4 out of 5 eggsGood But Nothing Special

Pros: Pros: bought from newegg, easy install and setup, works fine. but not any better than anything else I have used so I cannot recommend as an upgrade.

5 out of 5 eggsGood price, works great

Pros: Works perfectly. I installed this Atheros-based adapter in an Ubuntu 14.04 LTS desktop. Connected easily - uses the ath9k kernel driver.
Speed seems fine. No dropped connections or problems to note.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Didn't use, but it comes with low profile bracket and mini-CD. I bought this adapter for the price and several reviews mentioning it worked well with Linux. I would definitely buy again.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes what it is supposed too.

Pros: -Works
-Comes with low profile bracket
-Easy install
-Good range
-Detachable attana
-Good speeds

Cons: -Bad latency

Other Thoughts: For the price this wireless adapter is good. Its got good speeds and good range. I'm about 3 floors above my modem and i get a five bar connection. The only bad part is that this device seems to enjoy losing packets, not to much where it would effect my gaming but its noticeable. Most of the comments that i have seen about this device say that it keeps randomly cutting out for them, it has not once for me. Maybe they just got a bad one, lucky i did not. This device is great and i would recommend it to my friends because it does exactly what it says on the package.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Advertised speed 300 Mbps ... actual speed 4 Mbps...and yes I know the difference between Mbps and MBps...My actual download speeds with Time Warner Cable on same computer with wired bridge is 12 Mbps (1.3 MBps)...with this card i get 4.5ish Mbps (300-400 KBps)

Other Thoughts: I have Windows 7 Home Edition

I used driver on CD and then tried new one from TP-Links website which made no difference

Planning on returning card.

2 out of 5 eggsNot great reception

Pros: Easy install. Windows found drivers. Drivers on mini-disc were same as ones online (up to date).

Cons: This thing has bad reception. I have another computer with a trendnet adapter very close and it gets great reception. This one is so bad I can barely surf and play games.

This one gets worse reception and the latency is HORRIBLE.

Other Thoughts: I thought Trendnet was a off-brand. but it looks like this one is even worse! I should have gone with what worked and not tried to go for something else.

I didn't wanna put the same adapter in two computers near to each other or I would have bought the other one.

5 out of 5 eggsTL-WN881ND

Pros: Easy to install. Pretty good range. It works just fine on Windows 7 and Windows 8.1

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: I ended up buying two of these for two different desktop computers. One is running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. The other is running Windows 8.1 64-bit. I only installed the driver and use the Windows built in network manager.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works, easy to install, dual channel, has two antennas for maximum signal coverage. This thing is good for picking up a router very close to you, if you're trying to grab signal from next door it won't work very well.

Cons: Not plug and play, had to install drivers manually in windows 7. Plug n play works for windows 8.

Did you find this review helpful? Yes No

4 out of 5 eggsPretty average which is good.

Pros: The biggest pro for me is that I didn't have to install drivers from TP-Links website or from the mini-CD. I installed the card, turned on the computer and Windows 7 took care of the rest and I was up and running in maybe a minute so totally Plug-n-Play compliant. I used this card to mainly transmit youtube video and netflix from my computer to one of those google chrome dongles on my non-smart television. It's worked flawless for that task. It does a nice job and I didn't have any driver issues, good signal strength when I did unplug my network cable for testing. My computer is at least 35 feet and on another floor from the wireless router and I had a good signal for the couple days I tried it out.

I'm really having to think to find anything that makes this card stand out from the others out there. I think they're all pretty much the same and I'd recommend this one just because of the price and PnP ability.

Cons: Zero - nada. I just can't think of anything bad about this card. It worked flawlessly, the signal strength was fine and that's about it.

Other Thoughts: If you need a wireless adapter card thats PCI Express x1, b,g,n signal and want it Plug-n-Play compliant then this is a great card at a nice price.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Connectivity

Pros: I'm using this card on my PC on the 1st floor, about 30ft away (direct line) from my wireless access point in the basement. Good signal strength (3bars) and absolutely not connection problems. I tried USB/wireless at got no connection at all.
Price was great and the product has worked flawlessly.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought two more for other desktops. I do recommend this card. I'm using this one in a Dell Precision 690 running Windows 7/Pro.
