    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Works perfectly with my raspberry Pi, no issues connecting to the network. My mac recognizes it as well and could use it to connect to the network
    Cons:
    Rather slow transfer speed, could be due to the Pi and not the dongle Plastic casing broke almost immediately Very difficult to...

    Excellent value for money

    posted by 1foo2bar3 on 03/06/2014 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Small size and with price tag smaller than for a pack of cigarettes. You can't really ask much more. Very fitting companion to an ARM development board like ODROID-3U to create a small footprint device, suitable for semi-stealth operations.
    Cons:
    The description says "Chipset: RTL8192U" but actually the chipset is Ralink (bought by MediaTek in 2011) RT2000 based...

    Cons:
    None.

    Great item for older laptops

    posted by LarsNorw on 12/09/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    I bought this because I had an older laptop that did not support the n standard nor did it connect with WPA2 only WEP. This device connected instantly. As a bonus, you can also use it as an wireless router. Just plug into a computer with internet connectio...
    Cons:
    You need to install the latest driver for Ralink 2870 chip-set. Search for it on the internet. I don't think the CD has the lat...

    Great overall

    posted by keeshiinoyami on 05/01/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Great quality from such a small device. Small, doesn't get in the way or break easily due to size. Signal rivals quality from larger devices that cost up to 10 times as much.
    Cons:
    Easy to lose. Can fall into the worst places to try and get it back from.
