Trendnet has come a long way since the early days of super budget hardware. In fact, they have innovated a couple of the smallest 802.11n consumer products that we've seen - this adapter and the TEW-654TR Travel Router. Both of these products perform respectably and are priced very aggressively. I found the TEW-649UB online for as little as $20 - making it one of the cheapest and definitely the smallest 802.11n adapters on the market. . .
