Size and Design:
The best part about this is that it is very compact in size and very sober and elegant in design. This is a big plus as it is easy plug in and use, add to it the good sober design.
The build quality is undoubtedly superb. Just no qualms about that, at all. When held, it doesnt give off that cheap and flimsy product-like feeling. It is good sturdy with its build quality.
This part is also a big plus as the item was well cushioned and packaged with all the necessary items that ensured that no damage could have been caused to the product during transportation. This ensures that I as a customer have received something not damaged internally already.
This is actually good but not great part with the product.
The good part is that a CD has been provided with it along with a manual.
The not great part is that NO LINUX SUPPORT has been given from Version 2 onwards. This is bad, really.
It easily supports net speeds upto 300 Mbps. Practically speaking, I have tested it at my home and it easily supports net speed of over 100-150 Mbps without a sigh.
On testing I found that it did connect to 5GHz network, without any issue.
Please mark its not feet its metres. Multiply metres x 3 to get the distance in feet.
It easily connects to my laptop or phone from 7 metres across one room. So thats 21 feet. I mean even our old bluetooth used to connect to about 15 ft.
So 20-25 feet is not at all an issue with this. This is the big plus I found with the product.
From this point of view, so far except the linux non-compatibility issue, I found no other flaws with this product.
So overall its a great product.
Its 3 years so I am assured that atleast for 3 years I am tension-free and not just 1 year, contrary to most electronic items today that only provide 1 year warranty with their items.
