1 out of 5 eggsnot long term reliable

Pros: worked great when I first got it.

Cons: died, stopped working after 9 months, shows 0 bars signal out of 5 bars and shows no SSID's detected, when many SSID's exists in a detectable range

Other Thoughts: Not worth the time , trouble and expense of getting a RMA from TRENDnet and paying shipping there and back, even though the unit is under warranty.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks in Linux

Pros: Detected during Ubuntu 14.04 Install.
Small.
Good Signal from other side of house.
Fairly inexpensive.

Cons: No Linux management software.

Other Thoughts: I was able to install this in my PC and install Ubuntu easily. It detected and was configurable immediately which allowed me to install updates during install. Only thing I don't like is that without installing 3rd party software I have no access to advanced features like switching 2.4 to 5 Ghz.

5 out of 5 eggsVery impressed

Pros: It's very small. Dual band is nice. What I'm most impressed with is speed. Now, my computer is very close to my router, but I'm impressed with the speed. I've been connected to my router with an ethernet cable for a week or so now because I removed my last wireless card. Upon installing this card, I played around with speedtest.net's benchmarks to see if there is a difference between before and after: the only difference is in my ping. 1ms more. Everything else is exactly the same. Now, I know this is probably an ineffective way to test it, but it makes me happy. Online gaming feels exactly the same to me as when it was connected directly to the router.

Cons: Can't think of any. I suppose wireless ac would be even nicer for future proofing, but unless I get Google Fiber I won't be even getting close to the 300mb/s limit. Either way, if I REALLY wanted that I'd have to pay more - which I don't care for.

Other Thoughts: Definitely worth the price. This is a solid card, very effective.

Using Win7 64-bit.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks just fine

Pros: Connects me to the internet when I don't want to use wired.

Cons: Speed isn't as high as Ethernet, but that's to be expected.

5 out of 5 eggsExactly what I needed

Pros: Works great, good speed, good range- I get 3-4 bars consistently through 3 walls about 25 ft away

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If you just need basic wireless N connectivity in your house, this is perfect. Nothing fancy, but I didn't need fancy.

4 out of 5 eggsA Little Play but Works Well

Pros: Works well and the drivers and utility, that are included in the box on a disc, are pleasant to look at and work with.
Dual band for fast streaming if you have a dual band router.

Cons: On my motherboard (Asus H97 Plus) and case (Corsair Vengeance C70) the card has a good bit of a wiggle trying to seat it in the mobo and IO shield but that's only a nit-pick.

5 out of 5 eggsGood dual band wifi card

Pros: Easy install
Strong Signal (using 5GHz)
Came with two antennae
Small

Cons: It was packaged in a little clear plastic baggy instead of the usual anti-static bag, not sure why.

Other Thoughts: Using WIndows 7 64 Bit with v1.02 drivers, I have had no problems.

3 out of 5 eggsI want to return it.

Pros: It's small and easily installed

Cons: I switched from an old Belkin pre-N to this and it's just 20 feet from my router, but even with a large extended antenna, I have the slowest internet in my house with this card. All of my much older cards are faster. I will replace this when I'm sure something works better. Only 3 bars with extended antennas, and slow, but never dropped the signal.

Other Thoughts: The slowest card I own and my others are old and out-dated? I would not buy this again.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Very noticeable improvement from my older Asus PCI network adapter (something around 54mb/s).
Now I'm taking full advantage of my bandwidth.
Finally getting full quality bars on Netflix and Prime.

Cons: None yet, but have only had it for a few days. Will add comment if I have problems.

Other Thoughts: They get fancier but I don't need more than this for now.

1 out of 5 eggsNo Vista 64 Support

Pros: None

Cons: Does not support 64 bit Vista operating systems despite 64 bit support being clearly indicated in the specs overview, as well as numerous other reputable tech websites. I bought two and can't use either as a result. Very disappointed, I will be avoiding this brand in the future.

Other Thoughts: None
