Very fast. Cant compare this to other higher quality cards but I will just say on the desktop I replaced (Gateway I bought from Best Buy 5 years ago) I was getting about 30Mbps down. With this card I am getting over 230Mbps down. My computer is on the opposite side of a single family house from the router. The old desktop could not even see the 5G network. This card is getting full signal on the 5G network.

The drivers for the AC adapters are terrible. Unfinished, ugly, glitchy, and do absolutely nothing. Performance is very good though otherwise. Heatsink also looks great, and fits with the build.

It claims to be fastest WIFI PCI-E adapter. I would admit that, but the noise coming from this is annoying( Yes, it have noise as well as stylish passive cooling plate).

Do not have Ethernet run to my PC location, so wireless is my only option to avoid ugly cables of banging up the walls! This wifi card is FAST! Very very fast, i get full upload / download specs on my broadband (85/85) continuously using speedtest, real world usage is great - no lag of dropping connection

Great adapter! I'm finally getting the speed I should be from my internet. Since swapping from my laptop to this, I've has lower ping, higher speeds, and no network hiccups so to speak. Installed like a breeze, just popped in the driver disc and I had wireless in 30 seconds.

Best wireless adapter I have ever owned. A little bit pricey but you get what you pay for. I personally think this is the best option if you want fast internet and can't get a wired connection.
