I have been nicely surprised with this little device. Despite not having a metal shell for the USB port I haven't had any trouble with it staying seated and securely connected to my computer.
The range is quite good and the RaLink software is very informative and the AP mode could have uses on other computers that are physically connected to a modem.
I read somewhere that this had an overheating problem and to deal with it they removed the top section and put attatched a small heatsink. Just in case I used the Iphone tools to remove the top section, and I haven't had an overheating problem.
It's a big antenna that comes with it. So it stands out if you attach it to a Netbook.
It's quite a good buy at the price and is very useful with a USB extension for hotels and travel.
