Pros: This thing was great. It over doubled my download speeds after switching over to the 5GHz band. I thought I was in heaven.
It's great if you need an inexpensive solution to wireless utility.
Cons: However, the key word is "was". It didn't last me the week I had it. I dunno what happened, but something mustve fried, because it's no longer recognized by my PC, even after several removals and re-installations.
Other Thoughts: I kind of hope I can get a refund for this. In the future, I'm going to stick with PCIE cards if I need wireless utility...
I'm sure it's just my bad luck however.
Pros: Great card. Can run everything I need it to run on my budget gaming rig.
Gonna be testing out Battlefield 4 in a week, but Battlefield 3 and all other modern games run beautifully so far.
Who needs a $2,000 Titan when this works just fine (unless you do 3-D modelling, in which case you'll wanna look upwards of $200 at least).
Cons: The back plate where the ports are were a little on the short side for my Rosewill Challenger case, and the card was lopsided in its slot on the mobo. A pair of pliers and some careful metal-bending later, and it's correctly seated and 100% straight from both the inside and the back. Not going to take off an egg though, because it's probably a niche problem or I simply screw-ed my Mobo in a bit too far to the right.
Other Thoughts: Used this card in my first build. A budget gaming rig that ran me about the soft side of $600. It's working flawlessly with all my games on Steam/Origin so far and I'm quite happy.READ FULL REVIEW
