The USB Novel 600A1 AU is a small wireless dual band 802.11ac WiFi-5 USB adapter.
*This unit was sent to me to review with my honest opinion and results below.
Dual Band 2.4Hhz/5Ghz
Chipset: Realtek RTL8811AU
Compatibility: Windows 7, 8, 10 MAC OS 10.6-10.14
Plugging the adapter into a Win 10 Laptop the adapter was automatically found with no need to install drivers from the CD.
It uses the Realtek RTL8811AU Chipset.
WiFi Speed Test 2.4GHz Band
All speed test were done to a Netgear Nighthawk 802.11ac router 10 feet away past a wall.
WiFi Speed Test 5GHz Band
Doing the same test again with Speedtest.net on the 5GHz band it gave the results of 204Mbps Download, and 21Mbps Upload.
This was some very good results for such a small sized unit.

The USB Novel 600A1 AU USB WiFi adapter is a good low-cost unit that would be a good fit for a laptop.
While it will also work with a desktop PC there are bigger units with better range for a desktop.
The speeds were good with 204Mbps Download in the 5.8Ghz band.
While most users will use the 5GHz band it is also nice to have the 2.4GHz band available for legacy devices and getting a better signal at a distance.
The 5GHz band with 802.11ac has faster transfer speeds but the older 2.4GHz band still works better transmitting from farther away.
I am still testing the unit so far with good results and will update if anything changes.
As always be sure to read the reviews on Amazon, forums, or elsewhere to be sure a unit is a good fit for you.
