Rated 4 out of 5 by MOOTB00T More reliable but not as fast as Asus PCE-AC66
I bought this card to replace Asus PCE-AC66, which continually dropped connections to my router.
My house is Victorian and the bricks can cause havoc with Wi-Fi signals. Since I have bought this card I have not had any dropped connections.
I use this in conjunction with Asus RT-AC68U router. I am on Virgin Media and have an internet connection of 120mbs, I also use a file server.
I have noticed that the upload speed to my server are less than they were on my previous card, but the download speed to the server are greater. Typically when transferring files I get approximately 200 - 250 Mbps download and 180-200 Mbps upload. This is on the 5GHz band.
When using the internet I can easily use the complete bandwidth. Link speeds to the router, for me are typically, 700-877 Mbps.
I would agree with the reviewer that stated the Wi-Fi utility was not that great, personally I would prefer to have just the drivers, but the product is easy to install and seems to be very reliable, good enough to play online games.

Rated 5 out of 5 by t3chguy Great Quality, Perfect Functionality
I have only had the opportunity to play with this device with a 2.4GHz Network, soon will also use it on a 5GHz Wireless, but apart from some minor disconnection issues at the start, which could maybe be caused by Windows 8.1, the worst thing about the Hardware and Software combination is the taskbar icon for the WLAN Suite, apart from that everything is of the highest quality, which you would expect from Asus. Great Speeds, Great Range, Great Quality and if you are willing to pay for it then it is definitely more than worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MerkageTurk best wireless ac adapter
The best wireless ac adapter, speeds of 1900, although the router needs to be compatible. Amazing and fast service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeettak Fantastic wireless adapter.
This is a fantastic wireless card. Installed easily and loaded software, scanned for signal, connected, then fast wireless browsing.
What else do you need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NottsNick Easy to fit, great performance
I bought this so that i could use broadband on my computer upstairs; my router is connected to the BT socket downstairs, and I was connected to that by an ethernet cable. I found this product easy to fit (I'm not a computer expert :) ), and it worked straight away. It tells me I'm getting max. signal strength, and I've noticed no difference in performance compared to the ethernet cable.
I'm pleased with it so far..

Rated 5 out of 5 by JoeS Works Perfectly
Bought this to replace a TP-Link adaptor and it is amazing. Running on the 5ghz band and as far as I am aware 802.11n on my stock virgin router, and there is almost no difference between this and a wired connection. Reached download speeds through steam as high as 6gb/s.
Extremely reliable as well, not one issue with it yet.
Great ease of use and picks up wireless access points a few doors down too.
You really do get what you pay for when it comes to these.
Only down side was it didn't have a silica gel bag in the box so there was condensation which left a slight mark on the outer gold plated antenna parts on the adaptor itself. However there was no sign of damage any where else.
