Is this a safe buy?

Only a three-egg average from 21 people on Newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...121&cm_sp=. But, it has a 4.6 out of 5 star review on Amazon from 68 customers: https://www.amazon.com/Rosewill-R...n%2Fac#Ask.

I bought this TP-LINK PCI-Express Adapter from Fry's a little under 30 days ago, so I'm wondering if I should return the adapter I bought for this one since the adapter on sale currently provides an additional 433 Mbps on a 5.0 GHz frequency and an additional 200 Mbps on a 2.4 GHz frequency: http://frys.com/search?search_typ...g=8730881/.

Not that I'd ever need 600 Mbps over 400 Mbps, as my current internet plan only supports download speeds of up to 50 Mbps (a huge improvement over the 3 Mbps speeds I had before), but if the two products are the same price, I might as well get the higher performing one, as long as it has reputable reviews. But, the Newegg reviews are discouraging me from making the one-hour drive to Fry's to return the TP-LINK AC1300 adapter I bought last month and buy the one on Newegg that's on sale now.

Every product can have issues, even the well reviewed ones. This one can ship via ShopRunner or Premier and you have 30 days to return it for a refund. Returns should be free with both SR and Premier. Get it. Test the hell out of it in the first few days with constant transfers or some such. If you're happy with it then keep it. If not, return it.

I'm still building the PC, since I've been waiting for that MSI Z170-A Pro motherboard to go on sale again for $80 and for some RAM, so I don't know how long it'll be before I can test things out. I forgot that it was Shoprunner, though, so the free returns will help give me peace of mind. Thank you for the quick response.

What is the driver support like?

I've bought add on adapters in the past but weak Windows driver support has often led to blue screens or horrible experiences with Win update bricking the networking setup.

I know it's going to be twice the price, but I suggest getting a good ac1900 router instead and run it in wireless client or bridge mode. No driver issues, and it's more useful in the future.

Newegg also has the same exact model the T9E from TP Link that this is a rip off of for the same price... If you are worried about the reliability just get the TP Link one with far superior reviews.

Perfect timing, was wanting this exact card. Thanks OP! Big Grin People frowning at the Rosewill brand should remember that this is exactly the same device as TP-Link Archer T9E as the OP said. You can even use the same drivers, I've heard (will test myself).

Because tax in CA, this ended up being $48.36 for me.

Um... Isn't the TP-Link $60 AC? That's $15 more.... http://slickdeals.net/f/8979891-asus-ea-n66r-gigabit-ethernet-3-in-1-dual-band-wireless-n900-adapter-20-free-shipping
And yeah, rebrand is just that--a rebrand. The name is the only thing that makes the TP link "better." Build quality will be identical, but the placebo may be worth it for some.

Somehow didn't catch this on FP. Looks to be well worth it.

Rosewill is the Newegg house brand. Their products are decent quality if nothing special and usually one of the best deals around.

Just checking back in to let you guys know that I can confirm the TP-LINK driver does indeed work with this card. Installed without a hitch!
