    Pros:

    I also have a genuine afla 36 of 1000mW and made some tests comparing to that. I noticed that this adapter has some kind of filter. Does not show up all the acces points but only the ones that can really connect.

    Cons:

    Its not 2000mW in linux i cannot set it to 2000mW only 1000mW ( For those who dont know how enter: iw reg set BO and then enter iwconfig wlan0 txpower 1000mW in some cases the wlan0 might be wlan1 if you already have an integrated wifi in your laptop. ) I saw some blogs that wrote it realy is 2000mW but for me it does not alow to set it :( And also the antenna is not 10 DBI its only 4-5 DBI compared to a genuine alfa 5 dbi antenna it has a little bit less reception so i think 4 DBI would be the real.

    Bottomline:

    Its almost the same as the genuine alfa 36 of 1 watt. And if you have a look at the price. This adapter ROCKS :) Almost same ecept the antenna that is 4 dBi real and the alfa has 5 dBi but almost same thing. And almost free price :)
