5 out of 5 eggs Best network adapter I ever owned 04/19/2016

This review is from: ASUS PCE-AC56 802.11ac Dual-band Wireless-AC1300 PCI-E Adapter

Pros: I've had such bad luck with wireless adapters in the past. I've tried 4 different wireless cards in the past and they've all fallen short on me. Weather it be awful range, spotty 5GHz coverage, driver issues and one just up and died for no reason!

But this one is different. Right out of box the signal is strong. The antennas feel durable and well made. It seem to provide a pretty good boost.
5GHz mode works great. I've been using it at work for about a month issue without a single issue where as my previous card would constantly drop the 5GHz network :/

Windows 10 support works. Haven't had one issue with this on my windows 10 PC.

Cons: I wish the cord was a few feet longer. I'd love to mount this on the wall even higher for the best reception possible.

Pros: I got this for my work PC. I deal mainly with SQL Server and setting up local tests before I push my changes to QA.
This SSD has a huge time saver. My local test fly by in < 1min when previously it would take 5-10mins on another SSD.
Everything loads in sub secs. Visual Studios, SQL management studio, MySql work bench.
Did some bench-marking and I got about the speeds advertised.

Cons: Absolutely nothin!

Pros: Got the speeds and size specified.
Did a couple memory tests and the two sticks passed without issue
One of the best $/gb value in the 2X8GB category.

Cons: Decals are kind of hokey imo
