    Is there any difference in quality and lifespan? The USB ones on newegg seem to be a little cheaper. Any brand recommendations?

    hypothetically, PCI is faster.

    a benefit to the USB adaptors is the antenna can be better positioned.

    Pretty much. However, some PCI adapters do come with an external antenna that can be placed up on a desk or whatever.
