Excellent little usb wifi card – Ultra-Mini Nano USB 2.0 802.11n 150Mbps Wifi/WLAN Wireless Network Adapter Reviews

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

Pros:
-Really small, I have an old laptop where the internal wifi card has stopped working, but with an external card this small I can just leave it in even when I take it in my bag. -Looks pretty cool with it's magenta colored light that flashes when it is transmitting, but I suspect that could also be somewhat annoying depending on the circumstances.
Cons:
-My cd drive couldn't read from the driver cd that came in the package, but by googling "ep-n8508 driver" I found some downloadable drivers instead. -Nothing else that I can think of.
Other:
-I will likely buy another one to use with a raspberry pie that needs wifi. It wasn't exactly a smooth install, but after finding this post I got it working: http://wordpress.animatez.co.uk/computers/raspberry-pi/linux/get-wifi-working
Bottomline:
-Just buy it if you want a small external wifi card.
