Same Realtek RTL8188cus chipset is used in many similar items, such as £2.54 delivered ex-UK http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/311572254805 but obviously without the legendary and tax-minimising Amazon customer service.

I dunno like -- tax minimising? I just choose 'not of expected quality' and I get a free return on everything I don't like, no questions asked. Feels alright.

Indeed, and very, very few people voluntarily pay any more tax than they are legally obliged to. As things stand Amazon complies with EU tax law that permits them to operate as a Luxembourg based corporation, a situation that may change once Brexit happens.

I bought one of these very recently when I needed a dongle for my Linux computer. Advantage - it works out of the box for Linux. My computer recognised it immediately. Disadvantage - it's completely useless. Despite the fact that my computer was a mere one room above the router, I was getting max speeds of 6Mbps. Most of the time it was much lower. Even simply browsing websites was a pain. Eventually, I decided to try again with previous Netgear dongle and make it work. Thankfully I succeeded and now enjoy 50Mbps speed. Waste of £8.

We all pay for it one way or another. Do we not?

These are good in a pinch. My ethernet cable was flaking out the other week and it functioned when i got it placed correctly, was very temperamental before that. Definitely consider something a bit more robust if you can afford it though.

DO NOT BUY

I bought this as a backup in case i was forced to use wifi on a trip and knew my only options would be ripoff retail whilst away. I was correct and cat5 cable wasn't an option so opened my shiny edimax dongle, only to find that despite being super easy to install, it is also super unstable, as others have said, I placed it in the same room as the access point and it still couldn't maintain a constant connection. Ended up buying retail replacement for £30

Edimax wifi dongle = useless

I guess it depends what you are using it for, I was mainly frustrated by it when playing a game online and it would drop out at least once an hour, before reconnecting. This could happen a few times an hour though
