Rated 5 out of 5 by tiliam Excellent speed and range
First card I received had real issues connecting to 5ghz channels, but the replacement card is behaving much better. Am seeing speeds over 800mbit connecting to router on a different floor, which is plenty fast enough (on 5ghz band to an AC router).
I don't think that the cable length for the antenna stand is too short (which many people comment on) - it can reach from the bottom slot on my Corsair 800D case to the front at the top of the case which is good.
One word of caution for anyone looking to use this on a 5ghz channel in a busy area - the card only supports 5ghz channels 36-48 so if those are already in use it won't be able to connect to a 5ghz channel. Shame as my DSL-AC86 router supports a lot more 5ghz channels.

The Wi-Fi link speed and range is just unbelievable. The link is also very reliable. I haven't experienced any connection drops or driver issues on both Windows 8.1 and Ubuntu 14.04. The magnetic stand for the antennas is also pretty handy. Asus really did a good job with this one.

Wifi connection is always flawless on 5 Ghz and 2.4 Ghz bands. It had increased my download speed from 50 Mbps to 110 Mbps since moving to the Asus PCE-AC68. Brilliant product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Monkeyman Cracking bit of kit!
I have Sky Fibre Pro with Sky's own pathetic Hub (SR102). I was only getting around 25Mbps and 2 floors up it was lower than that.
Purchased a Netgear NightHawk router (using Sky Hub as modem only now) and needed a decent wireless AC adaptor for my PC.
Read the professional reviews about the Asus PCE-AC68 and for £20 more than a USB adaptor took the plunge & bought it.
What a good move!
Wireless speed now around 62-68Mbps with 10-10ms ping times. Signal is always at full strength 2 floors up.

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.
