I used to pick up 1 or 2 other routers in my neighborhood, now I pick up 5 or 6. Also the signal strength is better in the spots in the house where I usually use it. Well worth $50.
MIMO cards have multiple antennas, so better range and signal strength, as well as speed should result.
I have the airgo mimo card AW has as an option in the m9700, and it's very stable, strong signal. It shows 54Mbps unless I'm using my mimo router over my LAN, then it bumps up to 108.
I also pick up routers up to three blocks away. I know this because one guy listed his address as his router name.
