Trendnet 300Mbps Dual Band Wireless N USB Adapter Review

The latest product that we’re reviewing for Trendnet is their Dual Band Wireless N Adapter. Geared toward the plug and play generation, this clever little device makes connecting to a wireless N network as easy as plugging the adapter into the machine and then installing the drivers from the CD. No tearing apart your machine and physically installing a card. It couldn’t be easier. Also anyone with a laptop will appreciate how small the adapter actually is. It’s the size of a large thumb drive, and very portable. Let’s take a closer look at this product. Click Read More to continue.

The packaging for the Trendnet 300Mbps Dual Band Wireless N USB Adapter features a large picture of the adapter itself and several facts about it. The coverage and speed of the wireless N adapter is displayed on the front as well as a graphic stating that the device uses Dual Band technology for a faster connection.

On the back of the package is where the real meat is at. Another smaller picture of the adapter is featured, with a graphic portraying various uses for the device. As always Trendnet rounds out the back of the package with a small section of related products. A nice feature if you wish to upgrade you wireless network and want to know which products will work best with your current hardware.

Once you open up the package, you’re greeted by a Spartan site. An installation CD, the adapter, and the USB dongle are all that is contained inside. This streamlining is one reason I like Trendnet products. Their installation CD installs the wireless drivers and interface, and that is it. There is no installation of useless programs that you’ll just delete later. Mean and lean, that’s the way to go.

The adapter is about 3 inches long and has a piano black finish. The people at Trendnet apparently like black, seeing as how most of their wireless products that I’ve reviewed tend be shiny black. Maybe this means they like Johnny Cash too. Anyway, this device is very small for a wireless product, something that should appeal to anyone who’s on the go.

Let’s take a look at the Specifications.
