I rescently got a cupon through the post offering me the new Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter for 30 if I trade in my old one. I looked up the specs of the new one, and the real only addition is better streaming from your PC however it does say that it will make online connection 7x better.

I was just wondering if anyone has one and if they do what do you think of it, and is it worth me paying 30 for?

I think it only really benefits if you have a internet connection of 50Mb or higher. But Also it has a larger range, so you're less likely to get cut off or lag.

as far as i know the only difference is the signal. the old wireless adapter sent G signals and this one sends the new N signal for better coverage but unless you live in a 10,000 square foot house then it you will notice no difference in this adapter.

Yeah if you are lucky enough to be kicking the kind of bandwidth this baby runs on then go for it, if not then there is no point really tbh.

Well im only running on a 1.5mb connection which is lame, so I guess I'll just be wasting my money with this new adapter.

WOW, that is VERY VERY slow, especially if you are running with a current wireless router. no offense but im guessing if you had host you would ruin the game, i know that sounded harsh but id invest in a better connection for yourself and for the gaming community.
