Summary: No surprises here, and no issues. Installation is typical for a PCI card, and the little antennae screw on snugly. Unlike the last N adapter I purchased (which got sent back to the mfg), the antenna jacks don't fall off... Solid and reliable; can't complain.
Summary: The wireless adapter installed fine, it went in to my windows 7 machine just fine. Nothing extra special needed for the installation. The card works fine, detects our network with nothing extra special. I would recommend it!
Summary: I installed this wireless card before installing windows 7 64 bit. Windows recognized the card and installed what seemed to be the appropriate drivers. However, my computer would loose wireless signal frequently, especially during large downloads. Approximately 10 days passed and I had intentions of returning the card during this time I continued to do windows updates and eventually, without my noticing at first, the card started to work well.
Summary: I actually installed it today and windows7 detected the card with no problem. Most likely this is the best deal. The price is great and the card works great so far. Device drivers was easy to install and ran "update device drivers" with no problem in the properties. As a note. The card is backwards compatible with wireless b and g. However it only takes wireless N at 2.4GHz NOT 5GHz. Why this could be a big deal and not a big deal?
Works great, fast, but documentation is a bit thin

Summary: This works great in my high end homebuilt Win7 ultimate machine, but the documentation is a bit thin and the drivers were not Win7 (probably addressed by now) and I had to spend a bit of time finding them on the website. It does what it is supposed to do, does it well, and the price was very attractive. I'd say, if your technologically inclined, buy it, if you're not, spend more and get a different solution that is a major brand.
Excerpt: Купил TP-LINK TL-WIN851N, так как пропали ASUS. Доволен. Буду очень доволен, если NET перестанет пропадать, но это не факт, что виновна плата...
Pros: 1. Установка оборудования. Те кто пишут не ставьте дрова с диска могут ошибаться: поставил дрова с сайта "Официала", долго не мог понять, чего NET тормозит. Переставил дрова с приданного диска: все летает (именно ЛЕТАЕТ). 2. Сигнал стабильно хороший-отличный 3. Две антенны.
Cons: 1. интернет может пропасть в любую минуту, примерно раз-два за вечер. Лечится просто нажатием подключить ( может WiFi - роутер дурит, пока не разбирался)
