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.

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 fast connectivity, range and for it's price. I'd say it is definitely worth to upgrade you're desktop with this adapter. Nothing more I can really say besides being really satisfied.

Cons: Nothing

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Performance

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: Easy Installation
Excellent performance
Both antenna and adapter look great
No disconnects or drops

Cons: On my motherboard, the PCIe 1x connector is between my two graphics cards, so the adapter's heatsink pushes against the lower card. Luckily, my gfx card has a metal backplate so I have no danger of shorting out the board.

Other Thoughts: I've paired this adapter with the ASUS RT-AC68U Router, and it is blazing fast! I'm about 80-100 feet from the router, 1 floor higher, and through multiple walls, yet I still get within 98% of full wired speed, which in my case is 128 Mbs with wireless, 130 Mbs wired. This is using the 5 GHz channel. On 2.4 GHz, I usually see around 125 Mbs down. It really is an incredibly fast wireless adapter!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Range and performance

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: Support Beamforming
Great range
Great performance
Looks cool

I have FIOS 150/150 and get the full 150 Mbps up and down over this, using my WRT19000AC wireless router

Cons: The software takes 22 seconds to start after I log into Windows. Then it takes another 37 seconds to connect to my saved profile. That means any automatically mounted shares don't mount on startup.

Their technical support is really bad

4 out of 5 eggsGood card

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: Adapter gets great reception and runs super fast.
Magnetic base is great for positioning antenna for optimal reception.

Cons: Driver in Win 8.1 creates ID 7000 error event several times a minute until worked around, but does not impact performance.
Card came with back plate attached incorrectly but it may have just slipped through QC. 2 screws out and re-positioned=fixed.
