1 out of 5 eggsBuffalo AirStation AC866 Dual Band Wireless USB Adapter WI-U2-866

This review is from: BUFFALO AirStation AC866 Dual Band Wireless USB Adapter - WI-U2-866D

Pros: Did not realize any of the speeds advertised. Using a Buffalo WZR-1750DHPD Router with this client adapter mounted in a USB 3 port of a new laptop. Highest transfer speed indicated was 170 Mbs.

Cons: Adapter has a fold out design, broke immediately when removed from packaging. I broke on first attempt to unfold it. The design is frail and I cannot believe any mechanical engineer would sign off on it to last any amount of time.

Other Thoughts: Did not see the speeds promised in a good environment (less then 10 feet of separation between the host computer and the wireless router.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Adapter

This review is from: BUFFALO AirStation AC866 Dual Band Wireless USB Adapter - WI-U2-866D

Pros: Great Speed
Easy Set Up
Good Performance

Cons: Lack of Documentation

Other Thoughts: This is an alteration to my last review. The issue I was having with it dropping connection and not being recognized was a USB 2.0 issue. I moved it to a USB 3.0 port and have not had a drop in 10s of hours since.

2 out of 5 eggsDrops Connection Like Whoa

This review is from: BUFFALO AirStation AC866 Dual Band Wireless USB Adapter - WI-U2-866D

Pros: Easy Set Up
Good Speed

Cons: Poor Documentation
Drops Connection Often

Other Thoughts: I have my PC set to not power off, and I have the adapter in control of it's power, but this "adapter" has randomly kicked off multiple times in the course of three hours of use.

Honestly don't know if this is a Windows 8.1 issue or a Buffalo issue, but they have poor support documentation, so I have to blame the device.

Manufacturer Response:

WiCKeD, I am sorry that your unit fell apart on you. This is surprising since this a very well built unit. Good thing you have a 3 year warranty on this adapter. Please contact me so we can help set up a warranty replacement. Or you can call direct to (866) 752-6210.

thanks
Marco
