Compatible Wi-Fi card for macOS and is plug and play with Linux as well. Had to download drivers from TP-Link website for Windows though.

Was quite excited to test this card out but I was disappointed quickly finding out after I purchased this that unlike the ASUS AC68 this card will not see the Higher Channels of my AC3200 Router. So on the lower channels I get reasonable throughput but not what I should be, as the lower channels are more congested from the other lower end AC WiFi devices. only getting 400Mbps in one room away with these channels. The Intel Wireless-AC 7260 in my media PC in the same roon gets 400Mbps on the lower channels but on my higher channel on my router it gets its 867Mbps and out performs this card, very bad design by TP-Link next time ill pick up the ASUS AC68. Possible Firmware fix as is uses the same Chip as the ASUS but none have been released. My Router is a D-Link DIR-890L.

This is a great wireless card. Almost no difference between this and wired for downloads.. Uploads are lacking compared to wired however.

This was a later addition to my build, so far seems good - although it did randomly drop out once in Windows 10 not long after install but hasn't happened recently.
Funnily enough, it worked natively in my El Capitan hackintosh install, however it needed me to download the drivers from manufacturer website in Windows 10. Quite ironic. Regardless, it has better wifi reception than my Macbook Pro. Would recommend.

Very good adapter. Looks good. Doesn't have a long cable. Works great with solid specs. Works with Windows 10. Don't buy if you don't have a good internet connection and router. Better off with the cheapest ac adapter, if that is the case.

At first, I chose the PCE-AC68 wifi adapter from Asus but it didn't work for me. The wifi keep dropping after 30 mins. After days of frustration, I finally pick the TP-Link Archer T9E and it work stable and fast.

I know that it's always best to go wired, but it's not practicable due to the location of my PC. The T9E performs very well when it connects and seems to pick up a strong signal despite the distance. I'm able to max my 350 Megabit connection. Sometimes however it will get stuck in a unable to connect loop and the only way to resolve it is to disable and then enable the device again. After a bit of online research, I can see that others have had similar problems.
