NewEgg has it for $17 with free shipping in today's email.

Amazon and NewEgg reviews are strongly positive with a few dissents.

Anyone have Win7 experience with this?

Newegg has sold out already on that one, looks ok to me but sometimes you get what you pay for. The Dlink ones have better reviews but of course they cost more. I like the Dlink DWA-140>.

Thanks man. I agree that normally "you get what you pay for" which is why I posted. Didn't want to get any (New)egg on my face.

But every now and then I score more than I paid, like a Kingston 8gb Data Traveler for $17 which I've carried all my tools on in my pocket for 3 years now.

Usually it's from buy.com and Newegg, dropped in my emailbox every day.

Looks like everyone jumped on that Asus adaptor because they showed it as sold-out right after you posted. It's funny how the some reviews are great and other just say don't buy it LOL!
I still need a good wireless network adaptor for my garage computer but I'll probably go Dlink because of my router.

I could really use a USB flash drive for putting all the computer fixing software on it like you just mentioned. That would really come in handy and easier than carrying around a stupid cd.

Yeah I never go anywhere without my Kingston Data Traveler. It has Win7 files in a folder, but whenever I want to boot the installer I only have to spill them out into the root as it's written to install.

Then there's XP, partitioning, cleanup/defrag tools, Rescue ISO, Works, several Offices, AV's, bootable HD diag and memtest, etc. etc.

Everything is backed up in my Downloads folder. I thought I had lost it so bought another one last month for $15 on Buy.com, but it turned up so that's now a backup, too.

The prices inch downwards, showing up a little cheaper every couple months on buy.com or Newegg. Get their emails to not miss out.
