Pros: It's cheap & it works. This unit is a plug & play for Linux OS 12.04 & up. May work on older versions too. No drivers to download..wooh hoo! Good reception also.
Other Thoughts: After two weeks of trying to get my Netgear N-600 wifi adapter to function on a Linux OS I gave up & scanned the forums for alternative wifi adapters. Although this one was really not mentioned, I checked out Rosewill web site along with others to see if they were compatible. At this price even if it didn't work I wouldn't be hurting because it would work on a MS suzuckz OS. I'm about 138 meters through the trees to the access point & I get good reception.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Large HD. 4GB Ram, good for everyday use.
Cons: Unit came with wireless keyboard & mouse but there was no Mini USB plug & play so Keyboard & mouse were useless. I had to purchase a keyboard & mouse combo. Comes with Windows 8 (hate it), Upgraded it to Windows 8.1 still no better than Windows 8. Split the HD to run Linux in a duel boot mode giving Linux most of the HD space only keeping Windows to run a Photo manipulation program.READ FULL REVIEW
