This card ships with the low profile bracket. Thus it's suitable for small form factor (sff) desktop pcs Applause

Depending on the brand, USB adapters can get very hot and they can burn the USB port. If you are a desktop person and you have an empty PCIe slot - then get this. Keep the USB slot for something temporary, not permanent.

From the Q&A page at the provided link:

Q: Does the chipset work with linux? Or does it use one that refuses to allow driver integration?

BEST ANSWER: It's a Broadxom chipset. I have gotten them to work with the proprietary Linux binary drivers from Broadcom, but I don't believe any distros support it out of the box.

a lot of these adapters are probably gonna start dropping in price in the next six or so months due to wifi 6 rolling out.

A USB-based adapter would be a dollar or two at most. How is this better?

That's true. Also, USB adapters usually aren't as fast as a network card, and even if they are, they'd be much more expensive (USB 3.0 e.g.)

But you need to buy an Antenna for it if you want better signal.

Are those antenna any different than the 3 coming out of the older cards?

To the guy above that asked about the USB version - I transfer stuff from USB3 drives often, and I notice some lag/freezes on my connection when I use USB wifi and downloading full speed while trying to access my USB drives. No such problem with my PCIe WIFI adapter.
