Hey all,

Just wanted to let you guys know that it appears that Amazon suddenly has a stock of Broadcom BCM94352Z, which is the same wireless AC and Bluetooth 4.0 Combo card that we all know and love. The difference here is that this chip is in a NGFF M.2 form factor, which is great for many newer laptops and personally, my GA-X99-UD4, which has a native WiFi port on the board that accepts an M.2 WiFi card and has antenna built into the I/O Shield.

I've placed an order for myself, but the chip is coming from China and shipping estimates show a delivery on October 2nd, at the earliest. I am hoping it doesn't take that long so that I can report back and let you guys know if it's worth the investment. I've actually tried to order this chip from China before through taobao, but the seller was actually out of stock. Hopefully, this one will come through.

I know how tough it is to get these Wireless Cards, so I figured I'd let you all know and pray for the best.

I will report back, hopefully with good news, when the chip arrives.

Looks like a get rich scheme for the seller...

The Dell 1560 can be ordered direct from Dell by phone. I think price is $20...

Morning, all!

Just wanted to update you guys - the BCM94352Z shipped from China is in fact a DW1560. The shipping was actually unbearable. Over a month from order to arrival. However, it does work fine. Though, I would probably just order this from Dell at this point. Cheaper, faster. See RehabMan's link above.

Works great. Handoff, Wireless AC.

Hey! I have a question for you InsaneCultist! I have the same Mobo as you and the same DW1560. What antenna/cables did you buy for this thing to attach to the I/O shield? I want to make sure I am buying compatible ones. If you could let me know, that'd be great. Thanks!

Same here. I got the card working, but no Bluetooth devices are showing, apparently an antenna is needed and the one that came with my motherboard doesn't seem to work...
