  • Unexpectedly good product

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    -Device is small and has a status led

    -Aerial is big enough

    -No problem with driver (Win7 recognized it instantly and downloaded driver for itself in seconds - you can find the driver easily on Realtek's website)

    -Suprisingly strong reception (tried on a Dell notebook and this device has a much stronger reception on the same place than Dell's integrated one)

    Cons:

    -The USB plug is a bit baggy in some computers

    -Longer period of usage can make it pretty warm (luckily no effect on reception)

    OtherThoughts:

    I would recommend the maker of this product to add some vent-holes to the case (to avoid any issue in extreme conditions).

    Bottomline:

    It's a bargain, no question about it. Good signal, well-known chipset (with proper support) and good build-quality. The issues with the USB plug can be easily resolved at home manually. The verdict is: awesome product on awesome price with little cons.
