2 out of 5 eggsdisappointing performance

This review is from: Rosewill RNWD-N9003PCE - Dual Band Wireless N900 Adapter - IEEE 802.11a/11b/11g/11n, Up to 450 Mbps (5.0 GHz) + 450 Mbps (2.4 GHz) Data Rates, PCI E Interface, 3 External Detachable Antenna

Pros: Looks good sticking out of the back of my computer, and it didn't come to life and kill me in my sleep.

Cons: Rosewill RNWD-N9003PCE - Dual Band Wireless N900 Adapter - Performance is exactly the same as a USB wireless adapter I bought for $7.50. Both adapters gave me a virtually identical 16 to 17 MBs useing Speedtest.net by Ookla - The Global Broadband Speed Test. My Verizon Fios ethernet connection is 58 MBs down and 68 MBs up. My computer is in a different bedroom from the router, about 15 feet away. No major appliances or electronics in the way. Just two normal house walls.

Other Thoughts: I finally ran ethernet through the attic and down the wall. If you buy a wireless adapter, more cost does not equal better performance.

1 out of 5 eggsNo wonder Newegg put it on sale. Rosewill wireless adapter is terrible

This review is from: Rosewill RNWD-N9003PCE - Dual Band Wireless N900 Adapter - IEEE 802.11a/11b/11g/11n, Up to 450 Mbps (5.0 GHz) + 450 Mbps (2.4 GHz) Data Rates, PCI E Interface, 3 External Detachable Antenna

Pros: Seems fast when it works

Cons: Barely works, pretty useless

Other Thoughts: Always drops, can only find my router sometimes when it does drop. My router is behind a wall but one wall and 5m away!

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid at all costs

This review is from: Rosewill RNWD-N9003PCE - Dual Band Wireless N900 Adapter - IEEE 802.11a/11b/11g/11n, Up to 450 Mbps (5.0 GHz) + 450 Mbps (2.4 GHz) Data Rates, PCI E Interface, 3 External Detachable Antenna

Pros: Very easy to install using the disc, nothing out of the ordinary.

Cons: Incredibly low speeds, poor connection strength, and connection constantly drops making it utilizable.

Other Thoughts: I would refund this product ASAP, however, I did not get to test it before I had owned it for over a month, otherwise, it would be right back where it came from. Unfortunately - I wasted $30 of my hard earned cash on a product that does not work, and will be trashed following this review.

PS
While writing this review, my internet disconnected twice.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible, do NOT buy this product

This review is from: Rosewill RNWD-N9003PCE - Dual Band Wireless N900 Adapter - IEEE 802.11a/11b/11g/11n, Up to 450 Mbps (5.0 GHz) + 450 Mbps (2.4 GHz) Data Rates, PCI E Interface, 3 External Detachable Antenna

Pros: Stupid easy to set up.
If this WIFI adapter is used solely to watch YouTube/Social Media, it will be more than enough.

Cons: Horrible connection with only a single, very thin wall between the router and the adapter.
Connection drops every 10 minutes, making me unable to even consider using this for a gaming PC. (which it was intended for)
Horribly slow speeds, put into comparison with a stock wifi adapter from an HP pavilion desktop MADE IN 2010.

If it was possible for me to refund this product, I would have done so ASAP, however, I did not get to testing this product in a computer until a month after the purchase, and I am extremely furious at myself for that, seeing as I will now be having to purchase another adapter, while this one will literally be thrown into the trashcan, as its next stop.

Other Thoughts: Should have checked the reviews for this product previously, seeing as many people are reporting poor connections that drop.

1 out of 5 eggsabsolutely terrible

This review is from: Rosewill RNWD-N9003PCE - Dual Band Wireless N900 Adapter - IEEE 802.11a/11b/11g/11n, Up to 450 Mbps (5.0 GHz) + 450 Mbps (2.4 GHz) Data Rates, PCI E Interface, 3 External Detachable Antenna

Pros: easy to set up, easy to install, cheap 5 ghz card

Cons: absolutely terrible, installed it, and the thing can't go through walls, so I have 2 wifi bars 5 feet away from the router, and it disconnects every 15 minutes so I have to disconnect then reconnect, and there has never been a single driver update to do anything about it

Other Thoughts: would not recommend this to my worst enemy

3 out of 5 eggsOkay piece of Hardware

This review is from: Rosewill RNWD-N9003PCE - Dual Band Wireless N900 Adapter - IEEE 802.11a/11b/11g/11n, Up to 450 Mbps (5.0 GHz) + 450 Mbps (2.4 GHz) Data Rates, PCI E Interface, 3 External Detachable Antenna

Pros: Lets me use a computer where I can't get a cable to. Stable connection with no drops while using windows 7-64

Cons: Upgraded to windows 10 and the card wasn't having it. Went back to windows 7 to maintain stability. Even looked for drivers to fix the issue. The latest drivers worked for a week then it went back to dropping connection. I would be playing some kind of game online and then a DC would happen once every 10 minutes. While checking out the net, every time you went to open a you tube video the connection would drop.

Other Thoughts: One wall and 25 feet from the router, I get on average 4 out of 5 bars in signal strength. Bought this card in January of 2015

1 out of 5 eggsWorks? Yes. With a few walls? No.

This review is from: Rosewill RNWD-N9003PCE - Dual Band Wireless N900 Adapter - IEEE 802.11a/11b/11g/11n, Up to 450 Mbps (5.0 GHz) + 450 Mbps (2.4 GHz) Data Rates, PCI E Interface, 3 External Detachable Antenna

Pros: Tested this with my pc in the same room as my router. Works very well in that scenario.

Cons: First of all, 8.1 drivers took forever to release so I was sitting on this for about 8 months when I purchased it on 06/2014. That was my fault for not doing research, so no eggs taken off for that.

Router is in the living room, my pc I put in a separate room upstairs. Noticed lag spikes, decided to do some testing. I have an old rosewill USB router that I compared it to (I got it for $7 2 years ago). Ran downloads, streaming, gaming, etc using one each and compared results.
1. This thing averaged 11 ping spikes to 500+ in a day compared to <1 in a day. Compared to a bargain bin usb adapter, thats disgraceful. -2 eggs
2. Streamed with an average of 1 pause per hour compared to to <1 per 5 hours, but managed to download large video files faster. Compared to a bargain bin usb adapter, thats still disgraceful. -2 eggs
3. Tried downloading large video files from the same source. This card did better. But considering it was competing against an adapter that connected via USB, that doesn't give it any bragging rights.

Other Thoughts: TLDR. Works very well if you're relatively close. Put 3 walls between you and the router and this thing literally performs worse than a bargain bin USB wifi adapter. I honestly could have received a dud, but due to driver support I never got to test this conclusively until warranty expired.
