  1.  Cheap but very cheerfull

    For 18 quid this is an absolute bargain. And its fast , just printed a letter for my son and couldn't believe how quick it was.Best printer i have ever owned.

  2.  Works under Linux after some tweaking

    I have this usb adapter working under Ubuntu 10.4 but only after blacklisting the rt2x00 modules
    If you are new to Linux and prefer not to mess under the hood then this device isn't for you.
    If you willing to give it a go simply do this,

    1. Unplug your USB WiFi adapter and restart your computer.
    2. In terminal: sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

    add these lines to the end of the file:

    blacklist rt2x00usb
    blacklist rt2x00lib
    blacklist rt2800usb

    Save the file

    3. Insert your USB wifi device.

    I only give it 3 stars because of the need for the blacklisting which shouldn't be necessary since its listed by the manufacturer as Linux friendly.

  3.  Bargain

    If you are are Linux user i cant recommend this enough , works perfectly on Ubuntu Jaunty Jackalope out of the box.
    No set up , no need to install drivers , signal strength on average about double what i was getting with my Edimax Wi-Fi adapter and all for a little over a tenner.
    I have seen this card for twice the price elsewhere by the way

    BARGAIN {If you use Linux :-) }
