Pros: My Canon 550D (T2i) worked well with the card. Images in JPG and RAW saved quickly between shots. 1080P video at 60fps recorded flawlessly. The card handles burst photos rather well. Read and write speeds were consistent with the advertised ratings.
Cons: Data tolerance and write speeds when writing onto either exFAT, FAT, NTFS, and HFS is variable. Be cautious when going back and forth between these schemes.
Other Thoughts: Format this card initially before using it. A quick format isn't enough.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 8GB DDR3L at 1600mhz
Plug and Play. It works.
Windows 10 benefits nicely from it.
Other Thoughts: Be advised, this operates at a lower voltage than standard DDR3 memory (1.35v vs 1.5v). Take this into consideration when purchasing the RAM you need.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This card holds no compromise in regards to performance.
Using an ASUS RT-N56U with a custom firmware, I maintained constant connectivity with speeds ranging between 300Mb and 600Mb on the 2.4ghz and 5.0ghz spectrums respectively. My connection never dropped once. File transfers and automated backups between my PC and NAS went through effortlessly without any data loss. I currently have the card installed with an external antenna (Rosewill RNX-A2-EX) to minimize any obstructions between the placement of my PC and the router (installed in another room on the opposite end of the residence).
To test the Wireless AC connectivity, I paired the card with the Linksys AC1900 (EA6900) router. Connectivity ranged between 300Mb and 600Mb on the 2.4ghz spectrum and 700Mb and 1.2Gb on the 5ghz spectrum.
The added performance from the faster connectivity came with a caveat of increased heat production under constant usage, however the installed heatsink dissipated the heat efficiently. For those that are curious, the heatsink did not obstruct any other add-in cards installed in my PC.
Cons: Product advertising could be improved to better illustrate the features of this product. "The Heat Sink helps to dissipate heat generated by the adapter, which in turn increases performance and improves stability. What’s more, lower temperatures ensure an increased adapter lifespan." (TP-LINK) "Increases performance" should be written as "preserves performance." Everything else stands correct.
Other Thoughts: There is a driver update available from the TP-LINK webpage. For users installing this card, I suggest you download and install the updated drivers.READ FULL REVIEW
