It is very small. Works surprisingly well it gets a 100% power rating while going through three plaster walls to reach my router. I can also see the my next door neighbor and the guy across the street at over 50%. Needless to say the power and the sensitivity surprised me.
No real cons other than having to compile a driver for my Linux distro, the source code is included on the CD.
I imagine the necessary code will make it to the Linux kernel soon, most Realtek wireless stuff gets in there eventually. I used it to free up a PCI slot in my home entertainment box and it worked well for that, with the bonus of getting rid of the bulky antenna.
This thing isn't for war driving or distant point to point connections, but if you are looking for easy around the house connectivity from a wifi dongle that doesn't take up much room this thing is hard to beat.
