Well, Senao has a number of resellers around the world, and if you check out the SeattleWireless pages at <http://www.seattlewireless.net/index.cgi/HardwareComparison>, you will note that they have some of the best sensitivity and power of any cards on the market. They usually are very inexpensive (don't pay too much attention to the prices at SeattleWireless, because you can usually get them for much less), and may be the least expensive cards you can find.

So, combine low price with high sensitivity and high power, and they come out as being the best cards available on a price/performance ratio -- by far.
