3 out of 5 eggsOld device

Pros: Small, portable and quick access to wifi. Windows 8.1 picked it right up and put it to work before I could even install the drivers that came with it (which is uncommon to the ones I've used before)

Cons: This device is OLD. The latest driver for this unit from TP-Link are dated 2013.. Keeping in mind, in order to FIND the drivers for this on their website, you have to enable "Display End-of-Life Products" - meaning it is no longer a supported device.

Other Thoughts: It may be a single bad unit, but it acts as if it is pulled from the USB port every 4-6 hours and takes a minute or two to be re-discovered by Windows and connect back to WiFi. Signal strength on it is 5-6 on a scale to 1-10, which isn't bad considering it's too small to have a real antenna.

5 out of 5 eggsSurprisingly Good

Pros: Nice and small! It's barely visible!

Great range! I Connected out in my ManCave which is separate from the house and the download speeds were the same as wired which was surprising to me.


Good connection speeds! As said above they were great. Even limited to the 2.4 Ghz band it was snappy.

Great transfer speeds! I transferred a movie from my PC out in my Mancave to a PC inside about 40 FT through 3 walls including aluminum siding and was at 108+ MBs which I could not get with the last AC adapter I had. Complete surprise, I was expecting around 40+.

Easy set -up! The configuration utility was simple and easy to use but there really isn't much to do. It should all of the router in the area and connected to my Buffalo AC 1750 fast and easy. Auto detected the 2.4 Ghz side of my dua band router. The advanced tab has only 2 options to apply if you wish which are SoftAp mode which I won't use and power-saving mode. I don't know how much power you can save but I would assume on a mobile device or a Laptop it could help with battery life.

Cons: I seriously cannot find any cons with this. This is very rare for me with my reviews so that says something.

Other Thoughts: I have reviewed a ton of networking products recently and I know this is just a simple N150 wifi adapter but it has been most impressive to me. Especially considering the price.

Please note that with an older and less powerful router your experience my not be as good but I would bet that an N300 or better router would yield close to similar results as being an N150 adapter it should have it's limitations anyway.

Conclusion - I like it and will find this very useful going forward.

5 out of 5 eggsIt works!

Pros: I got this for a laptop for which the internal wireless adapter had died. Installation was trouble-free on Windows 7 and it works great. The laptop is only used for web browsing, e-mail, and office applications, so I really can't speak to the speed, but it seems to work quite well for what it's being used for.

Cons: None so far.

3 out of 5 eggsIt worked, but fell apart

Pros: It worked out of the box, small, inexpensive. It allowed us to put our family's static web server PC with Server2008 in the garage out of sight.

Cons: It's so cheaply made the top fell off when I pulled it out of the USB slot. Little metal parts were dangling all around, I'm glad I got two. I've had TP-Link equipment before, it's cheap and often fails.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat short-distance capability

Pros: Bought this for a desktop PC, installed about 8 feet away from the gateway because I didn't want to run a cord.

At such a short distance, I'm getting almost identical results and when I had my PC wired to the router. 30/6, ~20 ms ping on a Comcast Performance (25 Mbps) connection.

Cons: Had to go to the website to download drivers? Maybe?

Other Thoughts: Lacking an antenna, it may suffer at further distance or with obstructions. But for almost the same cost as a long Cat6 cable, I have no complaints with the performance.

1 out of 5 eggsDesign Flaws, Unreliable, Overrated!

Pros: * On Windows 8.1 (x64) it installed at startup and I was able to connect to the network at login
* Has nice green LED

Cons: * This card has MAJOR DESIGN FLAWS. I'm only able to download at about 2 Mbps (.25 megabyte per second) on a card advertised as being capable of 150 Mbps!
* No drivers for Windows 8 from TP-Link (version 1)!
* Not to be used for fast internet speed, file transfers on a LAN, RDP, etc!

Other Thoughts: I thought I was getting a good product from TP-Link and I was wrong. This adapter is obviously flawed in it's engineering. It is especially disappointing for users of high internet speed, file transferring, RDP, etc. If your goal is to save a USB slot then get something like this: 6in USB 2.0 Extension Adapter Cable A to A - M/F and the USB card of your choice.

1 out of 5 eggsDont Buy (personal opinon)

Pros: Cheap
Low Profile
Easy Install

Cons: Doesn't stay connected
No constant speed. ( what i mean by that is it will be fast one second and then slow the next. Like 4MBPS to .06 MBPS)
Software conflicts with windows.

Other Thoughts: Overall i wish that i didn't buy this. I bought this for my desktop because i don't have an Ethernet jack. If you do buy this i wish you better luck than ive had with mine.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsYes, buy this

Pros: Why would someone want to buy this product? Because they need access to the internet in order to check their emails, run some google searches, and watch a youtube video or two.

The whole purpose of this wi-fi dongle is to give the people with little or no tech experience at all, that have a desktop with no wireless internet or a laptop who's wi-fi dongle inside recently broke -- a chance to experience the internet once more. This dongle specifically fits that niche, because it is not meant to solve the problem of online gaming or streaming from your pc. The paragraph before this is the exact reason someone should buy this product.

This product is/has:
- a great price (12$!)
- super easy to set up
- very fast setup
- small and insignificant

Cons: I don't have any, a cave man can set this up, eventually they will find out where the disc goes, and where the USB dongle goes.

4 out of 5 eggsInexpensive, but not the fastest

Pros: The device is well packaged and includes the Nano Adapter, a driver installation CD and a small instruction booklet. At first, I attempted to install the device and allow Windows to choose a drive, but there wasn't one available. Not wanting to use the CD, so I got the latest drivers, I downloaded them from the TP-LINK website. They were easy to find and the installation only took a few minutes.

The adapter is very low profile, as the name implies, so you don't have to worry about bumping it on something while you're carrying around your laptop.

Cons: It's not very fast and I got no where near the 150Mbps theoretical maximum.

I was averaging about 15-22Mbps down and 8-11Mbps up on a 30/30 FIOS connection. This is with the laptop sitting on my living room coffee table where I typically work. My internal card will max out the connection.

The speed is quick enough that unless you're transferring or downloading large files, I don't think it will impact your productivity.

I deducted one egg for the slow speed.

Other Thoughts: I've been an advocate for TP-LINK products in the last year, but this one falls a bit short on the recommendation scale. It would be great for someone that needs a replacement Wifi adapter for their laptop and doesn't do much in the way of large file transfers.

It comes at a great price point and installation is a breeze. As for recommending it to people, I would have to ask about their file transfer usage before passing along a recommendation.
