Easy install. Great price
My Lenovo laptop's internal wifi adapter died so bought this TP Link unit. The provided software installed first time in a few minutes. The wifi has been working flawlessly since. Pretty decent range too. Laptop can now get N as well as previous B/G. Tiny form factor makes it hardly noticeable. Easy fix for my laptop and at a great price.

Ridiculously small
None so far
Perfect match for my raspberry pi2!

Works, cheap, small form factor hard to hit
Not so fast (as expected)
Use it to replace an embedded card that broke. Have been using different usb but tend to hit them and bend the usb connector. Since this for factor is very small it can't happen.

It is perfect for internet as is 802.11n but it is not suitable for large transfer with a home server or NAS for example.

- It DOES work with Mac OS X (Yosemite) if you install the right Realtek drivers (which is the manufacturer for the chipset inside)
- Also works out-of-the-box with Windows 8.1, no extra drivers required (I've been using it on my Bootcamp installation)
- Very small, so you can leave it on a laptop all the time and even put the laptop in a sleeve
- Very reliable; haven't dropped any strong connections
- The Realtek "Wireless Network Utility" that you can download provides a lot of useful information about the wireless connection; effective transmission speed, signal strength, etc.. Very useful if you are trying to debug a poor connection
- Doesn't work with WPA2 Enterprise networks; if your network requires a username and password, this adapter doesn't support that. I don't imagine that anyone in a corporation would be using this adapter, but WPA2 Enterprise is often used at universities, so students beware!
- A bit slow at picking up new networks when you initially turn it on; it will always immediately pickup networks it has connected to before, but can take 5-10s to discover new networks.
My 2011 Macbook Pro 15" had its wireless fail, and instead of repairing it, I went with this as a cheap solution. Macs are not officially supported by TP-Link, but once I googled a bit (before purchase), I realized that this is just a Realtek chipset inside, for which drivers are fairly readily available. Once you download Realtek's drivers, you also get a "Wireless Network Utility" app that allows you connect to networks, and shows more advanced info of the wireless connection (effective transmission speed over network, signal strength by %).

I've also used this on my Windows 8.1 as a Bootcamp installation, where it works flawlessly with no extra drivers required.

For such a compact adapter with an extremely small in-built antenna, it has excellent RX (receiving) signal strength, and mediocre TX (transmitting) signal strength. However, I have discovered one little quirk/trick: in some areas of my house, this adapter doesn't broadcast  a strong enough signal to my router, resulting in VERY slow connection speeds (21Mbps). Essentially, the tablet stylus is acting as a very large antenna for the adapter, greatly boosting the signal strength. If you buy this adapter, you may sometimes not get a good enough TX signal at far distances from the router, but placing a long metal pen/object next to it might fix your problem.

Overall, would definitely buy again. For those who are DIY, you'll find ways to make this adapter work on unsupported operating systems (since the Realtek chipset is pretty generic) as well as extend the range.

+Incredibly small
+Great signal and speeds
For $9 I wasn't expecting a lot, but it's just as good as my old $30 one.

Great Price
Low Profile
Great Performance
Downloaded drivers from website, works like a charm.

Matches the DL/UL/Ping performance of my ethernet cable according to (50/5 Shaw Alberta), in home media streaming is flawless from PC to Tablet via Wifi.

For $10, far exceeded my expectations. Easy recomendation for someone needing a USB wifi adapter.

-Compact so not sticking out
-Decent speed for price
I went out and bought this today to replace the one i broke because that one was sticking out so i accidentally stepped on it. This however, is the perfect size and gets the job done at the price. Overall, I am happy with it.

The drivers are included in the package.
Price, paid $9.99.
Small size.
Connectivity problems.
Slow speeds [see summary].
When I paid $10 for this I did not expect greatness. I did however expect average performance, about what I get from my built-in laptop wifi card.

I bought this to put on my desktop that I just built which is located literally one floor up from the router I am connecting to.
My laptop gets download speeds of ~1.8mps, with this card I am lucky to get more than 400kbs.
I have installed the official drivers for my specific version # [#2.1] from the tpLink website and yet the spikes and lags in my connection persist. I have switched the router to 40mhz but I see no improvement.

I would recommend buying a better product.
btw. If you have a solution to this problem please let me know.
