Both are pretty good products and overall we were left thinking quite good things about TRENDnet and what they had sent us to review. Today we have another review of a TRENDnet product and this time it is the TEW-624UB (version B1.0R to be exact) 300Mbps Wireless N USB 2.0 adapter. It is designed to add wireless capability to your Windows 2000, XP or Vista desktop PC or notebook or as an upgrade over a slower wireless connection such as 802.11b.
It claims very big things on its box packaging such as 12x the speed and 4x the coverage of a standard Wireless G network as well as allowing you to connect wirelessly with supercharged speed, range and reliability. Naturally, they threw the 300Mbps speed figure around quite a bit, but of course with all Wireless N networking equipment, we don't expect to come anywhere close to this speed in our tests here today. But you never know, maybe we'll get a surprise one day - that's a big maybe, though.
After we show you the affordable USB 2.0 adapter and what comes inside the package, we'll compare it to a new Hypersonic notebook with a built-in Intel adapter set to run in Wireless G mode for comparison.
Which will take the prize for fastest speed? Is it any good? Can it really offer a 300Mbit connection for just over $50 USD retail? Read on and find out in just a bit! The answer may not be as simple as you think.
