Pros: Asus honors their RMA for those of us who bought the Asus PCE-AC66 and tried using it on a z87 motherboard.
Cons: Driver Support... The only driver available was released about 2 months ago, the one that comes with the disk. In a perfect world with perfect drivers this would be alright, but this isn't as the only driver won't allow me to connect to my router.
I installed the card and was able to connect to my ASUS RT-AC66 router for the first day I had this card. But after that it was unable to connect to the server, changing the pcie slot, nor uninstalling and re-installing the driver nor playing around with adapter settings will allow me to connect back to my router.
Pros: Had it running in a biostar ta890fxe motherboard, it worked like a dream! getting speeds on average of 550mb/s, still was just as fast when it worked with my first z87 motherboard.
Cons: Had quite a hard time with my computer not booting up, though it was my ram or video card, I was quite surprised that the problem seems to stem from this wifi card.
The sad part is,the wifi card might of killed my first z87 motherboard, a Gigabyte z87-ud5h motherboard. I left the computer running for a while to talk to somebody and when I returned the computer was off and wouldn't post no matter what I did.
Again I'm not sure what did my motherboard in, but I am putting this here so people can at least not be surprised when something as bad as this happens.
Other Thoughts: For the time being, I'm leaving out the wifi card of my computer and resorting to cat5e cables (which from my distance to my router is pegged at 100mb/s)
It seems though it's not the cards fault but the new motherboards. I'm not sure though if a driver update would fix things as the problem stems from not booting up and seems to be a firmware or hardware issue. But prove me wrong!
Pros: Works 6 months still after a few months with the old 5.0.2a firmware. (Your mileage may vary)
Also Yay! New Firmware!
Cons: took a while to get the new firmware! and the download site was acting up!
Other Thoughts: Adata skipped over 5.0.4 firmware and went straight to 5.0.7. I really wanted though for 5.0.4 early because Trim was needed badly as I noticed things slowed down a bit since I got this drive last year. Though the 5.0.7 firmware apparently fixed a problem that could of plagued drives with older firmware much worse than a simple trim issue.READ FULL REVIEW
