I needed high speed wifi, I have TB of photos on my LAN on a NAS which feed to Lightroom on my PC.
I bought the Asus 1900 4x4 wireless AP as the other end and by simply lining up the aerials I achieved pretty stable 1300 mpbs link. It is clearly not the constraining factor now in movement of large files which is faster than in my wired gigabit LAN from my old PC. I get maybe 80Mpbs just drag and drop in Windows file manager.
You do need to install software/drivers from CD, you won't get default drivers getting it going in my experience, but this is not a flaw just a note. Really happy with this, really pleasantly surprised how fast it is

Rated 5 out of 5 by Adamski Great WiFi Card
Purchased this to put a spare desktop PC in a room which was too far away for a fixed line connection. Easy to install and works like a dream with a very strong wifi connection.

Can't recommend this highly enough - works great on windows 10 with drivers downloaded from Asus website. fantastic quality build from card through to aerials. if you are on the fence about this just go ahead and get it. Great delivery and comms from Scan as always.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sheppo performs as expected
Performs exactly as expected. The external antennae is very useful as when the antennae are plugged directly in to the back of the card I had a poor signal – likely due to proximity to the cabling, and my overclocked PC. The included software is the usual level of ASUS quirkiness, and on Windows 10 at least, drivers are needed. They’re only included on optical disc, so if you device does not have an optical drive you may have issues.

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.
