5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding

This review is from: NETIS WF2190 AC1200 Wireless High Gain USB 3.0 Adapter with Dual 5dBi Antenna & USB Cradle Extension Compatible with Windows MAC Linux OS

Pros: Most wireless network users lack the knowledge required to comment on such devices. I have it connected to my 5ghz connection which is 20ft down the hallway in my office. My connection reports 600+ Mbps and I have verified this by streaming a 10gb movie effortlessly.

Cons: None. I am on Windows 10 Pro with native drivers. This adapter is solid!

Other Thoughts: The 5Ghz (dual) band was meant for wireless "AC" devices. When you connect any other devices that are non-AC rated, you slow down your connection. Dual band routers have a 2.4Ghz band for a reason. Our iPhone 6's <--AC connection and 3 other PC's with "AC" capabilities are the only devices that occupy my 5Ghz band.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks with Windows 10 Home 64-bit

This review is from: NETIS WF2190 AC1200 Wireless High Gain USB 3.0 Adapter with Dual 5dBi Antenna & USB Cradle Extension Compatible with Windows MAC Linux OS

Pros: I plugged it in to the back of my desktop and Windows had the driver innstalled and finding networks before I could log in to my PC! Cord is long enough to reach from the lower part of my desk to the top of the hutch, roughly 4' in length, with room to move it around if needed. The config utility is a bit clunky, requiring you to enter the network key twice. Windows' WiFi manager is quite good, and I'm using it rather than the Netis utility.

I live in an 80+-year-old house with very thick walls. The AP is diagonally across the house, so the signal has to pass through two 8" thick, plaster & lath walls. I still get 70% signal strength and 187 Mbps, which is far better than the Edimax PCI card that just died on me.

Cons: Uhhhh..... not a PCI-E-based card? Really, I can't find one, other than the clunky utility that is provided by Netis.

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad for the price

This review is from: NETIS WF2190 AC1200 Wireless High Gain USB 3.0 Adapter with Dual 5dBi Antenna & USB Cradle Extension Compatible with Windows MAC Linux OS

Pros: Fast n and ac connectivity, portable, USB cradle allows placement away from interference.

Cons: Repeated drops due to USB identification failure using Netis driver with Windows 8.1. Solid performance with the Realtek 8812AU driver, just had to research a little and download the driver.

1 out of 5 eggsNot Worth It

This review is from: NETIS WF2190 AC1200 Wireless High Gain USB 3.0 Adapter with Dual 5dBi Antenna & USB Cradle Extension Compatible with Windows MAC Linux OS

Pros: Worked decently when functioning properly.

Cons: Constantly required manual unplugging and re-plugging in when it wasn't finding any connections. Does not work anymore after only two months of moderate usage (internet browsing, downloading games/music, online gaming). Speeds were decent at best.

Other Thoughts: Was really hoping for something good with this product but currently I am just annoyed with how it turned out seeing as how I have to buy another adapted now, definitely not this one again however.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked well for under a year

This review is from: NETIS WF2190 AC1200 Wireless High Gain USB 3.0 Adapter with Dual 5dBi Antenna & USB Cradle Extension Compatible with Windows MAC Linux OS

Pros: Fast
Comes with a Cradle
External Antennas
Dual Band

Cons: Intermittent / spotty connectivity after a few months
Had to take it out and plug it back sometimes
Stopped working after a little under a year

Other Thoughts: I guess the old adage "you get what you pay for" applies here. It worked great at first, then it would stop all of a sudden for no reason and I'd have to take the thing out and plug it back in to get it working again, and today, a little less than a year after I got it, it failed completely.

Thankfully, the extension / cradle it came with still works, so I plugged in my old Rosewill wireless N (single band) adapter into the cradle and it works fine. Mind you, that single-antenna Rosewill wireless N adapter is around 2 years old now, and cost me $10 when it was on sale. It was in use full time for well over a year and it's still going.

I recommend getting something else besides this adapter. A nice TP-Link if you want an "off-brand", or maybe a Rosewill one if it has good reviews. The TP-Link stuff I got for my relatives at the same time I bought this adapter are still good to go.

1 out of 5 eggsWARNING: DO NOT BUY

This review is from: NETIS WF2190 AC1200 Wireless High Gain USB 3.0 Adapter with Dual 5dBi Antenna & USB Cradle Extension Compatible with Windows MAC Linux OS

Pros: It is a network adapter.

Cons: Can not install driver with out installing software.
Occasionally disconnects from the internet and says it can not find any access points until I reset it.
I can not connect to other computers using RDP with this adapter, the connects gets dropped every 15 seconds.

Other Thoughts: I would have returned it but didnt notice any of the bad things until it was too late. This is a complete waste of money because I now have to throw it in the trash and buy another one.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Stuff!

This review is from: NETIS WF2190 AC1200 Wireless High Gain USB 3.0 Adapter with Dual 5dBi Antenna & USB Cradle Extension Compatible with Windows MAC Linux OS

Pros: I had bought this adapter to give my desktop a way to receive 5ghz, since it is a faster, stronger, and not riddled with interference issues. This thing does the job quite well. My router is a TP-Link Archer C7v2, which is a pretty good router. Although other adapters would only give me 3 bars max... Sometimes 4 on a perfect day.

Then came Netis! I get a constant 5 bars with this (and 4 on a bad day), through a ceiling, a few walls, and about 30 or more feet away from the router. It comes with a nifty cradle that I can use instead of plugging it right into the back of my Desktop, allowing me to put it wherever for a better signal. The best part is that this adapter only gets slightly warm at most, but never hot, even when working with a full load. So that means it's an adapter that's in this for the long haul.

It's 2.4ghz is also quite as good with a great link between the router and the adapter. However, 5ghz is superior for gaming and streaming, so I'll just stick to that.

Cons: Ralink Utility is necessary. The adapter can indeed run without it, but Netis might give you some issues between your computer and itself. You can mostly blame Windows need to "optimize" everything it touches. Either way, once the adapter is officially connected (as in for more than 30 seconds), then the connection should remain very consistent/strong.

Other Thoughts: Between the cost and performance, there's really no reason to doubt this wonderful adapter. I'm so glad I decided to take a chance and buy it. If it arrives dead, try again. It'll be worth it... Unless you wanna shove out 60 dollars for the same kinda thing elsewhere. :T
