So i've been a big hater on anything wireless. I would have gbit switches throughout the house and use cat5e or cat6 cables. I had multiple devices like mediaplayers, gaming consoles, laptops, tablets, smartphones you name it.
When we moved to a new place, it was no longer feasible/realistic to use cables so I made the switch.
Most devices at that point were already connected to wifi, like my gaming console, laptop etc.
The one thing i kept wired was my fileserver/virtualization machine. But having a server close to the router means its in the living room which i just wanted to get rid off. So i got this wireless adapter and behold, i'm getting full speed on 5ghz. Even after moving it to the basement i'm still getting very close to max speed and very good reception. I'm surprised how well it works.
I dont notice any high cpu uses or interrupts locking up, the response time is very good and overall the file transfers are fast and stable.
I can download linux iso's on usenet with 8 threads and 20mb/s so no complaints.
Only downside is that you need a cd/dvd-rom to load the drivers, or get them online.
The chipset is Realtek 8812BU if you feel like getting the drivers somewhere else.
Overall, very nice product!
