This is version 5, and its not nearly as good as version 1.

Sadly all top reviews are for a rather different product from 2010. Same name, same look, but everything inside is different - mainly, the Wifi chipset.
The current version is v5 and uses a Realtek chipset (8192eu), which is okay but is not nearly as good as the original Atheros chipset of the v1.
Not to mention support on Linux for example, is terrible (only certain kernels supported, patch and code yourself for support of recent kernels, does not use standard kernel wifi stack)
Of course, nowhere it is specified on the Amazon page that this is version 5, so it's mostly all about luck or how much Googlin'g you've done before buying.
