Spolid card, but some issues...
Alvin from Vancouver writes:
- Adapter connected well to wireless, with strong signal which was stable, no issues with the basic Win8 drivers, though it seemed swapping to the newest official drivers, increased the connection strength
- Could not connect to 5ghtz upper band and could only connect 2.4Ghtz mode. Lower bands where connectable at 5ghtz, but 2.4/5Ghtz mix model had to be turned off, therefore verifying 5Ghtz only connection was not verifiable.
- An alright card, there are better buys for the price, the inability to connect to the upper 5ghtz band limits the card's potential as it's upper the 5Ghtz band which has the least interference.
Plug and play

- Plugged in to my hackintosh, booted, and it was instantly recognized. Connected to my 5.0 network in a matter of seconds, no drivers needed. Signal is great 2 rooms away.
- Very good improvement from using a seperate laptop's internet. Doubled my speed.

- Very strong signal - dies after 30-40m with lots of walls in between. If you want, you can increase the range if you mount longer antenas on it. PCI-E also keeps it streamlined with the today's needs.
- I could not get this to work in N mode in Linux, but the card is capable of N for sure. Giving 5/5 stars, however, this is the card you want to go with for sure!
- I built an access point on Linux with this and the signal is almost as good as a business access point that you buy for $150+. Not sure how it works on heavy traffic, but for the money and for what is does and how it does it, 5/5 stars. Awesome card!
Perfect for a Mac Pro or Hackintosh

- Installs in seconds in a Mac Pro or your Hacktosh and is recognised by OSX immediately. No drivers necessary. A++
Zach from Eckville writes:
- Easy install, done in 5 minutes or so. Excellent if you're about 1-2 rooms away from the router.
- Once you begin to get slightly away from the router, the connection speed fluctuates greatly from 0 bps to your full internet speed. It didn't recognize my router as it was fairly far away from me. So I used my range extender. Thing is is that my laptop was able to easily reach it.
- I recommend looking into something other than this.
