Very good antenna! – 2.4GHz 100W 18dBi Directional High Gain 18-Unit Antenna for Wifi/Wireless Network (RP-SMA) Reviews

Pros:
Highly directional antenna with very good reception. Works great with all my cards. The short cable increases the performance. Is smaller than you can imagine. Simple to install. It's very light (aluminum). This very well designed in compliance with the sizes.
Cons:
No cons.
Other:
It is important to note that this antenna works best linked to another similar antenna. The transmission and reception are directional so there must be line of sight between points. (recommended). Not the best antenna to be connected to a router with omni directional antenna.
Bottomline:
Very good antenna, recommended for long distance communications. If you do not know much about antennas is important to read a bit before buying this antenna. This antenna does not work for all types of links. Just plug and play, no calibration or adjustments (only point to the target).
