Bad experience 7/2/2019 9:40:55 PM

Pros: Nothing positive to contribute.

Cons: Shipping was terrible. It took a month to get it. Once I did get it the unit was sketchy. It needed to be inserted like 8 times in order for my Laptop to detect it. Worked for 90 minutes and stopped. When I removed it the main antenna port came off the board because it was soldered on by Helen Keller (refurbished solder job), however alternate port solder looked OEM. I reverted to my old atheros WiFi card. Don’t waste your time people.

Excellent Dual Band Upgrade 4/29/2019 12:27:46 PM

Pros: -Great connectivity on 2.4 and 5.0 GHz connections
-Comes with replacement hardware (screws)
-Easy replacement

Cons: -No cons as of yet

Overall Review: -Use on a Lenovo device will likely result in an 1802 Error for an unauthorized network card but this can be fixed and is not the sellers fault at all but may be useful information for some users.

Works great!(after a bit of hacking) 9/22/2018 5:50:34 PM

Pros: 5Ghz AC wireless - a nice upgrade to older laptops that have 2.4Ghz only.
433Mbps is fairly decent for the form factor with 2 antenna.

Cons: Will not work in every laptop due to laptop manufacture security/whitelisting. May require BIOS modding or electrical taping. In my case see other>>>

Overall Review: My unit did not work "out of the box" in my Acer Aspire 5552g but after some research I found out how to make it work! Some may consider using a "hacked BIOS" in-lieu pin covering to make it work but that comes at a risk of bricking your laptop or getting malware from shady websites. The option I took was electrical tape.
All I had to do was tape up pins 46 and 51. This makes perfect sense for my laptop. Pin 46 controls Bluetooth LED which my laptop doesn't have. Pin 51 controls W_Disable#2 which, according to the whitepaper, "Resets the whole BT core while asserted." That one sounds like it's only needed if the module were to be "hot-plugged" but since it's PCI-E and the laptop doesn't support hot-plugging I taped that one off as well. I'm probably wrong about that but it works for me so far.
To each their own! Taping pin 51 may be unnecessary but it works and this whole experiment took me about 2 hours so I'm happy with it as is :) FYI, pins 36 and 38 control the BT USB. If you need to disable BT from the module those are the pins to tape.

Asus K55VM Replacement 6/1/2018 5:11:56 PM

Pros: The card itself is an improvement over the last mini pcie I had. It has worked flawlessly since installing and provided excellent connection. My recommendation is researching if this card will work with your current device. The bluetooth capability does not work with my laptop and is stated on Intels website that custom installs may not support all the features. The manufacturer is the responsible party for that.

Cons: None as of yet; I will update after completing wireless testing.

Overall Review: The reviews that blame the card not working should contact the laptop manufacturer for support. BIOS and software support is different on laptops.

Useless to me; neither notebook accepted it 3/7/2018 10:01:05 AM

Pros: Well packaged, timely shipping, excellent price.

Cons: Neither Lenovo B590 nor hp530 notebooks would accept this network card. Both detected an 'unauthorized network card' at boot, halted system, and insisted upon the card's removal. Both notebooks now operate on their original network cards. This is sneaky, underhanded, greed-enabled BIOS treachery committed under the transparent excuse of 'security'. The seller is not at fault. The item would cost more time and money to return than it is worth. Perhaps I will find someone who can use it.

Overall Review: I would not recommend this product to others *unless* they can verify that the card is in their notebook manufacturer's (or rather, labeled vendor's) whitelist. This information can be very difficult to obtain. Trial and error appears to be the chief method of discovery.
