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

Pros:
Easy to use once you get it set up. Works! Can be used with Backtrack. Came with backtrack and preinstalled driver disc.
Cons:
Seemed a little light, could possible be broken easily it dropped from 4 feet on a hard surface. First CD(mini cd) only had drivers for 98-Vista, going to Realtek's website and getting the driver worked. Every once in a while it stops working and needs to be unplugged and plugged back in again.
Other:
Very nice if you need an adapter for a desktop, or for an older laptop that doesn't have Wifi.
Bottomline:
I'm using it on my laptop for extended range, even though my laptop already has a wireless card, so far it has worked great.
