    WDTV Live
    I wanted to note that I was able to use this as the wireless adapter for a WDTV live after searching for the firmware 1.02.19 and applying it to my WD TV Live. I have watched a few things on it with fine results although I have not tried any extremely high bit rate movies.

    Works with Seagate Freeagent Theater +
    It clearly states that this adapter will NOT work with anything other than a PC or Mac. I'm glad I didn't read the description. I was going to buy one of the recommened wireless adapters for the SFA+ but I remembered I had the Monoprice one that I hadn't used for my old laptop. I plugged it in the back of the SFA+ and it found it and worked right away.

    PROS: Cheap and worked out of the box.

    CONS: none

    Work like a charm!
    Work as soon as plugged (on Windows 7) and is quite fast. And it's the cheapest I've seen by far.

    PROS: Work as soon as plugged (on Windows 7 after drivers installation included in the OS)

    CONS: None!

    Worked well
    I used it with Ubuntu 9.10 and installed the linux drivers manually using method 2. Worked well.

    Pleasantly Surprised
    It works. Gives me good, solid & fast connectivity from the first floor of my house to the third floor. Who can complain for the price?

    PROS: Inexpensive, Great range, Easy configuration

    CONS: Thought I had one when it died today but then realized I bought it 3 years, NONE!

    Great Wireless Adapter
    Works as advertised once you have updated Windows 7.

    PROS: USB. Great reception.

    CONS: If installing on Windows 7 machine ENSURE you are fully updated. This device WILL NOT WORK with vanilla Windows 7. One of the patches that is downloaded and installed using default update settings must be installed before this will work. I've used three of these and each time I've had to fully update Windows 7 before the wireless will work. You do not need the default drivers if you update Windows 7 but they are there if you need them? I did not need them for any of my installs.

    Wide... can not plug anything into an adjacent USB without force. Does not come with drivers, these must be downloaded from a site linked to in the product page.

    Had this adapter for about a month now, it works really well. It gets almost full signal strength through several walls across the house on a wireless N router. I haven't tested this because it's used on a desktop which I can't move to test signal quality for obvious reasons. The software, manual, and drivers included are a bit skimpy but adequate. I wouldn't recommend absolute tech beginners try to set these up without assistance. I was able to have this work on Mac OS X, Windows XP, and Win. 7. Mac OS X requires a very unpolished utility to connect, but, that's at the chipset manufacturer's fault, not Monoprice's. Can't argue about the quality for the price. Would buy more if needed!

    PROS: Good range, compatible with most computers.

    CONS: Can't think of any serious ones.

    Works great - using with WD TV Live Plus
    Works well, good signal strength on my 802.11N network. I am using with WD TV Live Plus and Apple Airport Extreme router in 802.11N/G mode.

    PROS: Works out of the box with WD TV Live Plus (despite what WD website might say). Seems to get decent signal and streams 720p content no problem. Great value.

    CONS: None so far, works well, good value.

    Bought this for my son's PC. Install instructions were easy, and item works perfectly.

    PROS: Easy to install

    CONS: None
    August 27, 2014

    PROS: Works Awesome!!! I previously bought a PCI wireless lan that supports 802.11 N but for whatever reason it would not connect using N and reverted back to G, would take a long time to make the initial connection to the network, and periodically dropped the connection, more gain on the antenna, and was 4 times the price as the USB. BUT THE mini USB WORKS FLAWLESSLY, FAST CONNECTIONS THE NETWORK, AND SO FAR NO DROPS. GREAT PRODUCT!!! AND THE RIGHT PRICE.
