Reviews around speed (4.24 of 5)

  • Speed and reliability of the connection is great, fantastic
  • The good:This device and its antenna, powered by the Intel 7260 AC wireless adapter, gets a stronger signal from my N router than my previous Intel Centrino 6300N (which had 3 hi-gain, dual-band antennas, and was also connected through a PCI-e adapter).The bad and the ugly
  • Slow WiFi speeds, not dual band, etc - cheap garbage despite being only $10 cheaper than the Gigabyte card
  • My main concern was if this would slow down the speed of the internet and cause my ping to go up but it actually runs just as well as being hardwired into the router
  • This wi-fi card worked perfectly well on my Ubuntu (15.04) desktop, but had horrible download speeds on my Win7 (64x) desktop with identical parts

Reviews around work (4.03 of 5)

  • The bluetooth part of the card works great and can work at distances over 15 or 20 ft

Reviews around adapter (3.92 of 5)

  • You're probably better off getting a dinky $8 bluetooth adapter, forfeiting a USB port on your computer, and buying a better card for your WiFi.
  • Fast wifi and on board bluetooth with out a usb adapter
  • Bluetooth continues to work, but the Wifi adapter sometimes works, sometimes works intermittently, and sometimes does not appear at all
  • I bought an adapter from TP-LINK and it works just fine,
  • I rarely experience any issues and the signal strength is much better than my previous USB WiFi adapter

Reviews around antenna (3.90 of 5)

  • The antenna is a bit bulky, however, it has a magnetic grip on the base so you can really stick it to any metal part of your case
  • Dual band support is great and the magnetic antenna is great
  • So I'm docking one star for the mediocre stock antenna, but it does have one redeeming quality in that it's base is magnetic, and pretty strong at that
  • The antenna seems to work great and it being detachable, magnetic and multi-directional, are all amazing features.
  • The case has magnetically attached air filters (which are quite nifty) but that means if I were to set the antenna on top and then knock it over or move it, it would move the filter with it

Reviews around wifi (3.90 of 5)

  • Wifi and bluetooth are working good with the single antenna
  • the Bluetooth will work but you will have no luck connecting the wifi
  • No problems or interference using WiFi, while connected to multiple bluetooth devices
  • However, when they are both turned on, the WIFI goes haywire, so I usually keep the Bluetooth off.
  • This card has been perfect so far (both wifi and bluetooth).

Reviews around bluetooth (3.57 of 5)

  • bluetooth works great and wifi reception is great as well.

Reviews around connection (3.41 of 5)

  • I do like that this card can do 5ghz but its useless when it doesn't work up to speed and my connection will go slow sometimes too
  • For now I am using only the wifi portion of the card and getting a solid connection and fast speeds.
  • The connection is great when it works, but it only works about 50% of the time
  • Bluetooth and wifi keep a solid connection and haven't had any issues so far
  • Wow, what a difference over usb even on a slow connection

Reviews around motherboard (3.04 of 5)

  • Don't buy this unless you have a funky shaped motherboard.
  • Without a doubt, this dual band WiFi/Bluetooth 4.0 W/ antenna is as good as or better than anything I've used in the past 2 years
  • The WiFi is working great, it's about as fast as with an ethernet connection (or at least I haven't noticed the difference).I'm just having issues with the bluetooth.
  • and my motherboard hasn't had any problems in the four years I've had it.
  • what's the point of that when I bought it for AC-Band connectivity?In summary, I think this card fried one of my PCIe slots on my ultra-expensive motherboard.

Reviews around driver issue (3.00 of 5)

  • I dont know if it my motherboard just not having the correct port for the f-usb connection or a driver issue.
  • (normally I get like 2MB/s if I'm lucky on my Win 10 laptop connected to the same 5 GHz network)
  • Maybe it's a Windows 10 vs 7 driver issue, maybe the PCI-Express card interface is the issue, maybe the Intel card developed Alzheimer's, maybe the gods look unfavorably upon it
  • Bluetooth stopped working a few months after purchase.edit: must have been a Windows 10 driver issue
  • I suspected a driver issue and wasted time downloading drivers

Reviews around lag (2.65 of 5)

  • The WiFi is working great, it's about as fast as with an ethernet connection (or at least I haven't noticed the difference).I'm just having issues with the bluetooth.
  • ac1200 adapter (good luck finding one at this price) and have horrible lag as well
  • BT headphones and so forth have always had great connection to Kindle and iPhone, but the lag THIS device has on PC for audio is horrible and this card causes tons of interference on wi-fi bands (trying to load and listen to a YouTube video is pointless with this card and BT earbuds)
  • Arrived on time, works as you would expect it to, fit nicely into the slot
  • How a primary device that's dedicated to a task all its own can have so much lag is bewildering to me

Reviews around drive (2.18 of 5)

  • and then I ran into issues with windows 10 and ended up having to format my hard drive to reinstall it decided to try and use the card
  • By not installing the 330MB Intel software, you can save some hard drive space and the card works just fine.
  • Finally I went and downloaded Gigabyte's software (only because I lack an optical drive, you can probably just go ahead and pop the disk in), and the problem disappeared entirely
  • I was a little alarmed by this, as I have always been paranoid about magnets and hard drives
  • The good:This device and its antenna, powered by the Intel 7260 AC wireless adapter, gets a stronger signal from my N router than my previous Intel Centrino 6300N (which had 3 hi-gain, dual-band antennas, and was also connected through a PCI-e adapter).The bad and the ugly
