4 out of 5 eggsDecent enough

Pros: Bandwidth is good
Gui is nice for drivers and settings
easy installation and nice looking

Cons: In AC bandwidth it displays as wireless N and refuses to run in AC bandwidth. But after research you will see it is running at AC speeds. So it can be a bit confusing.

Other Thoughts: I would put up the extra twenty bucks for the next level up with the tri antennae if you are going to go for this model

5 out of 5 eggsWireless Card

Pros: - performs great
- looks slick
- easy to set-up
- Physical set-up option: attached antenna on the actual card or wired base station

I did not have the space to place my computer near the modem. So I placed it in a spare room, now turned to an office. The room is located on one side of my home and the wireless router at the other. I am very pleased on the connection strength considering the distance and obstacles between the two points

Cons: Not really a con!

- Had to bend the bracket a little because it was short from reaching the device hold of my computer case (Thermaltake Lv10GT).

Other Thoughts: Win 7 Ultimate
Thermaltake Lv10 GT
MSI R7 250 (x2)
ASUS A88X-Pro
AMD A10-7850K
GSkill Ripjaws X Series 32gb
Corsair AX series AX760

4 out of 5 eggsWorks with Windows 8.1

Pros: Works well and I get a very fast connection. I haven't been able to test it yet through walls or at a long distance though. Kind of pricey but for some reason my regular PCI express card wouldn't work anymore once I installed 8.1. This is the first PCI express card I've bought and it works like a charm so crysis averted. Because having no wireless internet would be a crysis.....first world problems

Cons: Kind of pricey.

1 out of 5 eggsTwo Defectives in a row

Pros: If it had worked it would likely have been nice.

Cons: Both the original and the RMA replacement were defective.

Other Thoughts: The device was capable of functioning so long as you didn't want to use the antennas. Once you plugged them in it would cause a BSOD on Windows7 x64. This happened with the original purchase and the replacement unit. When I contacted Asus support they suggested an RMA for the second unit. With experiencing the same issue twice I have no confidence in their product and will be returning for refund.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing!

Pros: Easy to install

Gives you a solid lightning speed Internet connection!! I have a 108.32Mb/s Download speed!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: My Internet speed using this card is:

108.32Mb/s
Upload 19.63Mb/s
PING 1 ms

I clocked my speeds on Speedtest.net The test was taken from my desktop placed in my basement which is super far from my Internet router. I am stunned by these speeds! Online gaming is so much better! Thanks ASUS!!!!!!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works great on Windows7 and 8.1. Just a note, it will only get what your router can put out, but it does to the max.

Cons: so far none
