5 out of 5 eggsWorks very well

Pros: This wireless adapter works amazingly well. My wireless connection no longer is spotty after I updated to this card from the Rosewill RNX-N250PC2 which couldn't even stream simple youtube videos.
Now I can play my games online while my wife streams Netflix/Hulu/Prime without any issues at all (and we live in a rural area with very slow speeds compared to the cities). I will definitely be following more TRENDnet products after this simple upgrade.

Cons: One small problem. I am running Windows 7 x64, and even though the adapter worked flawlessly when hooked-up and the driver was installed via their cd, the driver upgrade on TRENDnets' website wouldn't run. It gave me an error saying that the software is incompatible with my versions of Windows, which stated it was Windows XP. No big deal. I simply uninstalled the driver and reinstalled the driver off of the CD that came with the wireless adapter and everything was as good as new.

Other Thoughts: Windows 7 64-bit, 8gig DDR3, ASUS HD7850, MSI Z77A-G43, NZXT HALE82, ASUS Xonar DG 5.1, Cooler Master HAF 912.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Coming from a history of solely wired desktops, this adapter is better than expected. My desktop performs the same as when it was wired with Cat5e.
4/5 signal strength going through one floor of my 1,050 sqft home. Owned for almost 2 weeks and has not dropped a connection once (to my knowledge).

Cons: None.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks okay, slow shipping.

Pros: Compact. Easy to install and had no trouble finding and connecting to my wifi. So far, hasn't dropped the connection at all.

Cons: Usually has only 3-4 bars of signal where my laptop's built adapter was always 5 bars at the same place. Both were 5ghz.

Shipping was slow. It took 3 times longer to arrive then the rest of my parts ordered on the same day.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Price, Good Card

Pros: Super Small - Includes half-height bracket.

Cons: The antennae, when tightened would not rotate freely. Every time I tried to move them, they would back off a little bit. Didn't keep the card from working, just felt like it shouldn't do that.

5 out of 5 eggsThree bars but no impact on speed.

Pros: Not much I can say other than it does what it is supposed to do. I live in the wifi dead zone in my house and can only get 3 bars but it doesn't seem to impact speed. My laptop can get max 750kbps in my room but this card in my new build gets up to 3mbps. Would buy again.

Cons: Sits a little loose in the PCX slot but once it's properly mounted to the case it doesn't seem to be an issue.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works with Linux Mint out of the box, no need to install drivers. Doesn't drop the connection like my previous USB adapter.

Cons: Signal strength is only about 50%, but the computer is located in a basement while the router is on the 2nd floor.

1 out of 5 eggsNot great

Pros: Easy to install.

Cons: Windows could not find the driver, had to manually navigate to driver. This is quite slower than my Belkin Wireless USB stick adapter and it picks up a weaker signal and it has antennas!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works well on the commercial WIFI setup in the building where I live that has a commercial grade WIFI router and at least 12 WIFI relays. This unit works well with Windows, Linux, and Unix. Comes with both low profile bracket that works well with my new system and regular profile bracket that worked well with my old system.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: none

4 out of 5 eggsGood card

Pros: Easy to install
Low price

Cons: Didn't solve my connectivity issues in Win8.1.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to try to resolve an issue I am having with my Win8.1 wireless connectivity. It does have Win8.1 drivers available on the support website. It did not improve my continual drop out issue. Works great for WinVista, old hard drive OS. Tried it to make sure the card wasn't the problem. Just Win8.1 problem.
