5 out of 5 eggsWorks like a charm!

This review is from: ASUS PCE-AC56 802.11ac Dual-band Wireless-AC1300 PCI-E Adapter

Pros: Holds a solid, strong wifi connection at full 802.11ac speed. Haven't had a single drop out unlike with my laptop's wifi card which was also 802.11ac. Easy to install. The included software is very good, too.

Cons: I can't think of any.

Other Thoughts: Not cheap - but neither is quality. I really like this card.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat network card

This review is from: ASUS PCE-AC56 802.11ac Dual-band Wireless-AC1300 PCI-E Adapter

Pros: way better Than a usb stick. My normal download speeds were 1.8-1.9 mb/sec on a netgear usb stick. now its 2.3-2.5 mb/sec much faster... expensive yes but you pay for what you get remember that.

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not work with 8.1

This review is from: ASUS PCE-AC56 802.11ac Dual-band Wireless-AC1300 PCI-E Adapter

Pros: Looks cool

Cons: Might as well be a paper weight for me. I called Asus support after trying everything I could think of under the sun to get it to work: reinstalling, disabling driver and reenabling, editing the registry, etc and they said they don't support 8.1 not only with this card but all their wireless cards. Which is kind of a bummer considering that 10 will be out soon. The last hit came when trying to return it Newegg charged me 12 bucks to send it back in. Hopefully this new card I ordered will work with my OS. The rating is low just because it didn't work for me. I'm sure this thing works great with other OS's it supports as most Asus products do.

5 out of 5 eggsRock Solid Performance!

This review is from: ASUS PCE-AC56 802.11ac Dual-band Wireless-AC1300 PCI-E Adapter

Pros: Pros;
1. Stable High Speed Connection, Gaming level speeds
2. Range on this device is very impressive for the price.
3. Packet loss is almost 0.
4. Software is actually usable
5. Cosmetically looks attractive
6. Operates at a low temperature during full load the heat sink is very effective at cooling.

Cons: Cons:
1. Antenna are large for my small form factor case.
2. Antenna do not stay the direction I place them over time they sag.

*Note careful with wire management around the heat shield fan wires can become lodged in the nooks of the heat sink. (My own fault)

Other Thoughts: For the price point this is one of the better wireless networking products I have owned. Asus products have been my more successful networking items. Over the last 10 years only 1 bad item compared to other brands where I have experienced a much lower life span on comparable products.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: ASUS PCE-AC56 802.11ac Dual-band Wireless-AC1300 PCI-E Adapter

Pros: Pretty darn fast. I haven't been able to narrow the smart router I want just yet. But while connected to my old dual-band N router I'm pulling 100% of the up and down speeds I'm paying through my IPS wirelessly. The router is placed on a lower level at the complete opposite end of my house. With my old card and machine it needed to be in the same room to pull about 90% of full speeds.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: The antenna extender mount base thing is magnetic. So it stick to the side of your case or to a desk / filing cabinet which is cool.

1 out of 5 eggsBelongs in the TRASH

This review is from: ASUS PCE-AC56 802.11ac Dual-band Wireless-AC1300 PCI-E Adapter

Pros: Looks cool...

Cons: I have never had so much trouble with one product in my entire life. I have been building computers for over 8 years now and I can honestly say this is the biggest waste of money I was never able to get this thing to work....NOT ONCE. My pc would recognize it for a min or two the the device would disappear but I know it's not the slot because other devices work just fine in it. If only 1 person reads this review and changes their mind I have done my job please steer clear of this JUNK.

Other Thoughts: Do not waste your money on this.
