    Pros: i got my second one. difference: - first was made in china, and the second in korea. -first one had an 2 DBi Omni and the second one an 5 Dbi the build quality from the second one is better

    Cons: the only real con is the single USB lead instead of the double one. the other cons are gone with the 2nd korean one

    Other: there seems to be more versions with the same brand and type number that are all a bit different from each other. for the price, it is the best you can get

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: All work great - nice idea, engineering and electronic device. Wherever you go, you have wifi connection.

    Cons: I received one of those devices wich is not worked. After that I and my friend who is a technical expert in electronics resolved issue with product Wifly city. There is a electronic element /resistor/ R34 - 1,8kOm which is badly soldered. On mine wifly city this resistor even was missing. My friend replaced missing element and all works fine now. On the other product wifly city shiped from you have the same issue - bad soldered R34. If you have communication with manifacturer of this product please be kind to tell them to improve their quality control and to manifacture quality electronic devices!

    Other: Nice product but worst build.

    Pros: - verry compact adapter - High power. - SMA Male connector for external antenna - Nice box, good packed

    Cons: - Casing of the adapter - Driver/Application for win7 is not included - Older backtrack 3 CD in Chinese. - Small 2Db Antenna included in the package.

    Other: Great deal for your money. perfect adapter, i miss the dual usb lead in my box. on one usb connector it is never possible to draw more then 500 Mw. on this moment i can not tell if it is really 800 Mw, going to test it tonight.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: -> Works with Ubuntu Linux out-of-the-box -> Performance is good, seems to be more stable when paired with distant AP's -> is absolutely amazing when paired with sku.25292 (picks up 3 AP's by itself, and over 20 with the antenna).

    Cons: -> only includes a small antenna. 800mW power only helps transmission, but not reception. -> funky 2-headed USB cable (I guess it draws more power than one port can supply?) -> feels kinda light and plasticky, cheap

    Other: two of these units, and two of sku.25292, and you can communicate over an enormous distance

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Product is useful and works great. I was able to detect wireless spots not seen with my regular and other built in wifi lan. I wa sable to connect to many wifi. Signal strength was seen to increase from one bar to 5. Use right out of the box! It does the job. Ordering more now.

    Cons: No instruction manual. The Linux BackTrack is in Chinese not in English. Product casing, that is to say the outside shell is not very strong and could break if dropped. So be careful. Treat it as fragile and becraeful that the antena does not break off. Thee product is sturdy enough if you it with care.

    Other: I love this item. I was thrilled to connect to locations with it that I could not before. Price is cheap. Supports Linux Backtrack. I like chinese electronic products not because of the built quality but because you get more for your money. They do more great things. I have not compared this item to Alpha brand. I will soon. But I am ordering more of these units. Because i know that they work and because the power can be adjusted with inluded software. NOt so with other models including Alpha. Recommended.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: My laptop picked up 3 Networks with 1 bar each. After I plugged in Wifly (with an extended antenna) I picked up 15 networks. 10 had full bars. very happy. Windows 7 automaticly downloaded drivers. Backtrax Linux Bootable dvd included for hacking WEP networks. Took a bit to figure out as instructions are in chinese but works great

    Cons: Only tested on Windows 7 (but also ran it in xp and vista modes on 7) Setup file does not work for drivers. All instructions provided including PDF files are in chinese. My shippment did not come with an antenna, good thing I bought an extender one. There is no online support of any kind so you need to spend time figuring it out or getting someone to translate

    Other: Best bang for your buck it works sooooo good.

    Pros: It uses the RTL 8178 Chipset, injection supported in linux.
    Supports Win, Lin, Mac
    I tested with BT3 and works flawless, also in windows it comes with RTL manager and is easy to alter the FCC standard to use high power output.
    I laughed a bit when i saw the chinese manual/description of how to use spoonwep and cracking wep decryption.

    Cons: There is only one con, and thats the build quality of the plastic case, but i used some superglue to hold it together, so now its fine :)

    Other: Happy Wardriving :)
