Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
-Compact design. -High speed USB 2 -Detachable antenna. -Can be mounted on high USB ports and thus improving reception.
Cons:
A HUGE con is the driver issue. I am running Windows 7 and the device will not self-install. It doesn't say on the device which of the 5 different drivers is the correct one. I had to search online for 40 minutes to discover that although the CD has Realtek drivers, you actually need to download Ralink drivers for RT5370. Also as previously mentioned you have to sign-up to download this driver.
Other:
Is it so hard to include the CORRECT driver with the product you are selling?
Bottomline:
Besides the agony of searching for the driver: everything works well, i get all reception bars 13 meters from the router and full 150Mb\s
