The GT Ultra Express is the cousin of the Option GT Ultra. If they were competing in a beauty pageant, the GT Ultra Express would win. It’s got the chic expresscard format that newer laptops support and is a bit slimmer.

Outside of superficial differences, they literally do the same thing. Get on the internet at the same speed. Nothing too flashy there. As far as ExpressCards go, the Kyocera KPC680 beats them hands down. It’s compatible with everything.

By itself, the GT Ultra Express is a solid card with 3G speeds. When compared to other cards, it’s so so. You can pick it up for free here.
