Massive ripoff. There is no magic with antennas. Your gains and designs are based on math that is freely available.

Other than the stylized plastic casing that has no impact on performance, you are getting the same performance as a common $5 higher gain antenna.

Anyway, we will have to wait for them to send out a review sample to that someone at tomshardware, or possibly Tim Higgins can take it apart and show the design (likely a lower cylindrical base, and a solid core copper wire top half).
