5 out of 5 eggsfeels like I've got wired connection

Pros: Delivery very timely. Installation was a breeze.
I was concerned that it wouldn't fit because ot my graphics card being so close to it, but it was just a perfect fit.
Just enough space between this adapter and my graphics card.
Very fast, after verifying with a speed test, it gives me speeds that are equal to my wired connection at home when using Wi-Fi.
Bluetooth was recognized right away.
Currently using it with Windows 7 and with Ubuntu 14.04, works flawlessly with both.

Cons: The included antenna cable feels a bit too short. I currently have it attached to the side of my desktop (the antenna base being magnetic it's easy to attach in any metal surface). I wish I could have put it up at desk level but with the short cable it was an impossible reach.

Other Thoughts: Linux recognized it right away and all I had to do was enter the wi-fi connection's WPS code as expected but on Windows I had to use the included disk to install drivers before being able to use it. Not so much a con of this product but more of a con of Windows in general which at the time is behind Linux when it comes to drivers for hardware devices.

2 out of 5 eggseh

Pros: well the card looks nice, and is small
the wifi seems to work just fine

Cons: Bluetooth doesn't seem to have blue tooth
i installed the card and plugged in the usb header
installed every thing and still no bluetooth

Other Thoughts: now i haven't really looked to far in to where the blue tooth is yet
but then again i shouldn't have to. with a good card
you should just have to install it & the drivers to make it work.

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding Product

Pros: -Incredible signal speed
-Automatic driver install, plug and play once it's in the PCI slot
-WiFi starts at the same speed as windows, no waiting for connectivity
-Bluetooth is great for things like dualshock 4
-Small, magnetic antenna that sticks to your case for a low profile without clutter
-Price!

Cons: -Needs to be installed on the motherboard, so get ready to open your case
-Exterior antenna isn't COMPLETELY streamlined or invisible

Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace a WiFi USB dongle and a Bluetooth USB dongle. Now my box is streamlined again, and I'm happy. Speeds are nuts, they blow the USB WiFi out of the water - games download off of Steam at 7 Mbps, up from 2-3 on USB. A cinch to install - there is a disc included but I never used it. Just pop it in the PCI slot, start your PC, and then connect to your network.

Great product if you're looking to cut cords and free some USB slots.

1 out of 5 eggsThis is only 802.11ac, Newegg this is on you

Pros: Out of all of the components I've purchased with Newegg for my build, none of them were DoA, and this wifi card appears to be working fine. Which in all regards would merit a much higher rating if it weren't for the cons.

Cons: The webpage states that this model is 802.11d and 802.11e, when it patently does not. This model goes as high as 802.11ac, so either the page should be updated to reflect that or they sent me the wrong product.

As a friend told me, the more letters you get behind the '802.11' part the better, and this page advertises a lot more letters than the actual product offers.

5 out of 5 eggsExceptional Performance and Value

Pros: The 2.4 GHz / 5 GHz / BT combo is great to keep things simple

Wired antenna means you can place it where it gets the best reception

Magnetic antenna base makes it easy to mount where you need it

PCIe adapter card means I can swap out the mini PCIe to upgrade in the future

I got the rev 2.0 with the extra internal USB port

Cons: Bluetooth module needs an internal USB 2.0 header on the motherboard. Cable for this is a little short, though I had no problems.

Other Thoughts: A lot of people complaining about wireless networking components don't seem to actually know much about them. Wireless can be very finicky if you don't know what you're doing. 5 GHz is great for the extra speed, but it doesn't cover as well as 2.4 GHz does. Also, check what channels your neighbors use around you and set yours to one that allows the least interference. Even doing this, without a quality router, your network speed will be dismal.

As for this device, I don't have a single complaint about it in my personal case. I get sustained speeds of 60 Mbps which translates to 7 MB/s ( as in megaBYTES! ) I downloaded the entire Tomb Raider GotY over Steam ( over 10 GB, ) in under 30 minutes. This is also a floor down from the router and the other side of the house.

As others say, you do need to connect the card to an open USB 2.0 header on your motherboard if you want the Bluetooth module to work. The cable they give for this isn't terribly long. Most people will use the top PCIe x1 slot above their graphics card, where the cable might not reach. Instead, look at the bottom PCIe slot. Even if it's a x16 length slot, chances are it's wired for four lanes or less and runs off your motherboard chipset, not your CPU, so it won't steal bandwidth from your graphics card. It's also much closer to your USB headers. If you're worried about losing the header, I got the 2.0 revision card which has another USB port on it. You can use this to connect a USB device inside your case, like maybe a wireless mouse or something.

the key to this card is the antenna. A lot of wireless adapter cards have fixed antennas that sit in the back of your case, where reception may not be very good. This external antenna can be moved wherever it gets the best signal. The magnetic base makes it easy to mount to the top or side of your case without worry it can get knocked off. The antenna also pivots on the base.

Finally, this is technically a mini PCIe card in a PCIe adapter. That means you can keep the adapter and just replace the mini card when you want to upgrade wireless protocols. Considering good mini PCIe cards only run about $20, that's not a bad way to go.

1 out of 5 eggsTypical s h i t t y driver bundling

Pros: Interesting idea - in theory

Cons: Drivers are nerfed to preclude installation in server versions of windows.

As far as I can tell, this is just because of the sloppy and pointless driver install utils.

Nothing on the box indicates it won't work on server - in fact, system requirements aren't listed at all other than Win7/8 required for WiDi

Other Thoughts: Might work ok on win 7/8 - my desktops are server 08

5 out of 5 eggsGreat speeds..Good wifi/bt card

Pros: Easy install into PCI slot. Connect the BT cable to one of the free USB connectors on your motherboard. Excellent speeds when connected to my N66U Router.

Cons: None as of now.

Other Thoughts: The antenna cable is a bit short.
