To elucidate slightly:

PCI adapter plugs into the motherboard of a desktop computer.
USB connects via USB socket of desktop or laptop.

General feeling is that PCI works better, perhaps because the circuit can draw more power, perhaps because there's facility for an external antenna. Drawback is that PCI can be tricky to install -- no, not just opening the case -- sometimes PCI causes resource clashes which must be unpicked.
