    Pros: Installation was extremely easy under Windows 7. The default Win7 Wireless Connection Utility is used in lieu of the included TP-Link Utility. Installation was also easy under Windows XP.
    Cons: None, so far.
    Installation was extremely easy under Windows 7. The default Win7 Wireless Connection Utility is used in lieu of the included TP-Link Utility. Installation was also easy under Windows XP. None, so far. Some have stated that they which the unit was not white, so as to better match their black/grey computer equipment. Not necessarily a negative though, and if you attach the unit to a wall using double-sided tape, or Velcro, it will blend in with the wall nicely. I'm not connecting at the rated 300Mbps, but then again my router is a Cisco Valet (not a TP-Link) and there are two floors between the Valet and this TP-Link, which I currently have connected to my computer in the basement. I had been using those 200Mbps NetGear PowerLine Ethernet adapters, but there was too much noise in the wiring, even though the wiring in this house is only about 10 years old. With the PowerLine adapters I was getting between 2Mbps and 4Mbps down here in the basement... barely enough to keep those adapters connected. At the moment my TL-WN822N is connected at 216Mbps... FAR greater bandwidth than those PowerLine Adapters. A speed test yields a download speed of about 15Mbps, which is the max my plan offers

    Pros: Easy to install, and great range! Also there were none of the low connectivity issues in my internet connection, which I had to deal with in both the Belkin and D-link wireless adapters.
    Cons: absolutely none!

    Pros: Reasonable price, easy set up and works great. Easy for my wife to make look like a rabbit sitting on her desk :)
    Cons: None so far
    Reasonable price, easy set up and works great. Easy for my wife to make look like a rabbit sitting on her desk :) None so far Took all of about 10 minutes to set up with Win XP. I loaded the driver directly without installing the whole software package, then installed only the WPS software to auto connect to my Netgear router. Unplugged the LAN cable, rebooted and it found & connected to the wireless. It also found about 10 others in my area so I went into the router and changed it to connect to the MAC address, made it so it connect on boot, turned off SSIOD broadcast and rebooted to verify. Works great, no problems. I shouldn't have waited so long to get rid of the cable in the middle of my office.

    Pros: I've been through a number of WIFI adapters over the years. This one has to be the easiest, best working yet. Finally, a product that let me know it only installed the driver needed (Windows7) and no additional bloatware. 300Mbps Link and rock solid even when computer wakes up from sleep mode. Unlike my last N adapter (Encore ENUWI-N) that kept dropping the connection when the comp. went into sleep mode. Can't beat it for $18/free shipping.
    Cons: None, except that it's white. I would have preferred black but that's minor.

    New Egg shipped extremely fast! Gotta love New Egg!!

    Pros: I upgraded my home wireless network and needed an adapter for my PC which is connected to my LCD TV in the den. Since there is no LAN hardwired in this room, I needed a fast wireless to watch Hulu, Netflix, and other streaming videos and it's performing as advertised. I'm using this with at TL-WR841N router which is also performing flawlessly.
    Cons: None found

    Pros: Cheap, G mode is ok
    Cons: Doesn't work in N mode
    Cheap, G mode is ok Doesn't work in N mode Windows 7 x64, Airport Express.
    Tried all kind of setups but cannot get it to work in N. Maybe because of some issues with Airport Express, maybe something else.

    Pros: Good transfer rates, low cost.
    Cons: It would not connect to my Belkin router with using WEP 64bit, plus it kept trying to connect via G with the router on B/G/N mode. I set my router ONLY to N, and security to WEP2-Personal and it worked fine.
    I did not mark an egg off as this could be my router, i have had it a while and it does have some funky little quirks (cant really explain its random little glitches). I will give this the benefit of the doubt and call it my routers fault.
