    "5 star...Love it...To be fair this thing get's worked hard on a daily basis, heavy online gaming sessions and streaming on top of it so really solid but I was hoping for getting something maybe a bit more durable for springing for a more expensive model....This USB adapter antenna is pretty good giving me a moderate signal from a router (about 40 or so feet away) The 5ghz signal increased the speed of my internet by quite a lot over the stock 2.3ghz wireless card and I am very happy with the purchase."

    "Love it...Love it....My mini laptop can do wi fi but a hard wire connection works faster The insignia USB adapter is lite weight & sits in the laptop as a part of it Now I have 2 options available to go online...So, keep in mind that this probably isn't appropriate for something like a wake-on-lan remote application (although it may be smart enough to turn on in such a situation.) But if you have a standard solid Ethernet connection, it's just fine."

    "Not bad...Love it...This bluetooth speaker adapter has good range to my phone but the only thing I don't like about it is that is connects automatically to my phone when I get home which I find annoying if I don't want to listen to music just then and it will keep reconnecting over and over if I don't turn it off....Only issue I had is that because it is always on and has such good range, if I am in another room trying to use another Bluetooth speaker, I have to disable the Logitech unit."

    "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....I don't have a disk drive for my computer so I had to download the drivers for it on a different computer and then load it onto my main computer, but other than that it's worked great so far!"

    "Not bad...Love it!...Though I don't need such a connection most of the time, I wanted an adapter for the times that I mess up the router, (and I've done that several times!) This adapter works just fine....The new MacBook only has a USB-C port and a headphones port so I had to connect this device to a USB 3.0 to USB-C device in order to connect the Ethernet port of the MacBook Pro and transfer over my profile and stored data since it's faster than over wifi."
