini Adapter N150 Wi-Fi Adapter

Pros: Small size , affordable price , no fancy/complicated software to make it work, small CD-ROM inculded , installing the drivers takes seconds and is just a matter of "Driver only , yes , yes , restart". Really like it !

Cons: Errrrrm , you need a free USB slot ?

Other Thoughts: Bought it for a friend's PC , he digs it, and I do too.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for the $

This review is from: Rosewill RNWD-N1501UB USB Wireless Mini Adapter N150 Wi-Fi Adapter

Pros: Works very well on 1st floor of 2 story house.

Cons: Need extender for reliable range and signal to 2nd floor...before extender, lots of weak and dropped signals.

Other Thoughts: For 15 bucks, you can't expect $100 performance. Got an extender on sale for $19 and I'm getting excellent results now.
