Pay a bit extra and go for a 300Mbps...

Completey agree - I have the 300Mbs version - £8-49 delivered from the 7Dayshop. This never fails me and have used it to get wireless on many computers.

only £2 extra on amazon for 300Mbps version.

does anyone know if this works on a Sony Bravia TV KDL EX713 model?

This shares a problem with many usb wireless adapters, if being used in a warm environment, with low signal, it will overheat and stop working after a short time

I would highly recommend using an internal card where possible, which will be cooled by internal fans, or using a wired or powerline connection

A friend of mine has a laptop that the wireless connection is not very good, would this improve matters?

My sister has/had the same problem on her nettop, so got a wireless n dongle as above from amazon about 6 months ago, now she has no problems/drop outs and has a 3 or 4 bar signal even when 3 rooms away and 2 floors down... agree that paying the extra £2 for wireless n 300mbps is worth it.

Do they come with a driver etc for the OS?

Doesn't need one generally, most OS are able to get drivers plug and play nowadays.

Ah, it was probably just because mine was inside (poor air circulation), but mainly extremely low signal, if I move any adapter/ device half a meter away it can't even find the network

If it's that bad then you are either very far away from your router, or something else is interfering with the router signal, maybe even your neighbours wifi, try switching the channel that your router is using to see if it makes a difference.
