I tried to go cheaper on ebay route first. I got an adapter that only had 3 antenna's because i could not find any with 4. first mistkae.
Second mistake, even though seller said it was from an imac, it ended up being same card in all regards except it was an OEM DELL card, so it wouldn't load bluetooth in OS X without kext hacking but then handoff didn't work since it wasn't an apple vendor card.
The price from the link i gave was worth it considering i ended up with 3 useless wifi cards and other issues. The "shady" link has solid email support, tests cards before sending and will even prove it's a genuine imac card. You aren't just buying adapter you get adapter plus card plus it's pre built. Priced high sure but if you go cheap, you may have to do the soldering yourself or have parts that don't actually work. So It's just for the sake of ease I suppose.
Heck FYI, the seller that sent me a bad Dell Oem card on ebay, was the one linked as an example in the netkas post, so yeah.
Totally understand that. He came up with a niche and he is making money out of it. So far so good... The problem is that, that is not the case. He is literally ripping people off by charging twice as much as what it's worth for just the assembly of the parts. There is putting your bit on the top for producing the goods and then theres going overboard by ripping people off. Have you noticed that the price is actually $150, reduced to $100? **** take. If he was covering his costs and making his little bit on the side I would not have a problem with that and I would buy one. He isn't and I think it's a disgrace charging those prices when he knows most people that turn to hackintoshing are on a budget and want to have a near OS X experience for as little as possible, if that was not the case people would buy Macs instead. But, like you said, it's all for the sake of convenience. There are more sellers that state that the device is an Apple device, not compatible. Also on ebay if the goods are not as described you would just send it back.
