Here's an unboxing video if you want to see exactly what you'll get in the box. Is in Portuguese not English. You can enable Captions and then auto-translate into your language. Won't be perfect but better than nothing. The build quality looks to be excellent. Just like the FV-T919.

What's the difference between them? What's the difference of $ 20? Speed, range? If it doesn't matter, I'm going to buy a cheap model.

The simple way to decide. If you're paying for 1Gb internet speeds or higher go with FV-T919.
If you have slower internet go with the less expensive HB1200. I think that BT range is the same.

Any idea if this card will work on the Gigabyte H77N-Wifi MB? I seem to recall an issue with the particular PCI slot on this board.
No reason it won't work in a x16 slot just as well as in a x1.

Confirmed. Initially wifi worked but no BlueTooth. I deleted my /Library/Preferences/com.apple.BlueTooth.plist, restarted, and reconnected my Apple keyboard. I did lose my front USB ports due to only having one available USB 2 header on the MB but that's OK, plenty on the back for my needs.

I just updated to Catalina 10.15.0, and this card is still working just fine for bluetooth and wifi.
