5 out of 5 eggsOver-engineered and silly

Pros: There are certain applications where this type of a riser/extender card is required and beneficial. For those applications, this card works great! It is a high-quality card, and the construction is solid.

Cons: Will NOT fit in many laptops or netbooks due to clearance issues. It increases the HEIGHT of the card, as well as the length.

Other Thoughts: Most people reading this will be better off using something called a PCIe Mini Card Bracket. Search the web for a picture of one of those and you'll see why.

3 out of 5 eggsIt works ,but...

Pros: The speed is fantastic.

Cons: My new 6300n technically fit the adapter but the mounting posts were too big and the electrical pins were too loose. So its in there, but barely hanging on. No instructions were included so I'm still not sure I/m getting full speed but it is much faster than my old wifi.

5 out of 5 eggsgood for external displays

Pros: will allow you to connect a pcisxpress to pciexpress 16 adapter and then you can add a gpu of your choice.

Cons: I dont know how well your laptop can handle the card and you will need a mini pci express or a pciexpress extension cable

Other Thoughts: used for NAS hosting on my network and with my dell laditude e6400 it will get 1gp/s transfer rate
