    Currently I am looking at either building or buying a Yagi antenna. On Amazon I came across these three Yagi Antenna:

    http://www.amazon.com/Brands-Wirele...s&ie=UTF8&qid=1382034077&sr=1-3&keywords=yagi

    http://www.amazon.com/Browning-2-4-...s&ie=UTF8&qid=1382034077&sr=1-1&keywords=yagi

    and

    http://www.amazon.com/USB-Yagi-dire...s&ie=UTF8&qid=1382034077&sr=1-2&keywords=yagi

    The first two are about $20 while the last link I posted is for a Yagi antenna that costs $100.

    Can someone explain to me the differences between these antennas and why there is such a price discrepancy?

    Also I would appreciate it if anyone that has any experience in purchasing/building a Yagi antenna give me some inputs on their experience.

    TIA

    okay the different in price is because the last one have a built in usb adapter which is not recommended because you will stick to the adapter that is already installed you can see in the links you put . but if you buy the first one you will be able to connect to any usb adapter or access point you want to ...
    plus the first link antenna is the common antenna used so its guaranteed and its powerful and i talking about it cause i have one and its not worth building one cause its very cheep ...>>>20$ +shipping mostly 30$ and you can buy alfa adapter alfa adapter 20$ and you will thank me latter

    Hi,

    Thanks for the quick response.

    I already have the Alfa wireless Awus036H 5 dbi antenna as well as the 7 dbi flat panel. I will go ahead and buy the Yagi antenna you linked to and I will attach it to my Alfa adapter.

    Glad you answered my post you saved me a lot of money!

    I'm curious what was this linked to:

    http://www.amazon.com/Brands-Wirele...034077&amp;sr=1-3&amp;keywords=yagi</a>&nbsp

    It wouldn't let me get on the page.
