5 out of 5 eggsAnother gaming weak link eliminated

This review is from: ASUS PCE-AC68 Dual-band Wireless-AC1900 Adapter IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n PCI Express Up to 600 and 1300Mbps Wireless Data Rates

Pros: Screaming link speeds. 216Mbaud available, and that's just with G.

I've never used such a fast wireless card. And, unlike the previous MoBo with the built-in WiFi, this gets five big, fat, solid bars of reception.

As an added plus, my HideMyAss VPN service seems to not drop out and throw a fit as often with a high-quality card like this.

External antennae base so you can mount the antennae separate from your actual comp with the three small cords that you can attach to the sockets for antennae at the PCI card slot thing where it shows out the back of the comp.

Cons: Only thing close to a con is that has about 1-2mm clearance between its excellent heat sink and the next card, which is my video card.

I could have put it elsewhere, but I want a second video card eventually, so I didn't want to block access to my second PCIe X16 slot, and use up an X16 holder when a tiny X1 holder works just dandy.

Other Thoughts: I have been wanting a good gaming wireless card for ages, and this definitely improves the gaming, in my opinion. Wired is king, but if you can't get that, then pop for the few extra bucks to make it so that you don't become a wictim instea of a wictor.

3 out of 5 eggsMight be good

This review is from: ASUS PCE-AC68 Dual-band Wireless-AC1900 Adapter IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n PCI Express Up to 600 and 1300Mbps Wireless Data Rates

Pros: Great antennae design

Cons: does not seem to work properly on my PC, very slow download/upload speeds, contacted ASUS support, they gave basic troubleshoot, then after I replied that it did not work, they then told me to return it.

Other Thoughts: It is not the card's issue I do not believe, but I need tech assistance on configuring it with my DIR-890L/R Router, everything else that's wireless in my house gets Ethernet cable speeds except my computer.
using Z68 extreme3 gen3 motherboard w/ i7-2600k cpu, PNY geforce 980ti, patriot 8Gb memory.

5 out of 5 eggsReview of the Asus PCE-AC68

This review is from: ASUS PCE-AC68 Dual-band Wireless-AC1900 Adapter IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n PCI Express Up to 600 and 1300Mbps Wireless Data Rates

Pros: This card works as advertised. Easy to install, extremely fast speeds, and increased my signal to a full 5 bar.

Cons: NOTE:

Do NOT buy this if you intend on using it with Windows 10, at least not yet because it will not work and your system will most likely crash as mine does. I had to revert back to Windows 8.1 but I'm hoping they will come out with the official Windows 10 Drivers.

Other Thoughts: Awesome card for people running Window 7/8.1, not Windows 10 (yet)

1 out of 5 eggslocksups w/MSI 970a-g64 mobo

This review is from: ASUS PCE-AC68 Dual-band Wireless-AC1900 Adapter IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n PCI Express Up to 600 and 1300Mbps Wireless Data Rates

Pros: very very fast when it works
easy to install

Cons: literally locks up windows while streaming media w/new MSI 970A-g64 A3+ mobo. making it unusable, for the cost - better off pulling wires.

Other Thoughts: I think that this could be one of the best or worst cards currently available - if ASUS would take ownership and update the drivers.

5 out of 5 eggsMy wifi performance on 2.4 and 5ghz is full performance now

This review is from: ASUS PCE-AC68 Dual-band Wireless-AC1900 Adapter IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n PCI Express Up to 600 and 1300Mbps Wireless Data Rates

Pros: I'm getting full speed even though the signal is bad. Both on 2.4 and 5ghz, they perform at full speed on speedtest.net. Very happy with the purchase. Worth every penny I spend.

Cons: None that I could think of. I can barely see the card since my graphics card is blocking it. It would be nice to have the red heat sink glow.

Other Thoughts: I had a Gigabyte GC-WB867D-I before and it's not even close to this. Most of the time, it wouldn't even connect to the 5ghz wifi and it drops a lot.

Pros: With the use of this card, I have only one thing to say, FAST.

Cons: Color? Would have preferred blue or white, but that's a preference.
