Unpleasant experience

Pros: Price.

Cons: Oh, where to begin. The card was easy to install and seemed to work without a hitch for the first few weeks. Afterwards, though, it's been a complete nightmare. The card has been connecting to my network, but not allowing me internet access and recently it's just stopped discovering and connecting to the network altogether. It disrupts any music that I happen to be playing with loud, jarring stuttering and this seems to accompany a general system slowdown; disconnecting the computer from the internet cleared these issues immediately.

Overall Review: I bought this as part of my first build, with the goal of replacing my finicky laptop as my main computer. Instead, I'm still using the laptop because I can't do much on the new desktop without the internet. I'll probably end up replacing it with a USB adapter; I haven't had any problems with those that I've used in the past.
