Great price, installs easily if your computer will receive one of the two brackets provided, and setup is easy.
Good Reviews, Amazon

Summary: Installed a few days ago and is running fine. Two brackets were supplied, but my computer (Asus) needed a size in-between the two supplied. Also, my motherboard required this to go in upside down.
Summary: I read the negative reviews before I bought this. I am only a few meters from my wireless router so that could be why I have no trouble. I had trouble at another location, but the router was on a shelf blocked by a ceiling and walls. It worked for me, so I can't rate it low, and it was a good price.
Summary: The router (TP-Link TD-W8980) is about 15-20 Ft away from the computer using this card. Below are my wifi settings for each bands. 5 Ghz ==> Mode 802.11 a/n Mixed, Channel 149, Channel Width 40 Mhz 2.4 Ghz ==> Mode 802.11 b/g/n Mixed, Channel Auto, Channel Width 20 Mhz I Ran speed test via speedtest...
Summary: Pros - Haven't had the issue that I had with the TL-WN951N where the computer had to be rebooted every time it came out of standby mode due to the wireless connection having a red X through it. This card has been more solid than the TP-LINK.
Summary: I purchased this adapter to replace my old Linksys Wireless-G PCI adapter...I originally purchased the (also decent connectivity) Linksys/Cisco AE1000 USB adapter but, I wanted to eliminate my desktop clutter and remove the old card anyway.
Summary: I chose this based on the reviews. This model had the least percentage of 1 star review, for the money. This model does not have its own fan, if that is your impression, at least for me it was from reading about other models. I installed the adapter first, then installed the driver.
4/5 - I had small difficulty with this at first ...

Summary: 4/5 - I had small difficulty with this at first. The original drivers caused some weird problems where the adapter could not connect to secured networks. I used a program to fetch the newest driver, and now works well
