Slow wifi card, I ended up just rewiring my wifi modem to the computer desk and connected with a cat6. At least it still has bluetooth right? Nope, doesn't work with my AMD platform, updated drivers, no bluetooth drivers available and after reading online a ton of people have the same issue with no solution. Waste of money in my opinion, unless your looking for a cheap card to do light internet browsing with.

Plug and Play for win 10
none so far, I bought 2 and the one in my older system worked perfectly the other in the newer set up didn't work to well, kept disconnecting, most likely A defective part.
Would recommend for older PCs from my experience.

Same as title. Was plug in play even in my scrap parts pc.
If you are going for slick cable management hard to hide the ugly usb header, at least on full atx build.
No clue about outdated drivers/no support. Haven’t had any issues that wouldn’t also be present with budget card.

-good price -wireless AC capable -based off of Intel WiFi card (Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 3168) -should in theory be able to swap with other laptop wireless cards if needed -fast speed
-no driver CD (nobody uses these anymore anyways but if you don't have windows 10 that has drivers built in and this is your only computer you may have issues getting the driver off the internet/ may need another PC to download drivers) -not usable in low profile or small form factor computers -MSI's supplied drivers are outdated -Bluetooth requires an extra USB header ( no surprise here pretty much every WiFi card that I've seen that has Bluetooth requires this but this is something you should consider if you are using a pre built computer where they may not have any other USB headers)
A great WiFi card for the price, this is more of a WiFi adapter board in that all it is doing is adapting a PCI express x1 slot to work with a laptop wireless card, when using this card I would highly recommend to avoid using any MSI software for the card because all the hardware doing the WiFi and Bluetooth is a stock Intel Wireless AC 3168 and the drivers off the Intel website are newer and will work better than the older ones supplied on msi's website, overall the only thing MSI here is the board that adapts the laptop wireless card to work on a desktop and you are pretty much guaranteed to get a solid experience with any modern Intel based wireless card as long as your operating system supports it. For speed I was able to get 172Mbps down and 16Mbps up, it will vary for you based off of where your router is and how many rooms are between you and the wireless signal / ISP but Intel's chipset advertises it has having a maximum speed of M33 mbps.

Easily replaceable card Stable Connection
My inexpensive laptop from 2015 with a Qualcomm wireless card easily hits 150Mbps on 5Ghz wireless. This card from MSI peaked at 33Mbps. I tried everything to get it to go faster, but it will not. I compared results with the laptop and desktop in the same room. Maybe I'll swap the wireless card from the laptop into this MSI adapter and see if there are any improvements.

Drivers are available for this card. Windows 7/8.1/10 compliant AC speeds for a cheap price
WiFi 5, so it will not going to work as WiFi 6 (802.11ax)
Drivers are available right on the website for MSI so I'm not sure what issues the previous reviewer had. if you type in the model on Google and up comes MSI's website, and then you can download the drivers.
