    Conclusion

    This kit, affectionately called the DWL-920, is especially for desktop computers, a kit for laptops (DWL-905) is also available. Both share the same AP but the laptop kit has 2 PC Cards instead of USB devices. At $499.95, it's not a cheap toy to play with but more of a serious investment for the home network that nearly future-proof. With the USB 2.0 standard backwards compatible with USB 1.0 and 802.11 standards being backwards compatible too, this system will last you for a while. This kit makes a great choice for people who don't wish to run CAT5 cables all over the place and for people who prefer the ease of installation simplicity of a wireless network. As for my opinion, I think this is one of the greatest, if not he greatest, products I have ever reviewed. It's ease of installation combined with performance that is top notch and true plug and play capabilities made this a sure winner of our coveted Editor's Choice Award with a perfect 10 SystemLogistics. The benefits of the kit far outweigh the costs.
