Inexpensive, easy to install
Exact alignment touchy
Consider the antenna oriented vertically. The signal strength gain is only in the horizontal direction from a vertical antenna. The antenna works by robbing sensitivity above and below the horizontal plane to increase the power in the horizontal plane. The specs say that the beam width at half power is only 15 degrees in the vertical plane.
You can think of the antenna being only good in a plane at right angles to its length. If you are using it in a house with a computer on a different floor than the router, the antenna needs to be tilted so that it is at right angles to a line between the two devices. Small changes in antenna orientation can make large differences in signal strength. Try to get an application which can measure signal strength and plot it on a time graph (LinSSID for Linux or Amped Wireless WiFi Analytics Tool for Windows), and experiment with different antenna positions until you get the best result. Alternately, use an Internet speed test site to check the download speed with a particular antenna orientation, then change the orientation and test again.

Nice looking device
No adapters to connect to my Router
Still searching for an adapter or cable to connect this to my Linksys router.

Experience: 1 Months


Good Quality Construction
None really, except as a previously stated, the magnets on the antenna base may cause interference. Still testing.
Picked up these for a desktop build to get the antennas up off the floor and onto a desk.

Experience: 3 Days


works good
found the magnets interfered with signal
good product! strait forward! but for me i found not much gain from my 5 db antennas until i removed the magnets in the mounts! then they worked great!!

Experience: 10 Days


Simple, flexible (with the cable), good signal
This is a great antenna if you want to revive a wireless card who has lost its original. Nothing else to say. Does the job!

I can actually use the internet in my office! Super affordable.
I went out and purchased one of these after seeing the stellar reviews on NCIX. I was beyond fed up with my tad bit faster than dial-up speeds via my wireless in my office. I just moved to this new place, and the internet is included... however I do not have access to the router. I plugged it in, moved it around the room in different directions and used to figure out the best location. I went from 0-1 bar and almost no functional internet... to 3-4 bars and speeds over 25x faster. VERY happy with the purchase!
Only blemish was that I got charged for two, and only purchased one... but they caught that right away and emailed me to inform me of their mistake. I'll just have to go into the store and get it reversed when I return my wireless card (which I never even had to try out due to the antenna working so well).
If you're having problems w/ low signal, this will be 15 dollars well spent!

Affordable way to increase range.
I attached this to my girlfriends Wireless PCI card and the change was immediate. Much better reception from upstairs router and much faster web surfing. Great for bad connections.

Experience: 1 Days


Need a router/ap with ability to attach the antenna.
Best purchase I've ever made on this site. Signal in hard to cove areas went from -80 to -30. Now there's no more loss of connection when I want Wi-Fi access!

Experience: 2 Years


Great antennas I had 3x of the default antennas that came with my card and then i bought 3 of these and i was going from 3-5 mb down to 40-48 mb down on wireless N.
Kind of delicate, I dropped one and the antenna cover snapped off although I just super glues it back on

Easy setup, well built, sturdy base, strong magnetic base
Solid antenna. I attached the antenna to my router and used the bases for my PC network card to improve the locations of the antenna.
Was getting low signal quality at the second floor of my house - router on the first floor. The signal quality was around 60%. After installing these antenna on the router, the signal quality jumped to 75% - 80% on the second floor.
Only issue I have is that I wished the magnets would be removable. I'm worried that the magnets will cause interference to the other electronics around my desk.

The magnets in the base are extremely strong and I've managed to mount them on the underside of my desk on a support beam. This actually improved the signal and cleared up my workspace. So this is definitely a Pro now.

Awesome product regardless.
