    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    -> Works with Ubuntu Linux out-of-the-box
    -> Performance is good, seems to be more stable when paired with distant AP's
    -> is absolutely amazing when paired with sku.25292 (picks up 3 AP's by itself, and over 20 with the antenna).

    Cons:

    -> only includes a small antenna. 800mW power only helps transmission, but not reception.
    -> funky 2-headed USB cable (I guess it draws more power than one port can supply?)
    -> feels kinda light and plasticky, cheap

    OtherThoughts:

    -> gets noticeably warm when in use

    Bottomline:

    two of these units, and two of sku.25292, and you can communicate over an enormous distance
