CONCLUSIONS AND AFTERTHOUGHTS



Patriot has a well rounded product with the PCBOWAU2-N USB wireless adapter. If you're using their PBO media player, this is the quickest and easiest way to stream content wirelessly to or from that unit. It is fast, reliable and a cinch to set up. The device works just as well with a desktop or laptop PC and is compatible with all flavors of Windows as well as Linux kernel v 2.6.6 and up. The best feature of this adapter though is the price - at $16 US, there's no reason not to pick one up.


The wireless signal was consistently strong throughout testing - I got a perfect signal (5 bars) all around the house when using it with my netbook, which is pretty impressive for such a small device. Streaming videos on the web was smooth and reliable every time.


Driver installation on a PC is quick and straightforward, although I noticed that the WLAN configuration utility opens every time the PC starts up. That combined with nowhere to store the cap make for a couple of small annoyances, but that should not deter you from buying this product. It offers solid performance at a great price.


Pros:


- Easy setup on PBO or a PC
- Strong, reliable wireless signal
- Compatible with Windows and Linux
- Good value


Cons:


- Cap does not attach to adapter
- Does not fit on PBO's rear USB port
