Very sensitive receiver – High Power Palm-size 802.11b/g WiFi USB Adapter with High Gain Antenna Reviews

posted by wuppo on 01/21/2011 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Amasingly sensitive receiver compared to notebook internal wifi or usb stick type wifi devices. Picks up 12 APs compared to only 3 from laptop internal wifi. Also have sku 20646 - performance is identical, while this one is cheaper.
Cons:
Build quality (external) is definitley poorer than SKU 20646. Instructions are in Chinese only, so if you need instructions - this may not be for you. Driver disk (mini CD) was nearly unreadable - got there finally after many retries.
Other:
While it doesn't look as good as SKU 20646, it is only 75% of the price and still performs just as well.
Bottomline:
Neither this or SKU 20646 appears to be genuine G-SKY product, but they work well.
