Summary: Works very well, though if you have a Mac you'll want to download the latest driver. On a 15" MacBook Pro (mid 2007) running OS X Yosemite I sometimes need to "turn radio off" and then "turn radio on" when the Mac wakes from sleep. You won't see a wifi connection icon in the status bar, but the app shows both transmit and receive speeds. For reasons I haven't resolved and never will, the Mac's built in WiFi adapter was not working.
Still very fast and in Windows it's totally hassle free and setup is easy.

Summary: Have one of these but v1.0, which seems a lot easier to use with Linux. This one still does although depending on distro it may need a couple of tweaks. Still very fast and in Windows it's totally hassle free and setup is easy.
Summary: This device works well with a Raspberry Pi. It was recognized by the latest Raspbian distro (June 2014) running on an RPi model B+ without any extra work on my part. I have a collection of WIFI dongles now. I was specifically trying to find a dongle that combined low current consumption, but long wireless range. Some nano adapters are super small and don't draw much current, but they have relatively weak wireless output.
Summary: Ok, so here's the story. Purchase a new custom build computer. Was using an Edimax 150 Mbps Wireless Mini-Sized USB Adapter. Worked great. Installed was a snap. So I figured I'd move up with the new Windows 7 to take advantage of the computer's capability. However, decided to test the new 300 Mbps unit on the old XP unit that had the Edimax 150 Mbps adapter. What a disaster. Loaded the software and installed the USB adapter and it could not find my WiFi router.
