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.

4 out of 5 eggsTiny, Reliable, albeit often slow

Pros: It's really small and you don't have to worry about it getting caught on anything. I never had any issues with range or quality of connection while using it. It worked without fanfare or issue.

Cons: I wouldn't want to make this my permanent network adapter as the speeds on it didn't really bode well for it. This is more of a utilitarian tool to get a wireless connection when you need it. For light network use it's fine there too.

I agree also that the drivers could show up on Windows update or download automatically through windows as opposed to chasing them down.

Other Thoughts: I used this off and on for over a month. Other than lower bandwidth I couldn't tell a difference between integrated wireless in terms of range and it's ability to maintain a connection. For the price it's handy little device to have around for when needed.

3 out of 5 eggsGood performance, small form factor and price

Pros: Clearly the benefit here is for the user with minimal bandwidth needs who just needs a stable connection. To that end, this product meets those needs well. It is scarcely noticeable, very inexpensive, and functions well once up and running for those with low bandwidth needs. If that's you, don't hesitate to purchase. For specific testing results, see Other Thoughts section below.

Cons: If you're looking for device with stellar performance in an suboptimal environment (e.g. at distance or through multiple thick walls), go with a device with additional antennas as the signal strength is good for most scenarios but degrades quickly once distance or obstacles are present. In my testing, I determined that more than 3 walls or stepping outside on my deck presented signal strength/quality issues not present in on-board wireless adapters or other mobile devices.

That said, it shouldn't detract from the performance of this product at its price point. If you have a good stable wireless environment, you'll have no trouble with this product performing well for general browsing, email, internet usage. You shouldn't expect high bitrate streaming or gaming quality wifi from this device.

Finally, if you have an older system be sure to download the latest drivers in advance and be forewarned the software manager is hardly top notch.

Other Thoughts: Test setup included two 802.11 a/b/g/n routers configured for b/n access at 2.4/5.0 GHz. The USB adapter was connected to a modern notebook.

Test Results:

On two different routers capable of up to 300 Mbps, the following downstream and upstream throughput was observed within 20 ft of the wireless access points:
AP1: 8.51 Mbps down / 6.23 Mbps up
AP2: 8.79 Mpbs down / 6.16 Mbps up

5 out of 5 eggsThe Little Adapter That Could!!

Pros: *Size of RF receiver for wireless mice
*No worries of knocking it off and breaking the USB port
*Consistent performance across multiple networks & devices
*80%+ the speed of my wired / higher powered wifi devices
*Tested at work on our corporate network for a few weeks. Rock Solid.

Cons: *Size of RF receivers for wireless mice

Several times now I've thought I lost it forever. LoL You may may not have that problem if you intend on using it for a desktop or updating wifi for an old Laptop.

Other Thoughts: *Due to it's smaller size ensure that you place the adapter on which ever port is facing the direction of your router. As I did notice that connectivity dropped significantly during testing at home while plugged into the back my desktop PC. Plugging the adapter into the front which gave it line of sight greatly improved it's performance! Just keep that in mind.

Otherwise, for the price it is a great little adapter to have. I highly recommend it.

2 out of 5 eggsDoes not work good

Pros: -Small nano USB form factor
-Portable
-Cheap

Cons: -Needs TP-LINK Drivers (windows won't automatically install)
-TP-Link wireless manager is ugly
-SLOW speed 3Mbps!!!

Other Thoughts: I compared this USB wifi adapter vs. a PCI express wifi adapter and the download results were 3Mbps (TP-LINK) vs. 12Mbps (Rosewill PCI express). It works but doesn't even come close to the speeds of a pci express wifi adapter. I would not recommended this product especially if its for a desktop computer.

1 out of 5 eggsSlow and not very useful.

Pros: Small.

Cons: Very slow adapter. Plugged it into my PC across the room from my router and it was painfully slow and was even slower than a half-broken 7 year old Belkin adapter I had. If I had to pick again, I'd just go for a better adapter - one with external antennas - so that I could receive a stronger, faster signal. Also fits very tightly into the USB port so it's hard to take out.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks with Ubuntu

Pros: Product is listed as "Designed for Windows Vista/XP/7/8". I easily installed onto a Ubuntu 14.04 machine and it works great. Did not have to use the installation disk.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product, seriously

Pros: Very low profile, no bigger than the wireless connectors used by Logitech and other wireless peripheral manufacturers. Speed is more than adequate and the price is stellar. Recommend just buying to have on hand, even if you don't need it right away, have a spare on hand wireless "NIC" in case the onboard NIC from your laptop dies.

Cons: No cons unless it dies on you, in which case big deal, it's only a few bucks.

Other Thoughts: Essential to have on hand.
