Summary: It has not worked correctly since it was installed. Do not recommend this product. Not happy with it at all have tried it on several systems running different operating systems and it still failed. No help with the manufacturer in resolving the issue.
Summary: Thought it was a great idea for one of our desk computer when I saw it, but it did not always work and would disconnect several times in an hour or so.The router on my network is a Linksys AC1750. Do not have issues with other wireless devices with built in hardware.
Performance is great (paired it with the linksys wrt1900ac router)

Summary: I'll give it a 4. Performance is great (paired it with the linksys wrt1900ac router). Throughput for large transfers is 3-4 times what I was getting with my 802.11n setup. On Windows 8.1 the total software install caused lot's of issues though. Every time I logged in, or switched to a different user, the card would disconnect and sometimes not reconnect until I physically unplugged and replugged the device.
Summary: I can confirm at the date of this review all the negative comments about this adapter are still legit. I've messed with this thing for the past month and am giving up. The main issues are: will not detect wireless networks once plugged in or upon system reboot (leaving you to repeatedly unplug and plug the thing in) , random variations in speeds, NO SUPPORT. I agree with other comments that QoS packet scheduling is flawed in it's current state.
Summary: After having problems with my wifi card that is built in to my desktop PC, I decided to try one of these Linksys AC1200 USB adapters. Installation was a breeze. It paired up to my Netgear wireless 'N' router/modem combo without any issues. All I had to do was insert the CD ROM, plug the USB adapter into the USB 2.0 or 3.0 drive on the front of my PC and follow the instructions on the screen.
Summary: Not all 802.11ac dual band USB adapters are the same as I thought the Linksys Wireless Mini USB AC 580 adapter would be more convenient than a larger Belkin unit; but I've discovered that antenna size has it's advantages and the Linksys AC 580 gives not much better performance than a Belkin N150 Micro USB adapter. I can't recommend anyone who has a 802.11g or -11n buy this as the Belkin N150 Micro is only $12-15.00 and gives the same level of performance.
Summary: Using the AE6000 I a full signal connection to my router from about 200 feet away through one wall. The biggest downside for me is speed the AR6000 top connection is 430Mbps, which is giving me transfers to my NAS of 20MB/s. The transfer rate is decent, but considering I get 55-60MB/s with a wired connection it's a big trade off. Wish this could connect at 867Mbps like the Netgear or D-link can for the same price.
Summary: I purchased this adapter for a gaming computer from a larger super-store. I thought it would work very well for the high price, but there were major flaws for myself. The adapter does provide good range and speed BUT it DOES NOT work with Steam. I am not able to download games with this adapter, and I've read other reviews showing the same problem. I have had other troubles with shifty connections to online(multiplayer) servers as well, causing me to crash fairly often.
Pros: Good speed, works well at a distance.
Cons: Has major issues with online PC game downloading and playing.
