Pros:

Fast speeds. My router, an ASUS RT-N66U running firmware version 3.0.0.4.276 (the later ones are much slower with this wireless adapter) and this adapter are getting up to 20 megabytes a second transferring files from my PC to the NAS over the 5G channel. The Nas is upstairs and the PC is in the basement directly beneath. Range is decent but not great so choose something with external antennas if you'll be connecting over long distances or through multiple walls.

Cons:

One problem I experienced early on was audio and video stutter when using the network card at the same time as playing an MP3 or watching a video. I used DPC latency checker to show that the network connection was causing spikes. I can't remember exactly what I did but I had to update several drivers to get everything to play nice. This may be an isolated case due to my specific hardware as there is no mention of the issue elsewhere on the web.

Other Thoughts:

If you have a 300mbs router I recommend this wireless adapter. For 450mbs or the even faster AC I would get something else.
