Pros: My Dell Studio laptop's internal Wi-Fi adaptor software always had malfunction issues with every Visa update. After plugging in this USB and running the software this TP-Link solved all of my connection issues. I own several TP Link products and they are all great.
Cons: I have a dual band router that will allow this device to connect as 300Mbps, but the adapter will only connect at 144Mbps now matter if I use Windows 7 to connect the adapter to the router or use their utility software to connect to the router. My router is less then 10 ft away from my test bench...
Pros: I now own 6 of these, gave away 2 as gifts all 6 are working great, as well or better than a PCI Express with antennas I have in another machine I have. Easy to use just plug in and go Win 10 auto installs the drivers.
Cons: The only con I can find is I have lost 2 because they are so small and come out of my pocket so easy, need a little string on them like the USB drives to put on a key chain.
Works well for browsing, not so good for downloading or games

Summary: It works fine for browsing. Speed comparison : When my Lenovo laptop adapter gave 43 Mbps, this gave me 42 Mbps at 12 feet distance and line of sight. When I moved it behind CPU (no line of sight) speed dropped to 35 Mbps.
