Since launching earlier this year, the Alfa AWUS1900 has turned heads with its unique look, and its unique place in the market as a low cost USB AC1900 upgrade.

Alfa AWUS1900 File Transfer Test

We transferred a 1.69 GB file to a network storage devices both with Alfa AWUS1900 and with a conventional 802.11n Wi-Fi card inside our laptop using a Tenda AC1900 router. With the laptop card, it took 350 seconds. The same transfer with the Alfa AWUS1900 took just 70 seconds. That went 5 times faster with the Alfa AWUS1900.
