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.

Clinton, South Africa. 20 February 2017

Great little device that works as expected.

Sebastian, South Africa. 12 September 2017

Small, Convenient! But BEWARE ....

I have wireless Keyboard AND Mouse using the same 2.4GHz band. Causing often slower (or none) connections to the internet. I use my Mobile with the same router and get VERY fast downloads. The USB dongle is be clashing the the Keyboard and Mouse wireless transmitter. Just beware that the Wifi dongle is not very immune to outside interference. This is known issue that is well known on the internet.

Good luck!

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.

Gasant, South Africa. 28 December 2017

Works well on my Lenovo running on Windows 10.

Wesley, South Africa. 27 October 2016

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

Saddiq, South Africa. 2 October 2017

Works great! A little bit tricky to get devices connected.

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.

Thabo, South Africa. 11 September 2017

Great device, but I had to search the web for a working Win 10 driver for the devise.

Francois, South Africa. 19 January 2017

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

Lydon, South Africa. 7 September 2017

I'm about 7 meters from the router with a wall in the way, signal is pretty good. Drivers worked easily. Nice and small. So far so good.

Michael, South Africa. 25 June 2015

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

Dean, South Africa. 23 September 2017

Does the job.

Travis, South Africa. 29 July 2017

Your connection will drop like a fat kid on a see-saw. Bought two of these and tested and them on various different PC's and wireless networks, result is the same... Unreliability. Rather spend a bit more and invest in something that will give you a solid connection.

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

Lindsay, South Africa. 19 June 2017

Very useful

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.

Carmenita, South Africa. 2 March 2017

Works great.

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!

Henry, South Africa. 7 March 2017

Good product at a good price.

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.

Kruger, South Africa. 11 December 2017

Functions as expected. Good performance considering its size.

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.

Obakeng Martin, South Africa. 7 August 2017

Easy installation. Works like a charm. Hardly visible.

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

craig, South Africa. 9 November 2017

Great product. Does what it's supposed to.

Mohammed, South Africa. 18 September 2017

Terrible product, constant connectivity drops using Windows 10 x64. Drivers have been installed and updated. This could be an issue with my device.

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.

Dylan, South Africa. 7 November 2017

Great product, have no issues with speed and it is very small which makes it great to plug in and forget.

Anonymous, South Africa. 22 December 2017

Works great!

I saw a comment saying that the signal gets interfered with other wireless gadgets, luckily in my case it hasn't so far. I have it connected as well as two wireless mouses and a wireless keyboard no interference!

Siegfried, South Africa. 27 December 2017

Very good for the price would recommend to all

Print Wirelessly?, South Africa. 7 June 2016

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

Rudi, South Africa. 28 December 2017

Amazingly easy Plug&Play on Win10

Jorge, South Africa. 14 May 2017

I think I got a dud. Did not work as plug and play, after installing the driver and utility it still does not work. Tried on several PC's, device is detected and configured correctly, it connects to to the modem, but unable to connect to the internet. I'm returning this item. :(

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.

dumisani, South Africa. 23 February 2017

Works perfectly as describedon on specification.

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.

Duard, South Africa. 31 August 2017

Didnt work on Windows 10...

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!

Wessel, South Africa. 26 July 2017

Works very well! Easy to install!

Lareesan, South Africa. 29 November 2017

Works as advertised. Plugged it in, loaded driver from CD, connected to WiFi. Done.

Rajen, South Africa. 12 July 2017

Jimmy, South Africa. 9 February 2017

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

Anya, South Africa. 9 May 2017

Jacques, South Africa. 29 May 2017

Works well for connecting to my Samsung galaxy s6 and and as well to my router

Terrible, South Africa. 9 June 2017
