    What are you going to do with it? :eek:
    I was actually waiting for 19260 to upgrade (not going to happen ever, it seems - or at least before they roll out 802.11ay), so stuck with 18260 for now.

    Well I can't sell it to any of y'all since shipping would cost me thrice the price of the actual card. Remember I'm in Dubai so I'll just let it collect dust or keep it as a backup card.

    @Phoenix I thought maybe you have some interesting setup, warranting such hardware instead of e.g. X8.

    oh not really. I just live in a big house and need the max coverage I need. The X8 was about 250 USD cheaper but then I'm like screw it, lemme get the best and not have any buyer's remorse.

    what I am noticing so far other than the speedtest.net benchmarks. My internet overall is much snappier than when I was using the ASUS RT-AC88U. 0 lag when connecting to sites and like I just installed Office 2016 via the online download file in less than 2 mins.

    I hated the fact that the ASUS RT-AC88U and all other ASUS for that matter sometimes when you reset them to factory defaults, they don't actually do a full reset unless you do the 30-30-30 seconds reset method and lemme tell you that is a pain in the butt to perform especially if you're a person with 0 patience like me

    Be smart...be like Phoenix... :eek:

    Maybe you will get hands on it faster if you opt for Alienware?:D

    From the link... “The first product to come out of Rivet Networks’ new partnership with Intel, the Killer™ Wireless-AC 1550 is the world’s fastest 2x2 11ac wireless networking adapter. Dell’s Alienware laptops be sold with Killer 1550 Wireless networking and MSI will be implementing it as well.”
