Easy to set up. Good speed.
Doesn't come with stand.
My biggest concern before buying this had to do with driver suport. Thankfully OpenELEC automatically recognized this adapter. It works great with the Asus RT-N66U router I have.

Experience: 3 Weeks
 Verified Owner
Easy and working well with Win 8.1
Waste time and stamp to get a rebate
Do not count on the rebate.

The rebate form was submitted on time with all the documents but it was rejected.

They want a real invoice not a printed copy.

Easy to install, fast to connect, intuitive set-up; even for a 64 year old amateur
Delivered in only 2 days from ordering. Fantastic service, NCIX. Set up easy from enclosed CD, and automatically disabled the laptop's adapter that was dropping out randomly. Works at full 300Mbps speed as advertised. (Just make sure that you know your network password if you're not the administrator.)

Looks good
Very easy to set up
Speeds for me were equal to a direct connection
I've been playing games online with it too (Diablo 3, CS:GO, Beyond Earth) and had no lag issues. I'm really happy with this product.

Experience: 2 Years
Looks good, works well, easy setup.
I use this for my living room PC and I am satisfied. It does the job, was easy to setup and the price was decent too.

Experience: 22 Months
Nice looking, works well
Very solid USB adapter, easy to setup and was able to see many more networks than my previous adapter. Very happy with throughput on 5Ghz frequency.

Very satisfied with this purchase.

Experience: 7 Months
Small light with great range.
Everyone that sees it questions what it is.
Love this for my laptop. With some 24Hz interference this boosts the signal pass the interference insuring an excellent signal that almost never gets dropped. Well worth the money even if I'm asked why the microphone looks like that? LOL Or if it's a network shield. It's funny to hear what people think it is, even when I wish they won't disturb me.

Experience: 5 Months

Dual band
Great range
Never drop  connection
Size a little too big
No USB stand
Bought it to replace a Belkin USB adapter and it's very reliable from day one. It has a much better range, faster connectivity and never drops the connection.

Minor drawbacks are that it's larger in size, and although it comes with a USB extension cable, it isn't a USB stand. However, these pale into insignificance compared to its superior performance.

Experience: 1 Days
-Great Reception
-Plug and Play with Windows 8.1 Pro
I had an issue with my Linksys AE2500 freezing and cutting out during upload. This thing certainly does not have that problem. Great reception and fully compatible with Windows 8.1 Pro. A little pricey for a USB network adapter but I guess you get what you pay for and it's worth every penny.

Experience: 2 Weeks
 Verified Owner
fast, nice look, stable and easy install
bought two for my desktop, it only takes 1 mins to get it all set to use!
