  • Works, but made very cheaply

    posted by Jordanvlieg on 16:24:44 G3T 06/03/2014 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Works perfectly with my raspberry Pi, no issues connecting to the network. My mac recognizes it as well and could use it to connect to the network

    Cons: Rather slow transfer speed, could be due to the Pi and not the dongle Plastic casing broke almost immediately Very difficult to insert and remove from USB ports (which is what led to the plastic breaking) You can definitely tell it is a cheap product

    Other: Definitely worth the very low price, dont spend triple on one somewhere else!

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Small size and with price tag smaller than for a pack of cigarettes. You can't really ask much more. Very fitting companion to an ARM development board like ODROID-3U to create a small footprint device, suitable for semi-stealth operations.

    Cons: The description says "Chipset: RTL8192U" but actually the chipset is Ralink (bought by MediaTek in 2011) RT2000 based chip.

    Other: Regardless of having a wrong chipset mentioned in product specifications, the chipset is still one which is widely supported, including Linux kernel. For this kind of a price I can't really complain.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Besides the obvious advantage of its small form factor and low price, the product is very easy and quick to use, providing high performance networking thanks to its compliance with the 802.11N standard. The device is also fully compatible with the Raspberry Pi by simply installing the firmware-ralink drivers, and it does not require a powered hub to work.

    Cons: None.

    Other: Definitely a great wifi dongle at the best price.

  • Great item for older laptops

    posted by LarsNorw on 15:07:25 G12T 09/12/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: I bought this because I had an older laptop that did not support the n standard nor did it connect with WPA2 only WEP. This device connected instantly. As a bonus, you can also use it as an wireless router. Just plug into a computer with internet connection via a Cat.5 cable and then using the software you can make an wireless zone using any password or encryption standard. You have to read the manual for Ralink 2870 software as it is crucial to understand ikons for setup.

    Cons: You need to install the latest driver for Ralink 2870 chip-set. Search for it on the internet. I don't think the CD has the latest driver, and also the mini CD-R enclosed was barely readable. Since the antenna is small and built in, you don't get the same range as two built antennas in your PC. But still, works well if you are using it in the same room or house of wood.

    Other: Great device for either making a wireless zone or helping an older laptop connect.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Great quality from such a small device. Small, doesn't get in the way or break easily due to size. Signal rivals quality from larger devices that cost up to 10 times as much.

    Cons: Easy to lose. Can fall into the worst places to try and get it back from.

    Other: You cannot beat the price! Even if you are unsure of what you'll be getting for such a cheap price and a small item, it is well worth that risk. Being low profile in size, they are perfect for a laptop needing an alternative wireless connection.

  • speedy little wifi adaptor

    posted by Bulldog0204 on 06:01:31 G3T 20/03/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Fits nice and neat into the usb port and allows access to other usb ports below this one on the laptop. Shows a marked increase in wireless connectivity speeds and web pages are loading more quickly. Streaming video wirelessly to this receiver is excellent too with no lagging as before.

    Cons: None

    Other: Excellent for the price Highly recommended
