Rated 4 out of 5 by Moir Allowed Win 10 upgrade to proceed
The wifi on this card works very well but as half expected the Bluetooth does not work at all. This card was purchased to allow a Samsung Notebook RV511 to be successfully upgraded to Windows 10. The standard card fitted by Samsung was causing the Win10 upgrade to hang on reboot. Many users reported the Bluetooth part of the card did not work except on approved laptops so I was not surprised to find this was true.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TheRef Allows Samsung RF series laptops to upgrade from Win 7 to Win 10
This was used to replace a Broadcom card fitted in a Windows 7 Samsung RF710 laptop which was non-compatible with Windows 10. Fitting is very simple, after opening the case of the laptop, instructions and video for which are shown on the web. Windows 10 then loads without crashing, the drivers were not found automatically though and needed down loading manually from Intel. This should be a solution for upgrading the range of Samsung laptops previously not compatible with Windows 10.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dom1993 Worthy upgrade
Easy installation and works without any configuration. Only issue found is my laptop occasionally takes a while to post on boot. Enabling fast startup and hibernation in Windows 8 seems to fix this issue.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Appenlad Not for Acers
After much difficulty I found this product was incompatible with Acer laptops. This is because it is not in the BIOS 'whitelist'. I have never come across this before because I always build my own rigs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AntoineSansclef Great wi-fi card upgrade
This Wi-Fi card has given a new lease of life to my old (treasured) Medion akoya netbook. Linking to my BT Home-hub5, I am now able to access 5MHz Wi-Fi, giving me a Wi-Fi speed of an amazing 867 Mbps (previously 54 Mbps on 2.4 MHz, and also gives Blue-tooth capability.
Downloaded the drivers from the Intel support website - no bother.
Fitting was an issue - replacing a full height card with this half height version. solution was to source an adapter bracket (£3.99 via Amazon) see below. Perhaps Scan could offer this in the future.
JUSTOP Half to Full Height Mini PCI Express (PCI-E) Card Bracket Adapter £3.99 from Amazon. This comes with the tiny screws to fasten the card to the bracket, but reuse the original (bigger) screw to fasten the card and bracket to the motherboard. It's a bit of a fiddle - but well worth it.
Original two antennae just press on to the small press-stud type terminals on the card.
Would have put the card into my new 6 week old acer i7 laptop, but bottled out in case I damaged anything, so upgraded the Akoya instead, which already has SSD!
This is a must upgrade to give ac Wi-Fi capability if your router will deliver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by frosty wifi card does a great job
I bought this product because my factory fitted item kept dropping out and was very annoying . I've had this card about a month now and it's been fantastically reliable. ..... A great purchase
