    A surprisingly noticeable upgrade to the wifi on my lap top, very fast, good looking wifi card with dedicated antennae that look great as well

    Since I don't have an Ethernet cable running through my basement and into my office, I was forced to go with a wireless solution. I'm quite satisfied with this product. I'm able to get pretty good speeds, and the design goes well with the rest of my PC.

    I like the dash of color and it worked right out of the box.

    This Wifi card would have been perfect if I could install it where it should go. Yet lacking any pictures online, there is a metal cube thing that protrudes on the top side of the unit, making contact with my GPU fan if its installed in the PCE slot. :(

    Used this for 2 years now, Never had any issues with connection related to this adapter. Definitely happy with this purchase. On a side note I could have bought a slightly better motherboard with an integrated wifi adapter, I liked the antenna this came with though.

    My brother can not have ethernet where he lives, so we needed a WiFi card for him. It works great.

    from completed build My Racing Rig

    One of the few that had a magnetic, free standing antenna. Handles both 2.4 and 5.0 Ghz and max speed ratings exceed what is currently available in my area by a bunch.
