PROS: This card went into an nettop, Aspire Revo 1600 that came with no networking card but an mini pci-express card slot. It fit right in and was recognized by Windows 7 out of the box. If you're replacing a laptop wireless card then you should already have an antenna wired inside.
CONS: If you're planning to install this card where non previously existed keep in mind that the card itself will be useless without the antenna, which is not included in the box. Go on eBay and pick an antenna up for five dollars or less.
I received a "HALF" size PCI-E card (1" x 1 3/16")
Not able to use, would not lock down in my PC.
PROS: Fast ship
CONS: Not as pictured or described.
gona see if i can install this on my brother laptop but i am sure it will work fine
the customer service tried to help on this but with no success
CONS: this device did not work
PROS: Price was right.
CONS: The original and the replacement came with a missing antenna connector.
PROS: Great price, functional adapter
CONS: range isn't the best, and doesn't come with antennas but that wasn't a problem for me
Overall recommendation, if you need an inexpensive network adapter for basic surfing and email then this is the card for you. If you are going to stream video or gaming then I would not recommend, which kind of defeats the purpose of having an N-adapter. This is going to be my first Monoprice Return.
FYI: I did purchase the USB N-adapter and works great! Product ID: 5333. My wife has had no problems with it on her computer. I was just hoping for a non-USB dongle N-Speed solution.
PROS: Cost, Compatibility.
CONS: Unable to get device to show up in driver software in Mac Lion. Works perfectly in Windows 7.
In Windows XP it took forever to find the driver using Windows Update, so I had to do a websearch to find the driver and download it, which took awhile. It would be nice if Monoprice would add a link to the driver.
On a few laptops I had to cut the card to half height, which was a little tricky, scoring or perforations would be nice.
If not for those minor issues, I'd rate it a 10.
I do plan on ordering 70 more.
PROS: Low cost
Easy install in Windows 7
CONS: No perforation or scoring to make cutting it to half height easier
Drivers for Windows XP were a bit difficult to find
PROS: It arrived promptly and was exactly what I ordered.
