4 out of 5 eggsWorks very well for my situation... about to buy a second one for another system!

Pros: I got one of these as a "free add-on" for the network card I purchased for my home theater PC. The HTPC is located inside of a cabinet, along with all my other audio/video hardware. The amount of noise and interference in that cavity is fairly significant, as a result.

The primary purpose of a remote antenna is to... shocking as it may seem, from what I've seen from other people's reviews on here.. TO MOVE THE ANTENNA TO A BETTER LOCATION.

In my case, the antennae in this device are just slightly superior to those provided with the wireless-N NIC card I'm using. If the computer is ideally placed, there is virtually no benefit from the remote antenna set. Some cards may have slightly better antennae, some may be slightly worse.

But while I was virtually unable to get a signal with the HTPC in its installed location, I'm able to get VERY VERY CLEAR RECEPTION by having the antenna package mounted remotely.

THAT IS WHAT THIS DEVICE IS FOR.

Cons: This is a very small "con." I would really have preferred that the cable, as provided, was several feet longer. Instead, I had to buy an extender cable set to permit the antenna package to be mounted in my bookshelf, behind some books, far away from any active electronic devices or metallic (ie, "electromagnetically-shielding") materials.

For remote antennae, the cable as provided should be a MINIMUM of six feet in length, and ten feet wouldn't be unreasonable.

Other Thoughts: This device is designed for a variety of different mounting applications. The base can simply be set on a surface, or it can be mounted by screws, but it's important to note that it has a strong, magnetic base. In my case, I s-crewed a couple of steel screws into place and the magnet in the base is strong enough to hold the antenna package in place using only the attraction to these screws. It's a pretty strong magnet... probably a "rare earth" magnet. This means that you have to be VERY careful to keep it away from other devices which are magnetic in nature. Put it next to your old reel-to-reel or cassette tapes, and they'll be damaged. Put it next to a CRT computer monitor, you'll adversely affect the monitor. Put it near a hard drive and you'll harm your hard drive. It MUST be kept far away from your computer. But if you wanted to just keep it right next to your computer, you clearly don't understand why a device like this exists, anyway.

2 out of 5 eggspure swag

Pros: Ended up using it for 802.11g. it works ok if you put a tall soda can (arizona) in the center of the antennas.

Cons: I Got 2 of these for a bridge. after I installed them, the APs kept crashing. The OEM antennas worked way better. After looking into the issue; as I understand it the design is wrong for the standing wave ratio of 802.11n and the distortion is frying my APs.

Other Thoughts: this is IDENTICAL to a rosewill antenna for half the price right down to the details of the molding and the packaging. the only difference is the branding decal and the "netgear" manual.

For about $5 and some soldering you could make your own, and it would work.
