UPDATE 1 Month: At this point I have lowered my review to 1 star. The adapter deteriorated exactly as expected. I am returning this to Amazon.

Right now I've only used this adapter a week, and there has been 4 disconnects. If you check out reviews on Newegg, Amazon, and Cnet for a new one of these adapters, you'll quickly find a trend; this adapter overheats and disconnects. It especially happens when you are utilizing high traffic, aka, when you need it to stay connected the most (streaming netflix/hulu, downloading, online gaming, etc.) I wish I had listened to the reviews I read on the pages selling the new adapters because now I KNOW from experience that the heat degradation will continue to compound and it will only get worse and worse. I was being naive in thinking that "refurbished" actually meant the company fixed the fidelity issues regarding this adapter, and are now selling "fixed" versions. If one week has me giving this 3 stars, I wonder what one month will have me thinking.

I bought this to connect an old laptop to stream high bit-rate video more reliably. That did not work as expected. This thing does provide good transfer speed, given decent connection strength, but it would not stay connected. It would effectively become "disconnected" from the computer and you have to plug it out and then replug into the USB port to regain connection. This would happen in the midst of streaming video, and it would sometimes do so multiple times in an hour.

Now that seems like it deserves zero or negative stars even, but I still gave it 3 stars because the solution was really easy and cheap for me. Suspecting that it may be failing when it was not able to draw sufficient power out of the USB port, I got an USB Y cable for less than 5 bucks (this is what I got: http://www.amazon.com/OEM-UTStarcom-USB-Adapter-Cable/dp/B002W8EDOM/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1371457078&sr=8-5&keywords=usb+y+cable), and after getting it to draw power from two USB ports, I have never had a single disconnect. So for around 15-20 bucks (including the cost of Y cable), this is still a cheap way to give your device decent wireless connection, but it doesn't work reliably out of the box. I believe that those that intend to use it for mostly low-bandwidth applications, such as web browsing, music streaming, etc probably wouldn't face this problem. But if you use this for something more heavy duty, I think you'll suffer disconnects as well, and if so, try a Y-cable.

FYI, an USB Y-cable is an USB extension cable that is designed to plug to two USB ports at one end and to the USB device on the other end. These cables exist because many devices (external hard drive, smartphones, etc) designed to be powered via a USB port simply requires more power than a single USB port can provide.

The adapter is the right size and well built. It installs easily. This is where it stops. There appears to be some kind of flaw that causes the adapter to stop performing when it gets warm. The speed will drop to 10 Mbps or below and requires "repair" or restart.

Ordered this to work with a Belkin dual band router and was able to get it to work right out of the box with no issues. Easy to setup and use. Vendor shipped it fast and I will probably purchase another one or two to go with the new router.

It was fine for the first 2 days then it started dropping signal every 5-10 minutes. Waste of 11 dollars.

The adapter arrived quickly and was very easy to set up. I followed the instructions, placed the cd that came with it in the computer prior to connecting the adapter and everything worked great. The product shows no signs of prior use and has been working well since we installed it. Very good solution for our needs. We don't have any walls to go through to connect to our wireless network,but we are getting full bars about 25 ft. away.

I had wanted to get one with a base so I could position for maximum reception but I made do with an USB 2 high speed extension cable and a pencil cup to hold it in place. Works great for streaming Netflix to my TV and is handy for use on my older HP mini that I take on trips. Very good, I do have a Cisco with the base for one of my other computers and they are excellent products.
