Edimax EW-7822UAC Wireless AC1200 Dual-band USB 3.0 Adapter, Complies to Draft 802.11ac Standard, Delivers More Than Two Times Faster Wi-Fi Speed Than 802.11n, With Adjustable Foldaway Antenna for Optimum High Performance
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: USB 3.0

Cons: Stop Error BUGCODE_NDIS_DRIVER in Windows 8.1

Other Thoughts: I purchased this wanting a USB 3.0 wireless adapter and all worked okay (some issues, but at least it worked) with Windows 8. I tried to upgrade to Windows 8.1, but kept receiving an error message "BUGCODE_NDIS_DRIVER". I changed my wireless adapter (to a Netgear A6200), and the upgrade went smoothly. I then tried plugging this adapter in again (after unplugging the Netgear). As soon as Windows 8.1 recognized it, I received the same error, but as a blue screen error. After unplugging and uninstalling all previous software/drivers for this device, I attempted once again to plug it in to reinstall the latest (though same version) drivers. Still received the same error. Decided to stop banging my head against the wall and will continue with Netgear. I'll keep checking for driver updates, but when you consider just plugging it in wreaks havoc with Windows 8.1, I think I'll just purchase a USB 3.0 adapter from a better reviewed, more reputable manufacturer. Unfortunately, this has cost way too much time and money.

StarTech 4 Port PCI Express PCIe SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Controller Card Adapter with SATA Power - Low Profile Model PEXUSB3S4V
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Good Reviews

Cons: Requires Case Modification

Other Thoughts: As pancho mentioned, the vertical orientation of the plugs makes a case modification mandatory. If you do not have dividers between the card slots on the back of your case, you'll be set. But if you have dividers, as most do, add extra time for your build. I won't be installing this card until I have the time to modify my case.

1 out of 5 eggs Needs Windows 8 Support 11/27/2012

This review is from: EDIMAX HP-5101K 500Mbps Nano PowerLine Adapter Kit Up to 500Mbps

Pros: Hardware is easy to install and uninstall. Just plug it (them) in.

Cons: It appears there is no Windows 8 support. The included disc attempts to install WinPcap 4.1.2, but fails, stating "This version of Windows is not supported......" Though the lights did glow, there was no connectivity. I tried pressing the group/reset button as instructed in the manual, but still no connection even after reboot.

Other Thoughts: Obviously I'm not a networking genius, but the installation of this product needs more support with drivers/software for Windows 8, and/or better instructions.
