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

    Pros:
    Works brilliantly with various flavours of Windows and Ubuntu 12.04 - Ralink 2870 chipset. DX don't mention this at all, but a driver for OS X 10.5-10.7 can be downloaded from ralinktech.com
    Cons:
    OS X support is a little odd; Ralink's configuration utility needs to be started to get it to connect to an access point, but t...

    Works -- good price!

    posted by sixstringtiger on 06/08/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It works fine. The range is fine and it performs as you would expect. I used it to add wifi capabilities to a very very old Gateway laptop that I installed Puppy Linux on. No real issues getting it running (as I recall anyway).
    Cons:
    The plastic case isn't really held together by anything -- the plastic separates often. This turned out to be a good thing, how...

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

    Pros:
    Got it installed in Windows 7 without using the driver disk. Works like a charm! Used SKU 33717 - Quality USB 2.0 Extension Cable (1M) to move it away from the back of my computer and used some double sided tape to stick it to a nearby bookshelf. Works as d...
    Cons:
    It is a little thick which isn't a big problem for me. It may become a problem, especially when you want to use it alongside an...
