Cons

Summary
Bought this for a low end gaming computer. Tried both windows and package drivers. The connectivity was always in and out so it was hard to play games.

Experience: 1 Days

Pros

5ghz is very fast, similar to connecting with ethernet cable.
comes with a smaller bracket
Cons
antennas are very loose, feels cheap quality.
only able to connect with 2.4ghz until I install drivers (windows 10 64bit).
Summary
Awesome speed with 5ghz (if you can get it working). Antennas are a mess and they dont stay pointing upwards, so they are all pointing downwards now. Not really a concern for me at the moment because my pc is very close to the router. I would get it exchanged but too much hassle for something that does not really bother me.

Little bit of connection issues with 2.4ghz but 5ghz fixed everything.

Summary
The card is fast, maintains a stable connection, and was easy to install. No complaints. A great buy at the sale price with rebate.

Pros

Nothing, really. I had to give it a three star, because it wasn't ordered on my account.
Cons
Range is terrible, driver support is terrible. Not worth it.
Summary
I got a PCE-N53 ages back because I was tired of having a mediocre connection. By 'mediocre' I mean loading images on webpages was impossible.

First issue was the lack of Windows 8 drivers. It took me a while to get a driver that worked. Even when I had, this device was unable to connect to the internet. It wasn't even performing as well as my little USB CISCO adapter. Oh, then there was the 8.1 update. This device IS NOT compatible with Windows 8.1, 8.1 won't boot when it's installed.

The main issue, is that I can't connect to my network. I have the best drivers installed, and even trying with alternates I had the same issues. It won't connect to the 5GHZ network at all, and claims to be connected to the 2.4GHZ, but shows it as 'limited' and I can't ping the router. I tried antennae extension cables, networking more routers together to get them closer to my PC, and even using a metal bowl as a directional dish (don't judge me!). Now I'm using an old cellphone with USB tethering to connect to the internet, and I am again able to load web pages with images.

Worst adapter ever. Seriously considered buying 300FT worth of CAT6 cable.

Pros

Great signal quality on the 5GHz band (what I bought it for)
No software bugs
Great reliability
Cons
4myrebate (the MIR handler) rejected the rebate even though no terms were violated/incomplete
Summary
This is a good card for the $32 price (should be $22, pity 4myrebate denied the rebate because they changed their own terms out on me, mailed them receipt and they said it also required shipping packing list, despite the very visible "receipt, invoice, OR shipping receipt" on the form). However, the card works very well- stays at the promised 300Mbps on the 5GHz band all the time. The connection to my router through 2 walls and 8m is stable and not faulty. There are also no software bugs, and has not stopped working, ever.

Pros

It works and signal is good
Cons
Range isn't too strong
Summary
Works Perfectly. Highly Recommended for others.

Experience: 10 Days

Pros

Inexpensive, great range, good signal quality
Cons
Antenna are slightly larger than expected.
Summary
I purchased this without reading the other reviews, and when I read them while waiting for this card to arrive, I got very worried. Fortunately, this card works great, and I didn't have the problems that others apparently ran into. Not breaking the antenna may have helped. So what can be said that isn't in the pros cons? It's a wireless card, it's cheap, it works, even on the band less traveled on my dual band router.

This card is in my HTPC, which I keep in a stereo cabinet, the size of the antenna required me to change the card slot to take advantage of the hole in the back of the cabinet. Not really a concern for the average person buying this card, but it added two minutes to my day.

Pros

None
At least it's booted up..
Cons
All of what you can think
Summary
Ok...I was able to have a connection..so that a start...but who want a link unstable was going to 50 kb/s to 500 kb/s...even if it's was stable at 500 that way not enough.

Test speed show 2 mb/s. On my Imac and macbook air and macbook pro(2006) i was getting 26 mb/s.

After raging at it..i decide to turn it off and use the on board Wifi of my MOBO P8z77-Pro. AHHHHHHH! Back to my 26 mb/s.

Dont buy that...I just dont know how check for my money back...so might keep it for my eternet connection when i move the modem.
