Fairly easy install Collapsible antenna Includes Bluetooth (when plugged into header) Supports WiFi 6
Not as strong a signal as I had hoped
I disabled the wifi on my 5 year-old ASUS motherboard to see if this card would connect me faster after moving my computer to a different floor. The built-in wifi was getting about 80 Mbps with some slow downs here and there. This card seems to average around 110 Mbps and seems a bit more stable. So it's a bit faster, but not much...didn't improve much. It seems a pretty average card.

The card can be installed in 5 minutes. Windows will automatically download the drivers and you can update through Device Manager. My wi-fi speed test result was great. I'm getting the max speed of my ISP plan. The antenna is magnetic and hassle free to mount. Bluetooth connection is strong and working fine with a PS4 controller. WPA3 security features are working on Windows 10 version 2004.
Installation disc is useless. Do not use it. 9pin USB 2.0 header is required for bluetooth
Solid card for the price. There is no reason to pay extra for a card with a heat sink.

strong signal. did go from ~20 Mbps to 300+ Mbps! Easy setup. I took out my old card plugged this one in and restarted the computer. (win 10 insider fast) Win 10 takes care of drivers.
If you want to make use of the Bluetooth you need an open internal USB 2 connector
Good WiFi card for the money

Good antenna Good signal strength
ISP upgraded my gateway to a new combo device and my desktop's wireless data transfer (download) dropped from ~90% down to 40-50%. After comparing speed tests with my laptop's newer wifi card (Intel 9260 vs Gigabyte Intel 8260), testing over Ethernet, changing router settings, and moving my card's antennae around, I determined the desktop's card was the issue (rather than the new router, surprisingly).
With the AX916C I'm getting a solid 110% of my rated bandwidth (330 Mbps) with little to no fluctuation. I'm not sure if it's due to the card, the antennae, or if my old antennae was faulty but I'm now getting the speeds I pay my ISP for. My gateway only supports 802.11ac so I can't test Wifi 6, nor have I tested the 160Mhz band, but I don't really need to either since I'm maxing out my internet speeds (I don't do any LAN streaming, currently).
