    Pros:

    - Works well enough

    - Seems well made

    Cons:

    - Was a little more difficult to connect than expected

    - not sure if it's really 7dBi

    OtherThoughts:

    Overall, this 7dBi omnidirectional antenna is very good value for money. However, it doesn't seem to be any more powerful than the 5dBi it replaced. However, it was about 1/3rd the price of the old 5dBi, and is still much better than the crappy stock 2dBi antennas most wireless APs and routers are stuck with.

    The only complaint is that the RP-SMA connector is so tight I thought it might have been a different type of connector. I ended up having to use a spare wireless AP to loosen it up as I didn't want to risk damage to my main wireless ADSL modem router. As it turns out, it didn't damage my spare AP, so no harm done.

    Bottomline:

    Cheap and worthwhile upgrade for most wireless routers and APs.
