Pros: Looks great.
Love the multi-antenna adapter
Great speeds when it works
Cons: A bit costly, but that's to be expected.
Stopped working correctly after 2 months of use
Other Thoughts: I was extremely excited to pair this card with my Netgear R6300 router to utilize the 5Ghz channel, and it worked extremely well for about a month. After a month though it started to give me a few hiccups and has gotten progressively worse as time has gone on.
After multiple pathping tests this card is taking roughly 30-1300ms to get its signal to my router where as my other network computers (roughly 8 of them) are taking a mere 1-4ms in comparison. This has resulted in my having to connect my old USB adapter to be able to use it with the performance that I need.
Pros: Decent sized
I love that I can wrap the cable around the casing.
Cons: Could be larger
Adapter to HDD has become a little loose.
Other Thoughts: I love this thing. I had a WD 1TB external HD before this and after it falling off my PC it stopped working. Knowing that I'm a little rough on stuff like this I opted for this model, and I've loved every minute of it.
It's been extremely reliable, sustained multiple drops, and is extremely great on the go. Being able to keep my cable attached right to the drive is fantastic as I'm really never at a risk to lost just the USB cable unless I lose the whole package.
I use this roughly 3-4 times a day on different computers every time, and through the use the adapter that connects into the drive has become a hair loose. The USB cable is also quite stiff so it does create a little torque to get it to sit where I'd like it to sit but as far as cons go that's it.
I couldn't recommend this higher in all honesty. I've used it fairly extensively, and it's been there for me on those clumsy drops of mine as well.
