Does not support 802.11n!

Pros: Cheap. Small.

Cons: Slow. Does not seem to support 802.11n.

Other Thoughts: I have an ASUS router with both G and N, but this wifi adapter can not see the 5ghz channel (that is broadcasting). Even if I explicitly join using the SSID it still can't find it. I'm not sure how they plaster "N" all over the packaging when it clearly is NOT an N adapter.

Meh

Pros: When is works its alright
perfectly sufficent for the average web user.
Not gamers, or people who do heavy downloading.

Cons: Slow for data transfer, cant handle super heavy use at all.
It likes to drop connection when you demand too much out of it.

Other Thoughts: I've had this for over 2 years, i still use it today,

Work Like a Charm

Pros: I keep buying these. So far I use one on Windows 7, Raspberry Pi, and OpenELEC/XBMC. Small and cheap.

Cons: Maybe not the fastest thing.

Reliable but slow

Pros: I got this for my daughter's hand-me-down old school laptop, with internal wireless G. It set up easily, and connected reliably from day one, it's tiny, and has a cute flickering light. She had been complaining her computer was slow, and in the process of a home remodel I disconnected the ethernet from my desktop and popped in the Patriot. Hooked right up.

Cons: Yes, it hooked right up - allegedly at 30mbps. Certainly not "up to" 150mbs, but still way faster than my cable modem's 10-20 mbps (tested on ethernet) right? Wrong. Real world hook up to the internet (with latest drivers) is 1-3 mbps. Really noticeably, doggy, annoyingly slow.

Other Thoughts: I should listen to my kid - I just though she wanted shiny and new, but when I hooked up the antique ethernet, she was happy. I've ordered a 300mbps wireless usb to try, and I guess I'll dig up the old 3-antenna Airlink monstrosity for my desktop. Mama don't allow them ethernet cables round here. Time will tell.

Raspberry Pi Compatible!

Pros: I plugged it in, and it worked after I configured it for my home network. It is also VERY small and out if the way. I have not used it with anything else, but I was using the standard Raspberry Linux distro "wheezy", which is Debian based. This adapter is on the Raspberry's "verified peripherals" list.

If a wireless product works with Linux, you can expect to get it to work with Windows.

Cons: This is minor and easily solvable, but reception problems could result from the position of the internal antenna. A USB extension cord, available from NewEgg for $3 shipped, will most likely fix that.

junk

Pros: when it works its good for web browsing

when your computer stops recognizing it just unplug it an put it back an it works

Cons: Drops conection, seems to not work well with windows 7, windows 8, ubuntu, or windows xp

transfer speeds are low, claims to be a lot faster than it really is. dont transfer large files over a network with it (you know the point of wireless n) it will drop.

Horrid

Pros: None.

Cons: Alright, just received this device today plugged in, install drivers awesome. Go to detect a network nothing. Thought okay maybe its the program. Turn on windows zero config. Okay..... still nothing. Alright starting to get madmake multiple profiles trying to connect to the wifi I have in the house that other devices are also connected to. Still no luck. Uninstall and reinstalled drivers twicestill nothing. Don't have any other computers that I can use it on. And I can't find any drivers at all that might beupdated.. Very displeased.

No difference, no improvement

Pros: It finds networks ok, it works fine, it's small

Cons: Doesn't bring any improvement in pick-up range over an internal wifi adapter on an HP tx2500 laptop (from 2009). So... fail in my book.

Other Thoughts: Buy this if you want 4 year old wifi technology to ADD to a non-wifi machine.

If you are looking to improve your pick-up range for a device, look at another adapter.
