    Cecil, South Africa. 4 November 2016

    It works in Windows 10. It takes a bit of work to get it working with Raspberry Pi Model B+. It does not seem to support MAC spoofing, so it cannot be use as a Homepass (Streetpass relay) device for Nintendo 3DS

    Andrew, South Africa. 13 November 2014

    Great little device.

    Ross, South Africa. 6 July 2016

    I bought this for the Raspberry Pi 2b and after hearing that extra drivers where needed I was a little apprehensive. Plugged it in, detected network settings and started working right away. Awesome.

    Jacobus, South Africa. 15 July 2014

    The Best Wifi USB Receiver I've ever owned.

    Can get up to 400kbps transfer on this so i'm happy.
    But for those who want faster speeds get the 300Mbps one, but only if your router can support that high speed.

    Mine can't, so this is perfect. And you can't beat that price.

    Kerwin, South Africa. 8 April 2016

    Very good product. Does as advertised. It is really tiny and works well. Setup is simple.

    George, South Africa. 4 August 2015

    Great product, great price.

    Wesley, South Africa. 27 October 2016

    Picks up the Wi-Fi perfectly.
    Very easy to set up and no connection drops.

    Andre, South Africa. 11 March 2015

    Works like a charm with my Raspberry Pi right from the otherside of my house.

    Kelly, South Africa. 23 March 2016

    Works awesomely, I've never had a problem. Being so tiny I can just leave it in the USB port without worrying about it being knocked. The packaging is fantastic and it is a good quality product.
    Fast, easy ordering and delivery as always. :)

    Wesley, South Africa. 20 May 2016

    It is worth mentioning that this is Version 2 of the device, which uses the RTL8188EUS chipset. This makes a major difference from the V1 (chipset RTL8188CUS) which is the compatible version for ARM based architectures (short of building the driver source yourself).

    This means V2 is notoriously harder to get working on Raspberry Pi.

    Francois, South Africa. 19 January 2017

    Worked out the box, came very quickly and the best experience of a good product

    Michael, South Africa. 25 June 2015

    Excellent range even through 3 walls. No dropouts or issues so far. Recommended.

    Naeem, South Africa. 2 June 2015

    Excellent item. Works well on Windows 64bit. No issues. Great service from Takealot

    Bruce, South Africa. 24 November 2014

    Super impressed at the performance of this item, for this price - it was true plug and play - popped it in, and I was on the network. The range and speed of transmission is also very solid for something so tiny.

    Ralf, South Africa. 23 February 2016

    Works out of the box on Ubuntu 14.04, no issues so far.

    jason, South Africa. 5 May 2016

    great device plug and play cant beat the price

    Donna, South Africa. 1 July 2016

    Works fantastic

    Morné, South Africa. 16 February 2016

    They weren't kidding when they said plug a play. Works perfect on Windows 10. Btw, the USB is gold plated.

    Caesar, South Africa. 3 November 2016

    Love it and works perfectly.

    Robert, South Africa. 6 November 2016

    Great little product, was easy to install and range is reasonable for what you pay. Recommended

    Alistair, South Africa. 11 October 2016

    Not plug-&-play. You need to install the software from the disc which is provided in the packaging.

    Reuben Govender, South Africa. 14 January 2016

    Excellent device. Works very well with no issues at all. Very small and neat. Easy to use other usb ports while this wifi adaptor is connected to existing one. Very happy I that bought it. Highly recommended.

    Alon, South Africa. 4 July 2016

    Plug 'n forget. Worked no problem on RaspberryPi 1 & AppleTV1 with OSMC.

    Les, South Africa. 26 January 2017

    Second one I've bought - first one was for home many months ago, needed one @ church to get desktop PC onto net. Plug in, install driver from CD and away you go, simple as that. Awesome.

    Raees, South Africa. 23 September 2016

    Bought this for my laptop because I was unable to connect with the laptops inbuilt wifi. Connected the USB and it has been working like a champ. Does everything that it is meant to do with no fuss.

