3 out of 5 eggsNot sure if new or refurbished

Pros: - Wireless N and Bluetooth in one card
- Fit perfectly in my mPCIe port on my m-ITX motherboard
- Bluetooth works perfect

Cons: - Not sure if it is new or refurbished, card packaging was not OEM, no instructions, drivers, etc, literally shipped in a huge letter size bubble mailer with just the card inside of a plastic case that looked like it was for SoDIMM memory, except had an Intel logo stamped on it and a label that had been ripped off.
- Card tends to drop signal even with 2 high gain antennas, but I believe it is my configuration. Max link speed I've gotten is 118Mbps and fluctuates between 48-92Mbps.
- If not using Windows 8, this card may not be plug-n-play. Need to go to Intel's website and download the base drivers.
- Requires 2 antennas of good quality. You cannot simply use one antenna lead or you will get a very weak signal and most likely lose connectivity.

Other Thoughts: I used this for a prototype computer. My original plan was to do an internal wireless receiver, but the case I chose caused too much interference with the internal dongle I installed. When the lid was closed, it would drop my signal to 1 bar. I found this card was the cheapest and didn't utilize draft-N so I purchased it and purchased to high gain antennas that I had to modify the case to mount. Overall, it works as designed, so I can't complain much on this card.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as promissed

Pros: It works exactly as promised, running in an Intel Atom dual-core all-in-one running Ubuntu. Can beat the price at under $20 either!

Cons: None to speak of.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: absolutely great price for the features! read my "other thoughts" for more info, as these are pros but are not on the web page for newegg.

Cons: the chip in the picture is not the one that the page is selling! it does have the features as advertised, just dont be surprised when you get a different wireless card

Other Thoughts: the card actually does 300 Mbps not 54 like the advert says. the card is slightly different, it only has 2 antennas not 3. (scared me not seeing the same card that was in the pictures) i did a little research though it is the one for the advertisement. also once ive gotten the chip up and running ill update this review. the card seemed like such a good deal, and because it uses mini pci-e i needed to buy an adapter for it.

3 out of 5 eggsSince NewEgg Didn't

Pros: Probably a nice little component for the money

Cons: Didn't get to use it

Other Thoughts: This is the Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230, model 2230BNHMW. The form factor is PCI Express x4.

I didn't pay enough attention to the picture and bought the wrong form factor for my motherboard. Currently RMAing, hopefully NewEgg is still as good with that as they were a decade ago.
