Dual band
Micro-usb cable (can use to charge phone!)
short cable
Signal is very strong, haven't had any issues with it on 2.4 or 5ghz. The cable is a bit short so you will have to keep it close to your computer, or just get a longer USB to micro-USB cable.

Experience: 60 Days
 Verified Owner
easy to install, seems to work
no gigabit port as product description suggested.
This is just a plain Dual Band USB adapter. It deosn't has an Ethernet port.

Installation is easy and it seems to work.

Inexpensive for a dual band, three stream adaptor.
This tiny adapter provides an excellent connection to my 5GHz three steam router. This is the first time I haven't felt handicapped by my wireless connection. Nice, stable, and fast connection. This is now my go-to adapter for client's needing wireless on their desktop.

Blazing fast wireless connection.
Small size.
450mbps connection.
Easy to install.
None yet
I bought this along with a cisco dual band EA3500 router which supports 450mbps connection. The speed is amazing. Wired connection was not an option where I live, so I had to go wireless without losing too much performance. I have to say this wireless setup is by far the best I tried. Blazing fast network streaming, downloading and even gaming. I tried a PCIe network card and another usb adapter, but it doesn't match the TrendNet Adapter!

My internet connection has a download rate of 30mbps and I reached it easily with this beautiful adapter. Kudo trendnet!

-Very Small, Dualband and carries a good connection
-Trendnet CD utility is horrible on the eyes, its best to keep using the windows built in network manager
- Note that this DOES NOT have a gigabit port like NCIX stated,which should be removed from the listing for this wireless adapter
- It would be nice if it could connect to two simultaneous networks at the same time

Experience: 4 Weeks

Quick connection, up-to-date drivers
Love this thing, it is fairly small, fast, great connection, has WPS connectivity, and my GF says its adorable (looks like a mini-router). 100% on this.

Attractive design
Micro USB
Thin cable
Windows only
Picky reception
This adapter is a shrink version of the TEW-687GA, except it is for Windows machines only while the 687GA will work with any Ethernet port of any devices. User has the option of installing the Trendnet software or driver only. I have noticed of no performance difference so just kept the driver. Like its bigger brother, it is picky on its placement due to the built-in antenna. It works best with either side facing the router, but must be fine-tuned while transferring data for highest throughout, and the difference can be huge. I was able to obtain max ~124Mbps when mated with the TEW-691GR router, but mostly 80Mbps in my room one floor up. The 687GA is pretty much the same, and maybe slightly better and less picky. Still, it outperforms the TL-WN822N by about 20Mbps for the same environment. It does get a little warm while the 822N doesn't.

There are 3 things can be improved though.

1) The supplied cable is rather thin and failed to power the adapter when runs on extension cord. I replaced it with the StarTech 28AWG cable.

2) The bottom screw nears the USB port is too long and pushing the circuit board and USB port way off. I had to file it down for proper fit.

3) The vent at the bottom is sealed by the rubber feet if stands on the table. Since the adapter gets warm, it is best to raise it up a little for better circulation. Or better yet, just tape it on its side to something.
