Pros: I've had two of these for several years and I haven't had any stability trouble with either one using 2.4GHz. I'm buying a third one. I use them as an external antenna when a wireless card can't pick up a strong or steady signal. Not their intended purpose but they work.
Cons: 5.0GHz is almost worthless. 60% signal when less than ten feet away with no abstractions. I'm using this with a D-Link Xtreme-N router. Signal almost zero when traveling through one wall. 2.4GHz is strong. 5.0 signal not steady enough to stream anything. 2.4 streams well.
Other Thoughts: I only use 2.4GHz because of the pitiful 5.0 signal. Minis one egg.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: Got my replacement board today and the same problem persists. BIOS update bricks board. Recovery is not an option, tried to no avail.
Other Thoughts: This time I attempted to do incremental updates instead of going straight to the latest BIOS. First update bricked board same as last. Got store credit for this one. I'll be buying an ASUS this time. BTW, this board is now obsolete anyway since the Gen4 processors just came out. Newegg was nice enough to take my Gen3 i5 back so I can upgrade to Gen4. Thank you Newegg.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: Will not POST. Memory error 32. Tried different memory in different configurations to no avail.
Other Thoughts: Do not buy. This board is all over the forums about error 32 and no POST.READ FULL REVIEW
