I used to work for a system builder company that bundled these with gaming PCs so they could claim they were 'WiFi enabled.' I can categorically say AVOID THESE GOD AWFUL USB WIFI DONGLES LIKE THE PLAGUE. We had to field so many calls for these being broken or faulty, and the ones that do work have such a poor connection that you will barely be able to stream 240p youtube when not in the same room as the router.

They'd come as a job lot for pennies, I'd even say £7 is a decent markup. Some of them would literally fall to pieces when you insert them for the first time as if they'd been soldered together with fairy dust.

Don't even get me started on trying to game with them, ping will spike wildly and disconnects are frequent. There is no world in which you are not better off spending a bit more on a PCI-e WiFi card or just getting Powerline adapters to ditch WiFi altogether.

The only possible use case for these is a temporary measure if say your internet goes down and you need to hotspot your phone to your PC to find out wtf is going on.

I cannot stress enough how much you should NOT buy one of these. £7 is cheap, but unless your time is worthless, the time you'll spend trying to figure out why the F it is not working and struggling to position your machine / router so that you can get enough of a signal to load a website will make it vastly more expensive than just spending an extra tenner or so on something that works.

Like a lot of the reviews state these do not work. I can confirm this as I picked one up a while back. Does not run at 300mb and constantly disconnects.
One instance I can think of is sticking it in a PC upstairs(a PC without wifi)to avoid cable from your router heading up there.
Would this be any good to work with a DVR CCTV box to connect to the net

No.#, try a wifi bridge or wifi extender that has an ethernet port.

It won't run at 300Mbps as it operates at 2.4GHz. Just misleading marketing crap

Sometimes hot UK deals is not about buying cheap stuff you don't need. It's about not buying cheap stuff you kinda do need...
