What is Bulk Rate? BulkRate is a semi-wholesale system with items priced separately from retail. When you use bulk rates, a flat $1.70 registered air mail fee will automatically be added to your cart to ensure delivery of package.

    Pros: it will detect wifi like it supposed to. i tested it on our router and it very well detected the signal when i was far and right by it by showing me how powerful the signal is.

    Cons: it takes a few seconds (4 seconds) to detect the signal even if there isn't any. I do find it kinda annoying but its alright.

    Other: this is more expensive than i would like it to be. it isnt the only wifi detector out there. this one is alright. it fits in your pocket and it doesn't take too much space. its really great to have in handy if you travel and want to get wifi from a house hold. that's the only reason you could have it unless your in a airport and want the best signal from where your sitting.

    Pros: Very small, can fit it anywhere.
    Easy to use, just press a button, the green lights will blink in an order 4 times, then it will show you the results.
    Red - no signal.
    1 Green - weak signal.
    2 Greens - medium signal.
    3 Greens - strong signal.
    I had a chance to try it a bit, very comfortable.
    Build quality is good, doesn't look like it'll break or something.
    It has 2 screws, I guess to take apart and change batteries.
    I tried taking it apart, took the screws out and the top still didn't come out, I guess it's also glued or held in place by something. I gave up and put the screws back in, didn't want to get rough and brak it on the first day.
    One other pro for me would be the ability to detect hidden networks, networks that their SSID is not broadcasted, in case you want to sniff out a network and hack it (read cons for comment).

    Cons: It's a regular radio wave detector, so it'll detect anything that works on 2.4GHZ frequency (Microwave ovens, coreless phones, some of the wireless computer mouses and keyboards), so you can't really know if it's a router nearby or a microwave oven.
    I tried it a few times, showed me weak to strong signals, even though
    My Ipod Touch 3G could't find anything, maybe it was too far away, next time i'll try another app to detect networks on my ipod.

    Other: It's a good and fun gadget, if you are looking for a network, this can help.
    I guess in a crowded urban area it won't do any good because it can detect other devices.

    Pros: Looks nice on your keyring due to the smoked plastic that is over the LEDs and the button Feels very solidly built Easy to use, just click and watch the LEDs LEDs are bright enough Comes with a wrist strap

    Cons: Very inaccurate, was standing right next to my wireless AP and it was detecting a weak signal Bulky on your keyring if you are a minimalist. Would be handy to keep in the front pocket of your EDC bag though

    Other: Buy it if you feel like modding the antenna. Otherwise, rather useless...

    Pros: - Detect wireless signal fast.
    - Easy to understand:
    * red led: no signal;
    * one green led: weak signal;
    * two green leds: medium signal;
    * tree green leds: strong signal;

    Cons: - Is some places, the signal is not detected, but I turn on my laptop an try to connect with a very good signal.

    Other: - I got two of those. One is different from other. Don't why, but one of them gets a better signal detection.
