Great Upgrade for a Dell E6400

Summary: Installed one of these cards into my Dell Latitude E6400 running Windows 8 Pro. No driver updates needed, it was recognized on the first boot. I immediately had a 150M wireless-N connection where before I could get only 54M wireless-G. Plus it added Bluetooth capability. I verified the latter with a wireless speaker. Everything worked flawlessly and as expected. Well, one minor exception.
Summary: Originally when I purchased this it was nothing but problems in my desktop and I think it sat in the drawer for about a year. The vendor did agree to take it back but I was in the end too lazy. I had on a whim looked up to see if they had any new drivers and to my surprise they had released a new driver suite and now the darn little thing works great. I should clarify and say I have a Dell laptop and it always worked in that but had a lot of issues in my desktop.
Summary: I received this card in a timely manner (despite getting many of my Amazon products in a timely manner, I am subjected to main office hours of operation and of course a work schedule that limits my ability to receive my mail at certain times). I picked my package up from my main office and it was packaged well. It was a bubble manila envelope which was WAY more than enough packaging for this adapter which is about 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch roughly.
Summary: I replaced a standard WiFi card in my laptop with this card and now I have bluetooth built in. It seems to work seemlessly with Windows, as long as you install the proper drivers. If I remember correctly, I had to download the driver from Intel's website and install it manually, but I haven't had any issues at all with it. I use a Logitech MX Revolution Bluetooth mouse with it.
Summary: My wifi/Bluetooth card went out in my laptop so we purchased this one. Once it was installed it responded to my wireless mouse better than the original one that came in the laptop when it was purchased. I do not know a lot about the technical lingo of the card but I do know that is works well and is a good value.
Summary: This is a great little upgrade for a laptop. My laptop did not contain a build in bluetooth chip and this solved the issue. However I was unable to use this as HP blocked it at a BIOS level, even though it said it was supported.
