Strengths of the product

On Shaw 150 Mbps I get on my old laptop 148 Mbps speed faster than my old ethernet board with 100 Mbps limit.

Weaknesses of the product

Works only with Windows 7, 8 and 8.1. Pricy...

Additional Comments

I have a very fast router DLink and works very well with this Asus.

Why is everyone so mad?

Strengths of the product

- It streams well, Netflix is our main use - It's nice to look at - Easy install - Dual band compatible

Weaknesses of the product

- Microwave disrupts the signal sometimes, I think this may be normal with wireless cards - Nowhere to put the cap when wifi card is plugged in

Additional Comments

I'm not sure why so many people are upset with this product, we use it on a daily and haven't had any real issues with it. Perhaps a better wifi router is required with those users who are having issues?

Strengths of the product

Easy to install, works for Facebook. (But that is about it)

Weaknesses of the product

Can't hold a constant connection, barley get through a youtube video. Don't even try playing a game on it. Te4sted with both USB 2.0 and 3.0, as well as 2.4 broadband and 5G.

Additional Comments

It just doesn't work. after trying a bunch of USB wireless cards, got to say they just DON'T WORK.

Awesome, but USB 3.0 functionality...

Strengths of the product

Upgraded from an older Asus adapter to this, am happy to say my download speeds have increased by more than double!

Weaknesses of the product

The USB 3.0 support is absolute garbage. Took a few minutes just to load a single webpage...

Additional Comments

Does the job well if you don't plan to use USB 3.0!

Reviewer below probably got a bad one, you can get one of these with confidence.

Strengths of the product

Fast and lag free wifi that works with the new wireless AC standard. The software is fairly easy to set up and allows you to select a different channel or band on the same network (useful if you download a lot, or play games on notoriously laggy but fast downloading university wifi). Design looks quite nice. If you don't like the software you can also use it through the windows built in wifi utility.

Weaknesses of the product

It's a bit big for a USB adapter but it has a long range and it's fast so I think it's reasonable. Easy to lose the cap.

Additional Comments

Had this guy for over a week now, I have no issues with mine. Sometimes you get a bad one. Being able to use different channels on the same network could be a huge plus.

Strengths of the product

good when it works works good the first day

Weaknesses of the product

After the first day I started losing connection and then it happens all the time and just ended up buying a new wireless pci card

Additional Comments

Don't buy just a waste of time returning it. And not worth it for the price
