Unexpectedly good product – 802.11n/b/g 150Mbps USB Wireless Adapter with Detachable Antenna Reviews

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

Pros:
-Device is small and has a status led
-Aerial is big enough
-No problem with driver (Win7 recognized it instantly and downloaded driver for itself in seconds - you can find the driver easily on Realtek's website)
-Suprisingly strong reception (tried on a Dell notebook and this device has a much stronger reception on the same place than Dell's integrated one)
Cons:
-The USB plug is a bit baggy in some computers
-Longer period of usage can make it pretty warm (luckily no effect on reception)
Other:
I would recommend the maker of this product to add some vent-holes to the case (to avoid any issue in extreme conditions).
Bottomline:
It's a bargain, no question about it. Good signal, well-known chipset (with proper support) and good build-quality. The issues with the USB plug can be easily resolved at home manually. The verdict is: awesome product on awesome price with little cons.
