    "Love it...Works ....I would recommend it for a computer that is within 10 or 15 feet of the router or in the same room but for a desktop that has several walls and some distance between the computer and the router I would suggest getting a free standing receiver that has its own base and can be moved around a little to get a better signal....This is a wonderful Dual-Band Wireless-AC USB Network adapter to have as a backup if your computer's ethernet goes down and you need to have wireless access"

    "A Gem...Not bad...An improvement would be a rugged USB extension that allo0wed the device to be placed a distance from the laptop, if nothing other than to prevent breaking it off from the base, much like the pitfalls we have all had with a laptop a time or two....I like the fact that it is very small and it keeps its promise on delivering a fast connection......highly recommened for those who dont have a 5GHZ connection in their laptop or just want to use it with a desktop with no wifi card."
