Very poor

Benjamin M., Newegg
8 November 2013
  • Summary: There are better, cheaper alternatives out there
  • Pros: Connects to weak signals from distance No bloatware (one program, but works well) Plug and play
  • Cons: Stopped working after 6MO, RMA, 2nd one died after 6 mo again. While it was working would disconnect every so often, then reconnect. Made streaming video/gaming impossible.

Blowed Up

Kristina T., Newegg
11 January 2013
  • Pros: Got here quick
  • Cons: Installed in one computer and got a NMI memory error. Thought it was system, installed in 2nd system...same same. Looked on internet and found many with same problem and no solutions that worked. Not impressed.

Great Card

Efrain O., Newegg
2 October 2012
  • Summary: Since there's no clear description in the specs in reference of the type of connector this card uses I had some difficulties to find the right cable extension, since there are different types.
  • Pros: Excellent performance any problem at all, easy to install, no signal issues, just perfrct.
  • Cons: Because of the structural conditions I needed to buy an extra antena with extension cable to get it closer to the window for better reception.

  • Summary: My Build: Asus Sabertooth 990fx The Ultimate Force Motherboard AMD Zambezi 3.6ghz(3.8turbo)Quad-Core CPU- Black Edition EVGA GeForce 550ti(Fermi) Ripjaws 8GB (2x4gb) RAM NZXT Phantom 410 mid-ATX chassis
  • Pros: It has yet to assasinate anyone I am emotionally attached to.
  • Cons: Absolutely useless. Picked up barely any signal, with brief (1-2 second) spikes, on a network that 3 other devices (older laptop, iPad and iPhone) all connected to perfectly.

Junk

Robert F., Newegg
17 March 2012
  • Summary: Very disappointing card
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Signal jumps SO much, 20-120 Mbs. I can put my wife' laptop right next to it and everything with her signal is fine at 150 Mbs steady. Downloads freeze before they finish. I finally got fed up and moved the computer next to the router and hardwired it just to downoad drivers and updates.

Wonderful

iglow, Amazon
9 February 2012
  • Summary: The D-Link DWA-525 Wireless-N 150 Desktop PCI Adapter was a wonderful purchase. I have had no problems with it except for its compatibility with Ubuntu (but I think that's my fault). The signal is at a fair level even across the house where my computer resides.
