4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good but need to download win 8 drivers, 19 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Edimax EW-7811UN 150Mbps Wireless Nano USB Adapter (Personal Computers)
Generally does exactly what it says on the tin at a reasonable price

I haven't used at great distance as bought for use on a Media centre PC about 6 metres away from router with a brick wall with door between. I'm getting good 4-5 out of 5 bar signal from the rear of the PC in a cabinet. Speed test consistent with my laptop at same range for internet connection. I haven't push tested on network as I don't do media streaming but getting 50+ Mbps on my fibre broadband at this range.

Tiny adaptor so would be idea to upgrade a laptop or where you don't want a massive dongle hanging out. Speed is rated max at 150Mbps which should be fine for most folks but you may need to look at 300Mbps devices if you are serious about streaming HD content

Worth noting you'll need to download drivers if you want to use on a win 8/8.1 PC but packaging does alert you to this. I've knocked a star off for this as this may present a problem for some
