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

Pros:
My laptop picked up 3 Networks with 1 bar each. After I plugged in Wifly (with an extended antenna) I picked up 15 networks. 10 had full bars. very happy. Windows 7 automaticly downloaded drivers. Backtrax Linux Bootable dvd included for hacking WEP networks. Took a bit to figure out as instructions are in chinese but works great
Cons:
Only tested on Windows 7 (but also ran it in xp and vista modes on 7) Setup file does not work for drivers. All instructions provided including PDF files are in chinese. My shippment did not come with an antenna, good thing I bought an extender one. There is no online support of any kind so you need to spend time figuring it out or getting someone to translate
Other:
has 2 USB plug ins. Why? No idea but I run it with both plugged in. Instructions! Damn just get it translated.
Bottomline:
Best bang for your buck it works sooooo good.
