5 out of 5 eggsworth

Pros: Its good. I'd recommended.

Cons: placing the antennas in the back might be hard if you have no room.

Did you find this review helpful? Yes No

5 out of 5 eggsGood for the money.

Pros: As always TP-Link never fails with great packaging on the products they sell.

I quickly threw it into my HTPC that sits by my 47" tv and installed the drivers immediately. Had no issues doing that and right after it showed all the surrounding available networks in my area. A few I saw were some I've never seen before so I am guessing the card is picking up networks further in my neighborhood which is a good sign.

Streamed a few movies on netflix, did a few matches on league of legends and card holds up well. The antennas are a big plus and am positive that without them, the range and connection wouldn't be as strong.

So far it's doing every thing it's advertised to do and saves my one of my usb ports from having a wifi adapter plugged in. Card has a nice little heatsink on that keeps it rather cool. I like that the PCB is black and not green, really just sinks into my motherboards layout. Build quality is rock solid for sure.

PCI is preferred for a wireless connection if you want a more stable and secure connection vs. USB. I've had quite a lot of dropped connections while using a USB adapter, for unknown reasons.

Cons: None really.

Some desktop motherboards now and days come with wireless cards (motherboards have slot that accepts mini wifi cards) but a lot still do not and rely on either usb or pci cards like these to achieve a wireless connection if the computer is not near the router.

Sure it's not as easy as plugging in a USB adapter and connecting to the internet right away but opening up your desktop to slide this in isn't hard either, maybe you can clean the guts while you're at it.

Other Thoughts: Great coverage and connection.

Price is a bit steep vs. other brands that offer similar specs. Anyone looking for a wireless adapter that has a pci-e interface then this is a very good choice. You won't be disappointed.

1 out of 5 eggsTerible Performance

Pros: The card installed fine with no errors using Windows 7 Pro and windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. That's about all I can say...

Cons: The speed on this card is TERRIBLE! I have a built in Intel Adapter on my laptop and in the same exact spot it's able to get 70-80mbps for a download speed. I have this card plugged into my PC and I get 5-10mbps... Updated all drivers, updated firmware on the TP Link Router. NOTHING. So much for high speed wifi... don't waste your $100...

It does get great reception though, all full bars, just no speed.

4 out of 5 eggsDoes the job but not better than some

Pros: Very solid build quality with a nice black pcb and large heat sink
The antennas are nice and small so they don't get in the way of wires in the back of the computer

Cons: May not be worth the price. This replaced an ASUS PCE N53 card but the performance was not much better for the price. While it was fast the price just wasn't worth the upgrade to me in the end

Other Thoughts: Great card and depending on what price you can get it at I would say maybe look at ASUS mid level cards and compare them to those if you want to save a few dollars

2 out of 5 eggsWorks at first, but...

Pros: Definitely faster than my old card. I'm still using a wireless n router, but even then, the throughput is definitely better than my old Asus wireless n card.

Cons: When I installed the card on my PCI-E 1x slot, I noticed that it fit in loosely. I made sure the best I can that it was in all the way and tightened the screw. For the first couple of weeks of use, it seemed to make no difference, but now I'm having troubles keeping a steady connection. Either the connection seems to come and go, or I will lose it completely, which makes Windows want to reset the adapter. I did not have this problem with the old card, and I do not have a problem with my other wireless devices, so I know that it is the card causing this issue. I think that maybe it's because of the loose fit, but who knows?

Other Thoughts: I am currently communicating with a representative of TP-LINK by email, but I have yet to get an RMA approval, and I haven't heard from the person in a couple of days. I hope I do not have to escalate to get something done here. I see that the card gets really positive reviews overall, and I want to feel the same!

1 out of 5 eggsCompatibility or defective?

Pros: It looks nice physically and on paper...

Cons: I have tried to get this to work on my computer for hours... The device is not showing up so I can't install the drivers. I also can't install the drivers manually to the "unknown Device". I'm not sure if its my computer or the product. Contacting their support or sending this back for a new one. will update review/eggs then.

Other Thoughts: I've spent hours on the forums and researching and found next to nothing of this same issue of mine so i'm assuming its defective.

5 out of 5 eggsSICK

Pros: Wow, I did not know investing back into a hardware nic would be the best thing to help my wireless internet connection. I was using different usb adapters, and they work but signals would constantly drop, and I would frequently have spotty connections with my devices.

Purchasing this is a life saver. My wireless connections are much stronger. I was able to use a wireless device that had me stumped for a while. If you have a desktop and should get out of using usb adapters this card is to get. Invest in this product.

Cons: I like using all three of the antenna's, but they stick out none the less, so awareness you could cause damage to your system if they were hit, knock on...... Also the placement of where you would insert the card. With the antenna's it could bump into the monitor cables, usb etc....

Other Thoughts: The card does look sweet with the black heat sink.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent range and speed, good price

Pros: Having just upgraded my router to an AC router, I was in need of an actual AC supported device and this PCI adapter did just the trick on my HTPC in the living room!

Setup:
Installation was quick and easy. Inserted into my HTPC case (low profile was awesome), installed the driver, and was ready to go. I did not install the other included software as it is generally bloat and unneeded.

Range:
My home was not wired for ethernet, and my living room is no where near the wireless access point (due to poor coax availability when internet was installed). However, this adapter was able to pick up a full signal with excellent speed from 30+ feet away and through several walls and metal ventilation. Even the 5.0GHz band which is notorious for having lower range for higher speeds had 70% signal which is excellent compared to my phone which only gets 30% signal at the same distance.

Speed:
Used this to stream movies over the internet and over local network, as well as play online games and all experiences were superb. If your network and internet has the speed, this device can handle it!

Price:
A little steep at the ~$70 range, but AC is still new and you will pay a slight premium for it.

Quality:
Build quality, packaging, etc were all good. Seems sturdy enough and the antennas are snug and easily directed toward wherever you need them.

Cons: Price a tad high for a wireless adapter, but AC and 3 external antennas come at a premium.

Other Thoughts: I've said this many times and I'll keep saying it. I love external antennas. I cannot stand when wireless devices use internal antennas. The benefits and differences may all be in my head, but from personal experience external antennas have always provided better range and signal quality.
