Reliable 9/10/2010 2:01:56 PM

Pros: Purchased in 5/09 for use on a Win Vista 32 bit Home Premium desktop for use in a room 30" away from the home's wireless internet router, a D-Link outputting a 802.11g signal.

During its daily use from that date until roughly 5/10, the family member who used the computer never complained about "slow or dropped" connections during "typical internet browsing" of news, Facebook, etc. (Including streaming Youtube video.)

Cons: None known

Overall Review: The unit was simply connected to the computer, with the driver disk being installed to allow it to function. No security settings, etc. were changed at the adapter's level.

On the router/networking side, all of the computers were part of the same workgroup and connection to the network (wired and wireless) required username/password via WPA.

The computer always had 4 or 5 bars of signal strength showing.

Avoid at all costs 8/30/2010 2:09:27 PM

Pros: Low price.

Cons: Unit cannot lock onto router only 60' away (with WPA enabled) through 2 uninsulated walls, yet a Macbook Pro in the same room pulls 5 bars. Disabled security & it worked for one day. Software installation also does not match what is in the user's manual - it never gives you the option to let Windows handle the wireless connection. Unit will be sent back & a different brand will be ordered to replace it.

Overall Review: Avoid this underpowered piece of junk at all costs - it isn't worth your time.

Great product 1/18/2010 12:32:35 AM

Pros: Great speed. Could not get 300Mbps with D-Link Xtreme N router, but still get 270Mbps consistently from 60' away through the wall. Works with Windows XP and Vista. Does not get hot. Low power consumption.

Cons: Wish it could give me full 300Mbps, but 270Mbps is fine, no big deal.

Bad Customer Service 1/4/2010 8:54:05 PM

Pros: Worked for my vista laptop.

Cons: Did not work for my xp desktop (even though it is advertised). I called their company and the representative told me there was nothing I could do about it.

Overall Review: After reading some of these comments it is apparent that this company is notorious for terrible customer service.

Was about to buy more wireless adapters when I remembered this company has terrible service. Needless to say, they lost ALL of my business.
