This is OT, but can you post a list of those that you find not terrible?

I’ve been doing some work with co-working spaces and would kill for a high quality USB dongle I could recommend when a client has some built-in nonsense that’s too old or barfs on 802.11k or other new stuff that it shouldn’t.

The reviews for all USB wifi are awful, and our experience with walk-in folks using various dongles you find at Best Buy have been universally bad (could just be windows drivers I guess?).
