5 out of 5 eggsGood Product

Pros: The most important, and perhaps impressive thing about this product is the connection speed it provides. I have had no problems whatsoever with speed since I plugged this in. I am consistently getting a 25-30 Mbps download speed and right around 4-5 Mbps upload speed with this adapter, which suits my needs just fine. Another very nice thing about this product is the USB cord extender, which allows me to position the adapter in an area where it is getting less interference. Compared to the N600 adapter from Linksys (which I returned), this thing is night and day better.

As far as adapters go, this is one that I would recommend. It is a bit more expensive than most adapters, but well worth the cost based upon performance.

Cons: I have no major complaints to report.

Other Thoughts: I went to a retail store to pick this up, and though it ran be $60, I don't regret the purchase. I have been through two $40 adapters now, and both were complete duds. If I am going to need to pay $20 to get the kind of internet connection I want for gaming, then so be it.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: Fast, when stable

Cons: Not stable - disconnects constantly

Other Thoughts: Bought this at the same time as buying a DIR-868L router. The first issue was that the d-link software fights with Windows 8.1 for control over the adapter, causing it to bounce up and down. So I uninstalled the d-link software and installed the driver only. Problem fixed, or so I thought. Now I just had sketchy connections that gradually became worse. Now, this adapter lies in pieces in my bathroom trash can (finally became that frustrated) and I have run an ethernet wire through the wall to my router. MUCH better.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Well But Not Perfect

Pros: no handshake issues with my LINKSYS09868 in 5gh AC only mode. Windows registers a 400 Mbps connection, which is better than I can manage on my wireless N cards (I don't think a device rated at 150 ever registers with that ceiling; they top out between 65Mbps and 72Mbps).

Very stable connection. Works every time (win 8.1), but I'm using the USB 2.0 socket on my laptop.

Cons: bulky. you almost have to use the extension cord/adapter just because of the surface area that the device itself occupies at the USB port. not ideal for laptops...but not a deal breaker either.

Other Thoughts: I bought this because it was easily the least expensive AC-compatible adapter available at the time, and I wanted to test the new router, but non of my devices were AC-ready.

the software/connection manager works well with Win8's native wireless controls & monitoring system. I can run things through the DLink software, and the Win8 stuff accurately reflects what I've done. The DLink software tells me more information in a more meaningful way about the wireless condition in the area (SSDs, Bands, Channels). So that makes manually selecting a clean channel easier without having to rely on a dedicated device/scanner.

1 out of 5 eggsHuge disapointment

Pros: AC Speeds, on a friendly USB form factor, when it works.

Cons: Where should i start, let see, I open the box, and the first thing i notice is that the USB Expansion cradle was missing, then when I install the drivers for the AC USB adapter right away it started giving me hell, it would connect and then disconnect, it seem to only be stable when using 802.11 N wireless network, when i tried to use 802.11 AC it would start malfunctioning, I notice that when using AC the USB stick would get really hot, however when using 802.11 N it would only get warm, as a computer professional I can say that D-link let me down on this one, I have bought D-link products before, and none had failed me like this one until now, what a disappointment.

Other Thoughts: D-link tends to make reliable networking products but I feel that they might be dropping the ball, on this one, what a disappointment.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: None

Cons: This adapter is slow, and will not run at all in USB 3.0 port, keeps losing connection . Tried unit in usb 2.0 port and it works just ok but slow, My N adapter blows the socks off this. Save your money and get a Linksys, I bought one and is far better than this.

Other Thoughts: I called tech support they were unable to help me, we tried reinstalling the drivers with no help. My usb ports are working fine, I tried other usb 3.0 devices and they worked fine. D-link wanted me to try this in another computer. but I dont have another computer with usb 3.0.

3 out of 5 eggsStability Issues

Pros: Decent price, works well on one PC

Cons: I could not get it to work reliably on another PC either in Win 7 or Win8.1 (both x64). Would cutout and then not find any WiFi networks. Tried it on another slower PC in house and it works well in both Win7 and Win8.1 (both x64).

Other Thoughts: Wish it worked on the 1st PC.

5 out of 5 eggsMine is USB 3.0!!!

Pros: Works very fast. I didn't think it was USB 3.0, and I thought it would have an extension cord. No extension, but it is USB 3.0!!! WOW!

Cons: It's wide so it may block neighboring USB ports.

Other Thoughts: The housing should be narrower, it blocks too much space, but this thing is FAST! Sometimes it takes a minute to connect, but once it connects, it stays connected.

4 out of 5 eggsGood

Pros: Works really well compared to my other outdated adapter that maxed out at 54 Mbps.

Cons: Will randomly disconnect every so often. Not looking forward to that in the middle of a game.
Did not come with the USB extension. My old adapter was also D-Link so I already had one. Not sure if just my order or everyone else too.

Other Thoughts: Overall it is over double the speed of my old adapter which is good
