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

Pros:
- Very powerfull, i'm not sure if it is 1000 mW but the difference with the built-in Wi-Fi of my laptop is amazing. - The main chip is RTL8178L as you can see in attached image, so is perfect for injection and monitor on BT 3/4. - Nice dark look with blue LED and dragon logo. - No overheating problems.
Cons:
- Documentation is fully in Chinese. - There is a place for a Faraday cage at the RF part of the PCB but it isn't mounted. - No Linux or Mac drivers on DVD, only for Windows. However, you can download these drivers in Realtek's website.
Other:
- DVD contains drivers for Windows, BT 4 final, an iso image of BT 3 for usb and also a VMware machine for Windows with Backtrack 3 loaded.
Bottomline:
Recommended purchase.
