5 out of 5 eggsImpressed by this card

Pros: Effortless installation
Software/driver isn't annoying
45-65ms ping in shooters with the router being downstairs, using 5Ghz.

I upgraded from a dinky USB dongle that gave me ping into the 120ms range. I'm very impressed with the performance of this card. I didn't know wireless has become so capable.

Cons: Very rarely I'll experience a momentary lag spike but there could be many causes for that. I am very satisfied with my purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsBlazing Fast!

Pros: This card is great! I am getting speeds faster than when I was hardwired.

Cons: The antennae cable is too short. If it was about 12-24 inches longer it would be much easier to place for a better signal.

Other Thoughts: Just to clear up questions for those wondering if it can be used in a PCI-E x16 slot. It does work, but it will change your throughput. In nearly all set-ups it makes no difference because the throughput is more than plenty for games right now, but if you are looking to maximize SLI or crossfire make sure you have an open pci-e x 1 slot open

5 out of 5 eggsGreat AC Adapter

Pros: Super Fast
Reliable
Great Options for Antenna

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: I originally had an N600 card in my rig. Then when my router got upgraded to an AC1750 I decided to get this card to get the full benefits of AC.

The speed is insane. I can get my full 60Mbps from my ISP over the air. The only time it ever slows down is when my ISP decides to throttle me.

The external antenna base is great. It allows me to have the antennas up higher on a dresser next to my computer for better signal reliability as opposed to having it behind my PC.

Overall, a great card. No reason to get the more expensive version, unless you actually have an ISP hookup of delivering gigabit.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Wireless Adapter

Pros: Great speed. I have Verizon FIOS 75/75 and the wireless adapter in my secondary machine (AC from Intel) could never get higher than 30/30. This adapter does 75/75 without breaking a sweat. Well constructed and Windows 8.1 installs it's own Broadcom drivers. I installed the Asus drivers...and WOW!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I purchased this adapter to work with the Buffalo AC1750 router that I "did" purchase from Newegg. They work incredibly well in tandem. Asus makes solid Wireless gear and this is right at the top.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy, awesome, and well priced

Pros: Installing was incredibly straight forward, the range is great, and the speed is wonderful. The antennae's base is magnetic, which is really helpful for me. The card itself looks very sexy if your computer has a window in it.

Cons: The utility it comes with isn't so great. But hey, who cares!

Other Thoughts: Thanks Asus!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat WiFi card!

Pros: To start off with this is an amazing card. all I did was install it into my computer, put in the driver CD, installed the drives, and boom it works! It also has a pretty decent range for not costing that much.

Cons: no cons thus far.

5 out of 5 eggsEast to install and setup

Pros: I returned a TP-Link PCI-E junk card and got this Asus model. Such a huge difference as I installed it in about 2 minutes and set it up in Windows 8.1 in about 3 minutes with no errors, issues, or drops. I definitely get more wireless signal bars then before but I cant speak to the AC speed as I don't have a AC router yet

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Great feature including an external antenna stand as the two antennas are big

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product!

Pros: Constructed to avoid heat and dissipates it properly in the case to be expelled. Looks fancy and was very simple to install.

I love the antenna options. Either you can have it mounted or use the card itself.

It's blazing fast. Drivers were simple to install. No nonsense.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsWorks like a charm!

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.
