3 out of 5 eggsGood card, Bad support

Pros: -Strong connection
-Good speeds
-Works on most laptops
-Works on Windows 7™

Cons: -Not plug and play
-Worst driver installation ever
-does not come with drivers "I.E a installing disk"
-Very bad customer support
-Very hard just to find the drivers needed for this card

Other Thoughts: The card works great and never cuts out on me. But the fact that it came to me in a tint little plastic case with nothing else but the card itself makes me wonder is this refurbished. I hate the fact it did not come with any driver installing at all or even a piece of paper that had its specs on it. And since it is not plug and play on windows 7 i had to manually find the drivers for it. IT only took me 10 min but it was hell just to find the one that worked on Intel's horrid website. good card but i would not recommend it because it was so hard just to find a diver for it.

1 out of 5 eggsCaution advised

Pros: Seemed to me that this was a really easy way to upgrade my laptops to get dual band and higher speeds. The specs are impressive and the physical install is easy, drivers are easily obtained from Intel download site.

Cons: Unfortunately, my laptops are all HP and HP uses a whitelist in BIOS to determine if the hardware is acceptable. Unfortunately these do not pass their checks so I get a BIOS error 104 Unsupported WiFi adapter message at power on. I tried it in 3 different HP machines without success. It takes a BIOS Hack to remove the whitelist to get them to work. Once working they are great but this is not for amateurs to attempt. you could brick your laptop if not careful.

Other Thoughts: I do not understand HP doing this to their BIOS. The slot is a standard PCIE mini slot so why not allow people to upgrade? I installed it in a Sony and it worked great, I have been told it will work in some Dell and ASUS laptops as well.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Product

Pros: Installed in Intel NUC D34010WYKH using modified Windows 7 image and PLEX Home Theater. Wireless and Bluetooth have been working solid since drivers were installed.

Cons: I believe this was more of a NUC issue but they had the two cables backwards so Bluetooth would not work until I switched them. So if your Bluetooth is is showing up as an unidentified device in Windows 7 try swapping the +/- cables on the card.

3 out of 5 eggsIt works, but not without its issues.

Pros: It was inexpensive for an 802.11n card with bluetooth bundled in.

Bluetooth works great.

Cons: As someone else mentioned, the wireless cuts out from time to time when connected to 802.11n networks (it happened 3 times to me in half an hour). It works fine on 802.11g networks without cutouts.

Causes my Latitude D620 to blue screen with a memory parity error every time I put it to sleep. Laptop will go in and out of sleep mode just fine without the card installed.

Other Thoughts: The issue with the wireless dropping is a known issue with these cards (just google search 'intel wireless 7260 issues'. If I only had that issue, I would've kept using it. But since it also won't let my laptop go to sleep, I'm going to go look for another wireless card.

5 out of 5 eggs50% of Dell price

Pros: Works as it should.
Half the price of the Dell part and it's faster.
Speedy delivery.
Easy installation.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Girlfriend's laptop lost its ability to connect to the wireless router. This brought it back cheaply and easily--remove seven 00 Phillips screws (+ the ones holding the card in place) and download the driver.

1 out of 5 eggswow, surprised at intel

Pros: good range

Cons: wifi sometimes cuts out. i dont have this problem on any other device.

Other Thoughts: bluetooth stopped working after around 6 months. tried to contact intel thru their online chat service and it didnt even put me in the queue it simply said they are all unavailable.

i use a bose soundlink mini to watch netflix because the speakers on my laptop are abysmal. so bluetooth is a must.

1 out of 5 eggsMissing bracket needed for Galileo

Pros: Nice and small.
Looks good while I am waiting for bracket to be delivered.

Cons: I got this as part of a bundle with an Intel Galileo development board. That board has a mini PCI-E slot that can be used with a wireless card. However, this card is half mini. It needs a bracket in order to work on the slot in the Galileo. There is even a place in the plastic shell that the board comes for the bracket. However, it is empty. I found one on an auction site for a few bucks, but it is a pain to have to wait for it.

Other Thoughts: NewEgg shouldn't offer this as a bundle with the Galileo without the bracket.
