I can recommend it for everyone who doesn't need ac wifi and does not want to mess with MP's Wifi and BT internal cards.

I was browsing in Safari on my Mac Pro with the USB Bluetooth 4 (BT 'on') and noticed that I have got a Safari icon on my i Phone's lock screen! Silly me, forgot to turn the i Phone's BT on at one point :) Anyway this little thing gives me all the features I want from yosemity.

Cheers, Stefan"(Updated 10/22/2014 for OS X 10.10.0 Yosemite notes) After updating to OS X Yosemite, this Asus card now works flawlessly.
