4.0 out of 5 stars Bulky, but fast, 27 Aug. 2013
This review is from: Netgear A6200 802.11ac Dual Band Wi-Fi USB Adapter (Accessory)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This dongle works well and provides a fast connection to a suitable router that supports the 802.11ac WiFi standard.

802.11ac is a successor to the 802.11n WiFi standard. This adaptor supports the new standard as well as the old ones, but to get the benefits, your router must also support 802.11ac. Faster connections to your router allow computers, phones and tablets connected to the router to communicate faster with each other, but of course does not improve the speed of the connection to the internet.

This dongle is definitely designed for desktop rather than laptop computers, as it is quite bulky. It comes with a stand, but can ve connected directly to a USB port. This may however block adjacent USB ports. To reduce this problem slightly, the USB connector does tilt. The black part contains its antennae and can be rotated to allow you to set their angle in alignment with your router's antennae for the best possible signal.

It was happy to use the automated WPS connector to make a secure connection to our TP-Link router.

Overall, I think it's a decent dongle, but be prepared to accept that it is quite large compared to other WiFi dongles.
