Recommend PCIe WiFi adapter

Hi,

Any recommendations for PCIe WiFi adapter that can be bought online? No time to make a trip down to Sim Lim. I checked Lazada and many of them are brandless. I found the following that are from TP-Link, or at least use known chipsets. Are any of them good?

Nice, is this legit though? Looks brandless. Any reviews?

Didn't check the reviews.
But intel normally their drivers are quite solid one. So no worries.

Thanks. Noob question, but I'm looking at my motherboard now and it seems that my graphics card is blocking 1 of my PCI-Express X1 slots, and the other one is dangerously near the fan. I still have a PCI-Express X4 slot that's fairly open. The WiFi adapters all look to be X1 cards. Do they work in X4 slots though?

Thanks. I also see some NGFF WiFi adapters, those are M.2 right? Maybe a better idea as I have 1 more available M.2.

Are there differences between a NGFF adapter such as https://www.lazada.sg/products/dual-...298646049.html

Compared to the PCI Express one recommended by uncle_josh? https://www.lazada.sg/products/for-i...884288480.html

The NGFF one will plug into an M.2 socket right? Where do the antennas go though? From the product picture there doesn't seem to be a bracket.

Nope, the regular M.2 slot for NVMe/Sata drive is different from the M.2 slot for WiFi.
