5 out of 5 eggsVISTA 64 Bit Not Supported

Pros: Very stable, 20MBPS transfer rate on 5ghz channel to and from Netgear R7000 and a WD Mybook Essentials USB 3.0 2TB NAS, through two walls. See cons if you have 64 bit Vista. 5 eggs for adapter, 2 eggs for Vista!

Cons: Newegg Specifications page states Vista 32/64 Bit OS supported. However, not supported when trying to install to Vista 64 bit. Checked TrendNet Web site for TEW-726EC support, perhaps a driver update. Only 32 bit Vista supported at this time. Just used card on a Win 7 64 bit comp (which works great) and used Netgear WN111v2 USB adapter dongle for Vista 64 bit (2.4GHZ channel though).

Other Thoughts: I now have three of these wireless adapter cards installed on home network. Well satisfied with performance.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: High throughput, and low latency.

Cons: The card did not fit in it's respective slot... I had to pull some voodoo magic with the cover just to get the bloody thing in.

Also, stability was not what I was expecting. The USB adapter it replaced had less frequent drop-outs, but fixing my router eliminated drop-outs regardless, so no egg removed for that.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I'd say you get what you pay for with this card.

Definitely not the best adapter that I've had, but at least it doesn't have a WPS button that makes the adapter flat out unusable when it breaks.

5 out of 5 eggsWow

Pros: Great connection consistency
Great range
Fantastic speed, especially for wireless
Easy install

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: my fiance uses this across the house, on the top floor. My router is in the basement. The connection might add will be hard wire. I never though I'd see a wireless card as great as this. Will buy again for future computer builds.

4 out of 5 eggsservice

Pros: good card, drivers were up to date install was easy, company replies fast, really a good product for the price

Cons: the first card was not working right, short range for signal

Other Thoughts: i had an issue with the first card i recieved so i contacted the company and they sent me a new card and it runs great. I had to move my wireless router around some and now i have 4/5 bars for signal that is not bad but it is only going through 1 regular wall and about 20 feet away. I think there needs to be an update to this to boost the signal more but over all not to bad for the price. the company was great and replied fast. I took one egg away due to the lack in power for the small distance it is going. not bad for the price though.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks on Linux Mint 13

Pros: Fantastic! Works perfectly on Linux Mint 13 (based on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS). Kernel 3.2.0-57. No additional software or drives required.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Highly recommended if you are replacing a USB device. The PCI interface improves the speed and range of reception.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: -Tight and effective build for minimal space requirements -adjustable antennea easily connected and oriented - driver and utility disk quickly installs needed software - compatible with Windows 7 Professional 64-bit - both 2.4GHz and 5GHz connect quickly and maintain connection - combined 600MPS between 2.4GHz and 5GHz transfers - compatible with Netgear N600 Dual Band router - 3 year extended warranty offered by NewEgg

Cons: Had to reset TCP/IP stack, flush DNS cache, and reset winsock in order for windows to properly bind the driver. - ZoneAlarm Firewall had to be removed and reinstalled as well in order for the adapter to be fully recognized by Windows. All of these are software related issues within my specific system configuration and are not cons of the hardware itself.

Other Thoughts: So far very satisfied.

5 out of 5 eggsNot Just For Windows

Pros: Though TRENDnet only lists Windows as supported OS, this adapter uses Atheros AR9382 chip which is going to work with any Linux distro using kernel 2.6.32 or newer. Linux Mint 15 is kernel 3.8 so you won't have issues, but older versions, without a kernel update, will be more work than you're looking for. Newer Atheros chip than the TP-Link TL-WDN4800 (AR9380) consumes less power than previous generation chip.

Cons: Hard to knock a PCI-e dual-band wireless that uses tried-and-true chipset manufacturer (Atheros) that will work not just on Windows but also Linux and Mac.
