Works almost out of the box, instant results with Ubuntu linux
Have not found any yet
Ordered the DWA-552 PCI WiFi card from NCIX and it arrived within 48 hours. Unboxed and installed within 2 minutes and on the air with 3 minutes on the Windows side.

On the Ubuntu side of the house it ran right away - no drivers to install or anything.

Good product - instant results - very, very happy.

Experience: 3 Weeks

none. Zero. Zip. nada.
Terrible reception, slow speeds and I suspect it to be the cause as to why my PC was getting random stutters.
AVOID. Terrible connectivity and slow speeds. I tested two other laptops in my room beside the network adapater and they outperform this. Do not buy.

Experience: 2 Years
CRAZY LOOKING! using it on my 4 year pc which doesnt have wifi but only ethernet and needed it in the living where no ethernet cable is present. easily driver installation, doesnt like to drop  wifi signal, this is very good overall

Experience: 2 Months
 Verified Owner
good signals
need some space behind computer for the 3 antenna
Good product. Signal is strong and it's perfect for someone that don't want to install cable. I use it in my garage and I can connect to my house WiFi without problem.

Experience: 1 Weeks

Good quality wireless Card
None so far
Got this for a budget build that had to use wireless, gets signal from other side/floor of house. Card's easy enough to use and had 0 zero issues so far, price of $40 doesn't break the bank either, would buy again if needed.

Experience: 7 Days
works great like advertised.
can't think of any.
Great product for it's price point would defiantly recommend purchasing this item.

Experience: 2 Years
Good range and good bandwidth
Occasionally disconnects(probably driver failure)
It works well for data transfer but i don't recommend it for competitive gaming because once in a while(pretty rarely) the adapter stops working and only a reboot will fix it. The other issue i have had with this card is that about 2% of the time it doesn't work when i start up my computer and that is also solved with a reboot.
Other than that it has great range and great speeds but I would buy & try another card before making the judgment of whether i would buy this card again.
(Im running the dLink's latest driver(the one that came out in 2010 btw) on win7x64)

Experience: 1 Months
Ive been using this item for a while and i got no problem so far
I have nothing to say this item i like it so much that I might buy another one. Its a good price and good quality

Experience: 2 Years
- Works
- Fairly good reception, even with a radiator in the way
- None that I can think of
Works like it should. Have one dwa 552 and one dwad 556. Just ordered another. I've never had issues with either one. I have 4/5 bars on the main floor with my wirless router upstairs (dir 655).
