Pros: Pros : good drivers from Intel which work great. Bluetooth a bonus for me, I actually didn't realize it was on the card as well. Heatsink makes it look sexy. Low-profile bracket included, antenna seems nice (neato magnetic base, wasn't expecting that).

Cons: Cons : Driver CD is worthless. It's one of those mini discs, which don't work well in some computers. At least mine could read it, but the only thing on it was one giant file in .kz format, which I had to download a program from China to open. By the time I went thru all that trouble, I find out the drivers are nothing but the standard Intel drivers two versions out of date.

Overall Review: I was either fortunate that my computer actually had an Internet connection or maybe just lucky that Windows 10 came with a set of drivers for the Intel AC 8265 wireless chipset. If you're installing in an earlier version of Windows you might not be so lucky. Minus one egg for the unusable driver mini CD, otherwise I'm rather happy with it so far.
