I have Netgear WG-302 and its not as good for NYC blocks, you see the
interference here is soooo big so that the only way to survive is to
suppress other devices by output power. With netgear I'm getting 1.5 block
coverage outdoor (typical bloc 300 feet) where senao gives me 3.5 block
range. And yes all my senos burning out within 1 year.

Price performance may be good, but quality control is junk.  They burn 
out fast, and there was a run where all of them burned within 3 months. 
  We do RMAs in batches of 20 to cut down in shipping costs.  Of the 
ECB-3220 line I would say we have RMAed about 70% of the ones we 
purchased. The Netgear WG-302, on the other hand, has had no failures in 
the past 3 years.  Range is almost as good with 1/4 of the power.  At a 
greater cost.
