  • Summary: This item worked for approximately 48 hours for me and it was a bit spotty even then randomly disconnecting. I ended up returning it because on my third day of use it simply ceased to function.

Plastic Cover Broke After 2 Months of Use

Critical, Amazon
11 March 2015
  • Summary: The wireless ability worked fine, but the black plastic cover broke off after about 2 Months of use. The plastic is very thin and brittle that is used for the cover. I used this on a laptop that I use only about half of the time, and only take it in and out when I transport the laptop.

  • Summary: Of course I was very excited to hear that I would finally be able to have internet on a Mac tower that did not come with it's own WIFI card installed. SO this would have been the easy fix, right?

EDIMAX EW-781 N150 USB 2.O nano

Stanley H., Newegg
15 February 2015
  • Summary: A waste of time and money, buy NETGEAR or ASUS for the same money. Auto install and connect without crashing your computer.
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: IT Professional: I tried this USB WIFI adaptor in three different systems. Windows does not recognize it at all. The install disk was no help. You are better off downloading the drivers and installing before using the component. A older Dell desktop it crashed the system. Newer systems accept it ...

Mixed feelings

Andrew S., Newegg
15 February 2015
  • Summary: Don't buy if you want something reliable. Do not use if you need to download anything > 1GB or if you plan to use for online gaming.
  • Pros: Cheap, conveniently small, etc. If you want to relive the 90's where connections frequently dropped, loading web pages took minutes and sometimes hours this is the product for you.
  • Cons: Too unreliable. Very disappointed in this product. It seems like anything as small as a sneeze will make you lose connection no matter how close you are to an access point. Online gaming, skype? Forget about it. Half the time can't even load a YouTube video properly without dropping the connectio...

  • Pros: none, see cons
  • Cons: Junk, worse than the netgear I was trying to improve upon. Constant connection drops and terrible speed, literally sitting 3 ft from the router with no obstructions
