Pros:

Works well, easy swap in NEW Samsung Q430 laptop. Original Atheros AR9285 would not hit above 64 mbps on N Apple Airport No matter what. I like the laptop so New Egg to the rescue 3 days later and pow. Running 144 mbps rock solid. I can live with that.

Cons:

none really, check Intel for latest driver if Win 7 doesn't find it for you. This card is not a half size, postage stamp size but fits well.

Other Thoughts:

Install is not for the faint of heart to computer mfg warranties beware. The installation is simple once you open the case. BE CAREFUL.
Doing some reading, seems the computer mfgs have nothing to do with Atheros 9285 not hitting speed the same in all types regardless of make. Another blog.
