Really pleased with this monitor. I have many more expensive monitors and this one stands up very well. Excellent bit of kit...

My 10 year old and I set this up. CPU is on 3rd floor and Linksys router is in basement. Almost full bars on card once installed. Easy instructions, easy setup, great reception, no problems
Good signal strength
Very easy to install and configure
Easy install and works good
I bought this card to solve weak signal dropping signal issues. As far as I can tell the issues has drastically improved. (not completely, but a noticeable improvement)
A bit pricey
This card DID NOT boost signal at all. My regular netgear card got better signal
The antennas are smaller and the connectors on the back of the card are smaller, thus rendering my
LINKSYS A 2TNC Antenna Stand for TNC Connectors useless. Its not a SMA connector either. There does not appear to be a stand available
None really, it worked right away and I haven't had to adjust anything
