I bought it just because I needed a wireless card for a desktop PC, which is in a separate room from my router (and a long LAN cable joining both did not allow me to even close the door). At the moment I was not sure how well would it work, but then after 2 years using it, I am still surprised by the quality of the signal (maximum network power level in windows) and by the fact it was extremely easy to install, and has given me no problems at all since the moment I bought it. I am writing the review now actually, because I am about to buy a couple more, one for an old PC in my parent's place and a second one as "spare" in case the one I have now fails before I buy a new computer :)
Since the wireless on my laptop was on the fritz, I ordered this dongle. It worked well for about 16 months. Not as long of a useful life as I had hoped, but for shipping included price of 5.35, it's acceptable.
This adapter works out of the box on a raspberry pi 2B. Make sure that the power supply you will using can supply more than 2 ampere's. The adapter has a good range and support speeds up to 150mbit - the speed will vary depending on the position of the wireless router and this adapter.
Very good value, the driver support is not the best and it can be tricky to setup, but it is very flexible and can be used in different situations. I have seen that other dongles with the same driver have a more stable behaviour, but this still does the job.
Pros: Trabaja bien en windows 7 y 8. Cons: Problemas con los dirvers en Linux. Siento que se recalienta mucho. El equipo trabaja muy bien para su tamaño y precio, solo para algunos proyectos en linux me ha dado problemas. No logre hacerlo funcionar con una Raspberry Pi 2.
