Just beware of fakes. I got one off ebay a while back that looked legit from the pics but a fake arrived. Paypal hoop jumping ensued.

There are websites out there that show it, basically it came down to one of the stickers on the one that I got.

Its higher power than a normal wifi adapter but certainly not anywhere near 1 watt.

I've got what I understand to be a real version. Had it for a little while. How much are you prepared to pay?
