I have several WiFi adapters for testing purpose (different chipsets and of course, different drivers).  Most of all I was impressed by mt76 chipset family and driver followed by rt2800usb chipset family and driver. Both are very sensitive and working "out of the box". This devices are cheap and the tx power is more than enough. Keep in mind: we are packet oriented and don't need high tx power devices. Instead of running high tx power, it is a good idea to use high gain directed antennas, because they gain in both directions (rx and tx). In other words:
It's almost always better to achieve gain with the antenna instead of increasing the transmitter power.
It is a fairytale that increasing tx power will lead to more results!
"A power level of 0 dBm corresponds to a power of 1 milliwatt. A 10 dB increase in level is equivalent to a 10-fold increase in power. A 3 dB increase in level is approximately equivalent to doubling the power, which means that a level of 3 dBm corresponds roughly to a power of 2 mW. Similarly, for each 3 dB decrease in level, the power is reduced by about one half, making −3 dBm correspond to a power of about 0.5 mW. "

A good antenna is the best hf amplifier:

Increasing tx power will make the signal crappy! A spectrum analyzer will show you this.

My experience with the Wifistation Planar Ubiquiti with Atheros 9271 chip has been the best antenna I've tried; The reach capacity is superior to any other I have used (Ralink, Realtek, among others). Doing a wardriving comparing the Wifistation with any other, has doubled the amount of hashes captured.

That is my experience.
