Summary: Excellent product - great price - super fast shipment too. When I first opened the packaging, the card was fastened to the retainer bar which was too large for my PC. While I was thinking about how I could make this work - I looked into the box, and at the bottom they included the shorter bar which was for my PC. Then - it was a very simple instal, a few clicks of the mouse - and it was working immediately after that - I highly recommend this.
Summary: The card itself works quite well, but the included antenna is a useless piece of junk. With the included antenna located on top of the computer desk, I was getting barely adequate signal from the router. With the included antenna located next to the computer on the ground, I could not see the router at all.
Worth $15.00 for the connectivity, but use windows drivers, not their SW.

Summary: This is the exact same product as the Rosewill RNX-N150PCX, and the EDIMAX EW-7711In. It "works" best if you use the native Windows drivers (RALINK RT3060 I think)... It is NOT a good card for high speed internet access / multimedia / etc.. It show's connecting at a high speed, then when you are actually uploading or downloading files, it slows down to a crawl. I've tried the EDIMAX drivers, Rosewill Drivers, and the RALINK drivers.
Works great! Much better than wireless cards I've tried in the past.

Summary: After dealing two failing wireless cards (of other brands, one being Linksys) in my desktop computer (which always said they had excellent signal strength, but had choppy/non-existant connections), I decided to try a third one, and this one seemed like a good choice. So far it works great! The connection isn't choppy at all, and it gets speeds as good as my ethernet connection. I also like how the antenna attaches with a cable instead of directly to the card.
Summary: This is exactly what I was looking for because my tower PC sits under a metal desk facing away from the wireless router. What a great value! Nicely made with a gold plated cable connector and a long cable that that allows the antenna to be positioned for optimal pickup. Installed perfectly the first time and works great.
Summary: After moving I found I needed to move my wireless router away from my desktop to be able to cover the whole house. Rather than run a wire to the desktop, I figured I would try this, and it has worked very very well. The install was a breeze. Windows 8 already had the drivers I needed so the install was truly plug and play. Performance wise this adapter screams. My ping times are usually identical to when I had the pc hardwired. I highly recommend.
Summary: I did not receive the upgraded antenna, my extender is 20 feet away and i'm dongles between 3-4 bars, thought it might be linux, so i put it into my win 7, my wifi router is behind my desk, dongles between 4-5 bars....i'm not sure what's going on, maybe i got a gimped antenna, it's black and looks nothing like the antenna in the picture..........kinda disappointing...
Summary: Well, there's not much to say about this product, but here goes. The Good: This product is cheap. It is super simple to install. It worked with Windows 7 without having to install any drivers. The software that comes with it is decent and is quite functional. Reception is acceptable, though pretty average compared to a standard USB dongle.
