Reviews on them are mixed. Many recommend to stay away from them since they are still non finalized revisions and there is no guarantee the final revision will keep supporting current N devices. There is also the issue with having non N devices in the vicinity. However, some are cheap enough nowadays that you can get one now and keep it for a year or two until the final revisions are released.
They are fast and provide a good signal strength, but a cheap SuperG device will do just as fine.
Yup. Basically, each company guessed at what the final N specs will be... and released their own Draft N products. Since they guess, it does not mean a firmware update will make them full N compatible. Since each company guessed different, each Draft N will work only with the same company's components. You want full N since that will allow complete interoperability in the future.
