AC wifi and bluetooth work great. But widi is typically buggy. I hope someday widi/miracast can be as good as Airplay.

This adapter is awesome. Gets me 120 Mb/s when I pay for 105Mb/s through my entire house (different floor, other side of the house). Ping is in the 30ms range, which is a little high, but I can live with that.

BTW, the bluetooth polarity on the cable seems to now be labeled correctly (something earlier reviews had said was an issue).

Intel has the best Wifi card period

Upper-mainstream Wi-Fi card + bluetooth. If you just need good internet then this is the card for you. Bluetooth connectivity is a big plus. You won't need to worry about getting a separate USB bluetooth adapter if you want to connect other bluetooth peripherals.

Solid connection, no issues so far. Bluetooth works well too. Note that Bluetooth requires an internal connection to one of the USB headers on your motherboard, so you need to ensure your motherboard has one spare USB header. My motherboard had three USB headers and they're all in use now - Two for the front of the case (1 x USB 3.1 and 1 x USB 2.0) and one for the Bluetooth connectivity of this wifi card.

Loving this wireless card so far. It is super fast and is soo much better than some of my older wireless cards. One thing to note is the bluetooth functionality that comes along with this card can only be used if you connect the cable to one of your front usb 2.0 headers on your motherboard. Doing so means you will loose the functionality of 2 of your front USB ports on your case. Not a big deal but just something to let you guys know as i did not know about it untill i was assembling the computer.

Wireless PCIe | 08-31-2016 | Amazon: Used a miniPCIe 7260 with a Fenvi PCIe adapter, Asus 2T2R magnetic antenna remote mount, provides 250 to 500 Mbps to a Nighthawk R7000 router. Also provides Bluetooth.

I did have a scare during installation where my Windows wasn't recognizing the device, giving an error code that "Device does not exist," but found that in addition to the specific driver that the software/Device Manager will install for this device, you also need Intel's wireless adapter driver, which was never automatically detected or recommended! Just in case anyone thinks theirs is broken. Otherwise, works just fine. Can't compare speed to other devices, but I get identical speedtest results as my iMac. Not the cheapest adapter around, but this one's got a good design with the external antenna, in which you can either lay it flat on the desk or use the included adhesive peg to hang it off the wall, rather than be stuck with antenna on the back of your tower.
