Strengths of the product

no driver issues worked first time BT works Acceptable signal

Weaknesses of the product

none

Additional Comments

Works as intended. Wired connection was 300mb/s up, 300mb/s down, and 13ms ping. Wireless connection was 200mb/s up, 80mb/s down and 18ms ping. Machine is about 40ft from router and 1 level up, so some obstructions for the signal. Definitely great product for the price. No issues at with getting card up and running. BT works flawlessly.

Strengths of the product

Bought from MemX. Used for Linux (multiple distributions) on 5Ghz WiFi and 1 Gig (not a typo...) Wan network. Works extremely well including flawless Bluetooth adapter (cellphone, speakers from LG and Bose). Got more than 300 Mbits on Wifi connection. Card is using Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless 8265 / 8275 (driver by Intel part of Linux kernel). Very pleased much better than TP-Link junk...

Weaknesses of the product

Nothing.

Additional Comments

A good buy for Linux (I have not used Windows for 20 years...

Works great and at a decent price

Strengths of the product

Virtually a PnP install (no additional drivers required with Win 10). The USB outlet on the card works with my keyboard / mouse wireless adapter.

Weaknesses of the product

None so far.

Additional Comments

Transfer rates are not too shabby. Sufficient for Internet browsing and most video streaming. Using the 2nd internal USB connection (USB 1314) on an ASUS Maximus VIII Hero MB and the Bluetooth works without issue.

just works

Strengths of the product

very strong wireless connectivity no hiccups the antenna cand be moved around easily and is magnetic so it could be attached to the side of the pc

Weaknesses of the product

when on wired connection, the speed is absolutely depressing. but again, might be my motherboard sharing bandwidth with another component that i am unaware of.

Additional Comments

I have internet 300 from shaw and this works and keeps up beautifully. i get amazing speeds and have had no issues with it, WHILE ON WIRELESS. the real issue comes in to play when i plug in the ethernet cable to have wired conenction. then i get about 1/10 of the speed. I've tried it a few times and just gave up on the ethernet connection part. I only use wireless which has been extremely well thus far. of course this might be due to the fact that my motherboard is sharing bandwidth with something else and that's why? i'm not entirely certain of it, nor have i ever felt the need to look it up because the wireless connection is absolutely strong (but i also have my router in the same room as the pc) not to mention on wireless, there is one less cable to worry about.

Wifi works well, bluetooth not so much

Strengths of the product

Wifi works in windows 10 without drivers, antenna has magnetic base which sticks to computer cases easily

Weaknesses of the product

the bluetooth would blue screen the computer, had to disable it

Additional Comments

if all you need is wireless then it's good.

Plug and play, everything works awesome

Strengths of the product

Bluetooth and wireless networking all in one Easy to set up and use

Weaknesses of the product

Additional Comments

I've no idea why people are having problems with this. I've installed half a dozen of these and they were all plug and play. This time installation took literally only a few minutes. I opened my case, inserted the carded, connected the USB to the first mobo header I saw empty, closed the case, connected the antenna, put the magnet base of the antenna on the side of my case, turned on my computer, installed Windows 10 Pro, and everything has been working perfectly ever since. This was a clean Windows install, but I can imagine the same experience on an existing install. Windows 10 just works.

Great for WiFi

Strengths of the product

Able to get 125 MBps through several walls and down one floor from an older TP Link Archer C7 and Shaw Internet 150. Windows installed the drivers automatically. Bluetooth connected fine.

Weaknesses of the product

Additional Comments

Pleasantly surprised with this card. Great price and no issues so far. I picked up this card at the Calgary NW location and found out later I got Revision v4.3 with the updated Intel 8265 card.

One month later...

Strengths of the product

Wifi still works...

Weaknesses of the product

Bluetooth, the thing I bought it for, struggled to work. After changing the header to USB0 instead of USB1 it worked for a little more than a month. Now, regardless what I do, updated drivers, downgraded drivers, etc. bluetooth just won't work.

Additional Comments

Super disappointed with this. I just wanna use my bluetooth headphones around the house while connected to my computer. I thought this card would let that happen, apparently I was wrong. Will be returning tomorrow and hopefully I can get a more stable solution to my bluetooth needs.
