    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    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.

    Cons:

    No real cons other than having to compile a driver for my Linux distro, the source code is included on the CD.

    OtherThoughts:

    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.

    Bottomline:

    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.
