Pros:

This must be my sixth or seventh rosewill usb wifi adapter, because I bought them for relatives and different computers. This one is cheap, is N speed, and support Mac computers.

Cons:

The Windows XP driver is a big ~15mb exe file that you are required to install that come with the Rosewill app, but it allows you to use the Windows Zero built in. However, the Mac's app is three times smaller and has different layout and is really nice. There is no Linux driver for it which is disappointing.

The durability is not so good. Like some of the other cheap Rosewill models the USB connector get bent so easily. You should use it with an extender cable at all times. I accidentally pressed this adapter down a bit while plugged in, not so much pressure since the soldering seem to be all intact, but the computers can't recognize it anymore.

Other Thoughts:

I still am going to buy their adapters, but i'll have to be careful with the durability.
