1 out of 5 eggsNetgear; Connecting you to the internet, sort of

Pros: Easy setup

Cons: Loves to stop working whenever it feels like it, daily reboots due to it disabling itself. Not particularly my favorite wireless card. You're better off getting Ethernet or fiber cables.

Other Thoughts: Really, just not this

2 out of 5 eggsAbsolute garbage for anything but Windows 7

Pros: Works like a charm with Windows 7, but once Windows 10 came out Netgear claims that they "no longer support the product".

Cons: Has serious issues with Windows 10 as the drivers completely crash, forcing you to either disconnect the device and reconnect it, and in a lot of cases you have to RESTART YOUR COMPUTER to fix it, I kid you not.

Disconnects whenever I try downloading a big file such as a game through Steam.

Indecently, can't give them a 1 egg because when it works, it works like a charm, but the fact that Netgear shoved this thing under the rug when it started having problems with Windows 10 (and some people have problems with Windows 8.1) is absolutely ridiculous

Other Thoughts: Don't buy it if you plan to upgrade in the future or already have windows 10 on your pc

1 out of 5 eggsWindows-Specific

Pros: None that I can think of. The replacement for this unit was cheaper and easier to implement.

Cons: DOES NOT WORK EASILY WITH LINUX; I had to fight this thing; perhaps this is a failing on my part. But, it needn't be so difficult as evidenced by the EDIMAX.

Other Thoughts: The EDIMAX EW-7711USN (N150 USB 2.0 High Gain Wireless Adapter) unit was working within minutes.

2 out of 5 eggs**DO NOT BUY** - Works for 4 months and dies

Pros: This wireless adapter works for a great amount of time! It had great speeds and connection for awhile! It was great for gaming until it died.

Cons: Even with all of its pros, this adapter dies quite easily. After a little over a year, I've noticed that my internet connection was dropping and my ping was getting higher.
After my dad and I buying a Powerline adapter (which was terrible) and buying two extensions to see if that would help our situation in the back of the house, I unplugged the device and found that it was about 115 degrees Fahrenheit! I had to blow into the ventilation to see if that would help and cool it off (which worked) but became quite repetitive and rage-inducing when I was in the middle of a game.
Also, the fact that you need to get software for this adapter to work is ridiculous! We needed to go on anther computer in order to get the setup so it could work!

Other Thoughts: This is just about the worst adapter I've ever owned and I'm looking forward for my Rosewill AC1200 to come soon and hopefully work!

2 out of 5 eggsok....but not ok for me

Pros: -connects to the Internet...pretty much it
-Can receive up to 300 Mbps

Cons: If you are planning on buying this for gaming don't, you will constantly have horrible lag spikes I'm talking about randomly going from 30 ping to 400 ping,.....yeah so just. No

Other Thoughts: Good if you are just gonna stream and browse the web

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It worked one time for over 10 minutes.

Cons: Signal will drop out anywhere between 1 to 10 minutes after starting computer in Windows 8.1. Have reinstalled drivers multiple times. When device is unplugged and plugged back into computer after dropping signal, computer will freeze for a few minutes and computer will not recognize device unless it is restarted.

1 out of 5 eggsComplete Garbage

Pros: Pretty fast, good for Wireless-N networking when it performs correctly, cool design.

Cons: Sadly, the cons are what make this product awful. Does not function correctly in Windows 8 or 8.1 even with new drivers. Constantly stops working and I have to restart the computer to fix the problem. Causes other USB devices to become unresponsive until unplugged. I have had a few BSOD's with this card in use. It's really sad because when it's fully functional it works perfectly. Netgear just didn't do the right thing this time around. It's hit and miss.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this card unless you want to push your luck and hope you don't get the same one most of us have received.

5 out of 5 eggsOwned a few months now

Pros: Fantastic strength with this little device. Only installed the driver, not the complete software package. The signal was so strong, had to put a glass over it to keep it from interrupting my VO-IP phone connection. Will definitely order another one in the future if I get another computer that does not come with wifi. This device has never failed over the last few months. No lag during online videos or streaming.

Cons: Not a single one.

Other Thoughts: For those who are having trouble with this device, be sure that your wireless router or modem/router combo is less than a year old or this device will not be compatible. Am using it with a Netgear wireless router, so they are definitely compatible.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks for me

Pros: Plugs right in and once you load the drivers, fires right up. I've had this on my new desktop build for a couple of weeks and it has worked flawlessly with my wireless router.

Cons: None that I can think of.