    LUKE, South Africa. 6 September 2016

    Works perfectly, nice and small - plug and play.

    Wikus, South Africa. 5 September 2015

    Easy setup, great quality at a great price.

    Duplessis, South Africa. 2 April 2015

    This does what it says.. and what can you expect from a wifi adapter with no antenna? That being said, I was a little disappointed with how much the connection dropped over a 4m range through 2 walls. I have other devices much further with small antennas or even NO antennas that dont drop the connection as often. Originally I bought this for use with my raspberry pi (see below), but I ended up adding it to my secondary computer, running windows.

    DO NOT BUY THIS IF YOU PLAN ON USING IT WITH A RASPBERRY's not supported by Raspbian, and there are no drivers for this for Raspbian either.. I managed to get it working after 5 hours of struggling and working through vague online guides, but really you are better off just buying a different one.

    Lester, South Africa. 12 May 2016

    I had a few issues with drivers. But got support and working great!

    Evert, South Africa. 20 February 2015

    This is my second review on this little product. Ironically I praised it in my first review, and directly afterwards my problems began. I do not think its a bad product now, but it kept on losing connection between my TP-Link router and my PC. The PC had all the correct drivers installed. Most probably there is another software (firmware) problem. I'm currently using a Trendnet wireless N Nano USB in conjunction with my TP-Link router, and I can say, for sure, that there is NO problems with connectivity now.

    Marquin, South Africa. 29 June 2015

    Simple, affordable and does what it should. Bit flaky when using it with citrix remote connection though. Unsure if that's the device or my proximity from the router.

    All in all a good product.

    I'm happy

    Deshen, South Africa. 20 September 2016

    Works great, hasnt given me any issues yet.
    And for the price, couldn't ask for more (or less in this case :P)

    Steven, South Africa. 28 June 2016

    Works flawlessly. Never drops connection. Is fast. 5/7.

    Hilton, South Africa. 13 October 2016

    Works very well. Very happy with this wireless USB receiver.

    Thapelo, South Africa. 19 October 2016

    Works well with my desktop.

    Richard, South Africa. 9 June 2016

    Very satisfied with product so far. Good reception. Easy to install. Working perfectly on my desktop pc with Intel P4 processor and Win XP SP2.

    Leon, South Africa. 10 May 2016

    Good product. Does exactly what you expect from it.

    Gregory, South Africa. 24 March 2016

    Worked first time with no driver issues. (Win 10)

    Dean, South Africa. 31 October 2016

    works great

    Himal, South Africa. 20 February 2016

    Amazing product. Simple and efficient. Reasonable throughput
    Definitely worth the price.

    Hendrik, South Africa. 8 September 2016

    I have bought two of these, and they work great. No problems and easy to set up.

    Print Wirelessly?, South Africa. 7 June 2016

    Can it be connected to a laser printer to print wirelessly?

    Stanley, South Africa. 22 July 2016

    Absolutely Brilliant - plug and play basically. Speed and very reliable. Great value for Money too.

    Dale, South Africa. 21 October 2016

    It works when it wants. It works when it wants. Slow getting slow connection speeds (90mbs) with a modem doing 300Mbs.
    Also keeps dropping connection. Highly annoying.
    But it works when it wants.

    Mish-al, South Africa. 17 January 2017

    It does work but it is quite slow for me to play online and it sometimes just doesn't work forcing me to plug it into another port.

    great, South Africa. 30 November 2016

    Nice and compact easy to configure. I love it.

    Storm, South Africa. 30 April 2016

    Simple little device. Unwrap. Plug in. Game on.

    Yamikani, South Africa. 17 August 2016

    Very easy to use. You just have to plug it in and install the software from the disk. After that, you are ready to go! The size is convenient for laptops as well. The range is decent up to a number of meters but that is okay because I only need it for my phone. I am using it with Connectify and it works well. I love it!

    Dylan, South Africa. 20 December 2016

    It works really well, I recommend this!

    Jimmy, South Africa. 9 February 2017

    Great product and works out of the box on Windows 8.
    Thank you TakeAlot
