Top Customer Reviews
-arrived perfectly. the box was in perfect condition. the actual adapter was too.
-incredibly easy to use. just hook it onto the back, and the xbox takes over. all you have to do is enter your wifi password. that is it.
-it catches the signal. my wifi is pretty far away from my xbox. i was very worried i wouldn't get a good signal. but i get full strenth.
-it isn't noticable. it hooks onto the back of the xbox, so it isn't distracting or ugly.
-the price. it is steep price for what it is, but i purchased it for the peace of mind knowing that IT WILL WORK. that made it worth it.
conclusion? yes. i would buy this again. it works beautifully.
What burns me is that I have to buy this at all when I own an Xbox 360 Slim, which ostensibly ALREADY has WiFi N in it. But Microsoft skimped on the WiFi N that's built into the Xboxes; it's single-antenna-only and 2.4-GHz-only, so it's barely better than WiFi G. If you want any of the real benefits of WiFi N, you have to shell out for this overpriced adapter just like with the other Xbox 360 models. Which, again, works great, but boo on Microsoft for advertising WiFi N as a feature of the Slim and then barely delivering.
This external adapter is much better as it has two antennas and works in the 5 GHz band (while remaining compatible with the 2.4 GHz band).
In any event the end result is that HD streaming from a Windows Media Center PC works perfectly with this adapter (when paired with a good router).
Cons include the stiff price, and the fact that the slim does not have the holes to clamp this adapter to, so you need to keep it next to the Xbox (on its little feet) rather than clamped into it.
