    Pros: It has speeded up internet loading

    Cons: Some will throw up their hands or return as I almost did as instructions didn't get you to operational status

    Works very well.
    No detailed instructions
    I played around for 20 minutes until I got lucky.

    Doesn't work correctly with Mac 10.11 as stated

    Does not work directly with the built-in Network Control Panel. Will technically see and connect to an AC AP, but packet loss is high for an AP that is 14 feet from the computer, and the resulting connection speed is less than 1/10th real world AC speeds of other Macs I have with built-in AC adapters. Worthless waste of time to purchase this for a Mac.

    Thank you for your review and I am truly sorry for the inconvenience you've encountered with the packet loss, we do have other laptops available so if you prefer. I can assist you in obtaining a return or on the off chance you have obtained a defective adapter. Did you want to try a replacement to see if it'll work better? Please let me know, thank you!

    Pros: Price good. Works well in both bands.

    Cons: Very poor instructions.

    Product worked well after I finally got it set up. Instructions that came with the adapter were very very poor. Price was very good.
