3* fast USB and 11ac speeds
Reviewed by Anonymous on 29/06/2013
if noticed that vertically all generic 11AC USB addon's to date state up to 800+ speeds without making it clear that Only 11AC adaptors with a USB3 interface can actually reach these speeds. I'd like to see BT provide a clear and bold this product is using a USB2. or USB3 interface and make it clear you will only get up to two times the speed on average from the slower USB2 interface 11ac add on cards please, so people are not falsely lead to buy a slower USB2 device over the far faster USB3 device without an informed choice as to what your actually buying..... also it would be a very good thing today if BT staff could also test weather these USB2/USB3 products work with android devices, especially any new USB hubs/USB Ethernet/ and of these wireless USB devices and add that to the general description as its hard to find comparable hardware for any android tablets etc today...thanks for reading ..
