5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works well on the commercial WIFI setup in the building where I live that has a commercial grade WIFI router and at least 12 WIFI relays. This unit works well with Windows, Linux, and Unix. Comes with both low profile bracket that works well with my new system and regular profile bracket that worked well with my old system.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: none

4 out of 5 eggsGood card

Pros: Easy to install
Low price

Cons: Didn't solve my connectivity issues in Win8.1.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to try to resolve an issue I am having with my Win8.1 wireless connectivity. It does have Win8.1 drivers available on the support website. It did not improve my continual drop out issue. Works great for WinVista, old hard drive OS. Tried it to make sure the card wasn't the problem. Just Win8.1 problem.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: - Great Range

Better than any USB adapter I've used and I've had quite a few.

Cons: The antennas get in the way a little but was to be expected.

5 out of 5 eggsHandy, solid, quick

Pros: Windows 7 x64 install - using Windows to manage wireless network, no issues whatsoever. Solid performance, no drops, speeds consistent with other dual-band wireless N adapters in the same location.

Size of card allows this card to fit beneath an eVGA 780 Ti Dual Classified on an Asus X79 Sabertooth with no issues. Barely blocks a corner of one of the GPU fans, no noticeable airflow impact.

Cons: None noticed yet. First TRENDnet purchase ever.

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.
