I've tried different drivers and different slots for this card, and it keeps blue-screening my Windows 7 build everytime I connect to a Wi-Fi network. Not impressed. :(

Fast, matches the build, works. I'm using a cat5e cable hooked up to my router so I don't use it, but it does work.

So far, so good. Great data throughput and range, and it looks cool. Currently, there isn't an official Win10 driver, but you can manually install the 8.1 driver and it'll work fine.

It needs better antennas, but the stability on it is fabulous.

Fast enough to max out my 100Mbps cable connection. No bluetooth like some other, lesser priced cards, so will ding it a little for that.

Currently my router is 15 meters away and running the cable isn't possible because of cable management :) so I order this one and downloading speed is 37.8Mbps compared to wired PC Setup 38.2Mbps. No glitch or lag while playing games which is really important for me.

I honestly chose this WiFi card because it has a black PCB.

I needed an adapter as my motherboard doesn't have a wifi card, and there are no ethernet ports in the space I keep my computer. I wanted TP-Link because I had purchased a router from them a little while back and it has been fantastic. Worked like a charm after installing the drivers.

Since my motherboard doesn't come with a build-in WiFi, Might aswell gonna purchase the adapter.Good connection.No lags plus,really like the black PCB.

For the 5 minutes I had this working it was fast...however, drivers then cause computer crash and was only able to reenter windows after physical removal of card. Now when trying to reinstall, hardware not recognized. Still in the works...
